Breaking Down the UCF Knights Win Total

2020 College Football Season

UCF: O/U 9.5 Wins -- Title Odds: NA Click Here for the Latest Odds

The UCF Knights will be looking to mirror the success that the program saw during the 2019 season.  Central Florida finished the 2019 season with an overall record of (10-3), while going (6-2) in AAC play.  The offense put up points in a hurry last season, averaging 43.4 per game, which ranked 5th at the FBS level.  The defense allowed 23 points per contest, which was good enough for 23rd.  The program is under the direction of Josh Heupel.

The offense was guided by freshman quarterback Dillon Gabriel.  Gabriel passed for 3,653 yards and 29 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.  As a team, the backfield totaled 34 rushing touchdowns.  Otis Anderson led the charge in the backfield, collecting 726 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns.  Wideout Gabriel Davis paced the receiving core, hauling in 72 receptions for 1,241 yards and 12 touchdowns.  Davis was drafted in the 4th round by the Buffalo Bills.  Tre Nixon looks to be the number 1 receiver for the 2020 season, as he returns for a senior season.  Nixon reeled in 49 receptions for 830 yards and 7 touchdowns a season ago.

As a team the defense totaled 33 sacks and 13 interceptions.  The defense was led by linebacker Nate Evans.  Evans collected 112 tackles, and is now on the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Defensive lineman Brendon Hayes led the team in sacks with 7.5 as a senior.  Defensive back Aaron Robinson is the leader in the secondary, after finishing the 2019 season with 10 pass break ups and 3 interceptions.  He will be back for the Knights roaming the secondary for his senior season.

Let us take a look at the Central Florida schedule for the 2020 season.      

Sept. 4 North Carolina

Sept. 12 FIU

Sept. 18 at Georgia Tech

Sept. 24 at East Carolina

Oct. 3 Tulsa

Oct. 16 at Memphis

Oct. 24 Tulane

Oct. 31 at Houston

Nov. 7 Florida A&M

Nov. 14 Temple

Nov. 21 Cincinnati

Nov. 28 at USF

The Knights open the season with three straight non-conference matchups.  UCF will be looking to start the season off right with a win over North Carolina at home.  Central Florida will then play host to FIU, before heading to Georgia Tech.  

The projected win total is set at 9.5 wins.  UCF has a very good chance to start the season with a 5-0 record.  The Knights will take care of business with their first two home games.  UCF heads to Georgia Tech, which is a program that has struggled with offense.  Georgia Tech will not be able to keep up with UCF’s high powered offense.  Central Florida will then take on East Carolina and Tulsa.  Both AAC teams were near the bottom a season ago, combining for just 3 conference wins.  Other wins on the schedule that are likely are: Tulane, at Houston, Florida A&M, Temple, at South Florida.  

Central Florida has a lot of returning talent on the offensive side of the ball and should be able to keep pace with any offense.  A stop here and there, will help UCF beat some of the tougher teams on their schedule.  I’m going to side with the over, as a 10-2 record is very realistic.
