The Knights brought a two-game winning streak into their contest against Stanford last week; they left with a three-game streak. UCF had enough points to win and then some against Stanford, taking their matchup 45-27. QB Dillon Gabriel did work as he passed for 347 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh and Penn State couldn’t quite live up to the 53-point over/under that the experts had forecasted. The Panthers fell to Penn State 10-17. If the Panthers were hoping to take revenge for the 6-51 defeat against Penn State the last time the teams met, then they were left disappointed.
UCF’s victory lifted them to 3-0 while Pittsburgh’s loss dropped them down to 1-2. Pittsburgh is ninth worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 87.30 on average. On the other hand, UCF rank third in the league when it comes to overall touchdowns, with 21 on the season. So the Pittsburgh squad has its work cut out for it.
