ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – It is one week into the NFL season and UCF is well represented at the highest level of professional football. Overall, 12 players who completed their college careers in a Black and Gold uniform earned spots on NFL rosters, including A.J. Bouye who made the Houston Texans final 53 as an undrafted rookie free agent.

Brandon Marshall (Chicago) had a big opening day in a 24-21 victory over the Bengals. Marshall had eight catches for 104 yards and snagged the game-winning touchdown with 07:58 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Bruce Miller (San Francisco) started at fullback and helped the 49ers edge the Packers, 34-28. Miller worked as the lead blocker for the San Francisco rushing attack and had two catches for 24 yards, including a 17-yard first down grab in the fourth quarter.

Josh Sitton (Green Bay) made his first-career start at left guard after starting 64 games in his career at right guard. Helping Aaron Rodgers stay up-right, Sitton and the Packers gained 385 yards of total offense.

Josh Robinson (Minnesota) got the call at left cornerback and was routinely matched up with Lions star wideout Calvin Johnson. In addition to holding Johnson to just four catches for 37 yards, Robinson racked up five tackles and forced a third-quarter fumble that the Vikings recovered.

North of the border, a trio of UCF players are continuing their CFL careers as Joe Burnett is suiting up with Edmonton, Mike Sims-Walker joined Winnipeg and Keith Shologan is with Saskatchewan. Burnett and Shologan have each seen action in eight contests, while Sims-Walker has yet to debut after signing his contract on Aug. 27.
