ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – It was a little under one month since the UCF Knights (6-1, 3-0) had their last home game at Bright House Networks Stadium, but the team put on quite a show and set or tied numerous team records on Saturday afternoon.
The 62 points the team scored in its 62-17 victory against the UConn Huskie (0-7, 0-3) were the most points ever scored in a conference game in school history. The 527 total yards of offense were the most UCF posted this season and this win also makes the Knights bowl eligible for the fourth time in the last five seasons.
Going to a bowl game is one of the team’s goals every season, but the Knights are still focused and working hard towards an American Athletic Conference Championship in the conference’s inaugural season.
“We know from here on out it’s a one-game season, like coach [O’Leary] says, a championship game for every game that we play,” said senior wide receiver Jeff Godfrey (No. 2). “We work hard. That’s what we want to do as a team. Our goal is to win the championship, so every game is like a championship game.”
The team has its final bye week of the season next week and the team plans to keep improving like it has all season.
“I feel we can only go up hill from here,” said junior receiver J.J. Worton (No. 9). “We’re trying to be the best team player out there and help out everyone that we can.”
