MEMPHIS, Tenn. -

Latavius Murray rushed for 192 yards and two touchdowns and Blake Bortles threw for two more scores as Central Florida pulled away from mistake-prone Memphis 35-17 Saturday night.

The Knights (5-2, 3-0 Conference USA) forced three Memphis turnovers, including a fumble on the UCF 1-yard line in the first quarter.

Murray, starting for the first time since the season opener, had 23 carries and scored twice early. He followed a 1-yard run with an 83-yard romp that was the second-longest run from scrimmage in school history.

After the Tigers (1-6, 1-2) got within 14-10 on Robert Steeples' 27-yard fumble return, an interception by the Knights' A.J. Bouye set up a 61-yard UCF scoring drive.

Bouye had another big play when he recovered a fumble and ran 79 yards for a 28-10 UCF lead.

The Tigers rushed for a season-high 240 yards behind a career-best 88 yards by Jan Steib.
