By Billy Hull on October 23, 2018

UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton snapped a streak of 27 consecutive starts for the Knights when he was held out of Saturday’s 37-10 win over East Carolina. Milton’s absence was a shock to the ESPN crew televising the game as well as local media in Orlando.

On a Monday teleconference call, Heupel was asked if […]

The Radford Rams are inching forward one win at a time. The Rams went 2-8 this year, twice as many as they earned in 2017 following a winless season in Lon Passos‘ debut in 2016. The numbers are small, but the feat is large as the last time the Rams improved their win total for three straight years was from 2003-2005 in Fred Salanoa‘s first three years at the helm. They have never done it four years straight and it […]
