Junior quarterback McKenzie Milton passed for four touchdowns and rushed for two more as UCF extended its school and American Athletic Conference record winning streak to 17 games -- the nation's longest -- with a 45-14 victory over penalty-plagued Pittsburgh on Saturday in Orlando, Fla.

Milton completed 18 of 34 passes for 328 yards and rushed for 51 yards on 10 carries as the 13th-ranked Knights (4-0) also extended their scoring streak of 30-point games to 17.

Running back Adrian Killins Jr. had a big day for the Knights, scoring on a 71-yard reception early in the third quarter after he set up their first score on a 64-yard reception. Killins also rushed for 40 yards on 12 carries.

The Panthers (2-3) managed only 272 yards in total offense and hurt themselves with penalties, finishing with 11 for 125 yards.

None was bigger than a roughing-the-passer flag on cornerback Marquis Williams that nullified safety Damar Hamlin's 88-yard interception return to UCF's 3-yard line in the second quarter.

That was their eighth penalty of the first half and allowed UCF to go up 31-7 at the break on Matthew Wright's 21-yard field goal with two seconds left in the period.

UCF was penalized eight times for 71 yards.

Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett was 16-for-26 passing for 163 yards and was intercepted once. Running back Qadree Ollison was Pitt's leading rusher with 49 yards on 11 carries.

The Panthers scored on Rafael Araujo-Lopes' 86-yard punt return at the end of the first quarter and on receiver Maurice Ffrench's 58-yard reception of a shovel pass from Pickett in the fourth.

Milton was responsible for all four of UCF's first-half touchdowns, scoring on runs of 5 and 23 yards and throwing touchdown passes of 24 yards to wide receiver Gabriel Davis and 2 yards to tight end Michael Colubiale. He completed only 10 of his 22 passes in the first half but they were good for 197 yards.
