ORLANDO, Fla. ( - With one game remaining in the 2013 regular season, UCF will enter the week ranked No. 15 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 17 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

UCF has been ranked in the top 25 for seven straight weeks, and the No. 15 ranking ties for the highest in school history (also No. 15 in week 12 this year). Meanwhile, the Knights have achieved their highest ranking in the Coaches Poll, as the previous high was No. 19 in week 12 and last week.

In terms of points, UCF received 621 in the AP Top 25 and 572 in the Coaches Poll, both school records.

The Knights are 10-1 on the year and 7-0 in the American Athletic Conference as they are preparing to take on SMU in Dallas Saturday at noon ET on ESPN.

UCF has already clinched at least a share of the league title, and can win it outright if it can grab a victory in Texas. The Knights are one of 12 teams in the country with one loss or less, and have won a school-record six games by seven points or less this season.
