UCF Game Balls: Week 3 vs Boston College

After a strong first half in which UCF led 7-3, the Knights collapsed in the second part of the game at Alumni Stadium, as they fell to Boston College 34-7. Despite the lopsided loss, UCF had some bright spots on an otherwise bleak Saturday afternoon.

Brian Watters -
The sophomore receiver had a coming out party of sorts, leading the team with six receptions for 59 yards. This was his best game since last year's game against Marshall, in which he totaled 88 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Watters ran smooth routes, displayed solid hands and got open consistently. This was a very good game for Watters and look for him to build on it.

Cory Hogue -
UCF's senior leader on defense finished with 6.5 tackles, including two for a loss. Hogue brought his usual intensity from the linebacker position and played hard through the end of the game, catching a BC running back from behind and preventing a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Joe Burnett -
‘Smoking' Joe didn't have the same explosiveness as he did in the return game last week, but was very solid in pass coverage for most of the evening. He had three pass break-ups, was credited with one interception and consistently ran stride for stride down the field with receivers.

Patrick Brown -
The senior lineman gave up zero sacks and did a fine job protecting two different quarterbacks with contrasting styles.
