UCF kicker Daniel Obarski gets in heated exchange with teammate after missing game-winner vs. Memphis


Central Florida kicker Daniel Obarski had the chance to give his Knights team the victory Saturday night against Memphis in a high-scoring American Athletic Conference showdown. But his attempt from 40 yards out with 19 seconds to go sailed wide left

As the Tigers ran the clock out on their first victory against the Knights in their last 14 tries, cameras caught a frustrated Obarski get in a heated exchange with a teammate. 

After punching what appeared to be the medical tent, Obarski seemed to take exception over something backup quarterback Quadry Jones said and he attempted to shove Jones. Cameras quickly cut away, before turning back to see the aftermath of the players being separated by their UCF teammates and coaches while more yelling (and another punch to the tent by Obarski) occurred. 

UCF led Memphis 35-14 in the third quarter, but the Tigers came roaring back to eventually take the lead at 50-49 with 1:08 to go. The Knights quickly moved down the field and into a position to win, but Obarski’s miss dropped them to 2-2 on the season.

The sophomore kicker also had an extra point blocked earlier in the game.
