Watch: Alec Holler’s ridiculous one-handed touchdown grab lifts UCF to AAC Championship


With 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter, UCF’s Alec Holler made a ridiculous one-handed touchdown catch, helping the Knights earn a 46-39 victory over the USF Bulls and a spot in the AAC Championship game. 

UCF held a seemingly insurmountable 31-7 lead in the third quarter Saturday, only to see USF storm back, eventually taking a 39-38 advantage with seven minutes left in the second half. 

With a spot in the conference championship game on the line, quarterback Mikey Keene orchestrated an eight-play, 82-yard drive, culminating with the 14-yard hook-up with Holler for the game-winning score. 

Keene finished 15-of-19 for 129 yards and two touchdowns, adding 17 rushing yards off three attempts. Meanwhile, Holler posted four catches for 32 yards to accompany the year’s biggest touchdown grab. 

The Knights rushing attack accounted for 345 of the team’s 547 yards of total offense on Saturday, as four players ran for 53 yards or more. John Rhys Plumlee recorded a team-high 133 yards and two touchdowns off eight carries, and RJ Harvey rushed for 74 yards and a score off 16 attempts. Meanwhile, Isaiah Bowser and wideout Ryan O’Keefe combined for 107 yards off 19 carries. 

UCF now has a date with Tulane with the AAC Championship on the line, December 3, in New Orleans. The Green Wave advance to the title game after knocking off Cincinnati, 27-24, on Saturday.
