This weeks’ Friday Night Lights showdown should be a lot of fun to watch. UCF and Cincinnati have a combined 7-2 record this season.
Beyond that, the Bearcats want to become a talking point on Social Media with their new all-black field.

There were so many great ideas for this week’s field paint, we decided to just combine them all together – and it is something special.

What The NCAAF Odds Say About The UCF Vs. Cincinnati Matchup
UCF opened -3.5 on the road at MyBookie.ag, but the betting line moved up one point and a half since then. It should stay that way until the kickoff.
64% of the betting public is taking the road team in this one.
The UCF Knights’ Edge Against Cincinnati
We all know the story. The loss against Pittsburgh two weeks ago was the first suffered by UCF during the regular season in the past three years. The Knights did bounce back by hammering Connecticut 56-21 last week.
UCF Offense Is A Powerhouse
The offense is the edge for UCF in this game. The team averages 49.0 points per game while having a well-balanced attack between passing and running the football.
Freshman QB Dillon Gabriel is the man to watch in this game. Gabriel has thrown 1338 yards, 14 TDs and just two interceptions in five outings.
The only time Gabriel suffered was against Pittsburgh as he was sacked six times in the loss. If he gets enough time, he should move the ball consistently and lead this offense to score a lot of points on Friday Night.
The Cincinnati Bearcats’ Edge Against Cincinnati
Cincinnati needs to win this game to have a fair chance at the East division inside the American Athletic Conference. A home loss would make the goal almost impossible to achieve.
Last week’s win against Marshall 52-14 was impressive. The Bearcats were -4 and just went in there and stole a victory with authority.
Bearcats Defense Crucial For Victory
The key to this game for the Bearcats is their defense. Sure they lost 42-0 to Ohio State, but who doesn’t? The Buckeyes are in another league. For Cincy, it is about beating teams with a similar talent level, like UCF.
If we take the game against Ohio State out of the equation, the Bearcats have allowed 13.6 points per game in their wins over UCLA, Miami Ohio and Marshall. Their defense needs another solid performance at home to steal this game.
UCF vs. Cincinnati Friday Night Week 6 Pick
I expect Cincinnati to stay within the game during the first half, but then the tired legs will cost them the win. UCF is a team with many options offensively. It takes a 60-minute effort to stop them.
Although it is a road game for the top of the AAC East Division, the Knights high-powered offense should earn the victory in this game. Dillon Gabriel is quite the athlete and fun to watch every weekend. UCF will win on the road by at least a touchdown difference.
