UCF was without their star quarterback, McKenzie Milton. UCF was down 21 in the second quarter.
And somehow, their winning streak has lived to see another day.
Redshirt freshman D.J. Mack tallied seven total touchdowns, and the Knights overcame three, first-half turnovers en route to the 56-41 win. It is their 25th consecutive win.
Memphis (8-5) jumped out to a 14-0 lead within the first five minutes of the game. They led 24-7 at the end of the first quarter. The Tigers did outrush the Knights, thanks in large part to Darrell Henderson's 200+ yard performance.
Mack found seven different receivers over the course of the game. The running back tandem of Greg McCrae and Adrian Killins Jr. was also critical in orchestrating the second-half comeback: McCrae and Killens combined for over 250 rushing yards.
The Knights (13-0) will find out which bowl game they will play in tomorrow afternoon. The College Football Playoff Selection Show begins at noon EST on ESPN on Sunday, December 2, with the four-team playoff announced at 12:30 p.m. and the rest of the Top-25 reveal to follow.
