In his first career start, the hits piled up for sophomore quarterback Justin Holman.
The worst hit came in the form of the final score, where the Knights fell to No. 20 Missouri 38-10.
After taking a 14-10 deficit into halftime, and starting the second half with a strong defensive performance, a pass was tipped at the line and intercepted by Missouri defensive tackle Josh Augusta. After that interception, the flood gates opened and Missouri scored 24 straight points to put the game out of reach.
In the second half, UCF's offensive line fell apart and the hits on Holman piled up, resulting in six sacks on the Georgia native.
Holman completed 22 of 36 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown. He also threw two interceptions and fumbled twice. Sophomore tailback William Stanback returned from injury and had a two-yard receiving touchdown, and carried the ball 14 times for 30 yards.
After allowing more than 400 yards passing last week, UCF was able to limit Missouri standout quarterback Maty Mauk to just 144 yards, but the sophomore still tossed four touchdowns.
Cornerback Jacoby Glenn had his second interception of the season.
UCF returns to the field next Saturday when they host Bethune-Cookman for the home-opener.
