ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - UCF has long been promoting itself as a football program on the verge of realizing vast potential.

No. 12 South Carolina's visit to UCF on Saturday won't be the first time that the Knights have had a chance to notch a signature victory during coach George O'Leary's tenure.

But at 3-0 and fresh off one the biggest wins in school history at Penn State, suddenly the program that's previously only nibbled at grabbing national attention could finally do it.

The Knights will be fighting its own history in these games, though.

UCF is just 1-24 all-time against ranked teams and 2-14 against Southeastern Conference foes.

But Knights players say they won't be playing with any fear as they look to move to 4-0 for the first time since 1988.

The Gamecocks kick off against Central Florida at noon Saturday at Bright House Networks Stadium in Orlando.  The game will be broadcast on ABC.
