UCF takes 17-0 lead behind 36-yard run

ORLANDO -- After stopping SMU on its initial drive, UCF went 85 yards capped by a 36-yard touchdown run right up the middle by redshirt sophomore running back Latavius Murray. That puts UCF up 17-0.

SMU is without linebacker Youri Yenga and cornerback Sterling Moore and it showed on that drive as UCF got some big plays and the Mustangs had trouble making tackles.

The game is past the midway point in the third quarter and SMU needs a scoring drive to try to stop UCF's momentum.
