UCF Knights Fall to NC State in Bitcoin Bowl

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:29


The UCF Knights (9-4; 7-1 AAC Co-Champs) fell to the Wolfpack of NC State 34-27 on Friday night in the St. Petersburg Bitcoin Bowl, ending their season on a somewhat sour note. NC State’s talented quarterback Jacoby Brissett seemed to be able to scramble out of the Knights’ defensive pressure whenever he needed to. And the UCF offense struggled throughout the contest, with quarterback Justin Holman completing 291 passing yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. But what really hurt UCF the most was a flat defensive play in the 3rd quarter. A late rally in the 4th quarter which saw UCF score 17 points wasn’t enough to put UCF past NC State. The game was televised nationally on ESPN. Below, watch highlights of the loss courtesy of ESPN:
