No. 14 Ohio State preps for big challenge from UCF

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Quarterback Blake Bortles believes that his Central Florida team has athletes to play on even terms with No. 14 Ohio State on Saturday.

The Knights beat up on Akron, 56-14. They were impressive on both sides of the ball, showing size, speed and power. But don’t be misled: Meyer’s primary worries still revolve around his own team.
