ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - UCF's list of historical moments from the 2013 season got a bit longer Thursday evening when the Knights clinched the American Athletic Conference's berth in the BCS.
With Louisville's victory at Cincinnati (6-2) Thursday, the Cardinals (7-1) are now the only team in the league that could tie the Knights (7-0) in the standings, however UCF owns the tiebreaker thanks to a 38-35 win in Kentucky Oct. 18. A UCF win at SMU Saturday will seal the outright title for the Knights.
