Cincinnati Bearcats sophomore running back Myles Montgomery is finding success but the losing streak continued against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

It was a frustrating outing as the Bearcats defense allowed Oklahoma State running back Ollie Gordon to total 271 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Montgomery finished with a team-high 90 rushing yards and one touchdown but it wasn’t enough to help propel Cincinnati to the first ever Big 12 win.

The Florida product showed off his big play ability with a 63-yard touchdown to tie it early on before exiting with an injury late in the second quarter.

Bearcats back up quarterback Brady Lichtenberg replaced Emory Jones in the fourth quarter after Jones had just 117 yards and one interception.

Cincinnati safety Bryon Threats added a team-best nine tackles, and cornerback Jordan Young recorded three total tackles and one interception in the loss.

Following an impressive start to the regular season, the Bearcats are still searching for their first Big 12 victory after suffering a disappointing losing streak.

Scott Satterfield’s team continues to struggle in Big 12 play with a sixth consecutive loss and the longest skid for the program in over two decades.

It appeared the Bearcats would stay within reach in the second half but Oklahoma State compiled three touchdowns in the third quarter to take a 31-7 lead.

Oklahoma State racked up an impressive 601 total yards including 315 rushing yards, while Cincinnati failed to move the ball consistently after halftime.

Stay tuned for coverage in the coming days as the Bearcats gets ready to host UCF at home with both teams attempting to secure a much-needed win.

The first season under Satterfield has been a huge disappointment as Cincinnati hasn’t won a game in nearly two months with an 0-5 record in the Big 12.
