UCF coach George O'Leary and the team captains appeared at Tuesday's weekly press conference to look back at the last game and to preview Saturday's road game at Tulsa.
This is a clash of Conference USA unbeatens with both UCF and Tulsa holding 6-0 records in the league and both are 8-2 overall. The Knights are coming off a 31-24 win at UTEP and the Golden Hurricane went on the road and beat Houston, 41-7.
The implications for this game are big as the winner will lock up their division and C-USA Championship hosting rights.
The Golden Hurricane own a 3-2 series lead and have won the last two, including a 2011 game in Orlando and 2008 in Tulsa. UCF beat Tulsa twice in 2007 (regular season and C-USA Championship, both in Orlando) and Tulsa defeated UCF in the inaugural 2005 C-USA title game at the Citrus Bowl.
