Freshman starting quarterback McKenzie Milton of Mililani and his Central Florida teammates are bowl eligible after Saturday’s 24-3 home victory over Cincinnati.

The Knights (6-4) are having an amazing turnaround season under first-year head coach Scott Frost, who is a former Oregon assistant. A year ago, Central Florida went 0-12.

Two seasons ago, as a junior in high school, Milton led the Trojans to the state Division I championship.
