Joey Knight's takeaways from UCF-Memphis

Joey Knight's takeaways from UCF-Memphis

During Central Florida's thrilling conference title win over Memphis on Saturday, news broke that Knights coach Scott Frost was going to accept the coaching job at Nebraska, his alma mater. But thanks to a great performance from sophomore quarterback McKenzie Milton the Knights were able to come away with a 62-55 double-overtime win. With the victory the Knights will be the highest ranked Group of 5 team in the nation.

"They really shocked me this season". The game is scheduled for a 12:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ABC. Now they get a chance to rest up before beginning bowl preparations.

Ferguson was 30 of 42 for 471 yards with four touchdowns and an interception. "We've been through lighting delay's and hurricanes and missed games and 12 straight weeks of games and you know these guys have answered the call and risen to the challenge every time that they have the opportunity to".

Milton threw for 494 yards (28 of 40), five touchdowns and three interceptions as he was named the game's most outstanding player.

UCF: The Knights' final 10 wins came without the benefit of a bye week, which is why they might have struggled on defense the past two weeks.

That's a total of 562 yards of total offense for Milton and six touchdowns in the game when you do the math. Central Florida went up by 14 points in the fourth quarter, but Memphis rallied again and tied the game at 48 when Riley Ferguson hit Anthony Miller with a touchdown pass. He was all over the field for the Knights as he had two sacks and a forced fumbled that the Knights recovered on the opening drive. He says he loves UCF and Orlando. The under is also 4-1-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams.

The victor of the game between 10-1 Memphis and 11-0 UCF could play in a New Year's Day bowl game.
