USF (4-12) will travel to Orlando to face UCF (9-7) at Jay Bergman Field tonight at 7.
Senior left-hander Teddy Kaufman, who is 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA, will take the mound for the Bulls. The Knights scored a school-record 57 runs during a three-game series against Harford over the weekend.
UCF senior left fielder Chris Duffy leads Conference USA in batting average, runs, hits, RBI, doubles and home runs.
The Bulls are coming off an 8-5 win against Eastern Illinois on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. After a slow start on offense, the Bulls have scored at least six runs in their last six games.
USF leads the all-time series. UCF has played 16 of its first 17 games at home this season. The game will air on Bright House Sports Network.
