UCF can clinch the east division of Conference USA before taking the field Saturday. If Marshall wins at East Carolina, UCF wins the division. The Thundering Herd has much to play for as a win would make Marshall bowl eligible. If East Carolina wins, UCF can still advance to its fourth conference title game with a win over UAB.
A.J. Bouye might want his dad to keep coming to road games. After witnessing his son return a fumble for a touchdown at Marshall, his son returned an interception 76-yards at Tulsa.
UCF is 6-1 in its last seven regular season finales. Saturday's game also marks the fourth time UCF will play UAB in final game of the regular season since both joined Conference USA.
A total of 20 seniors will be honored before Saturday's kickoff. The group has a chance to be the most successful class in UCF history. The Knights are 32-18 the last four seasons. The 32 wins ties the mark for most wins over a four-year period.
UAB Garrick McGee is in his first season as head coach of the Blazers. He was an assistant at Arkansas prior to taking the job.
This week's interesting fact about UCF's opponent is golfer Graeme McDowell, winner of the 2010 US Open, played on the UAB golf team from 1998-2002.
