With UCF trailing at halftime 17-7, Hodges executed plays in the second half that allowed the Knights to come from behind and win 23-17. Hodges completed 10-of-10 passes in the second half. A 5-for-5 effort came on UCF’s game-winning field goal drive in the fourth quarter. The quarterback rounded out the game 15-of-20 for 141 yards.
Hodges was also productive on his feet totaling 71 rushing yards on 13 carries.
Said Buffalo coach Turner Gill, “The guy (Hodges) was a great runner and he moved the chains. He kept drives going and those kinds of drives were a killer for us.”
UCF heads to East Carolina this Saturday, Sept. 26, for a key C-USA match-up against the Pirates. Kick-off is slated for 3:30 p.m.
