The defensive tackle has emerged as UCF’s most dominating player on both sides of the ball. Troup had fantastic numbers against the Golden Eagles, finishing with seven tackles, 2.5 TFL.

The undersized linebacker continuous to make plays all over the field. The sophomore led the Knights with nine tackles, eight being solos.
The senior end was another UCF defensive lineman who made a big impact. Wallace also had seven tackles and also had 1.5 TFL, including a potential touchdown saving tackle that he sniffed out in the backfield.
