Even though the inaugural Big 12 campaign has been a big disappointment, the Bearcats are looking to cap it off with a critical win over Kansas on Senior Day!

Kiner posted a game-high 129 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Pace totaled a team-high five tackles in the Bearcats recent win at Houston.

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 Cincinnati native surpassed the 100-yard mark for a second consecutive game and inched closer to securing the first 1,000-yard campaign of his career.
