ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Central Florida coach George O'Leary wasn't shy this preseason when he said it was league championship game or bust for a Knights' team in its final year in Conference USA.
The Knights have overcome a rocky non-conference schedule and an early season injury to their top running back during their first 10 games.
Now all they need is one more victory Saturday at Tulsa to lock up home-field advantage and shot at their third league title since joining in 2005.
It won't be easy against a Golden Hurricane squad that has C-USA's top-ranked rushing offense and rushing defense. But O'Leary says his confidence level is higher for this year's senior class than it's been for any of his previous teams.
