The Knights are 2-0 after securing wins against Boise State and Bethune-Cookman. Dillon Gabriel has powered UCF's explosive offense with 630 passing yards and six passing touchdowns. Whether the favorites can keep things going in their first road game of the year remains to be seen, though. Louisville bounced back from its Week 1 loss to Ole Miss by blowing out Eastern Kentucky. Dual-threat quarterback Malik Cunningham has had to carry the Cardinals on offense. He's tallied two passing touchdowns and tallied another four on the ground.
