2015 Knights Season Preview
The 2013 season was the best in the history of the University of Central Florida Knights football team. The Knights finished the season 12-1, 8-0 in the American Athletic Conference (AAC), and defeated Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. 2013 cemented George O’Leary as one of the top coaches in the country and put the UCF Knights on the national radar. Success in 2014 will have to come without standout quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Storm Johnson, both of whom were drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. O’Leary will turn the offensive reigns over to sophomore Justin Holman, who will operate behind one of the most experienced offensive lines in the AAC. UCF’s 2014 football schedule has a number of exciting games. The season starts with a matchup against Penn State, and the Knights travel to Columbia to take on Missouri 2 weeks later. Key games for the Knights bid to repeat as AAC champions in 2014, will be October 2nd at Houston, November 14th against Tulsa, and November 22nd against SMU.
