Blake Bortles, QB UCF, 6'4" 230

BIO - http://www.ucfknights.com/sports/m-f...es_587127.html

STATS - http://espn.go.com/college-football/.../blake-bortles

2013 Performance - http://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/f...t/individual/8

Completion % = #10, .680
Passing Efficency = #7, 167.3
Passing Yards per Completion = #14, 14.3 yds

TD to INT Ratio = 3 to 1

Still has 1 game to play, Sat @ SMU

-against Jadevon Clowney and South Carolina 9/28: Eclipsed the 300-yard mark for the second time this season and threw for a career-high 358 yards while completing 25 passes with two touchdowns through the air

-In the win at Memphis, led UCF on a game-tying drive with 2:05 to go that lasted 15 plays and 80 yards

-Trailing 35-31 at Louisville, marched his team down the field on an 11-play, 75- yard drive that was capped off by a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Godfrey with 23 seconds left

-At Temple 11/16: Bortles completed the day 27-for-38 for a career-high 403 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. With his 403 yards, Bortles jumped into fourth place on UCF's all-time passing yards list with 6,500. The 403 passing yards were the 10th most in a single game by a UCF quarterback. Bortles also added a season-high 62 rushing yards on 11 carries


Personal Note: has several games this year (4) (Memphis, Louisville, Temple, S Florida) where he delivered a 4th quarter game winning/tying score including last second TD to beat Teddy Bridgewater in Louisville. Negative, turnovers has fumbled the ball or been stripped of the ball several times while in the pocket. Has good pocket awareness

You have to be careful with some of McShay's hype, he may be directed/doing it to gen up interest in an ESPN upcoming televised game. It just so happens UCF plays Sat @ 11:00AM on ESPN. Makes you wonder, scratch your head as to why McShay is all of sudden on the band wagon.
