The Knights are 19-9 ATS in all games over the last three seasons. The last meeting went under the total.


UCF is giving up a lot of points here, but it just creamed Pitt by 31 and SMU didn't exactly have the best tuneup game in Houston Baptist. The Knights still feel like their proving their worth to the nation as a powerful program and dominating opponents like this is a must. Lay the points with UCF.
