ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Steven Moffett threw for 199 yards and
three touchdowns as Central Florida beat Villanova 35-16 Saturday,
the first season-opening win for the Golden Knights in eight years.
Mike Walker, playing his first game since recovering from a knee
injury suffered last season, had six catches for 77 yards and two
Villanova outgained UCF in total yardage 322-204, but the
Wildcats stopped themselves with an interception and two missed
field goals. They also failed to convert a fourth-and-1 at the UCF
26 early in the second half.
Moffett was nearly perfect in the first half when UCF jumped out
to a 28-7 lead. After going three-and-out on his first possession,
he went 10-for-10 for 146 yards and three touchdowns as UCF scored
on four straight possessions.
However, UCF's Kevin Smith capped a 14-play, 77-yard drive with
a 1-yard scoring run to seal the win for the Golden Knights.
After LB Jaylon Smith's injury in the Fiesta Bowl, the only Buckeye to visit him on the field was RB Ezekiel Elliott. On draft day, Elliott joined Smith to welcome him to the Dallas Cowboys.
