College football preview: UCF, FAMU, Bethune-Cookman

UCF at Tulsa, noon, FSN, 1350-AM

Both are 6-0 in league play. It's the latest in the season that the division leaders in Conference USA have faced each other and the latest that division leaders have met without a conference loss. The Knights (8-2) can clinch the East Division with a victory and host the league's championship game on Dec. 1. Tulsa (8-2) can clinch the West Division with a victory and the chance to host the championship game if East Carolina loses at Tulane. UCF enters the game leading the conference in passing defense (191.6) and passing efficiency defense (110.7). The Knights are the top-ranked total defense in the league for the fifth consecutive season.

Florida A&M vs. Bethune-Cookman at Orlando, 2, ESPN Classic

The Wildcats (8-2, 7-0 MEAC) have clinched the league title but insist they won't overlook the Rattlers (4-6, 4-3). B-CU hopes to clinch a first-round bye in the Division I-AA playoffs and go 8-0 in conference play for the first time. The Rattlers beat North Carolina Central 22-21 last week under interim coach Earl Holmes after the retirement of Joe Taylor.
