AAC Championship: Memphis at UCF – Saturday 3:30 p.m. ET
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – The College Football Playoff Committee unveiled their new rankings Tuesday night and moved the UCF Knights up to No. 8.
Despite losing their starting quarterback McKenzie Milton last week to a gruesome right leg injury that hospitalized the junior signal caller, UCF went on to defeat USF 38-10 in the ‘War on I-4’ rivalry.
With Milton out for the season, UCF will look to capture back-to-back AAC Championships Saturday afternoon at Spectrum Stadium when they host Memphis in a rematch of last year’s thrilling 62-55 double-overtime Knights win for the AAC Championship.
This year, UCF squeaked out a 31-30 comeback win at Memphis back on October 13.
Backup UCF quarterback Darriel Mack Jr. will be in line to be the starter for Saturday’s game. He will be making his second start this season. Mack Jr.’s last start came against East Carolina back on October 20 where he threw 12-for-20 and 69 yards, while accumulating 120 yards on the ground on 22 rushing attempts.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
