UCF Knights Crush B-CU Wildcats

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 00:27

20140920ajwmb2617The UCF Knights (1-2; 0-0 AAC) got their first taste of victory this weekend with a 41-7 mauling of the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman University (2-1; 0-0 MEAC). The Knights sputtered during the first quarter to put points on the board and struggled defensively to stop the Wildcats, who scored their first and only game touchdown as the quarter came to an end. But as the second quarter began, UCF started clicking. The Wildcats would go on to remain scoreless the rest of the game and Knights’ running back Will Stanbeck got his first 100-yard plus game Saturday. The crowd was raucous. Bright House Networks Stadium was near capacity, with over 41,000 fans in-attendance, the sixth largest in UCF history. With the family weekend underway, the audience embraced the Marching Wildcats incredible halftime performance, which was proceeded by the first performance of the Marching Knights of the 2014 football season. The Marching Knights are fielding the largest band in UCF history, with over 400 members taking the field. UCF will now have a bye-week as they prepare to enter American Athletic Conference play next Thursday against the Houston Cougars (2-2; 0-0 AAC). Kickoff for UCF at Houston is set for 7:00pm and the game will be nationally televised on ESPN. Below, take a look at video highlights of a controversial personal foul call against Rannell Hall, who was ejected the rest of the game and (could sit out for half of the Houston game should the call not be overturned) courtesy of ESPN:
