When Florida teams play against eachother it always seems to mean a little more, and that is the case for this game.
In this game the UCF Knights make the trip to Boca Rotan to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls. Expect a very physical game between two teams who don’t like eachother.
The Central Florida Knights opened up their season with a win, and they are hoping for another special season this year.
In the first game of the season they took on Florida A&M and it was an easy blowout winner coming out ahead 62-0.
On the offensive side they were great racking up 694 yards including 338 yards on the ground. This will be a balanced attack all year, with the running game maybe being a little more important.
On the defensive side it was impressive giving up only 96 yards per game with only four yards allowed on the ground.
If this game was at home for the Knights they would probably be at least 17 point favorites, but they aren’t so they are only 10 point favorites.
If they want to have the type of season they are hoping for, this is a perfect chance to put on a show.
On the other side of this matchup is the FAU Owls who haven’t gotten any gifts with the scheduling to start the season.
Last weekend they went up to Ohio State and had to try and slow down Justin Fields which they weren’t able to do, and now they have to try and slow down the Knights defense.
Against FAU the defense wasn’t good giving up 45 points, but it could have been a lot of worse, if they wouldn’t have stepped up after the first quarter.
On the offensive side, this is a run-first team, and against Ohio State they had problems throwing the ball and it won’t get any easier in this game.
At quarterback it’s Chris Robison who has thrown for 178 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. In this game they are going to need probably have him throw at least a couple of touchdowns.
