From the moment he signed on as Central Florida’s new football coach, the talk about Scott Frost has been his high-speed offense.
That was okay in Saturday night’s debut.
It was the defense that really shined, however.
The Knights won their opener, 38-0, over South Carolina State. After last year’s 0-11 results, the win was welcome. The fact that the program looks to be headed in a good direction was even better.
UCF held South Carolina State to only 138 yards passing and only 85 yards rushing. No South Carolina State runner gained more than 38 yards and no receiver more than 37 in their game.
UCF quarterback Justin Holman threw for two scores and ran for a third.
Things get tougher for UCF next week when it plays against Michigan.
