With an open date last week following a win at Houston, UCF is looking forward to getting back home to play before friends and family in Orlando when Temple visits Saturday night.
"Excited about getting back in front of our home crowd here Saturday, too," Knights coach Josh Heupel said.
Early losses to Tulsa and at Memphis have pretty much knocked the Knights (4-2, 3-2 American Athletic Conference) out of the league race, especially with No. 7 Cincinnati rolling along unbeaten. Tulsa also is unbeaten in league play, and SMU and Memphis are ahead of the Knights.
