ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Quincy McDuffie had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and added another 64-yard touchdown reception to help Central Florida beat East Carolina 40-20 Thursday night.
Knights' quarterback Blake Bortles threw for a touchdown and ran for another. Shawn Moffitt kicked four field goals.
UCF (3-2, 1-0 Conference USA) scored on eight consecutive possessions to seize control of the game, while its defense tightened and allowed only a field goal after halftime.
The Pirates (3-3, 2-1) led 14-0 early, but lost an opportunity to take control of C-USA's East Division with a favorable schedule the rest of the season against several teams in the league's bottom tier.
Quarterback Shane Carden had a rushing score and 76-yard touchdown pass, but threw an interception and was sacked twice.
