Central Florida Knights
The Knights will most likely be targeting a repeat of their previous game: an unstoppable offense made possible by freshman QB Dillon Gabriel (14 touchdown throws total) and Gabriel Davis (8 touchdowns with a total of 500 yards). The Knights have offense-centric players that are simply the envy of other teams: they have Adrians Killins Jr., Otis Anderson, and Greg McCrae to pull out all the stops and transform the field into a high-scoring melee run. They will surely give any team’s defense a field day with their wide variety of options that will surely bring them closer to the touchdown area, yard per yard. They are surely pegged for a win by bettors as they march against a heavily defended Bearcats homefield.

The Bearcats are now known as the odds-defying NCAAF team after they came out as the unlikely winner versus a heavily-favored Marshall team on-the-toad. The Bearcats got out of that one thanks to their rock-solid defense- one of the things they will have to bank on when they defend against the knights. They need to find an answer versus Dillon Gabriel of UFC who is fueling their offensive engine. The Cincinnati Bearcats will be looking to Luke Fickell, their ever-reliable head coach, to further buff up their already-strong defensive line made up of brawny players such as Perry Young and Bryan Wright.
