Even though there has been some disruption to their schedule the Knights are off to a hot start. They are huge road favourites in this one.
Cincinnati is looking to stop a two game losing skid. It is very tough when you can’t score though. This program has really fallen off the last few years.
There is a reason that Scott Frost is in so many rumors about his alma mater. In a short period of time he has really turned things around at UCF. They dominated against Memphis in their last game and might be the best team in the AAC.
Against Memphis they put up more than 600 yards of offense. Even though they were gouging them on the ground (more than 7ypc) they still connected through the air. QB McKenzie Milton is putting up an AAC POY season.
The defense has always had athletes and they are playing good football. Memphis QB Riley Ferguson is a NFL prospect and they grounded him with three picks. Cincinnati’s offense should be even easier to defend.
Cincinnati fans might already be counting down until hoops season. The Bearcats are not expected to be a threat in the AAC this season and nothing we have seen so far indicates that is going to change.
New coach Luke Fickell is a defense guy but if the can’t get the team to score things are going to be very challenging. QB Hayden Moore has experience but other than a big game against Navy he has been too inconsistent.
At the defense is nowhere near good enough to get wins on its own. They are a sieve against the run. There is not much reason for teams to pass which is why their numbers there look half decent.

UCF is always a fave of mine but they are rarely in situations like this where they are favoured by so much. However, I do see this line as completely justifiable based on what we have seen so far.

Hard to believe a program that was winless a couple of seasons ago could be this chalky but I still like the Knights a lot.
With their balanced attack and strong defense they can score enough to cover the number and keep the Bearcats in check.
