During the pregame press conference in recent days, Satterfield previewed the matchup at West Virginia and explained the game plan per Cincinnati Athletics.

Kiner put up a game-high 129 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Young recorded five tackles and a pivotal pass deflection in the inaugural Big 12 win.

"“We’re having guys play their best games this late in the season which is awesome. We want to continue that as we move forward going to West Virginia this week. They have six wins to this point. I think the strength in their team is the offensive line. Those guys are really good up front and are one of the top rushing teams in the country this year. They have two really good running backs. One big back and another freshman that’s showing some good stuff this year. Very good, solid wide receivers, and their quarterback plays extremely hard. They are a good team. They didn’t play their best against Oklahoma but it will be senior day for them so we know they will want to get that taste out of their mouth and that we’ll get their best shot.”"
