College Football Games on TV Tonight
UCF at Cincinnati, 8 p.m. on ESPN
The Knights' regular-season winning streak came to an end two weeks ago at Pitt but UCF hasn't lost an American Athletic Conference (AAC) game since Nov. 26, 2016 (19 in a row). The Bearcats have bounced back from their 42-0 blowout at Ohio State with a pair of impressive wins. UCF has won the last three meetings by an average of 25 points per game.
New Mexico at San Jose State, 10 p.m. on CBSSN
The Spartans couldn't build off of their big win at Arkansas but still have a chance to match their win total over the past two seasons combined with a victory over the Lobos. This game could come down to how San Jose State's defense fares against New Mexico's running game and if the Lobos can contain the Spartans through the air.
