ORLANDO (CBSMiami) – The University of Central Florida has a chance to cement a bid to the Liberty Bowl if it can capture the Conference USA championship on Saturday.
Currently, only one of Conference USA’s five bowl-eligible teams know its bowl destination. SMU has already accepted a bid to play in the Hawaii Bowl.
The rest depends on the matchup between Tulsa and UCF during Saturday’s championship game. If Tulsa wins, the Golden Hurricane head to the Liberty Bowl and UCF goes to the Beef O’ Brady’s Bowl. A Tulsa win also sends Rice to the Armed Forces Bowl and East Carolina to the New Orleans Bowl.
On the flip side, if UCF wins the conference title, it will go to the Liberty Bowl. A UCF win would send Tulsa to the Armed Forces Bowl, Rice to the New Orleans Bowl, and East Carolina to the Beef O’ Brady’s Bowl.
