ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Central Florida used a trio of fourth quarter touchdowns and three field goals from kicker Nick Cattoi to run past Boston College, 30-3 Saturday night.

The Knights defense was stingy against the Eagles, holding them to just 141 total yards. Boston College was only 1 of 12 on third down as quarterback Chase Rettig was sacked three times and intercepted twice.

UCF's Jeff Godfrey was active with both his hands and feet, completing 20 of 25 passes for 187 yards and rushing 13 times for 69 yards and two touchdowns. Latavius Murray carried 10 times for 72 yards and a score.

The win gives the Knights their first 2-0 start since 1998.

UCF goes on the road next week against Florida International. Boston College returns home to face Duke.
