Yet Another Disappointing Loss for Knights

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 23:06


The UCF Knights (4-5; 2-3 C-USA) suffered yet another loss Thursday night. In front of a national audience on CBS Sports Network, UCF lost to Conference USA mate Tulsa (6-3; 5-0 C-USA) at Bright House Networks Stadium. While the offense saw some success, the defense really struggled. With five starters out on injury, the Golden Hurricane took advantage of missed tackles and sloppy play. UCF led during the half; but they couldn’t perform in the red zone, which resulted in them adding just 3 points in the entire second half. And in the end, Tulsa took control of the game running out close to 5 minutes of the game clock giving the Knights no time for any offensive effort. With this loss, the Knights are now struggling to win just six games to become bowl eligible. The season has been a terrible disappointment for a team that finished 2010 ranked in the top 20 in two polls and #25 in the BCS, won their Conference Championship game, and beat a traditional powerhouse team in the Liberty Bowl. And their season isn’t getting any easier. The Knights play a very good Golden Eagles (8-1; 4-1 C-USA) team in Southern Miss this Saturday. Kickoff is at 8pm and the game is televised nationwide on CBS Sports Network. Photo courtesy Orlando Sentinel.
