UCF Knights Celebrate Homecoming Victory, Look to Tough Tulsa Game on Thursday

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 00:48


The UCF Knights (4-4; 2-2 C-USA) are celebrating a smashing victory over C-USA rival Memphis (2-7; 1-4 C-USA) on their Homecoming from this past Saturday. UCF proved that it has what it takes to be a dominate force on the football field after shocking upsets at SMU and UAB. The defense held Memphis to just six first downs and only 134 total yards of offense. The offense was also very successful, racking up a massive 505 total yards! Quarterback Jeff Godfrey also shows why he is the Knights’ #1 guy. He completed 14/17 passes, passed for 200 yards, and earned one of the Knights’ touchdowns. But the victory for UCF has to be quickly savored. The Knights are back on national television this Thursday when they take on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane (5-3; 4-0 C-USA). Tulsa just delivered the Mustangs of SMU (the same SMU team that solidly defeated UCF and who knocked TCU out of the Top 25 just a few weeks ago) a slaughter! The Golden Hurricane are no doubt the most rounded (and perhaps most talented) football team UCF has faced this season. UCF is also expected to get a formal invitation to join the Big East in all-sports as early as Tuesday of this week. Hopefully that invitation will come and bring renewed energy to the team who can bring home another win. 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 UCF vs. Tulsa game will begin at 4pm in the Softball Lot. Photo Courtesy Orlando Sentinel.
