UCF DE Troy Davis a monster on game day

Kirk Irwin

Central Florida Knights defensive end Troy Davis plays with aggression, but can he channel that to cause the Tulsa Golden Hurricane fits in the Conference USA Championship Game?

Central Florida Knights defensive end Troy Davis plays the game with a fire that can be a little hard to control at times, but that aggression is what has led him to become the one of the most important players on the Knights defense. He has recorded 6.5 sacks, nine tackles for loss and 57 total tackles this season.

As the Knights prepare to take on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in the Conference USA Championship Game on Saturday, Tulsa head coach Bill Blankenship knows that Davis is one of the players his offense will have to key on to prevent causing havoc for them.

Knights head coach George O'Leary believes that if Davis can maintain his focus and his consistency, especially early on in the game, he can be a factor:

"Troy, to me, needs to play every play," O'Leary said. "Troy is the kind of kid that he has to have success early, as I watch him. If he's not successful early, he starts doing things he shouldn't be doing in the defensive scheme."

The Knights and the Golden Hurricane play on Saturday at Skelly Field at H.A. Champman Stadium in Tulsa, Ok. Kickoff is scheduled for noon EST and the game will be televised on ESPN.
