What’s Going To Happen
It’s the biggest star vs. one of the biggest clunkers.
East Carolina can’t seem to come up with a decent defensive stop, and last week it couldn’t get the O moving in a 34-10 loss to Temple. And now, with road games at Houston and Memphis still to go, any and all hopes of going bowling – as pie-in-the-sky dreamy as that might be – are gone if they can’t pull off a shocker.
But UCF is too good.
It’s not a shocker the the Knights are good, but to be 4-0 with every game an ugly blowout is one of the biggest stunners of the college football season. With the Navy showdown up next, they need to put this away with ease, stay healthy, and get ready for the cut blocks.
So what are the Pirates doing right? Not a lot, but they can throw the ball a bit to potentially keep up the pace. UCF already dealt with Riley Ferguson and the Memphis passing attack just fine, and the pass protection has been okay. Other than that, it’s been a nightmare.
It’s not just that ECU is dead last in the country in total defense, it’s how. It’s dead last in third down stops, and UCF is an ultra-efficient machine at the moment.
McKenzie Milton is playing as well as any quarterback in the country, the offense doesn’t turn the ball over enough to give ECU a break, and the production and fun will continue on headed into the road trip to Annapolis.
And maybe the pollsters will finally wake up and realize UCF would be ranked higher than USF.
