UCF is looking to string together back-to-back undefeated seasons, but they’ll have to do so without their starting quarterback the rest of the way.
McKenzie Milton was carted off the field after suffering a gruesome leg injury during the second quarter of Friday’s against USF.
Milton suffered the injury while scrambling to attempt to pick up a first down on third-and-7 during the 2nd quarter, taking a huge blow to his knee from a South Florida defender.

Teammates gathered around and prayed in solidarity as Milton was loaded onto a stretcher headed for the locker room and eventually the hospital.

Even USF players paid their respects.
It may be rivalry week but UCF and USF are coming together to rally around Central Florida QB McKenzie Milton after he suffered a gruesome knee injury in the second quarter. https://t.co/d8QJqEwNvm
