    6“Our football team really does focus on the daily task at hand. We focus on one week at a time. I'm really proud as I told them in locker room. They're continuing to grow together, and you know this is our first year together, but they're continuing to buy into what we're doing. We're being more detailed in how we prepare. That's allowing us to play better in all three phases out there.” — UCF head coach Josh Heupel
