Knights Fall to Miami, Next Up Rice

The Knights continued to fail to produce on Offense, resulting in only one scoring drive. The Hurricanes move on to 5-1 (4-2 ACC) and continue their drive to be a national contender this season. The game was nationally-broadcast on CBS. While UCF may not have won the game, they certainly won at tailgating! The University estimates close to 70,000 people came to the campus to partake in tailgating parties and festivities. The game was sold-out a few weeks ago; but thousands of fans showed-up anyway to have fun and hopefully find a ticket to buy for the game. The Knights now move back into C-USA play with a game this Saturday against the Rice Owls (0-7; 0-3 C-USA) and then will have another nationally-televised game next Sunday on ESPN versus Marshall. The Knights should have no trouble securing the “W” against Rice, which is one of the worst teams in I-A football. The Knights face only one more out-of-conference foe at Texas on 11/7. UCF is only 3 wins away from being a bowl-eligible team. GO KNIGHTS!!! BEAT RICE!!!
