Fiesta Bowl Preview: Even With Backup QB, UCF Can Stand Toe-to-Toe With LSU

The McKenzie Milton era at Central Florida came to a horrific end in the Knights’ regular season finale against South Florida when one of the nation’s best quarterbacks went down with a leg injury.

But UCF has managed to stay on track in the nearly two full games it’s won without Milton. The Knights finished off USF 38-10, easily covering a 15.5-point spread despite the injury to their superstar.

UCF then closed as a one-point favorite against a strong Memphis team in the AAC Championship Game and faced a 38-21 halftime deficit before roaring back in the second half to win 56-41.
