Knights Moving on from BYU Loss, Focus on C-USA Play

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:03


The UCF Knights (2-2; 0-0 C-USA) suffered another game of mishaps last Friday night in their 24-17 loss at BYU (2-2; IND) with two turnovers sealing their fate in Provo, Utah. With the loss, UCF is ready to fix their mistakes and are doing so this week in a bye week. The Knights need to focus on improving their punt return average and also need to work on special teams, who have had 2 costly miffed punts that have resulted in touchdowns over their last two contests. Starting quarterback Jeff Godfrey has also struggled somewhat, holding on to the ball a little too long resulting in sacks. Fumbles have also been an issue for the offense. The Knights are moving into Conference USA play for the remainder of the season, starting with their Homecoming game next Saturday against the Thundering Herd of Marshall (1-3; 1-0 C-USA) at 7pm at Bright House Networks Stadium. The Knights have a lot of potential remaining in their season. Last year at this same point, UCF was 2-2 and eventually went on to be an undefeated ranked-team that defeated Georgia in the Liberty Bowl. The UCF College of Nursing has an entire day-long event planned for Homecoming, including a breakfast beginning at 8:30am in the University Towers, attendance at the Homecoming parade, and the College’s Tailgate Party, which begins at 3pm in the Softball Lot.
