Rumors of the 42-year-old college football coach and Nebraska-native returning home have been in the works for weeks, but Frost worked to remain loyal to his undefeated Knights at the University of Central Florida through the remainder of their regular season and a win against the Memphis Tigers Saturday in the American Athletic Conference championship game. When he initially took over the Knights in the winter of 2015, they were coming off an 0-12 season. With the victory the Knights will be the highest ranked Group of 5 team in the nation.

UCF: Two years after finishing 0-12, Scott Frost has accomplished the quickest turnaround in FBS history as the Knights are on track to get to their second New Year's Six bowl in five seasons.

UCF punted, and Memphis had a chance to play for the win. From the Memphis 9-yard line, quarterback Riley Ferguson was pressured and hit, throwing an interception and likely sending UCF to the Peach Bowl.

Memphis scored the last 17 points of the first half to grab the lead, but opened the second half with a surprise on-side kick that was unsuccessful. Miller had 14 receptions for 195 yards and three touchdowns.

Milton threw for 494 yards on 28-of-40 passing Saturday, and has thrown for 3,795 yards and 35 touchdowns on the year. He also rushed for a score. Milton found his two favorite targets, Dredrick Snelson and Tre'Quan Smith, a combined 15 times for 306 yards and four of those touchdowns. Darrell Henderson turned in a 36-yard gain for the first down, putting Memphis well in range of a field goal. UCF LB Shaquem Griffin, who had his left hand amputated at a young age, had two drive-ending sacks. Memphis S Jonathan Cook had an interception and a forced fumble.
