HOUSTON, TEXAS (November 5, 2010) The University of Central Florida Knights are showing the Houston Cougars what a potent running game can accomplish as they take a 23-10 lead to the locker room at halftime .
The Knights have racked up a total of 328 yards on offense while holding the Cougars to 224 yards.
The Cougar defense has been unable to stop UCF quarterback Jeff Godfrey who has a combined 251 yards of offense while throwing for two touchdowns.
The true freshman quarterback will undoubtedly raise his rating after this game after completing 11 of 14 passes with no interceptions with 30 minutes yet to play.
Houston quarterback David Piland has completed 10 of 17 in the air for 100 yards and one interception.
UCF scored touchdowns on a Bruce Miller interception return, two pass receptions to Ricky Kay and A.J. Guyton and a Nick Cattoi field goal.
Houston got on the scoreboard on a 30-yard Matt Hogan field goal and a 33-yard pass reception to Patrick Edwards.
In the second half, the Cougars must find a way to gain more yardage against a stingy Knight defense and to contain the Knight’s rushing game.
I will have more highlights after the game.
