The University of Central Florida dropped four spots to No. 11 in the final AP Poll of the 2018 season after falling to LSU 32-40 in the Fiesta Bowl.

Boasting a 25-0 record that spanned two seasons, the Knights were unable to close the gap against LSU on New Year’s Day. A weakened offensive line and several missed opportunities to gain touchdowns throughout the game allowed LSU to keep the lead.


The Tiger’s, however, jumped to No. 6 in the rankings from No. 11 in the close victory.
