The No. 25 UCF Knights have taken down the Bearcats on the road 51-23, earning their first 4-0 start since 1982.
Cincinnati had no answer for the Knights’ aerial assault, apparent from the first drive of the game. UCF took four plays to find the end zone on a 54-yard touchdown to Dredrick Snelson, notching six points and removing just 1:21 off the clock.
Normally the UCF defense sets the tone game in and game out, but the heavy-handed-hitters took a backseat to their UCFast counterparts, letting Cincinnati score more points than any team has on them all season.
Cincinnati quarterback Hayden Moore was the silver lining in the Bearcats’ cloud of despair, sneaking three touchdowns past the Knights; two on the ground and one through the air. That being said, he also threw an interception to defensive lineman Seyvon Lowry – who now has back-to-back games with an interception.
