Mack, who starred at Norview High in Norfolk, broke for a 70-yard touchdown run in UCF’s 56-10 win over UCONN. With his run, Mack only sits behind Dante Culpeper for the longest touchdown run by a quarterback in school history.

In a short night, Mack also completed both of his two passing attempts for 10 yards.

Mack sat out last season, as he was redshirted.
