The UCF Knights (8-3; 6-1 C-USA) fell 23-21 to the Golden Hurricane of Tulsa (9-2; 7-0 C-USA) Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The loss cost the Knights big-time. With its win against UCF, Tulsa now all but guarantees their home stadium will serve as the site for the 2012 Conference USA Championship Game on December 1st. As long as UCF beats UAB on Saturday, they will travel back to Tulsa to take on the Golden Hurricane in the Championship game, giving them the opportunity for revenge. The Knights struggled offensively to counter the endless onslaught of blitzes the Golden Hurricane threw their way. The Knights anemic offense scored only once in the second half; and they had only one drive of more than 40 yards and had five three-and-out scenarios. The lack of ability to score in the game ultimately proved fatal. The Knights now take on the Blazers of UAB (3-8; 2-5 C-USA) Saturday. Kickoff is set for Noon at Bright House Networks Stadium on the UCF campus.Check our Conference USA’s Point After¬†below for highlights of the UCF vs. Tulsa game:
