Fresh off a week after their disconcerting loss to Tulsa, the UCF Knights are on the road again, for the third time in the first four games, to take on the ever-competitive but still-competitive Memphis Tigers.
ABC will be broadcasting the game live, making it the third time the national network has seen UCF this season
All-time: UCF leads 13-1 and has won 13 in a row since 2005 Memphis last win dates back to 1990, when UCF was in Division I-AA and Memphis was an IA Independent Three of the last five meetings were decided by a score
Last meeting: The 2018 American Championship DJ Mack led a spectacular comeback as all seemed lost
Note: The last two Liberty Bowl games were decided late in close one-scoring games.Remember the 31-30 thriller of 2018, but you might not remember the game of 2013, where UCF scored an even TD with 2:05 left on a chance fumble from Chris Martin, and on the ensuing kickoff, Will Stanback did this:
The Tigers opened the season with a win over Arkansas State, but then stayed away for a month due to a COVID-19 outbreak In their first comeback game, they lost a critical conference match with SMU to a late basket, 30-27
Head Coach: Ryan Silverfield Silverfield is in his first year, taking over after Mike Norvell left for Florida State after four successful years. He has been an assistant at Memphis since 2016, coaching the offensive line which has paved the way for Darrell Henderson Silverfield played his high school ball at Bolles School in Jacksonville and was a graduate assistant at UCF under George O’Leary in 2006 and 2007, working with the O-Line who assisted Kevin Smith to a season of 2,500 yards
The Memphis defense is 16th in the country against the run, but 76th against the pass Their top five tackles are all in high school So Dillon Gabriel has a golden opportunity here on a sunny day (as opposed to the rainy Tulsa game) ) to tear the tiger’s tusk to pieces
However, in order to do this he must attack the whole court UCF did not attack the midfield too much, and if the passing game is going to sink, it must become less predictable
Brady White is back, executing another strong attack that is remarkably balanced (15th nationally in the race, 19th by the way, 9th overall) With the retirement of Kenny Gainwell this year, the rushed attack returned to Rodrigues Clark, who has run 203 yards this season, and Kylan Watkins, who has 120 more When White attacks in the air, he has sought out WR Damonte Coxie and TE Sean Dykes, who have each caught 16 balls each this year.
The pressure will be on UCF linebackers Eriq Gilyard and Eric Mitchell to jam the race and not fall into the action
