The UCF Knights (6-3; 4-1 AAC) took care of the Golden Hurricane of Tulsa (2-8; 2-4 AAC) handily Friday night 31-7 on a matchup that was broadcasted nationwide on ESPN2. The Knights started off slow, scoring just 3 points in the entire first quarter (after taking Tulsa to the red zone 3 times). But UCF turned on the heat for the rest of the game, holding Tulsa to just 7 total points. Quarterback Justin Holman was 6-of-27 passing for 291 yards, zero interceptions and three touchdown passes to J.J. Worton, Breshad Perriman and Josh Reese. Reese hauled in a 77-yard touchdown reception, the ninth longest in school history. Bright House Networks Stadium wasn’t quite as packed as usual with only 36,000 fans on hand to watch the game; the loss to UCONN two weeks ago took its toll on attendance. But the Knights should have a nice packed stadium when they play their final home game next Saturday against SMU. The Friday after that, the Knights travel to Raymond James Stadium to take on their rival USF, who has been struggling this season. The Knights now sit on-top of the American Athletic Conference along with Memphis (6-3; 4-1 AAC) and Cincinnati (6-3; 4-1 AAC). ¬†Photo and excerpts courtesy¬†Orlando Sentinel.
