Florida News: american athletic conference
McKenzie Milton's presence was felt as UCF stage a second-half comeback to win another conference championship.
Isaiah Wright returned a punt 73 yards for a go-ahead touchdown and Chapelle Russell recovered a fumble in the end zone to cap a big second half as Temple rallied for a 27-17 victory over South Florida on Saturday.
D'Eriq King had a hand in a career-high seven touchdowns, throwing for 419 yards and five scores and running for 134 yards and two more touchdowns in Houston's 57-36 victory over No. 21 South Florida.
No. 23 USF still has some things to clean up as conference play resumes Friday night at Tulsa
UCF continues to manhandle opponents and looks impressive in so doing.
McKenzie Milton ran for a career-best three touchdowns while throwing for three more, helping the Knights rally from a second-quarter deficit to remain unbeaten and extend the nation's longest winning streak with a 56-36 rout of Florida Atlantic on Friday night.
The USF Bulls open conference play Saturday night against an ECU team that was displaced by Hurricane Florence and has been staying in Orlando.
To open the new year, #21 UCF's plane to Rentschler Field was delayed a few hours. Still, they traveled to East Hartford to play the inexperienced Connecticut Huskies. The evening went mostly as expected for the reigning champion Knights.
The USF team that takes the field for Saturday night’s opener at Raymond James Stadium against Elon will look much different than the team that concluded last season with a Birmingham Bowl victory over Texas Tech.
It was the Bulls’ final scrimmage before they begin to prepare in earnest for their September 1 opener against visiting Elon. Believe it or not that is little more than a week away, though coach Charlie Strong said there is still enough time when it comes to settling position battles, including what has been a three-way quarterback competition.
