UCF Knights Fall to #20 Missouri

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 00:21


The UCF Knights (0-2; 0-0 AAC) dropped their second game of the season Saturday to the #20-ranked Missouri Tigers (3-0; 0-0 SEC) 38-10 in Columbia. The Knights offense and defensive fronts performed well in the first half. But a tipped ball that fell into the hands of the Tigers in the middle of the third quarter doomed the Knights. The Missouri defense put aggressive pressure on UCF’s new quarterback Justin Holman, who started for the first-time ever on Saturday. The pressure proved way too much for UCF; multiple turnovers would seal the fate for the Knights well into the fourth quarter. And no matter what, UCF wasn’t able to rebound from the mistakes. UCF moves on to their Orlando campus Saturday for a matchup against the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman College (2-0). The game against BCC will begin at 6pm and will be televised nationwide on ESPN3. The UCF College of Nursing Tailgate Party for the game will begin at 2pm and will be held under the scoreboard in the Softball Lot. Below, check-out video highlights of UCF’s loss to Missouri courtesy of ESPN:
