UCF has excelled at making second-half adjustments this season, specifically on defense, and so far in the third quarter the Knights look like a vastly different team. On Temple's first two drives, UCF got an interception and forced a punt. Temple didn't go two straight drives without scoring in the first half.

UCF trailed Memphis at halftime a few weeks ago after giving up 339 first-half yards. Defensive coordinator Randy Shannon made some good halftime adjustments and Memphis stopped gaining yards at will. He and his staff need to make some major adjustments at halftime tonight, but UCF needs to tackle much better, too, if it wants to come back.

UCF and Temple combined for 808 yards and 39 first downs in a wild first half, but the story was the way the Owls took a 34-28 lead into halftime. If UCF wants to be a part of the College Football Playoff discussion, performances like the one it had in the first half will do nothing to help the cause.

Temple has outplayed UCF in the early going, racking up yards and points on a defense that has been inconsistent throughout the season. But the play of the game was Geoff Collins' decision to go for a fake field goal with quarterback Anthony Russo. It was perfectly timed and executed, and the type of decision making an underdog needs on the road against a ranked opponent.
