Bulls' late TD riles Knights
Apparently, USF tossed a tad more kerosene onto its flammable rivalry with UCF by tacking on a final TD in the waning moments of the Bulls' 48-31 romp Saturday.
After UCF turned the ball over on downs at its own 8-yard line with one timeout and only 1:44 remaining, the Bulls attempted four consecutive runs, the last of which was a 1-yard TD by backup TB D'Ernest Johnson.
Words were exchanged between coaches at midfield afterward. UCF coach Scott Frost had no comment, but Coach Willie Taggart shared a bit of what transpired with Times columnist Martin Fennelly.
"They said, 'We'll remember this,'" Taggart said. "I told 'em, 'We'll remember this too.' ... That's why we went for it, to make it a nice rivalry."
