2018 AAC Championship Free Pick – Can UCF Rally After Devastating McKenznie Injury?

It hasn't been easy determining a side for my 2018 AAC Championship free pick. Memphis is a scorching hot team, and UCF has dominated this conference but just lost quarterback Milton McKenzie to a catastrophic knee injury. This game definitely deserves a deep dive. There's a bit of sentiment that Central Florida deserves a better shot at the College Football Playoffs, but there's no way that's happening. The Knights could dominate Memphis by 30 and the Selection Committee would most [...]
