Auburn on minds of Scott Frost, UCF as Peach Bowl week begins

Auburn on minds of Scott Frost, UCF as Peach Bowl week begins

UCF senior linebacker Shaquem Griffin, who was named a second-team All-American this month by the American Football Coaches Association, has gotten a lot of attention from the Tigers as they prepare for their matchup on New Year's Day. We know we are going to get their best.

UCF could have as much speed as any team as Auburn has faced this season. "Everybody's confident and we play for each other".

In an effort to stay on their regular routine, UCF players spent time in a cold tub - done to help their bodies recover faster - following their workout. We're not all the way to where we would have liked to have been as a program yet, but you can't take away from what those guys accomplished.

"Auburn hasn't seen any speed like we have here", Killins went on. He was held to 44 yards on 13 carries in the SEC Championship Game. On offense, Ryan Davis possesses standout quickness out of the slot and Darius Slayton is a burner on the outside.

UCF also hasn't yet faced a defense near as good as Auburn's, which ranks 13th nationally allowing 312.3 yards per game.

EPlus Inc. (PLUS) Holdings Increased by Bank of New York Mellon Corp
Thomas Gibbons has seen steady activity on the sell side, and on December 1, 2017, executed an option to sell 38152 shares. First Citizens Savings Bank And Com holds 0.56% in The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (NYSE:BK) or 80,467 shares.

Not only did the Knights win all 12 of their games in 2017, they also led the NCAA in scoring and are the only undefeated Division 1 team in college football.

There is good news for Auburn. We had a lot of rushing yards this year and gave up very few sacks. We'll be smart with those guys. "We've got more coaches at practice, we're practicing on the exact same as we did trying to get ready for these games, and we're game-planning at the same time". "I feel like when we're down, there's always somebody on the team that's going to pick one of us up".

"You just go have to go out there and play", Auburn freshman defensive back Jordyn Peters said.

The Tigers and Knights kickoff at 11:30 a.m.
