With the UCF Knights not set to start their Conference USA schedule for another two weeks, conference play has already begun for some members with the East Carolina Pirates and Marshall Thundering Herd out to 1-0 conference records.

The Pirates and Thundering Herd lead the East division of C-USA, with UCF and the UAB Blazers having yet to play a conference game. In the West division, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane is the only team with a victory, as both the Rice Owls and Tulane Green Wave have dropped their first conference game of the season.

Among the 12 teams in the conference, only UCF and Tulsa have winning records overall.

UCF will open their C-USA schedule on Oct. 4 with a showdown against East Carolina at Orlando's BH Networks Stadium.
