Cincinnati Bearcats head coach Scott Satterfield looked ahead to the upcoming matchup with the UCF Knights in a recent pregame press conference.

Following an impressive start to the regular season, Cincinnati is still searching for their first Big 12 win after suffering a sixth consecutive loss last week.

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

The initial season under Satterfield has been a huge disappointment as Cincinnati hasn’t won since early September and remain winless in the Big 12.

Cincinnati should be able to keep it competitive this week but it definitely won’t be easy for the defense to slow down UCF’s high-powered rushing attack.

Gus Malzahn’s offense currently leads the Big 12 with 227.0 rushing yards per game and is expected to pose a legit threat for Bryan Brown’s defense.

Since becoming conference rivals during their time in the AAC throughout the last decade, the teams have split eight previous meetings with a 4-4 record.

The former AAC rivals are scheduled to face off for the ninth time in school history as each program is hoping to earn the first ever victory in Big 12 play.
