Good luck today, @DevinWhite__40! #GetLive40 #LSU vs. UCF PS: Tell #DaisyMae🌸 we said hey 🥕🐴
UCFs starting defensive backs are having more trouble than LSUs ninth-string defensive backs
Mack lit up Memphis in the AAC Championship Game, throwing for 407 yards and six touchdowns (two passing, four rushing), but Memphis' defense is a different animal than LSU.
This was one of the most impressive defensive performances of the season from any team in the country based on the circumstances before and during the game.
Whats your reason why? Love it. Embrace it. #LSU vs. UCF Noon CT | ESPN
Punt exchange After LSU's first punt of the game, the Tigers forced another UCF three-and-out in a series that included Knights' QB Darriel Mack flagged for intention grounding.
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow had the best game of his career, going 21 of 34 for 394 yards passing and four touchdowns for an offense that racked up 555 yards and averaged 6.5 yards per play against the overmatched Knights defense.
UCF's (12-0) offense will be manned by backup quarterback Darriel Mack Jr. after McKenzie Milton suffered a season-ending injury against South Florida in November.
This year, the team once again finished with an undefeated regular season and now will meet LSU for the 2019 Fiesta Bowl.
If UCF wants to chirp about how great it is and how much it can hang with the big boys, it needs to pop on a replay of this game and realize what true college football powers look like.
Its Go Time at the Fiesta Bowl! ⚔️ 📺: ESPN / 🎙️: 96.9 The Game / 📈:
No. 11 LSU topped No. 8 UCF 40-32 on Tuesday in the Fiesta Bowl to improve its record to 10-3 on the season and break the Knights' 25-game winning streak dating back to the start of the 2017 campaign.
Wild 1st Q ending LSU star linebacker Devin White forced a fumble by UCF QB Darriel Mack, on a run, recovered by the Tigers' Michael Divinty on the next to last play of the first quarter.
Tracy connects again Cole Tracy hit his third field goal, a 28-yarder, bumping LSU's lead back to 13 points, 37-24 to offset UCF's FG on the previous possession.
LSU has a huge advantage up front OL vs UCF D line. Don’t understand why they’re not pounding the rock, or why the WRs can’t get separation.
Burrow posted just the eighth 300-yard passing game this decade for LSU, and he became the first Tigers QB to throw for 300 yards and four touchdowns since Matt Mauck in 2003.
The Group of 5 has had good success against the Power 5 in these New Year’s Day games since the inception of the College Football Playoff with Boise State beating Arizona and Houston beating Florida State in the first two years and UCF beating Auburn last year.
LSU used both on its first possession of the second half to set up a 32-yard touchdown pass off play action from QB Joe Burrow to WR Ja'Marr Chase, who had separation in the end zone.
LSU is here! Fiesta Bowl vs undefeated UCF on ESPN at 1pm ET
LSU linebacker Devin White is showing why he could be the perfect prospect for the Raiders (via @DaltonJ_Johnson)
Yeah, LSU’s nickel defense is depleted a bit, but the Tigers will make up the difference in their front line going against that UCF O-line.
Unbelievable: 18 players on this year’s UCF team were on the team that went winless in 2015 (0-12) and went perfect in 2017 & 2018 (25-0). The streak is on the line vs LSU today in the Fiesta Bowl.
