Despite a disappointing inaugural Big 12 campaign, the Cincinnati Bearcats should keep it competitive against the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday evening!

Prior to meeting in the regular season finale, the new Big 12 opponents have played two games in the past with each program winning at their home stadium.

Scott Satterfield’s team should stay within striking distance but it will be difficult to pull off the upset over a quality opponent in the regular season finale.

The Bearcats first game against Kansas resulted in a 23-18 loss in 1995 before recording a 34-7 victory over the Jayhawks at Nippert Stadium back in 1997.
