ORLANDO, Fla. — UCF has been electric through one half of football, flying out to a 40-10 start in their season opener.
McKenzie Milton has had all day to throw, tying a career high with three touchdowns in the first half alone. He has spread the ball around with ease – connecting with Freshman Gabe Davis, Tight End Jordan Akins and Tre’Quan Smith each for a score.
Jawon Hamilton and Taj McGowan have both carried the rock into the end zone as well, having a field day with the FIU defense. A 44 yard Matthew Wright field goal and safety from Trysten Hill and Pat Jasinski round off the scoring plays from this half.
Expect one of the freshmen quarterbacks to take over in the second half if this trend continues.
