Cincinnati Bearcats coach Scott Satterfield looked ahead to the road trip to face the Big 12 opponent Houston Cougars in a pregame press conference.

Despite suffering a seventh consecutive loss and remaining winless in Big 12 play, Cincinnati could have an opportunity to pull off a notable upset.

Houston has struggled defensively with the 13th ranked defense in the conference so the Bearcats should take advantage of that on Saturday night.

In addition to potentially keeping the win streak alive against Houston, the Bearcats are hoping to finally secure the first Big 12 victory in program history.

During a recent press conference, Satterfield looked ahead to the road trip to Houston and goals for the remainder of the campaign via Cincinnati Athletics.

The conference rivals have a storied history dating back to the first ever meeting in 1957 with Houston holding a 15-13 all-time lead over the Bearcats.

"“We just want to continue to improve and do the things it takes to win games. We’re going to play three teams that are very solid and we have two of them on the road so obviously it is going to be challenging. If we continue to grow as a team and get better, we are going to have a chance to win. We want to see growth from these guys. We have a lot of guys coming back so continuing to grow as we finish this season is going to help propel us into the offseason. We go to Houston this week and look forward to playing this game. Obviously we aren’t going to a bowl, which is very disappointing. We can’t stand it but we’re still trying to win this game. We’re trying to win the last three. We want to finish on a strong note and play for the seniors that have been in this program for many years, and I want to send them out the right way.”"
