ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - As the only remaining unbeaten team in conference play, the No. 15/17 UCF women's soccer team is in the driver's seat to clinch the regular season title this week when the team travels to Texas.

The Knights (13-2-2, 6-0-1) first face Houston (1-9-3, 0-7-0) at 8 p.m. ET Thursday before continuing on to SMU (8-7-0, 3-4-0) for the regular season finale Sunday at 2 p.m. ET.

UCF has already secured a bid to host the American Athletic Conference Championships' first round (Nov. 1) and quarterfinals (Nov. 3) but still needs to see how the weekend plays out for seeding information.

The weekend will mark a homecoming of sorts for senior captain and reigning American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, Marissa Diggs, who is a native of Rowlett, Texas.

The Knights have never lost Houston in the eight-year history of their series (7-0-1). UCF holds an 8-5-0 record over SMU, which includes a 2-0 victory in their most recent meeting at last year's Conference USA Tournament semifinals.

Fans can follow the action via Gametracker for free or live streaming for a fee. @UCF_WSoccer will also provide updates throughout the road trip.
