Game Notes
UCF proved they are no fluke in beating an Auburn team that knocked off two teams in the CFB Playoff in Alabama and Georgia. They forced some turnovers and capitalized on Auburn mistakes while doing the little things that put them there to begin with. Saquem Griffin was amazing in this game. He seemed to be in on almost every play for the Knights! Milton had a great second half, but he really struggled early.
