Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium


Central Florida has won three games in a row both SU and ATS to retain hopes of claiming at least a share of the AAC championship.

East Carolina, on the other hand, fell out of the running a few weeks ago with back-to-back defeats, and is just 1-6 ATS over its last seven games. The 8-3 Knights and 8-3 Pirates meet in the regular-season finale for both teams Thursday night in Greenville.

Central Florida just blanked South Florida 16-0, and has won its last three games by a combined score of 100-14. At 6-1 in conference play the Knights trail first-place Memphis by a half-game. East Carolina, meanwhile, just beat Tulsa 49-32, and while it can't win the conference title, it can, with a win in this game and a bowl victory, reach double-digits in victories for the second consecutive season.
