UCF knights looking
UCF is coming off 2 easy wins (UConn and South Carolina St.) and had their last game cancelled (vs North Carolina) due Hurricane Florence. This is the second year in a row that UCF will have to cancel a game vs a power 5 opponent due to a hurricane as the Georgia Tech game was cancelled last year.
UCF knights on offense
New coach Josh Heupel has the Knights rolling on offense again this year as they have averaged over 300 yards rushing and 300 yards passing per game. QB McKenzie Milton looks to get back on Heisman lists after struggling a little bit in his last game with 3 picks. The ground game is always in good hands with the explosive Adrian Killings Jr and Otis Anderson handling the rock.
UCF knights on defense
Defensively the Knights will need to key on RB Devin Singletary who has 7 td’s rushing on the year and ran for over 2,000 yards last season.
