The Central Florida Knights begin Conference USA action against East Carolina on Thursday. It's the first conference game of the season for UCF, but the Panthers hold a 2-0 record in conference play going into this matchup. This will be the Knights' second Thursday game of the season, as they opened up with a 56-14 win at Akron Aug. 30.

History says UCF-ECU could be a turnover riddled game. Six of the last eight meetings between the Knights and the Pirates have produced at least four-combined turnovers, so both teams will want to pay extra attention to ball security.

ECU's wins have come against Appalachian State, Southern Mississippi and University of Texas-El Paso. UCF is coming off a 21-16 loss to the Missouri Tigers, while holding victories over Akron and Florida International.

The game can be seen live on CBS. Check out these listings for local radio coverage:
