On this week’s episode of UCF Football Now, Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi and Knights beat reporter Jason Beede recap the team’s dramatic win over rival USF, preview the AAC championship game at Tulane and more.

The two discuss Alec Holler’s game-winning touchdown catch, wonder where the catch ranks all-time in program history and highlight Holler’s journey from walk-on to star player at UCF.

Bianchi and Beede recap the latest college coaching news — including Luke Fickell leaving Cincinnati for Wisconsin — and question how much of a distraction the Georgia Tech rumors will be for Tulane coach Willie Fritz.

Rapid fire topics include Javon Baker’s 41-yard catch against USF, a look at UCF’s failed squib kick vs. the Bulls and Mike Norvell’s comments about FSU being state champions.

Beede’s Fan of the Week shows that sometimes watching UCF football can complicate travel plans.
