Peach Bowl: UCF vs

Tuesday, 02 Jan, 2018

3 Teams have not allowed an opponent to score 30 points in a game this season, including Auburn. The game airs on ESPN.

UCF may not be playing in either of tonight's College Football Playoff semifinals, but at least one person considers the Knights national champions.

McKenzie Milton threw two touchdown passes and ran for 116 yards with another touchdown, leading No. 10 Central Florida to a 34-27 Peach Bowl win over No. 7 Auburn on Monday that capped the Knights' ideal season.

The offseason for Auburn offensive line coach Herb Hand essentially begins right now as the employment contract for the second-year assistant coach ended on the day of Auburn's bowl game (Jan. 1, 2018).

The 7th-ranked Tigers allowed six sacks and 11 negative plays in a 34-27 loss to No. 12 UCF in the Peach Bowl. The Knights tied it on a 12-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback McKenzie Milton to Otis Anderson late in the third quarter.

Despite a few losses on the season, Brown says he's happy the team turned things around. Killins told the Orlando Sentinel: "SEC football, they don't have a lot of speed, honestly".

The injury kept Johnson from being that player against Georgia on December 2, when he set season-lows with 13 carries and 44 yards while also losing a crucial fumble.

"Kerryon's looked great every day in practice", quarterback Jarrett Stidham said.

The Knights end the 2017 season as the only unbeaten team in the country, finishing 13-0. He will have to show he can withstand hits after being protected from contact in practice. Frost was named Nebraska head coach on December 3, one day after leading UCF to the American Athletic Conference championship. Former Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel is Central Florida's new coach and will watch the game from a private box.

The Peach Bowl is a consolation price for No. 7 Auburn (10-3). It opened the contest going three-and-out, fumble, three-and-out, and kicking a 33-yard field goal that tied the game 3-3 with 11:11 left in the first half. But I know when people tune in, they are going to see a group of guys that love being around each other and play for each other. Kerryon Johnson finished with 71 yards on 22 carries.

The loss to UCF, which is Auburn's fourth straight January bowl loss under Malzahn represented just the fifth time that Auburn has failed to rush for 100 yards while under his watchful eye. Pat Jasinski leads the UCF Knights with 96 tackles, Shaquem Griffin has 5.5 sacks and Kyle Gibson has four interceptions.

"He does a great job of maintaining his composure", wide receiver Darius Slayton said. "The LSU loss was really demoralizing, but we really pulled through and I'm really proud of my Auburn Tigers". "If I can't move the way I wanted to, if I can't play the way I normally play, what good am I?" He started the second meeting against the Bulldogs on fire, completing his first eight passes for 70 yards and a touchdown to Nate-Craig Myers. Steele was Tennessee's linebacker coach and the Vols lost to Iowa at old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. That's a big deal: Fromm is not your normal true freshman, as illustrated by his performance in Georgia's biggest game in years. The Tigers defeated OR 22-19 in the BCS national-championship game on January 10, 2011, lost to Florida State 34-31 in the BCS national-championship game on January 6, 2014, and tied Syracuse 16-16 in the Sugar Bowl on January 1, 1988.
