East Carolina used to be such a fun program when they were chucking the ball all over the field and putting scared into ACC opponents. Those days seem long gone.
UCF has become great fun again though. They are playing up tempo and dominating and hopefully they enter the final week of the season at USF undefeated.
East Carolina Pirates
ECU is terrible right now. They used to at least be able to score the ball on folks but this season they can neither score nor stop anyone. It is ugly.
The offense is 20th in passing. That looks good but it is hard to know how much of that has come in garbage time given their results this season.
The Pirates are the worst defensive team in college football. They are yielding 600 yards and 48ppg. Kind of hard to fathom because some of the offenses they have played are hardly elite.
It is hard not to like this exciting Knights team and not to root for them after their 0-12 season a couple of years ago. They are the top scoring team in the nation and play pretty good defense too.
McKenzie Milton is doing a great Greg Ward impression in leading a Group of 5 team to elite performance as an undersized dual threat QB. He is completing almost 70% of his passes.
UCF has always been able to get dudes on defense. They are giving up just 15ppg making for an average margin of more than 30ppg. As long as they are healthy they can keep rolling.
