The University of Memphis will play UCF once again this season and for the second year in a row at the American Athletic Conference Championship game in Orlando.

Memphis defeated Houston 52-31 at home for the AAC West Division title. 

The No. 9 Knights dominated Cincinnati at Spectrum Stadium 38-13 to claim the East Division title and secure a spot at the championship game.

In the 2017 matchup, UCF went on to become conference champions in double-overtime 62-55 after Tre Neal intercepted a pass from Riley Furguson to seal the game.
