Most important player down stretch for UCF

There's no sense skipping the obvious answer. The unbeaten Knights will go as far as McKenzie Milton -- whose backup is a true freshman -- guides them.

Tate leads passers with perfect game

By QBR's measure, you can't have a better game than Khalil Tate, who came out of nowhere to eviscerate Colorado with his arm and especially his legs. McKenzie Milton wasn't too far behind, while Jarrett Stidham cracked the top five for the third consecutive week. Kyle Kempt and Jonathan Banks rounded out the group.

UCF looks like the team to beat in the American and a top contender for a New Year's Six bowl spot. Scott Frost's team, 0-12 just two years ago, crushed Memphis 40-13 in Orlando. The Knights out-gained Memphis 603-382 and forced four turnovers. Expect Frost to get serious consideration for Power 5 jobs in this cycle, and not just at Nebraska if it opens.
