- Brandon Wimbush has been named the starting quarterback for the UCF Knights.
- FAMU is 1-0 all-time against UCF, having defeated the Knights 19-14 in 1987.
- Sportsbooks have UCF favored to win by 45.5 points.
ORLANDO, Fla. – While last Saturday showcased two of the biggest college football programs in the state pinned against each other, this week will present another intriguing Florida-based college football matchup.
The University of Central Florida is set to host Florida A&M in Orlando at 7:30 p.m. ET. inside Spectrum Stadium. This is only the second matchup ever between the two schools. Florida A&M holds the sole victory in the all-time series having beaten the Knights 19-14 back in 1987.
However, UCF has become a much stronger program since then. The Golden Knights went undefeated in their last two regular seasons and won 25 games straight before finally losing to LSU in the 2019 Fiesta Bowl.
Many of those victories last season came with a high-powered offense powered by McKenzie Milton under center. Although, Milton suffered a devastating knee injury against USF in the final game of the 2018 season and will not start against FAMU.
Instead, Brandon Wimbush will start at QB for the Golden Knights 2019 season opener. US online sportsbooks seem to trust that the Knights won’t miss a step and have UCF favored by 47.5 points to beat FAMU. This is a steep line, which will surely make those interested in the game want to see it in action. It makes sense though, as UCF is 11-2 SU in their last 13 Thursday matchups while FAMU is 0-10 SU in their last 10 overall.
