The UCF Knights already had a lead over the LSU Tigers in the first quarter of the Fiesta Bowl when Brandon Moore took Joe Burrow to the house on a pick-six.
On the play, Joey Connors absolutely laid out Burrow on a block, too, adding insult to injury.

After review, Connors was deemed to have issued a legal hit and was not ejected for targeting, sending LSU head coach Ed Orgeron on a sideline rampage.
Talk about an eventful play. Suddenly, UCF has a 14-3 lead over LSU in the Fiesta Bowl, and based on the way this has gone so far this might turn into a blowout.
