The Central Florida Golden Knights are on their way to what could be a historic season. With a miraculous come from behind win against the lowly Temple Owls, the Knight kept on pace for a great season. Now they will host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a Thursday night college football showcase that will be on national television. This will give the Golden Knights a chance to show the world that they are for real.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Central Florida Golden Knights Odds
The college football odds for this game favor Central Florida as they opened up as a double digit favorite. This line has increased as it opened at (-14) and it can now be found at (-17) as the public is hammering Central Florida in the early betting opportunities. Perhaps it is due to the fact that Rutgers was destroyed by Cincinnati, but over 85 percent of the public is fading the Scarlet Knights here.
The Knights needed yet another big win to avoid a loss that would derail their season.
Shawn Moffitt kicked a 23-yard field goal as time expired after Rannell Hall got behind the Temple defense for a 64-yard reception, and the 17th-ranked Knights survived a scare with a 39-36 victory Saturday. For the fourth time this season, UCF trailed in the second half and won. UCF's last possession started at its own 19, with no timeouts. Overtime seemed likely until Blake Bortles found Hall deep to get to the Temple 6. It was all UCF from there as they won again.
