With the win Central Florida will get a chance to play in one of the New Year's Six bowl games which feature the champions of the Power 5 Conferences not in the College Football Playoff and several at-large bids. 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.

Central Florida head coach Scott Frost has accepted an offer to become the next head coach at Nebraska, according to multiple reports. Mistakes almost doomed the Knights, but they outlasted Memphis in a thriller that was much closer than the teams' first meeting - a 40-13 UCF win in September. Defense was optional, but two teams that entered the game ranked No. 1 and No. 2 nationally in scoring more than lived up to the billing.

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. The Knights had 603 total yards in their September win over the Tigers.

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. Memphis advanced down to the UCF 5-yard line on a fourth-down completion from Riley Ferguson to Anthony Miller.

When Memphis took a 31-24 lead into the locker room at halftime, it looked like the ideal season might be in jeopardy. It converted a third-and-14 after a delay of game with a 36-yard Darrell Henderson run, but it stalled and missed a field goal. Ferguson hit Miller for a TD.

Frost was the unanimous selection for the AAC Coach of the Year and is now a semifinalist for the George Munger Coach of the Year. UCF answered with a four-play drive for the score.
