Scott Frost Reportedly Leaving UCF for Nebraska

Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

Central Florida wide receiver Dredrick Snelson, right, runs for yardage past Memphis defensive back Terrell Carter, center, during the first half of the American Athletic Conference championship NCAA college football game, Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, in Orlando, Fla. Bleacher Report's Lars Anderson reported on Friday that he's already begun to put together his coaching staff and is looking at houses in Lincoln.

After achieving a flawless regular season last Friday against the University of South Florida, the Knights beat the Tigers 62-55 in double overtime Saturday, winning their conference championship.

It took a long, rumor-filled week before it finally became official, but in the end, Nebraska got the man they wanted by naming Frost as its 33rd head coach. With the victory the Knights will be the highest ranked Group of 5 team in the nation.

After falling behind by 14, Memphis responded with a 66-yard Tony Pollard touchdown and a 10-yard Ferguson pass to Anthony Miller (who finished with 195 yards) to tie the game at 48 with 4:13 left.

Offense ruled the day, as the top two teams in the American Athletic Conference squared off for a shot at a New Year's Six bowl game.

Memphis totaled 753 yards and averaged 7.6 yards per play. Memphis capitalized on the turnover with a scoring drive capped by a Riley Patterson field goal that sent the Tigers into halftime with a 31-24 lead. Both teams had over 30 first downs, both teams rushed for over 200 yards and both teams passed for over 400 yards (471 for Memphis' Riley Ferguson, 494 for UCF's McKenzie Milton).

UCF punted, and Memphis had a chance to play for the win. Ferguson hit Miller for a TD. It is the Knights' third AAC crown in the past five years. With the kind of buzz surrounding Frost right now, that should not be much of a problem at Nebraska.
