The No. 17 UCF Knights survived a battle with Southern Methodist University Saturday night that lasted through the fourth quarter.

SMU led with a touchdown to break open the scoring game and the Knights kept pace until game’s end. UCF struggled to produce its explosive offense in Dallas yet still managed to win by a score.


As the fourth quarter drew on and the Mustangs saw victory, critical third and fourth down conversions hung over UCF’s head. Defensive coordinator Eric Chinander secured the playing field while Milton kneeled with a minute twenty seconds left to call the game.
