UCF Knights Dodge a Bullet, Beat Houston

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 23:30

6_3134126The UCF Knights (2-2; 1-0 AAC) dodged a MAJOR bullet Thursday night in their 17-12 defeat of the Houston Cougars (2-3; 0-1 AAC) in-front of a nationwide audience on ESPN. The Knights delivered an outstanding defensive performance, holding Houston to 331 yards (still more than the Knights’ 228) and not allowing a single Houston touchdown. The Cougar’s overall time of possession was also higher than UCF’s (32:17 vs. 27:43). With a late 4th quarter drive and time expiring, Houston looked as if they were going to win the game. But a game saving fumble by UCF’s Brandon Alexander gave UCF back possession of the ball. The Knights took a knee to let the game clock expire with less than 35 seconds remaining. The Knights play their final out-of-conference game this Thursday against the BYU Cougars (4-1; IND). Kickoff is set for 7:30pm and the game will be nationally-televised on ESPN. The College of Nursing tailgate party will begin at 3:30pm in the Softball Lot, below the scoreboard. Below, watch highlights of the Knights’ victory against the Houston Cougars, courtesy of ESPN:
