Knights' Game Balls
Lawrence Young- The linebacker missed some tackles (the whole team did) but he made big plays to keep UCF in the game. He had an interception and a fumble recovery to go along with nine tackles.
Brynn Harvey- Harvey had his best running performance of the season. Statistically, it may not seem that way as he only accumulated 71 yards on the ground, but he ran with tenacity and was just explosive. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry and had a touchdown and he would have had more if the team didn't fall behind in the second half and had to rely on throwing the ball so much.
Jordan Richards- A great story gone wrong. Richards comes back to his home state in his senior season and has nine tackles and a big forced fumble in front his a lot of friends and family. Unfortunately, the afternoon was tainted by Richards going down with an injury. He was carted off the field but seems to be doing fine now.
Through the game there were some good performances. Torrell Troup was dominant at times and Kamar Aiken came up with big plays, but inconsistency ultimately doomed the Knights. We'd also like to give out game balls to Derrick Hallman and Bruce Miller but too many blown opportunities makes it hard to reward too many players. UCF left the impression that it had the more talented team and the Knights were in position to make big plays but they just couldn't finish and that will be an interesting storyline to watch going forward.
