The Central Florida Knights (4-2 overall) hope to stay undefeated in Conference USA play Saturday against the Memphis Tigers (1-5). The Knights enter the game with a 2-0 record in conference play and is leading Conference USA's East Division.

Last week, the Knights outlasted the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, 38-31 in two overtime periods thanks to a game-clinching interception by Kemal Ishmael. Quarterback Brad Bortles completed 27-of-40 passes for 272 yards and recorded a pair of rushing touchdowns. Running back Storm Johnson ran for 94 yards and a touchdown while fellow running back Latavius Murray ran for both of the Knights' overtime touchdowns.

The Tigers on the other hand enter the game 1-1 in the conference and are coming off a 41-7 loss to the East Carolina Pirates last Saturday. The lone touchdown the Tigers scored was a three-yard touchdown run by running back Jai Steib.
