UCF (1-2) vs. FIU (0-3) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, September 24th
Game Time: 7:00 pm
Venue: FIU Stadium, Miami, FL
Network: beIN Sports
UCF went winless last year, and now FIU is trying to get its first victory.
Too early? Too dramatic? The Golden Panthers lost to a UMass team it had almost no business losing to, and while there are almost certain wins coming – Charlotte, Florida Atlantic, maybe – but beating UCF would do wonders.
FIU’s passing game has been a nightmare so far, and the running game isn’t helping the cause to settle everything down. To be fair, two of the losses came to Big Ten teams, and now there’s a chance to turn the entire season around by beating a team a few hundred miles up the road.
Nothing is really working on either side of the ball for FIU, while USC is showing tremendous promise despite its 1-2 start with a double-overtime loss to Maryland last week, while the Golden Panthers lost to the Terps 41-14.
With Knight QB Justin Holman struggling with a hamstring injury, freshman McKenzie Milton stepped in last week and gave Maryland all sorts of problems – UCF is going to be fine as long as the running game is working.
UCF’s pass defense had problems against Michigan, but didn’t allow a touchdown pass in either of the other games.
This isn’t when the FIU offense gets healthy.
