2018 American Football Highlights – #9 UCF 38, USF 10

TAMPA, Fla. — No. 8 UCF lost quarterback McKenzie Milton to injury but still trounced South Florida 38-10 on Friday to extend the nation’s longest winning streak to 24 games and complete a second consecutive undefeated regular season.

Milton, eighth in Heisman Trophy balloting a year ago, hurt his right knee when he was tackled at the end of a 5-yard run in the second quarter. Darriel Mack Jr. replaced him and may make his second start of the year when UCF (11-0, 8-0, No. 9 CFP) faces Memphis next week in the American Athletic Conference title game.

Players from both schools, which are located about 100 miles apart via Interstate 4, kneeled on one knee while a cart was rolled onto the field and Milton received medical attention in front of the South Florida bench. The entire UCF squad left their sideline at one point to form a crowded circle around Milton, who was placed on the cart and taken to the locker room and later a nearby hospital.

Before leaving, Milton completed 5 of 10 passes for 86 yards, including a 14-yard scoring throw to Gabriel Davis for a 7-0 lead. The Knights kicked a field goal on the first play after the quarterback departed to make it 10-0.

Mack got plenty of help from a talented supporting cast that includes Greg McCrae to make sure UCF finished the job. South Florida (7-5, 3-5) finished the regular season on a five-game losing streak, its longest skid since 2013.

McCrae scored on runs of 40, 39 and 31yards, with the second of the three TDs re-establishing a 14-point after South Florida briefly pulled to 17-10 on Johnny Ford’s 34-yard catch-and-run for the Bulls’ only touchdown.

McCrae finished with 181 yards rushing on 16 carries for the Knights, who amassed 558 yards total offense and have scored at least 30 points in 24 consecutive games — matching South Florida (2015-17) for the longest such streak since 1939.

Ford rushed for 120 yards on 16 attempts for South Florida, which played without injured quarterback Blake Barnett (shoulder/ankle).

THE TAKEAWAY

UCF: The Knights lost Milton, but were still good enough to take care of their intrastate rival. Mack also led the team to a 37-10 road victory over East Carolina while Milton was sidelined with an undisclosed injury on Oct. 20.

South Florida: After a 7-0 start, the Bulls faded quickly down the stretch. The defense is partly responsible, allowing 57, 41, 35, 27 and 38 points in losses to Houston, Tulane, Cincinnati, Temple and UCF, but the offense had difficulty sustaining drives and getting in the end zone.

UCF QB McKenzie Milton injury against South Florida

UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton was carted off the field after suffering what appears to have been a severe leg injury during the second quarter of a game against South Florida. Milton was surrounded by teammates and coaches from both teams while being attended to on the field by medical personnel.

Milton suffered the injury on a third-down play. After scrambling to pick up a first down on third-and-7, Milton took a hit to the right leg from a defender making the tackle. While there is no official word on the injury, judging by what could be seen via television cameras during the play and afterward, it appears to be a serious injury for Milton.

The junior quarterback is one of the most prolific in program history after starting his career under the tutelage of now Nebraska coach Scott Frost. He has thrown for 8,597 yards, 71 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. Freshman Darriel Mack Jr. came on in relief of Milton. Mack started in place of the Hawaiian against East Carolina after Milton suffered an ankle injury earlier in the season.

The Knights are currently riding a 23-game winning streak and hoping to reach a New Year’s Six bowl for the second straight year.
