UCF can clinch the Conference USA Eastern Division title with a win over UAB on Saturday.

The Blazers could not care less.

"We're not playing to spoil them," UAB coach Garrick McGee said. "We have to focus on UCF, they are the opponent. They're well coached and have a lot of very good players, but we're going to concentrate on doing things the right way, making sure we play the game we're supposed to be playing."

UAB beat UCF last season in Birmingham. Another win over the Knights would give the Blazers three wins in four weeks to wrap up the season.

"Our record (3-8, 2-5) doesn't show it but I feel we have grown up in this process," sophomore running back Darrin Reaves said. "We had big wins (this month). We just want to keep the momentum going and have it right going into spring workouts and have it layover to next season."

UAB and UCF kickoff at noon on Saturday in Orlando, FL. The game can be seen on FOX Sports Network.
