LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After one stunning upset, UCF has perhaps replaced No. 8 Louisville as the team to beat in the American Athletic Conference and is aiming squarely for the BCS bid that comes with the league crown.The Knights quickly changed the landscape in the upstart conference by rallying to upset the Cardinals 38-35 on Friday night. UCF quashed Louisville's hopes of running the table toward another BCS appearance and possibly earning an outside shot at the national championship.UCF is tied with USF and Houston at 2-0 in the conference, and all of their title prospects got a big boost — but especially for the Knights because they'd own the tiebreaker over Louisville.Quarterback Blake Bortles called "giant" for the program and the school. The Knights want to continue the momentum and claim the rewards that Louisville was expected to reap."Obviously, it's a big win, there's no question about that," said UCF coach George O'Leary, adding that it was the biggest in his 10-year tenure in Orlando.Then came the wild celebration on the field and among a small section of Knights fans who chanted "UCF, UCF" after the improbable victory."I think it speaks volumes about this program," the quarterback said in a jubilant locker room. "We are a gritty team, a resilient team. We came right back. I think that speaks a lot about our character."Now comes the challenge of maintaining that character. UCF is 4-0 on the road this season, its best start. The Knights are home for four of their final six including Nov. 29 with the resumption of their rivalry against USF — which the Bulls lead 4-0, the last meeting coming in 2008.With the exception of that game and the one at home Nov. 9 against Houston, the Knights' other four American opponents are 1-6 in conference play.The Knights now want to seize the huge opportunity they now have."This gives us great confidence," UCF receiver Jeff Godfrey said. "This will give us momentum."
