The No. 18 UCF Knights didn’t the 2013 college football with much attention, but with a win tonight over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, they can come to within one game of clinching the American Athletics Conference and a berth in a BCS bowl game at season’s end.
Playing at home tonight, you can imagine all of the Knights players were fired-up for the contest and ready to take it to their opposition. That happens to be the lifeless Scarlet Knights, who’ve lost three of their past four games, and two of those were by a combined 70 points (35 to both Cincinnati Bearcats and Houston Cougars).
Knights running back William Stanback isn’t the team’s primary back, as that role is in the hands of the more elusive Storm Johnson, but Stanback is a great power-runner who can bulldoze through defenders for those tough yards.
He also knows how to hit the truck stick against Rutgers defensive back Anthony Cioffi

Stanback is one of the surprises of the season for UCF, rushing for 316 yards and five touchdowns.
