UCF (6-0) vs. East Carolina (2-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
If the amazing run is going to stop, is it going to happen against a team like East Carolina?
The Pirates got their win over Old Dominion, and they shocked North Carolina at home, but can the offense pull something out of its ECU by bombing away against the UCF defense that just got hit by Memphis?
ECU actually is stunningly playing decent defense because the line is living in the backfield. Nate Harvey and the line are getting to the quarterback on a regular basis, and they have to be able to get to McKenzie Milton early and not let him get into a groove.
The Knights might have had issues with Memphis last week, but the offense keeps on ripping everyone apart averaging 556 yards per game and going at warp speed. ECU won’t be able to keep up the pace – it doesn’t have the running game to slow things down and take control.
Expect a shootout, with the combination of East Carolina quarterbacks getting the offense moving. But Milton will hit the 300-yard man for the first time since the win over Pitt with yet another big offensive performance. But with this Pirate D, it won’t be a total wipeout.
