Last Saturday, UCF really took it to Villanova for the full four quarters, racking up a 48-14 victory at home. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 34-0.
RB RJ Harvey and QB Timmy McClain were among the main playmakers for UCF as the former rushed for 85 yards and two touchdowns and the latter threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns. Those two rushing touchdowns set a new season-high mark for Harvey. It was a true group effort though, as the team also got help from RB Jordan McDonald, who rushed for 40 yards and two touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the point spread favored Kansas State on Saturday, but luck did not. They fell just short of Missouri by a score of 30-27. The loss put an end to Kansas State's undefeated start to the season.
Kansas State's loss shouldn't obscure the performances of QB Will Howard, who threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns, and TE Ben Sinnott who picked up 78 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Those two receiving touchdowns set a new season-high mark for Sinnott.
UCF will be fighting an uphill battle on Saturday as the experts have pegged them as the 6.5-point underdog. This will be their first time playing as the underdogs on the road this season.
