    UCF Wins First Ever National Championship!
    UCF: 66 Ohio State: 3
    There were two storylines that unfolded in this one that led to the final score being as lopsided as it was. The first was the surprising fact that true freshman and player of the game QB David Poole of UCF kept his composure and led his team to victory with both his arm and his legs, while the Heisman-finalist leader QB Cardale Jones of the Ohio State Buckeyes cracked under the pressure. Ohio State couldn’t get anything going on offense, and it wasn’t for lack of trying. They went for it on 4th down FOUR times in the FIRST HALF. The coaches were coaching to win, but their leader did not perform as they hoped. In true Flashback fashion, it was just like the Miami meltdown of the 1992 national championship against Alabama. The second storyline was the team play of UCF in the 2nd quarter. This has been a subtle theme all season long: UCF dominates the 2nd quarter. They turned a 14-0 lead at the end of the first into a 49-3 lead by halftime. Strength and conditioning coach Chuck Norris was seen running up and down the sidelines holding up two fingers at the end of the first, and UCF met the challenge.

    Coach Ninety had this to say: “It was a season none of us here at UCF will ever forget. These young men deserved every bit of it, and this great senior class deserves to be sent off with a win like this.” Heisman trophy winner Dareen Owi had a modest day, rushing for 131 yards and 2 TDs on 21 ATT. The UCF defense showed why they are ranked #1 by holding Ohio State to 252 total yards, only giving up 203 yards through the air, despite the 41 dropbacks that they faced from a Heisman finalist QB in Cardale Jones. The other standout for UCF was their other true freshman Anthony Mark, who had 135 receiving yards on the day. Between Poole and Mark, this UCF team could be even better in the years to come.

    POG: QB David Poole 14-19 253 YDS 3 TD Passing; 14 ATT 117 YDS 2 TD Rushing.

    BOBCAT OFFENSE RUNS AND THROWS OVER UAB

    The Texas State Bobcats did everything right (for the most part) against UAB. They jumped ahead 23-0 and never looked back. The Bobcats offense turned it over a total of 4 times, but by the time the (sadly) normal turnovers started, the game was already in hand. The defense played well, but gave up yards and points near the end of the game. Next up is the offseason and who knows where Coach BP will be headed. Will he stay at Texas State or will he be offered a position at a "BCS" conference school. All will be known very shortly.
