UCF extends win streak

UNDATED (AP) — Eighth-ranked UCF was able to run the nation’s longest winning streak to 24 games despite playing the second half without their No. 1 quarterback.

McKenzie Milton injured his knee while being tackled at the end of a 5-yard run in the second quarter of the Knights’ 38-10 romp over South Florida. The entire UCF squad left their sideline at one point to form a crowded circle around Milton, who was placed on the cart and taken to a nearby hospital.

Coach Josh Heupel (HY’-pul) declined to announce the nature of the injury, but it appears Milton is done for the season.

Greg McCrae finished with 181 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 16 carries for the Knights. Darriel Mack Jr. was just 5-for-14 for 81 yards after replacing Milton.

UCF amassed 558 yards total offense and have scored at least 30 points in 24 consecutive games.
