ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - This Saturday's pre-game show will begin at 11:40 a.m., 20 minutes prior to the scheduled noon kickoff between the UCF Knights and Conference USA East Division rival Southern Miss Golden Eagles from Bright House Networks Stadium.

It's arguably the biggest game of the year for the Knights (7-2, 5-0 C-USA), and the last chance to catch UCF's 19 seniors in their regular season home finale vs. Southern Miss (6-3, 3-2 C-USA). UCF Athletics is encouraging all fans to get to the stadium early in support of this year's senior class and in their seats prior to kickoff.

This year's Senior Day ceremony will honor the following Knights (in alphabetical order):

? Kamar Aiken (Miami, Fla.)

? With this year's bowl eligibility, will have went to three in a four-year span, the lone senior class to do so.
? Earned UCF's first national ranking, coming into this week No. 23 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and No. 25 in the Associated Press and Harris Interactive polls.
? Have currently tied the best start in program history at 7-2 and could surpass the record by winning its remaining regular season games (9-2, 1998).
? Have led UCF to 11 straight Conference USA victories, dating back to last season, the third longest streak in league history.
? Led by 2009 Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year Bruce Miller, this year's defense has escalated the trend since 2007 of being one of the nation's top 50 defensive units (49, 2007; 43, 2008; 48, 2009; 18, 2010).
? For many seniors, the first group to have played all of their home games at Bright House Networks Stadium.
? Additionally, all 19 seniors are on pace to earn a bachelor's degree, a feat that eight of them have all ready accomplished.
