Akron Can’t Handle UCF Pass Attack
Posted By Blake Bass On August 30, 2013 @ 8:07 AM In Florida News,NCAA | No Comments
Storm Johnson added 99 yards rushing and two scores as the Knights won their eighth consecutive season-opener and second straight over the Zips.
It was the first 300-yard passing game of Bortles’ career and the first by a Knights’ quarterback since 2009.
Akron dropped its 10th straight game, dating back to last season.
The Zips put pressure on Bortles, but never got traction on offense and had a pair of turnovers. Akron also struggled on third down in the first half (2 of 6) and failed to keep UCF’s secondary off balance despite its hurry-up attack.
The Knights are on the road next at Florida International. Akron opens its home schedule against James Madison.
