I thought the game was going to get postponed. I kept hanging around at the stadium waiting for the official word and than they said the game starts at 9:45. I noticed as soon as I entered the stadium, Nobody ever checked my ticket so I assume people got in for free. I didn't like the game was going to go past midnight but i would stay if the game stayed within in reach and this was my 1st sporting event since February last year so I was kinda desperate to make the most of being back at a sporting event.

We cameback to win from a 21 point deficit + Dillion Gabriel threw 2 picks. That's bad news for our opponents "hoping" to try to beat us. Any team that gets a 14 to 21 point lead on us, WE NEVER OUT OF THE GAME. Hopefully it helps when we play vs Memphis and at Cincinnati cause we need those wins to get control over the top of the conference.

I didn't know who would be the starting RB and obviously it's Bowser. I'm used to multiple RB'S getting snaps throughout the game(Killings, Anderson, Mccrae, Thompson, etc) and this game I think Richardson only played 4 snaps and Bowser played the rest. I think Bowser got 98% of the snaps which is unlike for UCF. I started yelling BOWSER in the 2nd quarter once he started to get some good runs and the people around me starting to get involved with Bowser in the 3rd quarter.

Being at the game you tend to notice a lot more than people do while watching On TV. A few things I saw:

Our run defense was spot on.
DG looked a bit lost on offense.
Boise St has a pretty damn good fan base making the trip all the way down here.
Even with the smaller crowd we sounded louder than ever.
Dominos pizza on campus completely sucks.

Anyone else filled with joy at watching KZ get into the FSU game tonight? Perhaps a botched snap away from leading an epic comeback in regulation. Wound up losing in OT. FSU needs to start him going forward, he was unreal for a guy who hasn't played in nearly 3 years. So happy for him to just get back on the field.

i watched that and FSU got too smart. their kicker actually made the longer field goal. then got iced by his own coach to get closer and missed.

Milton should start after this game. Travis looked horrible. Milton comes in and just watching it on TV you could sense things are turning. But with that being said Milton is also one majors hit away from his career being ended. He needs a much better O-Line

Why he didn't start for FSU, I don't get. He's definetly better than Travis. Milton better be the starter cause why transfer to FSU if your the backup when maybe you could have stayed at UCF unless your promised the starting job elsewhere. But FSU hasn't declared him the starter.

I thought i saw a tweet from either College Gameday or someone on twitter Saturday that Alabama was the only team in the top 25 that lived up to the ranking. There's no way only 1 team out of the top 25 teams looked good, Florida Gators definetly looked good.

probably competition. FAU isnt exactly a powerhouse. Penn St went into Wisconsin, not always an easy place to play. OSU won by 2 td's at Minnesota who was in the Big10 championship game 2 years ago. #18 Iowa beat #17 Indiana by 28.

but there were a lot of "struggle wins" by top ranked teams. I wont say Bama was the only team to look good though.

Bowser reminds me of Bortles. Both wear #5, their body seem similar. Bortles is a little more taller.

a little surprising. With all the angst that people had with the Longhorn network and BYU going independent and starting their own TV network. I wonder how that shakes out

WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BYU's announcement says 2023, so it seems that's the date they're most confident that play will begin, which is great. But apparently there's a slim chance it could be next season (2022). I imagine there's a LOT of discussions going on regarding buyouts, both on the AAC side as well as the BigXII (Texas and Oklahoma) side.
