The number one scoring offense in the nation continued to rain down points as UCF put up a school record 73 points Saturday night over FCS Austin Peay. The number 15th ranked Knights improved to (7-0) for the first time in school history winning 73-33 over the Governors.

However, it wasn’t a picnic for head coach Scott Frost.
“I’m not completely happy with our performance,” Frost said, after the game, “but it’s good any time you can play less than your best and get a win. It’s rewarding and it’s a good thing.”
The Knights defense gave up 26 first-half points, the most they’ve given up all season. They missed multiple tackles in the first half and gave up a 91-yard kickoff return.
“Winning isn’t easy. I don’t care who you’re playing,” Frost said. “I was really impressed with their team and what their coaching staff has done…that being said I don’t think we played our best game.”
This week’s opponent will be a battle if the Knights defense doesn’t adjust from the past game. UCF travels to Texas to face (6-2) SMU, coached by Chad Morris. Kickoff is set for 7:15pm on ESPN2, Saturday evening.
