UCF aims for signature win against Baylor

After a rough start to life in a new conference, UCF will look to make its first statement as a member of the Big 12 when it hosts Baylor on Saturday afternoon in Orlando, Fla.The Golden Knights (3-1, 0-1) had won three straight nonconference games before falling short in a 44-31 setback at Kansas State last week.Redshirt sophomore and USF transfer quarterback Timmy McClain was 14-of-24 passing for 264 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. RJ Harvey had 44 yards rushing on 13 carries and scored a 1-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter with the game out of reach.UCF may look to lean more on the run against Baylor, which ranks 104th in the country with 685 yards rushing allowed through four weeks.”Bottom line is for us to be effective, we’ve got to be effective running the football,” UCF coach Gus Malzahn said. “It doesn’t matter who we’re playing. We’re a run-play-action team.”Baylor (1-3, 0-1) is coming off its own disappointing outing where it scored just two first-half field goals on six red zone trips in a 38-6 loss at home to unbeaten rival Texas.Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers threw for 293 yards and a score, while Texas also racked up 175 yards rushing and four touchdowns on the ground.
