Week 13 Preview
All eyes will be on No. 17 UCF (8-1, 5-0) as the Knights' game against Rutgers (5-4, 2-3) gets top billing as ESPN's Thursday Game of the Week.
Kickoff from Bright House Networks Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m. featuring the network's broadcast team of Rece Davis, Jesse Palmer, David Pollack and Kaylee Hartung.
UCF's BCS dreams are still intact following last Saturday's 39-36 come-from-behind victory at Temple. As the league's only unbeaten team, the Knights continue to control their own destiny to win the American and would move one step closer with a win against the Scarlet Knights.
Rutgers has gone through a rough stretch, losing three of their last four games, and have been embroiled in controversy as a former player went public last week accusing defensive coordinator Dave Cohen of bullying.
Another game with possible title implications is Cincinnati's visit to Houston on Saturday. The Bearcats (8-2, 5-1) don't play UCF this season, but could potentially receive the league's BCS bid should they win out and UCF drops one game.
UCF, if they beat Rutgers and Houston beats Cincinnati, could potentially clinch the league title and BCS bid the following week against USF.
Elsewhere in the league, Louisville hosts Memphis, UConn goes to Temple and SMU visits USF, all on Saturday.
Here's a look at every game involving the American, future league members East Carolina, Tulane, Tulsa and Navy, plus UCF's non-conference opponents (Akron, FIU, Penn State, South Carolina).
