Knights hoping to avoid Fiesta blowout

JOHN MARSHALL AP College Football Writer Published:

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Central Florida has been given little shot of beating Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl.

The 15th-ranked Knights are taking that as a challenge.

Sixth-ranked Baylor has been an unstoppable force this season, leading the nation in scoring while churning out more yards than all but one team in FBS history.

The Bears are balanced, athletic and score quickly, which is why the Fiesta Bowl was pegged as the most lopsided of the 35 bowls by the sports books.

The Knights may be 16 1-2-point underdogs, but they're not backing down from the big, bad Bears, hoping their first trip to a BCS bowl will be their breakout moment.
