WATCH: UCF RB believes Auburn's in for 'a rude awakening,' calls out lack of speed in SEC
This is a bold shot to take at the SEC.
UCF has certainly had a remarkable season behind an impressive offense, but this stance on the SEC is an interesting one. In a recent video interview, UCF sophomore RB Adrian Killins claimed the SEC does not have much speed.
“SEC football, they don’t have a lot of speed honestly,” said Killins.
He went on to say that Auburn really hasn’t seen the type of speed that the Tigers will when they face the Knights:
“I would say they’re in for a rude awakening,” said Killins.
Killins has had a solid season with 762 yards rushing and 10 TDs, but it will be interesting to see if he regrets his comments. Calling out the SEC is one thing. Backing up such a claim on the field is another challenge altogether.
Here is video of his comments from Shannon Green with The Orlando Sentinel:
