ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - This Thursday night, UCF fans can be part of the George O’Leary Radio Show. This one-hour program leads up to the anticipation of the Conference USA Championship Game before the Knights head west to Oklahoma to face Tulsa. The show will air live at 7 p.m. at the UCF location of Buffalo Wild Wings on University Blvd., just east of Rouse Road.
Hosted by Marc Daniels, the show will air in Orlando on WYGM 740AM The Game, the flagship station of the UCF IMG Sports Network. Fans with questions can take part in two ways: by being part of the live audience or by calling in with questions to (407) 916-8255 or toll free at (800) 729-8255. For audience members and callers, Buffalo Wild Wings will be offering food and drink specials as well as prizes.
During the broadcast, the C-USA Championship Game against Tulsa will be previewed. Both teams come into the game with identical records of 9-3 overall and 7-1 in conference play. The game will kickoff at 12 p.m. and will be shown live on ESPN2. This is the fourth time UCF has appeared in the championship game, which ties the Knights with Tulsa for the most appearances. This will be the third time UCF and Tulsa face each other in the league championship game, with the other two previous meetings coming in 2005 and 2007 in Orlando.
After coming off a loss against Tulsa, the Knights rebounded with a win against UAB, 49-24, to capture the C-USA East Division title Saturday. On senior day, the Knights’ seniors shined the brightest. Quincy McDuffie set a school wide receiver rushing record with three scores and Lyle Dankenbring recorded his first career touchdown with a 78-yard interception return. To top it off, captain Kemal Ishmael recorded his first-career sack on the last defensive play of his career at Bright House Networks Stadium. The senior class tied a school record for victories in a four-year span with 33.
