Week Nine Preview
After going on the road and knocking off top ten Louisville, UCF controls their own destiny to win the inaugural American Athletic Conference championship and the BCS bid that comes with it.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, UConn comes to Orlando as the league's only winless team at 0-6.
Coach George O'Leary has stressed to his team this week to be "H and H," which is his lingo for "humble and hungry," and players say there's no way they look past the Huskies especially after seeing how close they came to losing at Memphis earlier this month.
Elsewhere in the American, Houston's visit to Rutgers could have big implications at the top of the standings. The Cougars are undefeated at 2-0 and the Scarlet Knights can't afford another loss if they hope to be in the championship hunt by the time the UCF game rolls around on Nov. 21.
Louisville coach Charlie Strong looks to rally his troops as they pay a visit to the Sunshine State to play a team in front of them in the standings, USF, who somehow are 2-0 in the league despite not scoring an offensive touchdown in either win.
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).
