 Mikey Keene, Fresno State, Player News

  Mikey Keene passed for 219 yards and three touchdowns and RJ Harvey rushed for 151 yards and a score to lead No. 25 UCF to a 35-28 win over Memphis on Saturday. UCF (7-2, 4-1 American Athletic Conference) handed Memphis (4-5, 2-4) its fourth consecutive loss, the Tigers' longest losing streak since 2013. Keene was pressed into his first start of the season after quarterback John Rhys Plumlee suffered an injury in last weekend's upset of nationally ranked Cincinnati. Plumlee sustained a possible concussion in UCF's 25-21 victory over the Bearcats. "I haven't been playing consistently for a little bit, but nonetheless we prevailed," Keene said. "I've been preparing like I was the starter, but it's always a little bit different coming out there. We had to fight through and that's what championship teams do." Keene rallied the Knights, who were held scoreless in the third quarter, by tossing two fourth-quarter touchdowns. The first was a 13-yard pass to Kobe Hudson early in the fourth quarter for a 28-21 UCF lead.

Hudson's second TD reception of the game came after the Knights stopped the Tigers on downs at the UCF 39 in the closing minutes of the third quarter. Keene added his third TD pass - and second of the quarter - with 4:58 left by finding Javon Baker on a perfect strike to the left corner of the end zone for a 35-21 advantage. "Mikey stepped in and handled himself like a champ like we thought he would," said UCF coach Gus Malzahn. Malzahn said Plumlee, an Ole Miss transfer, could have played, but hadn't practiced much until late in the week. "I just felt real strong that we needed to go with Mikey and give (Plumlee) a little more time," Malzahn said. "It was just a gut instinct." Keene, who completed 22 of 28 passes, was aided by a UCF defense that ranks No. 1 nationally in red zone defense. The Knights held Memphis scoreless on three trips inside the UCF 10-yard line in the first half. - UCF/AP College Football

  If UCF football coach Gus Malzahn were required to choose a starting quarterback between sophomore Mikey Keene and Ole Miss transfer John Rhys Plumlee tomorrow, he'd likely have to flip a coin. "Right now it's as even as it can get," Malzahn said Thursday about the quarterback battle during AAC football media day. Malzahn reiterated his plan to wait to name a starter after the first two scrimmages of UCF's fall camp that kicks off Sunday when the players report and start practice Monday.

Malzahn, who's entering his second year at UCF after coaching at Auburn from 2013-20, shared how some quarterback battles he's handed have gone in the past. "In my experience with quarterbacks, naming [a starter], setting a date and all of that, it's really tough," he said. "Usually there's a time in fall camp that something happens where everyone on the team knows who the starting quarterback is and a lot of the times the coach doesn't even have to say anything. "So we're hoping that happens." Keene took over the starting job last season after former UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel broke his collarbone in the third week of the season. A true freshman a year ago, Keene struggled at times but got better as the season went on. After throwing 6 interceptions in his first five starts, Keene wasn't picked off once in the final five. He finished with more than 1,700 yards, completing 63% of his passes for 17 touchdowns. - Orlando Sentinel

  As a true freshman, Mike Keene found himself thrust into the role of UCF's starting quarterback four games into last season when Dillon Gabriel went down with a season-ending injury. Keene led the Knights to wins in seven of their remaining 10 games, capped with a victory over Florida in the Gasparilla Bowl. It was the perfect springboard for the Arizona product, who spent much of spring camp with eyes on returning as the starter after Gabriel's departure through the transfer portal. The addition of Ole Miss transfer John Rhys Plumlee has added a competitive element, pushing Keene throughout spring and into fall camp.

"I'm working on being in the weight room, getting some extra film work in and working on the timing with the wideouts," Keene told the Orlando Sentinel. "I've been focusing on my diet and, of course, I'm in summer school as well. Everything has been pretty honed in and I've been focused. "We'll get home for a week and then get back to it and get camp going and before we know it, the season is going to be here." Keene recently helped out former UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton, who hosted a quarterbacks camp in Orlando last weekend. Milton's presence in the football program has been appreciated by many, including the current Knights signal-caller. "It's been great for the quarterbacks and especially for me," Keene said. "To pick his brain whenever he's around and look to him as a mentor, it's been huge for me just knowing what he's done at this university." - Orlando Sentinel

  Despite losing its starting quarterback in the third game of the season, UCF would go on to win at least 9-games for the fourth time in the last five seasons. True freshman quarterback Mikey Keene returns after stepping into the starting role following the injury to starter Dillon Gabriel, but he faces a challenge from Ole Miss transfer John Rhys Plumlee. Tailbacks Isaiah Bowser and Johnny Richardson are back, giving the Knights a nice one-two punch from the backfield. The defense lost its leading tackler in linebacker Tatum Bethune but transfers KD McDaniel (Kentucky) and Lee Hunter (Auburn) should give the group a boost. Another strong season is in the cards for UCF with its most significant challenge coming in Cincinnati, which the Knights host on Oct. 29. - Orlando Sentinel

  Mikey Keene's 23-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Johnson with 5:55 remaining sent Central Florida past Tulane 14-10 on Saturday. Keene finished 19-for-25 passing (76%) for 229 yards. His first scoring pass was a 15 yarder to Ryan O'Keefe for a 7-0 lead with 2:40 left in the first quarter. Tyjae Spears' 8-yard scoring run for Tulane with 9:22 left in the third ended a nine-play, 80-yard scoring drive that took 5 1/2 minutes and knotted it at 7-all. After holding UCF (6-3, 4-2 American Athletic Conference) to a three-and-out, Merek Glover kicked a 25-yard field goal to give Tulane the lead. Michael Pratt threw for 147 yards for the Green Wave. - Central Florida/AP College Football

  Mikey Keene threw a career-best five touchdown passes and UCF rolled to a 49-7 win over Temple on Saturday. Keene was 15 of 21 for 229 yards. He threw touchdown passes that covered 13 yards to Alec Holler and 18 to Brandon Johnson in the second quarter for a 21-0 lead at the half. In the the third quarter the scoring plays covered 33 yards with Holler and 12 and 46 yards with Ryan O'Keefe.

Isaiah Bowser, who rushed for 89 yards, ran 11 yards for a score in the first quarter and Johnny Richardson had a 1-yard plunge for a fourth-quarter score. The Knights (5-3, 3-2 American Athletic Conference), who have won five straight in the series, piled up 428 yards of total offense while limiting the Owls (3-5, 1-3) to 297. Temple, which lost three fumbles, scored in the last minute when backup quarterback Justin Lynch hit Jose Barbon with a 27-yard strike. Jadan Blue had four receptions to move into second on Temple's all-time list with 168. - UCF/AP College Football
