UCF RB on SEC football They don’t have a lot of speed

The UCF running back was asked how the Knights’ offense stacks up to the Auburn defense ahead of the Peach Bowl on New Year’s Day, especially when it comes to team speed. “SEC football, they don’t have a lot of speed, honestly,” Killins Jr. said.
