The game featured 92 points and 1,300 yards of total offense, but in the end, UCF outlasted Temple 52-40 at Spectrum Stadium, and never let go of first place in the division.
The win extended the Knights’ win streak to 21, which was the longest in the country, as well as scoring 30 or more points in a game in 21 straight games. The win also made it 12 straight home victories for UCF.
