Backed up near his own end zone in the third quarter Friday night against Cincinnati, UCF freshman quarterback Dillon Gabriel committed a monumental mistake.
Telegraphing his throw from the outset, he threw a ghastly pick-six, which was taken back 16 yards for the score by true freshman Ahmad Gardner.
This stunning development gave the Bearcats a 20-16 lead over the No. 18 team in the nation. It’s been a rough game for UCF’s offense, though it did produce one of the most jaw-dropping highlights we’ve seen all season.
