A William Hill bettor lost a $166,250 money-line wager to win $35,000 on Central Florida in painful fashion Saturday afternoon.
The Knights led 34-28 in the final minute when Pittsburgh scored on a trick play Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi called the “Pitt Special” on fourth-and-goal with 56 seconds left.
Pittsburgh, which closed as a 10-point home underdog, held on for a 35-34 win. UCF, which led 31-21 after storming back from a 21-0 first-half deficit, suffered its first regular-season loss since 2016.
Panthers quarterback Kenny Pickett caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Aaron Matthews on the trick play that resembled the “Philly Special” made famous by the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
