RECORD NIGHT

Memphis had a school-record 21-point comeback to beat UCF. It wasn’t the only record broken on a night filled with offense.

Brady White threw for 486 yards and his sixth touchdown pass with just over a minute remaining helped the Tigers beat UCF 50-49 to snap a 13-game losing streak to the Bulls.

UCF outgained Memphis 798-703 for 1,501 yards offense combined, eclipsing the American Athletic Conference record of 1,479 set by the same teams in a 2017 game.

White completed 34 of 50 passes. UCF’s Dillon Gabriel threw for 601 yards on 35-of-49 passing with five scores.

The Bulls drove to Memphis’ 22e for a chance to win, but Daniel Obarski pulled a 40-yard field-goal attempt left with 19 seconds remaining.

The Tigers’ comeback surpassed the school record of 17 points against Houston in 2017.
