Auburn football fans loved seeing Gus Malzahn get smoked in first UCF game

Auburn football fans had some fun at the expense of former head coach Gus Malzahn  in his first game as the UCF Knights sideline boss on Thursday.

The Auburn Tigers opted to move on from former head coach Gus Malzahn following a 6-4 season in 2020 despite his heavy contract buyout. Malzahn did not have to wait long to find a new job, as the UCF Knights football program hired him to be their new sideline boss.

Malzahn’s first game did not get off to the greatest starts, as the Knights were outplayed in the first half of their season opening game against Boise State on Thursday. Of course, Auburn fans could not help but pour salt in the wound.

Malzahn’s tenure got off to a disastrous start on the 14-play opening drive. After the Knights went all the way down to Boise State’s eight yard line, quarterback Dillon Gabriel threw an interception to cornerback Tyric LeBeauf, who returned it 100-yards for a touchdown.

UCF eventually got on the board with touchdown passes to tight end Alec Holler and wide receiver Titus Mokiao-Atimalala in the second quarter, but trailed 24-14 at halftime.

Malzahn got the last laugh, as the Knights bounced back in the second half to defeat the Broncos 36-31.
