East Carolina at UCF

UCF 49, East Carolina 35

  •  

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Ronnie Weaver had a career-high 180 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and Central Florida took a huge step toward a Conference USA title with a 49-35 victory over East Carolina on Saturday.

Latavius Murray ran for 47 yards and three touchdowns, freshman Jeff Godfrey threw for 159 yards and two scores and UCF found the end zone on its first four possessions. The Knights (6-2, 4-0) beat the Pirates for the first time in five years and are the only team still undefeated in league play.

Dominique Davis threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns with one interception, leading a late East Carolina comeback that came up short. The two-time defending conference champion Pirates (5-3, 4-1) will need - at the very least - to win out and hope UCF loses twice to represent the East Division in the conference title game.
