ATLANTA, Ga. – The No. 12 UCF Knights have taken down No. 7 Auburn 34-27 on New Year’s Day to become Peach Bowl Champions.

The Tigers offense was unable to secure a touchdown in the first half, dropping behind the Knights 6-13 by halftime with 46 yards in penalties in tow.


Auburn opened the second half with a two-play drive for a touchdown. The Knights responded in the second half with three touchdowns of their own – one on a pick-six – to break open another scoring gap.


UCF claims a perfect season with a 13-0 record and a title on a national stage taken from an SEC team who defeated an undefeated Georgia and Alabama team.

And with less than thirty seconds left, the dream season was completed. UCF intercepted Stidham’s pass to the end zone to seal the game.
