Memphis Tigers, UCF Knights Play Their AAC Opener

UofM looking for second straight win.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis coach Justin Fuente is about to get a firsthand look at the team he wants the Tigers to emulate.

The UCF Knights are off to a 3-1 start under coach George O'Leary with a victory over Penn State this season. They are coming off a disappointing 28-25 loss last week to No. 13 South Carolina.

Fuente says the Knights are well-coached, disciplined and fundamentally sound and tough. That's what he wants for his Tigers as he works to build this program in his second season.

His Tigers (1-2) host UCF on Saturday in the first American Athletic Conference game this season for these former Conference USA teams.

The Tigers are coming off a bye that followed a 31-7 victory over Arkansas State in their best performance this season.
