Knights CRUSH Charleston Southern

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:43


The UCF Knights (1-0; 0-0 C-USA) football team started the 2011 football season on the right foot Saturday against the Buccaneers of Charleston Southern (0-1; 0-0 FBS). The Knights handed the Buccaneers a crushing 62-0 defeat in-front of a crowd of 40,000 at Bright House Networks Stadium. The UCF squad dominated the matchup from the start and went into the half up 35-0. Starting quarterback Jeff Godfrey took a seat early when there was over 3 minutes left in the first half. Backup quarterback Blake Bortles would lead the Knights for the remainder of the game but not before Godfrey tied former UCF great Daunte Culpepper for the most rushing touchdowns in a game. UCF now has to shift focus to a much harder level of competition as they take on the Eagles of Boston College on Saturday. The Eagles (0-1; 0-0 ACC) are off to a rocky start and the Knights need to capitalize on that to bring home the “W” to what is sure to be a sold-out Bright House Networks Stadium on the UCF campus. As of late last week, fewer than 2,000 tickets remained for the Boston College matchup. Kickoff is set for 8pm and the game will be nationally televised on CBS College Sports Network. The UCF College of Nursing Tailgate Party for the Boston College game “kicks off” at 3pm under the scoreboard in the Golden Knights Club Softball Lot.
