I am never a fan of these FCS games but I wonder if they are even less sensible midseason. I know they are mainly about $$$ it seems logical that the gap between the different levels widens over the course of the seasons.
Still I am hopeful we are not going to see a hiccup by UCF in this spot. They need to win and do son in a way that makes it obvious of their level.
Austin Peay Governors
The Govs, out of the Ohio Valley Conference are no strangers to this level of competition. They opened at Cincinnati (losing 26-14) and lost at Miami of Ohio (31-10). This will be their toughest game to date.
Inside the OVC they are competing well (4-1) but they do not really stand out statistically on offense of defense.
This is a run first team that has yet to reach even 1000 yards passing on the season. They are going to have to be less predictable to be respectable in this matchup.
The Knights were solid but not spectacular in winning at Navy last week. They won by 10 and it is was the first time they did not cover the spread – it was a push.
Facing a run heavy attack probably was good prep for this week. They actually outgained the Middies on the ground and should have similar advantages this week.
The key to this one is not trying to do too much. It will be a test of coach Scott Frost’s coaching skill to get the level of commitment needed to advance to the next week without a hit to the resume.

There is no line that I can find but I was able to get a total. Usually these games, if they are lines, are done so about 24 hours before kickoff.

The Govs will try and slowdown the Knights but might not be able to do so. UCF has scored 50 or more in half their games this season.
The Knights might not be able to cover that total all on their own but any scores by Austin Peay will only rile them up further.
