The UCF Knights football team, who were moved up the national rankings last Sunday to 21st in the Coaches Poll and 22nd in the AP Poll, have started 4-0 with wins over FIU, Maryland, Memphis and Cincinnati.

UCF leads the nation in scoring offense, averaging 47.5 points per game and is one of just three teams in all of FBS to rank in the Top 15 in both scoring offense and scoring defense (Alabama, Washington).

A pair of American Athletic Conference opponents are also ranked this week in USF (15/18) and Navy (24/25). The Knights play at Navy on Oct. 21 and host USF on Nov. 24.

Tonight UCF will turn its attention to homecoming, and hosting ECU on Saturday at Spectrum Stadium. The Knights and the Pirates are scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff on CBS Sports Network.

UCF is appropriately theming tonight’s game with “space” considering they should without question launch quickly over ECU who is currently at 1-5 this season. No. 22 UCF has been extremely impressive in surging out to the first 4-0 start in its Football Bowl Subdivision era.

UCF, having been founded in 1963 as Florida Technological University, with the mission of supporting the growing United States space program at nearby Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station , is honoring that heritage in tonight’s “space” game!

Its motto, “Reach for the Stars,” represented the university’s promising aerospace education in engineering, electronics and other technological professions.

Entering Saturday night’s American Athletic Conference contest, the Knights are flying high, leading the nation in scoring at 47.5 points per game.

With ECU entering the game ranked last in scoring defense — 47.8 points allowed per game — the odds are not stacked in the Pirates’ favor.
