ORLANDO, Fla. ( - When the 2013-14 athletic year began, it marked a new and exciting chapter in the rivalry between UCF and USF as first-time conference foes.

Through the fall, UCF's football, volleyball and men's and women's soccer programs all bested their instate rival. This Saturday, the UCF women's basketball team (8-8, 1-3 The American) will look to keep the streak going when it hosts the Bulls (8-8, 3-2) at 7 p.m. on the American Digital Network.

The teams will meet for the first time since USF's 67-58 win in Tampa on Nov. 21, 2000. USF will carry a 13-game win streak over the Knights into the game in its first trip to Orlando since November 1999.

UCF head coach Joi Williams was a four-year starting point guard at USF from 1984-88. She still ranks among USF's career assist leaders (180; No. 17).

USF is 2-0 on the road during conference play so far this year. Of the Bulls' eight losses, six have been by single digits, including the opening day loss to No. 6/8 Maryland and an 8-point loss to No. 5/5 Louisville.

Alisia Jenkins is averaging a double-double (10.4 ppg , 10.9 rpg) this season, and has a team-high eight double-doubles. She also leads the conference in rebounding.

USF head coach Jose Fernandez has led his team to the postseason nine times in the last 10 years.
