Week 14 Preview
The stakes are bigger than a rivalry when UCF resumes the "War on I-4" with South Florida on Friday night. The game will be nationally-televised by ESPN at 8 p.m.
Sure, the No. 17 Knights (9-1, 6-0) would love to end the four-game series losing streak to the Bulls (2-8, 2-4), but more importantly they can take another big step towards their goal of the American Athletic Conference championship and BCS bid.
A win would clinch at least a share of the league title, then all eyes would shift to next Thursday's Louisville at Cincinnati game - aka the "Keg of Nails." The Bearcats (9-2, 6-1) are still in the hunt for the title and BCS bid, but need to win that one and for UCF to drop a game.
The Knights, if they beat USF, could clinch the BCS berth with a Louisville win over Cincinnati.
But all that could fall by the wayside if UCF slips up to USF.
Elsewhere in the league, SMU travels to Houston Friday at 12 noon in search of their sixth-win needed for bowl eligibility. The Mustangs host UCF on Dec. 7. Saturday's slate includes Rutgers at UConn and Temple at Memphis.
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).
