(State College) -- Penn State welcomes the University of Central Florida Knights to Beaver Stadium for a six o'clock kickoff this evening.

Both teams are boasting a two and oh record, and Coach Bill O'Brien is praising his team's toughness early in the season.

"When you have a physical, resilient, tough football team, then you have a chance to win games," O'Brien explained at his weekly news conference.

A victory over UCF would extend Penn State's winning streak to five games, dating back to last season.

The two head coaches in tonight's matchup know each other well. O'Brien was a member of George O'Leary's staff at Georgia Tech from 1995 through 2001.

Penn State and Central Florida will kick off in Dublin, Ireland next year as part of the Croke Park Classic. It will be the first international game for both teams.
