UCF clubbed Cinci last night in a game that was over by half time, but literally they called the game at the end of 3rd. Mostly due to weather but the 28 point lead helped! UCF offense, defense, and special teams are playing lights out.

Last week we cracked the top 25 and I expect to move up when the polls come out later today.

Yes, I'm bragging. As a long time UCF fan it feels good to be winning again and just obliterating the competition. Hope it continues and I'm feeling real confident we win out the rest the games. (did I just curse myself? LOL)

Schedule and results:

UCF 61 FIU 17
UCF 38 Maryland 10
UCF 40 Memphis 13
UCF 53 Cincinnati 23

Oct 14th ECU
Oct 21 @ NAVY
Oct 28 Austin-Peay
Nov 4 @ SMU
Nov 11 UCONN
Nov 18 @ Temple
Nov 24 USF

Two toughest games coming up is undefeated Navy and Black Friday undefeated USF.

Go Knights!

They're (UCF) scoring a ton of points which always helps.

UF and FSU are out and UCf and USF are in. The times they have a changed.

UF and FSU deserve to be outta the top 25 ... for now

UCF is most deserving of it's ranking ..... USF, not so much so IMO.

I am still not confident that UM can beat anyone ranked above them .... and certainly not the top 5

LB

Miami does not play anyone ranked above them. ( currently on the schedule)

VT and ND are ranked, both are home games for the U.

I would be a lot more confident if 3 of our best players were not hurt or out.
( Walton, Richards, Donaldson )

Defense is improving every game. Kicking game is solid. Feagles showed his pedigree.

Rosier has become legend thanks to " THE DRIVE." ( Braxton also...)

A very strong wind is blowing and it is a Miami Hurricane.


Continued props to UCF. Congrats.

Just stating my opinion just how good they are currently and match up against the top 10.


VT and ND are ranked, both are home games for the U.
and both of those games worry me .... they have had major issues with both recently. I also see them having trouble with GT's option running game



I would be a lot more confident if 3 of our best players were not hurt or out.

Agree, the loss of Walton for the remainder of the year dif hurts. Redwine is dinged as well.


Defense is improving every game. Kicking game is solid. Feagles showed his pedigree.
Agree, but the LB's still need to improve and DB's still very much worry me.



Rosier has become legend thanks to " THE DRIVE." ( Braxton also...)
Not ready to give him that title ..... he looked VERY shaky until the last drive.


A very strong wind is blowing and it is a Miami Hurricane.

I rate them a strong cat 2 right now. Were as teams 3-5 are cat 4's ..... Bama & Clemson are 5+'s





Continued props to UCF. Congrats.

Miami does look good. going into Tally and winning on that final drive was amazing and surely a boost of confidence for the rest of the year.

USF is 5-0 but haven't beaten anyone with a pulse and had some close games. They are bound to slip up...mainly Black Friday!

After this weekend's games, coach poll:

UCF moves to 5-0 and moved up one spot to #20 UCF is looking really-really good this year. Offense, defense, and special teams. Next up is @Navy

USF at #13. Again, UCF-USF Black Friday game is gonna be one for the ages if both teams stay undefeated into that game.


Miami #7

Yes, The I-4 War is setting up nicely. I keep saying at some point the great state of football should just be one conference:

Miami, FSU, UF, UCF, USF, FAU, FIU.

ACC expansion: UCF, USF...( dream on)

Meanwhile, my blood pressure has recovered and I will be at Hard Rock this weekend.

Football weekend for you! That Syracuse upset over Clemson was huge. Good set up for Miami to take that and click up a few spots in the rankings! Are they for real?

I don't know at what point we say: We are back.

Injuries tell the tale. Who knows what the depth is like, but we are finding out.

In the last several years ( With Golden as the coach ) when Hurricanes held up 4 fingers to start the 4th quarter it meant nothing. Now its back to what it used to mean: we win the 4th quarter.

I think an ACC championship would signal that Miami is back......

UCF 31 @NAVY 21....

UCF moves to 6-0 in a very hard fought battle. First time all year UCF was challenged and game went into the 4th.

another solid win for your Knights

The U failed to take advantage of multiple Quez turnovers in the first half and escaped with another close one ..... HOWEVER, they will need to play MUCH MUCH better to beat either VT or Dame!! They are ranked were they are based on zero losses but are not a top 10 team .... IMO.

I didn't see the miami game but Syracuse did beat #2 Clemson last week. So they have a pulse. that is a good win. But, yes, got some games to play still.
