The University of Central Florida has achieved the impossible – a resurrection from 0-12 to 12-0 with one season separating the two.
One-by-one the Knights dominated their opponents. A 17-home game win streak at Navy, snapped. An undefeated home game streak on homecoming at SMU, stolen. The War On I-4 and a one-way pass to the conference championship, the Knights’ for the taking, and the AAC Championship – featuring the highest-scoring conference championship of all time with the nations No. 1 and No. 2 scoring offense – with the Knights’ name in glory.
Wisconsin would fall later that Saturday to Ohio State in the Big 10 Championship game.
A dream season.
A conference-record 16 Knights on the all-conference team including Scott Frost as AAC Coach of the Year. This team had it all.
