Tostitos Fiesta Bowl 2014: Storm Johnson gets UCF Knights a 14-0 lead (GIF)


When the college football season started, there’s likely no one in the country that could have predicted that the UCF Knights would be playing in a BCS bowl game against the Baylor Bears. Even less people could have predicted that through a quarter of play, the Knights would be leading the country’s sixth ranked team by more than a touchdown.

But UCF running back Storm Johnson had other plans from the get-go and has used two amazing touchdowns to get the Knights a 14-0 lead over Art Briles and his high powered Baylor offense.

UCF will likely need all the points they can muster against Baylor, but so far they’ve been proving that if this game continues to be the shootout we expected, they can keep pace and even potentially out score the Bears offense. The game is young, but the lead is entirely with UCF and Storm Johnson.
