UCF head coach Scott Frost began his weekly press conference on Monday by taking a look back at what his team could have done better in the win at Navy.
“I think the big lesson to take out of it is that we need to limit our own mistakes,” he said. “I give a ton of credit to them, but we should have scored more times in the first half and the game would have been different.”
Frost was happy with how his team responded to the adversity.
“I thought they responded well,” he said. “I saw a lot of frustrated guys early in the game, especially on offense when we weren’t finishing drives. That put us in a situation where we were in a dogfight. You never know how a team is going to respond in one of those games until you get in one. I thought our guys did enough in the end and compete well enough to get the job done.”
