Florida A&M Rattlers

The Rattlers are coming off a 6-5 season that saw them go 5-2 in MEAC play, which led to a 3rd place ranking in the conference. This was a vast improvement from the 3-8 season the team had delivered the previous season, so it’s safe to say that the program is happy with 1st year head coach Willie Simmons. Notwithstanding their success, they are likely to be picked up apart by UCF.

UCF Knights

The Knights are coming off a 12-1 season that saw them go undefeated in AAC conference play. Some college football betting fans argued that UCF deserved to be in the playoffs but their lack of strength of schedule certainly kept them from entering. Although they defeated Memphis 56-41 in the American Championship, they were promptly defeated by LSU 32-40 in the Fiesta Bowl. All in all it was a great debut for Josh Heupel, who was able to deliver another undefeated season for UCF football. Heupel returns in 2019 to lead the program once more. He is joined once more by second year defensive coordinator Randy Shannon.

Players to Watch: McKenzie Milton (2,663 passing yards, 25 TD, 6 INT), Greg McCrae (1,182 rushing yards, 10 TD, 8.9 AVG), and Gabriel Davis (815 receiving yards, 7 TD, 53 REC).
