UCF-USF to air in primetime on ESPN
UCF's Nov. 29 home game against USF will kickoff at 8 p.m. on ESPN, the school announced late Saturday.
Earlier in the day, the No. 15 Knights (8-1, 5-0) inched closer to the American Athletic Conference title with a dramatic come-from-behind 39-36 win at Temple. UCF scored 10 points with 1:06 remaining, capped off by Shawn Moffitt's game-winning field goal as time expired.
If the Knights beat Rutgers next Thursday, a win vs. USF could potentially clinch the league title and BCS berth, provided one-loss Cincinnati drops next week's game at Houston. Regardless, UCF controls their own destiny with three games left to play.
The "Black Friday" game is being promoted by UCF's marketing department as a "blackout." Coach George O'Leary has hinted the Knights could wear all-black attire for the game: Black jerseys, black pants and their alternate black helmet.
USF holds a 4-0 advantage in the all-time series, but the two in-state rivals have not met since the 2008 season. The Bulls (2-7, 2-3) dropped their third consecutive game within the American on Saturday, losing to Memphis 23-10.
