ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - UCF is entering some unfamiliar terrain coming off an upset win at Louisville last week.
The Knights' victory over the Cardinals was rewarded with a No. 21 ranking Sunday in the Associated Press poll and No. 25 ranking in the USA Today coaches' poll. It is their first ranking since the end of the 2010 season.
The rankings also come with new front-runner status for UCF to claim the American Athletic Conference's at-large berth to the BCS.
Knights coach George O'Leary says he plans to downplay the new status, despite a favorable schedule that sees his team play four of its final six games at home.
That BCS path continues Saturday with a visit from winless Connecticut.
