The UCF Knights put a 30-3 whoopin' on ACC legacy power Boston College on Saturday at Bright House Networks Stadium in Orlando, Fla. While the Knights outgained the Eagles 422 to 141 in total yards, the most impressive stats were put up by UCF's defense. It held the Eagles to just seven first downs, one third-down conversion and one fourth-down conversion. The Knights also held onto the ball longer, with a 37:25 time of possession compared to BC's 22:35. The Knights didn't cough up the ball once, while BC's Chase Rettig threw two interceptions.

Rettig, who threw for 375 yards and one interception in BC's season opener against Northwestern, was stifled by the Knights' defense, completing only 10 passes for 70 yards. Tailback Andre Williams racked up 59 yards on 12 carries and receiver Bobby Swigert amassed an amazing 39 yards on three receptions.

The Knights kept BC out of the end zone and its only score came on a 47-yard booming field goal by Nate Freese. It's too bad Freese isn't the Eagles' punter—could've helped their field position.

So, what's my point? Why does it matter that UCF (2-0) beat BC (0-2)?
