The start of this college football season for the Knights was a rough one because of Hurricane Irma they canceled their game against Georgia Tech to house military personnel to help with the relief efforts of Irma and ever since there’s been a change in the air. UCF is 5-0 ranked 20th in the nation with the top scoring offense in the FBS which you would not expect. You would expect to hear the likes of Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State or any other top college team to be the No.1 ranked offense in the country. Not a college that’s getting its feet back in the top 25 rankings.

Orlando is predominately an NBA and MLS city but UCF intends to change that. They want Orlando to be a centerpiece for college football and It is not hard to see why either.

Yes, the Knights coach suited up and played QB for the scout team at practice and you do not see many head coaches getting that involved with their teams.

These three have been standing out this year with Milton dazzling the passing game, Smith showing DB’s that they can’t cover him and Killins proving to be an X-factor in the faze of
