Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos said UCF coach Scott Frost "has got the full package."

Moos went on to say that he expects Frost to land a Power 5 HC job "probably sooner than later." These are interesting comments in light of the fact that Frost will likely be Nebraska's No. 1 target if the Cornhuskers fire coach Mike Riley after the season. Riley is 19-15 at Nebraska and 4-4 this season. Frost, a former Nebraska quarterback, will have plenty of offers this winter after taking Central Florida from 0-12 before he arrived to 7-0 this season. "Well, Scott, of course, has a great resume. … He has learned from some of the great football minds in the business, throughout the years both at the college level and the professional ranks," said Moos.

UCF HC Scott Frost says he hasn’t been contacted by anybody regarding coaching rumors.

Frost went on to say that the rumors are easy for him to ignore. We'll see if that continues to be the case, because he's going to be answering a lot of questions about other school's vacancies or expected vacancies over the next few months. Frost is in hot demand after taking Central Florida from 0-12 before he arrived to 7-0 and a No. 15 ranking this season, his second at the helm. Prior to that, Frost spent seven years at Oregon, four as a WR coach under Chip Kelly and three as the OC under Mark Helfrich. For one, the Florida Gators, who just parted with HC Jim McElwain, figure to be interested. Frost has also been heavily connected to Nebraska, his alma mater.

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton (ankle) completed 24-of-26 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns in a 73-33 demolishing of Austin Peay on Saturday.

Milton was sensational, and could have had a much bigger game if UCF wasn't friendly and gone run-heavy in the second half. The Knights didn't have him run as much as they usually do, but he was still able to add a rushing score to his impressive resume. UCF is a legit New Years Six bull contender in 2017, and will look to stay undefeated next week against SMU.
Oct 28 - 8:40 PM

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton injured his hamstring in Saturday's win over Navy, but expects to play in this weekend's game against Austin Peay.

Milton was briefly forced out in the second quarter on Saturday due to the minor injury concern. He was able to reenter the game, though, and there are no indications at this juncture that he'll be sidelined against Austin Peay. The true sophomore gunslinger has thrown for 1,722 yards (69.5% completions) with a 16/3 TD/INT ratio in six games this season.
Oct 24 - 10:43 PM

UCF senior LB Shaquem Griffin was named one of Week 8's risers by Draft Analyst Tony Pauline for his play against Navy on Saturday.

If Griffin's name sounds familiar, it could be because he's the brother of current Seattle Seahawk cornerback and former Central Florida player Shaquill Griffin. Pauline notes that Griffin is slightly undersized at 6-foot, 215 pounds,but Pauline says he plays "big football, flying around the field sideline to sideline to make tackles. He’ll be a good fit as a hybrid linebacker in a one-gap system and should be a demon on coverage units."
Oct 23 - 8:40 PM

UCF sophomore RB Adrian Killins rushed for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 15 carries in Saturday's 31-21 win over Navy.

Much of Killins' damage came courtesy of a 79-yard touchdown sprint in the third quarter, a score that broke a 14-14 tie. A home run threat waiting to happen, Killins is averaging nine yards a carry. He's surpassed 100 yards in three of the last five games.
Oct 21 - 7:05 PM

UCF sophomore QB McKenzie Milton completed 15-of-23 passes for 233 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing for 47 more yards in Saturday's 31-21 victory over Navy.

Milton was briefly replaced by Noah Vedral after leaving the game with an undisclosed injury. After being evaluated by trainers in the medical tent, he returned. Milton, a Hawaii native, has been stellar in leading UCF to a 6-0 start. The Knights are on a crash course to meet USF in a regular season finale between unbeaten teams. Both squads will be favored in every game before then.
Oct 21 - 7:01 PM

UCF junior WR Tre'Quan Smith "offers enough size and skill to make a next level roster as a fourth wideout," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.
