Interesting Stats

- UCF quarterback and star player, McKenzie Milton suffered a gruesome knee injury that temporarily halted blood flow to his right leg and has left the junior talent with serious nerve damage. Of course, Milton's season is over and the Knights will be without their best player this Saturday.

- The last time these two teams met back in Week 7, we saw the highest betting total of the entire season with a record-setting 81-point over/under. UCF defeated Memphis 31-30.

Saturday's fourth American Conference Championship Game is a rematch of the 2017 title bout between the Tigers and Knights last season, in which UCF defeated Memphis 62-55.

- UCF holds a dominant series lead over Memphis with 12 consecutive wins over the Tigers dating back to 2005.

Prop Bets

- Away Team (Memphis) Total: Over 30.5 Points (-115) – Memphis has scored 30 or more points in 10 of its 12 games this season, including an exact 30-point mark in that 31-30 Week 7 meeting with UCF. So, the question you have to ask yourself is whether or not the Tigers can improve their scoring total by a single point against a Milton-less UCF team for the conference title?

- Home Team (UCF) Total: Under 33.5 Points (-115) – Without star QB McKenzie Milton, it's hard to trust that the Knights No. 8 scoring offense (41.1 PPG) will be able to pick up right where it left off with redshirt freshman QB Darriel Mack Jr. replacing him.
