UCF Knights Defeat Tulane, Remain Undefeated in Conference Play

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:00

The UCF Knights (4-2; 2-0 AAC) extended their conference winning streak to 11 on Saturday in their 20-13 defeat of the Tulane Green Wave (2-5; 1-2 AAC) at Bright House Networks Stadium. The Knights continued to display some offensive struggles. Starting quarterback Justin Holman was benched in the third quarter for several minutes while backup Nick Patti took over at the helm. UCF’s turnovers were costly, with all but 7 of Tulane’s points coming from turnovers. But UCF’s defensive squad remained strong well into the end of the second half, stopping Tulane on a final 4th down to give the Knights back the ball and a win. UCF head coach George O’Leary was far from impressed with how the offensive unit performed during the game: “Their lives are going to change Monday because I’m not going to put up with that lackadaisical garbage I saw today from the offense,” O’Leary said with a stern expression. “. . . I’ve been around football too long to know that you can’t keep winning playing like that. You really can’t.” UCF plays at home again this Saturday for their 2014 Homecoming festivities. The Knights will play the Owls of Temple (4-2; 2-1 AAC) at 5:00pm at Bright House Networks Stadium with the game being nationally televised on CBS Sports Network. The UCF College of Nursing Tailgate Party will begin at 1:30pm in the Softball Lot underneath the scoreboard. Below, watch ESPN’s recap of the Knights’ victory Saturday over Tulane:
