Beat a very good team. Great win. At same time think UCF helped their brand by taking on LSU without their alpha and playmaker M.Milton. UCF helped themselves with how they battled,” Herbstreit wrote.Played great considering they had some players that didn’t play and got down early. Beat a very good team. Great win.

The Knights have now enjoyed back-to-back undefeated regular seasons.“This team is a team full of fighters, from the seniors to redshirts,” said freshman quarterback Darriel Mack Jr., who filled in for Milton. “We had a chance, and we couldn’t pull it out.“But I can guarantee that we’re going to remember this feeling. We’re going to be back stronger.”last_img
