The defense of the UCF Knights wasn’t satisfied with simply keeping Tulane off of the scoreboard.
The defense wanted some points of its own.
Central Florida scored three times on defense to overtake the Tulane Green Waves in Saturday’s 37-6 victory. Drico Johnson returned a fumble recovery 30 yards for one score and an interception 86 yards. Shaquill Griffin returned an interception 33 yards for a score.
Our defense and defensive coaching staff deserve a lot of credit for what they’ve done this year,” head coach Scott Frost said. “They were dominant tonight in all phases on defense. The staff and players on defense did an unbelievable job. I tip my hat to Coach (Erik) Chinander and his guys. It was a great win for the program.”
Quarterbacks McKenzie Milton and Justin Holman each ran in a score for one yard.
The Knights started slowly, trailing 6-0 after a period. UFC totalled only 297 yards on the evening.
UCF is home next week against Cincinnati.
