Liberty Bowl, Georgia Vs. UCF: Ronnie Weaver and Latavius Murray Provide A Sound Running Game For Knights

We know how the Georgia Bulldogs love using two running backs, as Caleb King and Washaun Ealey have been carrying the load for the last two seasons. But the Central Florida Knights have their own duo of game-changing backs in Ronnie Weaver and Latavius Murray.

Weaver really came on strong in the middle of the season which led to him leading the team in rushing with 890 yards and 11 touchdowns. His best performance came against East Carolina, rushing for 180 yards on 30 carries with two touchdowns.

In the last three games of the year, it was Murray that has been the feature back, as he has rushed for 315 yards and four touchdowns. So far this season, Murray has rushed for 533 yards on 93 carries with 10 touchdowns. That is not bad for someone who has missed three games early in the season.

And let's not forget about quarterback Jeff Godfrey who has rushed for 546 yards and nine touchdowns this year.

With those three, the Knights average 192 yards per game which ranks them 25th in all of the FBS. If the Knights want to take down the Bulldogs, those three will have to be on their game so they can keep Aaron Murray and the rest of the offense off the field.
