HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Central Florida coach George O'Leary is
well aware of Marshall's struggles under first-year coach Doc
O'Leary is also telling his players to expect a fight out of the
Thundering Herd (1-4, 0-1 Conference USA) when Central Florida
(3-2, 1-0) is showcased on national television for the second
straight week on a Wednesday night.
Marshall beat UCF from 2002 to 2004 when the teams were members
of the Mid-American Conference. But UCF has won all five meetings
since the schools switched to Conference USA in 2005.
Central Florida's defense has given up four touchdowns each by
rushing and passing and allows 265 yards of offense per game. All
are conference bests. The Knights figure to tantalize a Marshall
running game that ranks near the bottom nationally.
