UCF beats Marshall 54-17, stays unbeaten in C-USA

HUNTINGTON — Latavius Murray accounted for four touchdowns, Quincy McDuffie returned two kickoff returns for scores and Blake Bortles passed for two TDs as Central Florida routed Marshall 54-17 Saturday night to stay unbeaten in Conference USA.

Murray ran for three touchdowns on 156 yards with 16 carries, while also catching two passes for 38 yards and a score. Bortles was 15 of 21 for 277 yards passing with two interceptions for the Knights (6-2, 4-0).

The Thundering Herd (3-5, 2-2) got on the board first with a field goal but, just one play after that, UCF got rolling. Quincy McDuffie returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a 7-3 lead and the Knights never looked back. They scored 27 straight points, including TD runs of 2 and 75 yards by Murray.

McDuffie wasn’t done, though, as he took the second-half kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown and a 34-10 UCF lead.
