What to Know

An American Athletic battle is on tap between UCF and Cincinnati at 8 p.m. ET on Friday at Nippert Stadium. Expect the scorekeeper to be kept busy: if their previous games are any indication, UCF and Cincinnati will really light up the scoreboard.

The Knights were the big favorite in their most recent match, and for good reason. They put a hurting on Connecticut to the tune of 56-21. No one put up better numbers for UCF than WR Gabriel Davis, who really brought his A game. He caught five passes for 119 yards and three touchdowns. One of the most thrilling moments of the contest was Davis' 73-yard TD reception in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, after losing to Marshall the last time they met, Cincinnati decided to demonstrate that turnabout is fair play. Cincinnati was fully in charge last week, breezing past Marshall 52-14. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 28 to nothing.

Their wins bumped the Knights to 4-1 and the Bearcats to 3-1. Two numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Knights come into the game boasting the second most yards per game in the league at 568.60. Less enviably, the Bearcats are 12th worst in the nation in penalties, with 40 on the season. They might need some better self-discipline to get the job done.
