Media Services Covering UCF Interview Policy UCF student-athletes and coaches will be available to the media during the season, but all interviews must be coordinated through the UCF Athletics Communications Office.

UCF Athletics Communications

Please do not attempt to contact players, coaches or other team personnel directly by any means of communication, including personal phone numbers, email addresses and social networking accounts. During the regular season, student-athlete interviews are permitted on Tuesday and Wednesday during a Saturday game week as arranged through the athletics communications office unless practice has been closed by the head coach. Interview requests with assistant coaches must be submitted to UCF Athletics Communications for approval from head coach George O’Leary. Head Coach George O’Leary Head coach George O’Leary will be available for interviews during the season following practice on Wednesday and Thursday. The ideal interview window for O’Leary is each Monday as UCF holds a weekly press conference at Bright House Networks Stadium. The press conference begins at 1 p.m. and also includes a pair of players each week. Fall Preseason UCF football preseason practices prior to the start of fall semester classes are open to the media and interviews will be permitted afterward unless practice is closed by the head coach. Starting with the first day of fall semester classes, UCF football preseason practices will be closed unless opened by the head coach. A designated list of players available for interviews can be obtained through UCF Athletics Communications. Fall Regular Season Beginning on the first day of the fall semester and continuing throughout the season, the first five segments (approximately 20-25 minutes) of practice will be open to the media on Tuesday and Wednesday only. Practice is closed to the media on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Practice can be closed at the discretion of the head coach. Practice times are subject to change. Filming at Practice On Tuesday and Wednesday during a Saturday game week, video and photo access is available during individual drills at the beginning of practice up to period five (approximately 20-25 minutes). No filming is permitted during team work.

Compliance Information The UCF football program is on probation until Feb. 9, 2017, for NCAA violations involving the impermissible recruiting activity of outside third parties, impermissible benefits to prospective student-athletes, an impermissible recruiting inducement, unethical conduct, failure to monitor and lack of institutional control. The penalties include: public reprimand and censure; five years of probation through Feb. 9, 2017; limit of 20 initial scholarships per year and 80 total scholarships each year for three years; two less coaches permitted to recruit off-campus at any one time for two years; reduction in the available number of recruiting evaluation days for two years; reduction in the number of paid official visits for prospects for two years. In response to the infractions, the institution has increased its compliance staff, as well as its compliance educational and monitoring efforts. A greater emphasis has been placed on educating coaches, staff and fans on the rules and regulations concerning representatives of athletics interests and third party representatives. UCF has instituted the use of compliance and recruiting software for all athletics programs. In addition, the compliance office now shares a dual-reporting structure to the Vice President and Director of Athletics and the University’s Chief Compliance and Ethics Officer. UCF will continue its efforts of promoting a culture of compliance throughout the university and becoming a national model for athletics compliance.

American Athletic Conference N

ot entirely unlike the nation that provides its namesake, the American Athletic Conference was born from an ideal in which members with ambitious goals are provided with the means to succeed in their quests for excellence. With roots that extend to three conferences, the American Athletic Conference membership in 2013 – its debut season – consists of 10 institutions: the University of Central Florida, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Connecticut, the University of Houston, the University of Louisville, the University of Memphis, Rutgers University, Southern Methodist University, the University of South Florida and Temple University. In 2014-15, East Carolina University, Tulane University and the University of Tulsa come aboard. The 201516 season sees the U.S. Naval Academy join the ranks in football only. The American, which operated as the Big East Conference from 1979 to 2013, will immediately take a place at the forefront of Division I athletics, with schools that have played in a combined five Bowl Championship Series games, won four NCAA men’s basketball titles since 1999, and won eight NCAA women’s basketball championships since 1995. Among the league’s 2013 members, seven of The American’s 10 football teams have been ranked in the top 13 in the BCS since 2006. Eight of the 10 teams have been in the BCS top 25 in that span. The 2013-14 membership will also include the most recent NCAA men’s basketball (Louisville) and women’s basketball (UConn) champions. The 2013 season will mark the final year of a six-year arrangement with ESPN that gives The American national exposure on ABC television and the ESPN family of networks. ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC will carry a minimum of 19 American home football games each season. Championship Week in December includes three American games on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. At least four American games are featured on ESPN’s Thursday-night package. In addition, ESPN Regional Television will continue to produce and distribute its Game of the Week package to a nationally syndicated audience, reaching more than 30 million homes. Most of these games

also will be available as part of the ESPN GamePlan subscription service. Finally, a minimum of five home games will be carried on ESPNU. Following the 2013 football season, the American Athletic Conference enters new television partnerships with ESPN and CBS Sports which will give the conference unprecedented national exposure. The football portion of the contract, which begins in the 2014 season, calls for nearly 90 percent of conference-controlled games on national broadcast or national cable platforms. The first American Athletic Conference Football Championship, which will be played in 2015, will be carried either on ABC or ESPN on Championship Saturday. In men’s basketball, the new television deal calls for all conference-controlled games to be televised, with more than 63 percent slotted for national broadcast or national cable – a minimum of 107 games. The entire postseason tournament will be televised, including the championship game, which will be either on ABC or ESPN. Sixty percent of the American’s women’s basketball games will be carried on either national cable, regional sports networks or ESPN3. American Athletic Conference teams will have access to the pinnacle of college football’s postseason structure, both in the coming season and beyond. In 2013-14, the league champion will receive an automatic bid for the final edition of the Bowl Championship Series, including a spot in the VIZIO National Championship Game if it is ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings. Moving forward, The American champion would be chosen for the College Football Playoff semifinals if it is among the top four teams following the regular season. Otherwise, the league would place its champion in either the Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl or Peach Bowl if it is ranked higher than the champions of Conference USA, the Mid-American Conference, the Mountain West Conference and the Sun Belt Conference. The American has additional partnerships with a number of bowl games that match conference teams against opponents from the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Big 12 Conference, the Southeastern Conference and Conference USA.

The Russell Athletic Bowl has the first selection of American teams after the conference’s BCS representative is determined. The Atlantic Coast Conference will provide the opposition for the Russell Athletic Bowl, which is played in Orlando, Fla. The American also is a partner with the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, N.C. Played in Bank of America Stadium, the Belk Bowl will select its American Athletic Conference participant after the Russell Athletic Bowl with the ACC again providing the opponent. The American and the Big 12 conferences partner for the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium in New York City. In the event that the Big 12 is unable to send an eligible team to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Notre Dame could step in as the American team’s opponent. An American representative will face either an opponent from the Southeastern Conference or the Conference USA champion as part of arrangements with the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis. The league also holds a partnership with the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl pairs the American representative against an opponent from Conference USA. The postseason lineup gives American Athletic Conference teams access to at least six postseason games. The American Athletic Conference administers to its membership from a state-of-the-art office located in Providence, R.I. The location of the conference headquarters – just steps from the city’s Amtrak station and 10 minutes from T.F. Green International Airport – gives the conference easy access to its member schools. The conference headquarters is equipped with a complete video production studio and small- and large-scale meeting rooms to accommodate the many coaches’ and administrators’ meetings held onsite each year.

University of Central Florida Take a close look at the dynamic University of Central Florida, the nation’s second-largest university located in one of the most popular cities in the world. UCF offers degrees through its 12 colleges: College of Arts and Humanities College of Business Administration College of Education and Human Performance College of Engineering and Computer Science College of Graduate Studies College of Health and Public Affairs College of Medicine College of Nursing College of Optics and Photonics College of Sciences Rosen College of Hospitality Management The Burnett Honors College

UCF offers more than 200 degree programs and is an academic and research leader in many fields, such as engineering and computer science, education, digital media, hospitality management, health care, modeling and simulation, and the sciences. The university, home to nearly 60,000 students, celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 10, 2013. The main campus is in east Orlando, while students also attend classes at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management in the midst of the region’s top tourist attractions, the College of Medicine at the burgeoning medical city near the Orlando International Airport, the downtown Center for Emerging Media, and 10 regional campuses throughout Central Florida. Access, Quality and Diversity The academic accomplishments of each new freshman class continue to set records as the university’s enrollment grows and becomes more diverse. Academic recognitions are regularly bestowed on the university. UCF has been named one of the nation’s top five up-and-coming universities by U.S. News & World Report, and Kiplinger magazine and The Princeton Review consistently recognize a UCF education as one of the best values in the country. UCF also was named one of the nation’s five “Next Generation Universities” by the New America Foundation. The 2013 report praised UCF for increasing access to students and achieving higher graduation rates in a cost-effective manner and also for emphasizing partnerships as a way to grow. UCF ranked 31st in the nation for the most National Merit Scholars enrolled in 2012-13, and Hispanic Out-

look magazine has named UCF one of the top 10 institutions in the country for Hispanic undergraduate students. More than 220,000 alumni have earned degrees from UCF’s 12 colleges. Prominent alumni include Julia A. Pierson, director of the U.S. Secret Service; George Kalogridis, president of the Walt Disney World Resort; Alan Eustace, a senior vice president with Google; and Nicole Stott, a NASA astronaut. Modern Amenities From technology to the performing arts, and career services to campus housing, UCF’s new facilities enhance learning and student life. At Technology Commons, students can test and purchase the latest computer products and produce podcasts and video presentations. A new Performing Arts Center provides music and theatre students with high-tech classrooms and rehearsal spaces, and eventually will host student and professional performances. Knights Plaza is a bustling campus complex that includes the 10,000-seat CFE Arena for basketball and other entertainment, apartment-style housing for 2,000 students, retail shops, restaurants and Bright House Networks Stadium, with its more than 45,000 seats. UCF’s popular Academic Village residence halls were expanded to add space for an additional 650 students this fall, and a new Fraternity and Sorority Life building provides gathering places for the university’s 47 fraternities and sororities.

The 149,000-square-foot Recreation and Wellness Center features a three-story climbing wall, an indoor track, and fitness equipment. The campus Health Center includes a full-service clinic with on-site professionals, X-ray capabilities, dental services, pharmacy, medical laboratory, and physical-therapy services. Looking at the Future The beginning of UCF’s second 50 years is an exciting time for the university. With a $55 million NASA grant, the largest award in the university’s history, UCF researchers are building and launching into space an instrument that will provide unprecedented imagery of the Earth’s upper atmosphere. The Medical City at Lake Nona, a cluster of bio-medical facilities anchored by the UCF College of Medicine, is well on its way to generating the projected $7.6 billion in annual economic impact and up to 30,000 jobs by the end of 2017. The UCF Knights will begin play this year in the new American Athletic Conference, which includes the University of Connecticut, Cincinnati and rival University of South Florida. The university will continue its commitment to sustainability and looking ahead to protect the environment. Nearly a third of the 1,415-acre main campus is conservation land. Students support sustainability through initiatives such as an oncampus recycling programs and an annual energysaving competition between residence halls. Explore all of UCF at www.ucf.edu.

Nicholson Fieldhouse E

nhancing the UCF Football experience is Nicholson Fieldhouse, the first indoor practice facility of any of Florida’s Division I football programs. Completed in June of 2005 and located behind the state-of-the-art Wayne Densch Sports Center, the fieldhouse features a 120-yard regulation FieldTurf playing surface and is climate controlled by a series of industrial-size air conditioning fans located at both the north and south endzones. Also used by other varsity sport programs, the facility is ideal during times of inclement weather and heat. The facility would not have been if not for the assistance of Tony and Sonja Nicholson, longtime supporters of academics and athletics

at UCF, who donated in excess of $2 million for the construction of the fieldhouse, which was named in their honor. Centex Rooney Construction Co. Inc. began building the $4.3 million field house in August of 2004, and the facility was up and ready for use by the spring. “The entire UCF community, especially our student-athletes and communications students, continues to benefit from the generous support of Tony and Sonja Nicholson,” UCF President John Hitt said. “The fieldhouse (allows) our athletes to practice in all types of weather and should give our teams a competitive advantage.”

Tony Nicholson owns several companies in Central Florida and has developed about 3,000 homes and 10,000 lots in the region since 1995. An entrepreneur since 1962, he moved in 1967 to Central Florida, where he has founded a magazine, a radio station and a company that produced concerts and videos. Tony Nicholson is a member of the boards of directors of the UCF Athletics Association Inc. and the UCF Foundation Inc. Sonja Nicholson is a past member of the Golden Knights Club Board of Directors. The Nicholsons made a $2 million commitment in 1996 to help fund the Nicholson School of Communication, which is named in their honor. The couple are longtime annual contributors to UCF athletics and consistently rank as Diamond Knights, the highest level for annual giving. A donation from the couple also helped to pay the university’s entry fee into the Mid-American Conference for football in 2002. The Nicholsons also made a $100,000 commitment in 1999 toward the Wayne Densch Sports Center. In addition, a football practice field is named in their honor.

UCF’s Academic Success T

he Knights delivered a 10-4 record, a Conference USA East Division title, a victory in the Beef `O’ Brady’s Bowl and the seniors went out as the winningest senior class in school history. But what was even more impressive was the Knights tackling their academics in 2012-13.

Fall 2012

-3.095 team GPA - highest for a fall term under Head Coach George O’Leary, who took over the program in 2004 -67 players with a 3.0 GPA or above, which included seven Knights who had a 4.0, marking the highest amount for a fall term since 200405 -Lyle Dankenbring was a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy which honors the nation’s best football scholar-athlete, and he also was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Second Team -Ray Shipman received a spot on the C-USA AllAcademic Team

Spring 2013

-2.954 team GPA - highest for a spring term under Coach O’Leary -54 players with a 3.0 or above, which included three Knights who had a 4.0, marking the second-highest amount for a spring term since 2004-05 -10 student-athletes graduated, which included one from grad school -Three former student-athletes came back to graduate

Fall & Spring 2012-13

-Average GPA was a 3.024 - highest average for two consecutive terms since 2004-05 (Last July, UCF received the C-USA Sport Academic Award for having the highest team GPA of all 12 C-USA football programs)

Following their time in Black and Gold uniforms, Dankenbring, Shipman and Troy Davis were named to the 2013 National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society, which is comprised of college football players from all divisions who each maintained a 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college career. They also have to be a starter or a significant substitute in one’s last year of eligibility. UCF was one of 22 FBS programs to have at least three student-athletes named to the NFF Hampshire Honor Society.

Academic Progress Rate

-In June 2013, the latest Academic Progress Rate report was released by the NCAA, and not surprisingly UCF football ranked among the best programs in the nation. -With their multi-year average improving to 975, the Knights ranked 15th among all FBS programs, while also placing ninth among public universities. -The 975 average was 26 points above the national average. -UCF’s APR was the highest among public institutions in the state of Florida.

CF has produced a countless number of standout wide receivers over the years. That list includes NFL Draft picks Brandon Marshall, Mike Sims-Walker, Doug Gabriel, Charles Lee, Shawn Jefferson, Bernard Ford and Ted Wilson, while Sean Beckton and David Rhodes are in the UCF Athletics Hall of Fame. With five of their top six wideouts back, the Knights may have one of their best receiving corps in school history. And they are only getting better. After 41 receptions, 531 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman, J.J. Worton produced a team-high 44 catches with 594 yards and five scores a year ago. In his first season as a wide receiver, Jeff Godfrey’s junior

campaign witnessed him hauling in 39 passes with three touchdowns. The versatile Godfrey also had 12 rushes for 71 yards and a pair of touchdown passes. For his career, he has 20 touchdowns in the air, 19 on the ground and three receiving, making Godfrey a constant threat on the field. Junior Rannell Hall only had four catches in 2011, and broke out in 2012. Along with Godfrey, Hall was one of two Knights to have a reception in all 14 games, and went on to lead the way with 631 receiving yards on 35 catches with four touchdowns. Joining the junior class, Josh Reese has a combined 41 receptions for 583 yards and two scores in his career. Breshad Perriman opened eyes quickly but got off to a slow start

as a true freshman, bringing in just one catch in his first three games. Perriman then went on a tear, finishing with 26 receptions for 388 yards and three touchdowns. Following 2012, Perriman earned C-USA All-Freshman Team honors, while Hall picked up All-CUSA Honorable Mention status. Overall, 83.3 percent of receptions by wide receivers return for 2013. That does not include redshirt freshman Taylor Oldham and sophomore Jacques Mackeroy, who all picked up a lot of reps in spring ball. With so much experience at the position, it was no surprise the Knights did not add a wideout in their recruiting class.

Drawing the Line

B

lake Bortles and Latavius Murray may have received plenty of praise in 2012, and rightfully so as the duo led a UCF offense which produced numbers similar to the historic 2007 campaign. However, it was the offensive line that sparked the Knights all season long. Brent Key’s group helped UCF’s quarterbacks combine for 28 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. The seven picks tied a school record for fewest interceptions in a season as well. UCF’s rushing numbers also opened eyes. The Black and Gold had its fourth-highest yards (2,545) and fourth-most touchdowns (33). When it was all said and done, UCF racked up 496 points for a 35.4 average per game. It fell just six points shy of tying 2007 for the most points scored in a single season.

Beginning in the middle, Jordan Rae started 39 games as a Knight en route to being voted as the AllC-USA First Team center in 2012. He may be a huge loss, yet Joey Grant will look to become another defensive lineman to take the reins up front. Grant, a sophomore out of Apopka, switched to center for the spring and quickly won over the coaching staff with his control of the huddle and knowledge of the playbook. Grant will be seeing double on both sides, where senior identical twins Jordan and Justin McCray return at left guard and right guard, respectively. The McCrays started all 14 games, including Justin making the first seven starts at right tackle before moving over to guard. Jordan, meanwhile, opened the campaign at right guard until ending up on the left side. Jordan may have been recognized as an All-C-USA Honorable Mention choice, but both McCrays are once

again set to be a dominant duo for Bortles. Filling out the right portion of the line, senior Chris Martin opened 2012 as a tight end and even caught the Knights’ first touchdown of the season in the win at Akron. He ultimately made the move back to tackle for the final 10 contests, and has 13-career starts on the line. Opposite Martin will be AllC-USA Second Team member Torrian Wilson at left tackle. The junior, who was on the C-USA All-Freshman Team in 2011, has started 15 consecutive outings and has plenty of potential to protect Bortles’ blind side for another two years at UCF. Filling out the two-deep last year were Michael Campbell, Tarik Cook and Kelly Davison, and they all continued to develop in the spring.

Plenty of Options

T

wo positions UCF has not had to worry about for quite some time are fullback and H-back. That changes in 2013. Billy Giovanetti appeared in double-digit games every year from 2009-12, serving as an extremely reliable fullback, while also leading special teams units. He ended his stay in Orlando with 21 receptions highlighted by a career-high two touchdown receptions in 2012. At H-back, Brendan Kelly duplicated Giovanetti, making his presence known in 50 games in Black and Gold during that same time frame. And Dontravius Floyd started nine games his final two seasons. The trio assisted UCF in improving its total offense per game every year, capped off by a 407.4 average in 2012. The Knights also delivered at least 440 points

twice in the last two years, and a school-record 301 first downs when they were seniors. Moving forward, attention will be placed on the H-backs, and one player who moved up the depth chart in the spring was Kevin Miller. Miller is part of a group that consists of Cal Bloom and Blake Davis which will back up Justin Tukes at tight end. Miller, though, received plenty of praise throughout spring camp from the UCF coaches, and has one more year of experience than Bloom and Davis (who were true freshmen in 2012) as he will enter 2013 as a redshirt sophomore. Over at fullback, freshman Mario Mathis was ranked a top-50 linebacker in high school, but did play at tight end and running back as well. He could be a valuable asset depending on how quickly he learns the playbook.

As for Tukes, he was an All-C-USA Honorable Mention choice a year ago, totaling 10 catches for 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns. One of his best moments came in Columbus where he pulled in a 1-yard touchdown pass to pull even with Ohio State in the second quarter. His size and blocking ability generated huge holes for the running game, which averaged 181.8 yards on the ground. If competition for the starting job were to build up, Tukes is not a stranger to a challenge. In 2012, Chris Martin switched over from the offensive line and ultimately started two contests at tight end, including catching the first UCF touchdown of the season against Akron. But Martin moved back to the line, giving Tukes the starting role the rest of 2012.

Bortles Kombat

T

he 2011 season was definitely a sign of things to come, yet no one knew just how productive Blake Bortles would be since he had never started a collegiate game. Then the Oviedo native went 13-for-16 with three touchdowns in the 2012 opener at Akron, a 5614 win. He commanded the field week in and week out, ultimately being the All-C-USA Second-Team quarterback and the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl MVP. Bortles jumped into the record book as well, becoming the first Knight since 2002 to throw for at least 3,000 yards (3,059), while ranking fourth in a single-season with 251 completions and fifth with 25 touchdowns. Even more astounding, Bortles threw only seven interceptions, falling just shy of breaking Daunte Culpepper’s interception-to-

attempt ratio record (.0174 to .0175). Rarely a threat to beat a defense with his legs, Bortles changed that midway through 2012, galloping for eight touchdowns on the year. In his final two contests, he rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns on 20 attempts. Now a junior, Bortles received preseason recognition with a spot on the Maxwell Award Watch List, which is handed out to college football’s player of the year at the end of the season. He also has a pair of streaks he hopes to continue. Bortles ended 2012 by throwing a touchdown pass in eight-straight games, and also owns the school record by not throwing an interception in 174-consecutive pass attempts. His last pick occurred on Oct. 27 at Marshall, a game in which he went 15-for-21 en route to a 54-17 win.

Not only does UCF have Bortles leading the offense, it has an exceptional group of quarterbacks behind him. Tyler Gabbert also will be a junior and got in seven games as a Knight after transferring from Missouri. Entering the mix in the spring were two true freshmen early enrollees. Justin Holman demonstrated a lot of arm strength, highlighted by the Spring Game where he went 9-for-12 with 110 yards and two touchdowns. Conversely, Pete DiNovo (6-foot2) stands two inches shorter than Holman but brings in impressive credentials. The Tarpon Springs native was the 2012 class 8A allstate first-team quarterback, and broke Shaun King’s Pinellas County career passing record with 6,733 yards as well as 59 touchdowns.

A Storm Brewing?

U

CF began 2012 with a group of three running backs who all were looking to win the role as the No. 1 back. In the end, it was Latavius Murray who broke free. Murray’s ability to secure the ball and push forward for every yard he could get, as well as a knack for having great hands as a receiver, helped lead him to be a sixth-round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders. Murray lost only one fumble in his collegiate career, and put the ball on the ground three times overall in 453 carries. He was on the 2012 All-C-USA First Team, and wrapped up his days at UCF ranked second in total touchdowns and sixth in rushing yards. UCF had another senior on its roster who had a standout career as well. Brynn Harvey, along with Murray, finished fifth and sixth, respectively, all-time in rushing

yards, highlighted by a 2009 campaign where Harvey racked up 1,109 yards. Replacing two backs who combined for 4,875 rushing yards usually would not be an easy task. Yet for the Knights, they have a strong group of contenders. Storm Johnson sat out 2011 due to transfer rules before starting five games as a sophomore, rushing for 507 yards and four touchdowns. He had two games of more than 90 rushing yards, and capped off the year with 50 yards on only six carries in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. While he did not see as much time in the backfield as Johnson, sophomore Cedric Thompson provided a perfect challenge for Johnson in the spring. Thompson averaged 4.8 yards per carry (1362), and similar to the tight-end position, having multiple Knights

able to start will allow competition to heat up as the temperatures continue to rise throughout the Florida summer. Both backs were able to learn from two talented seniors every day, but they will soon be the teachers to three impressive newcomers. Hailing from three different states, Micah Reed (Florida), William Stanback (New York) and Dontravious Wilson (Georgia) all signed with the Knights. Wilson and Reed have credentials which include three-star rankings by ESPN and being listed as the No. 68 and No. 79 running backs in the nation, respectively. Meanwhile, Stanback set his high school’s career rushingyards record, and also played quarterback, safety and linebacker. He rushed for 1,350 yards and threw for 358 yards as a senior.

Clayton in Charge

F

ree safety Kemal Ishmael, the C-USA Defensive Player of the Year, and cornerback A.J. Bouye were staples in the UCF secondary and two of the most reliable players in 2012. Now they have both moved on as they aim to have lengthy professional careers. But thankfully juniors Clayton Geathers and Brandon Alexander return to serve as this year’s anchors. Geathers has started 26-straight games at strong safety, producing a 2012 campaign in which he boasted 117 tackles and five break-ups. For Alexander, his work as the boundary cornerback yielded 62 tackles, an interception and a team-high nine break-ups. So how do the Knights tackle the challenge of filling the other 50% of their secondary?

Two of the answers may rest in the redshirt freshmen and sophomores, as well as the recruiting class. Entering the summer, converted wide receiver and redshirt freshman Drico Johnson along with sophomore Nicco Whigham are slated to get most of the reps at free safety. At the field cornerback spot, redshirt freshman Jacoby Glenn returns and could jump in right away as a starter, while redshirt freshman Jeremy Davis and true freshman D.J. Killings, who enrolled early and was part of the recruiting class, also will be competing for playing time. Other returning Knights close to cracking the two-deep out of spring camp were Jared Henry, Sean Beckton, Sean Maag and Jamar McClain. When UCF brings in Shaquem

Griffin and Shaquill Griffin for the summer, things could shake up even more. Identical twins from St. Petersburg, Shaquem and Shaquill, who were both national track stars in high school, have the ability to make a run at playing time immediately. Shaquem was the No. 92 safety in the nation according to ESPN and will be tested at free safety, while Shaquill, who was rated as the No. 57 corner by Rivals, will have a chance to succeed as a boundary corner for the Knights. Not to be overlooked, Jamonte Jones signed his NLI in March and will look to jump in to contend for a cornerback position as well. With all of the freshmen defensive backs suiting up, UCF may end up having at least two in the two-deep early in the season.

The Pressure is On

W

ith Thomas Niles and Deion Green growing exponentially as redshirt freshmen, the Knights should be able to close the gaps left open by departing senior defensive ends Troy Davis and Cam Henderson, as well as Victor Gray. Davis completed his career ranked in a tie for 10th alltime with 18.5 sacks in a Black and Gold uniform. Niles amassed 5.0 sacks with 7.0 tackles for loss in 2012, and Green was voted on to the C-USA All-Freshman Team thanks to 4.0 sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss. Niles will be looked upon to be one of the starting defensive ends, while Green serves as a dynamic pass rusher who could cause opposing quarterbacks to have several issues on third down. A redshirt freshman in 2013, Luke Adams may have been one

of the surprises of spring camp, finishing up as a starting defensive end opposite Niles. Adams was selected as the Defensive Scout Team Player of the Week twice in 2012. The leader of the line will unquestionably be senior E.J. Dunston, who is coming off his first year as a full time starting defensive tackle. A product of nearby Eatonville, Dunston has at least 38 tackles and 5.0 tackles for loss in each of the past two seasons. Another Knight new to the starting formation, Demetris Anderson also was a Defensive Scout Team Player of the Week twice last year. He competed in 10 games as a true freshman for Western Michigan in 2011, highlighted by one start. He also had a sack in UCF’s Spring Game.

Calling the Plummer

T

errance Plummer quickly began grasping the role of middle linebacker as a true freshman in 2011, learning the system under the tutelage of veteran Josh Linam. One year later, Plummer delivered to the tune of 108 tackles, including 7.0 for a loss, in 12 starts. A native of Orange Park, he had four games where he had at least 10 stops, highlighted by a 15-tackle performance at Ohio State, and intercepted his first-career pass in the C-USA Championship Game. Learning the ropes from Plummer, Maurice Russell got a huge taste of the college game on the scout team as a true freshman in 2012, even being named the Defensive Scout Team Player of the Week for the Memphis game.

He is in line to be the backup MIKE linebacker for the Knights entering the summer. Plummer’s two outside linebackers, though, both were part of last year’s senior class. Jonathan Davis and Ray Shipman combined for 190 tackles and 16.0 tackles for loss, and will be difficult to replace in 2013. But the SAM linebacker will bring in plenty of experience. Troy Gray started nine games as a true freshman, and ended 2012 on a strong note as he had three tackles vs. UAB, five in the C-USA Championship Game and earned the start in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. Backing up Gray, Michael Easton has seen time both as a defensive back and a linebacker, appearing in eight games last year with three tackles.

At WILL linebacker, properly named Willie Mitchell took over that spot throughout the spring and has his sights set on drastically improving his tackle total from 2012 when he notched three. Behind Mitchell could be a battle between Domenic Spencer and Mark Rucker, who were both true freshmen in 2012. Spencer started to get some looks late in the year, appearing in three games beginning on Oct. 20. Rucker did not get into a contest, but was the Defensive Scout Team Player of the Week prior to the Southern Miss contest. From the UCF recruiting class, the Knights signed five linebackers (including Mario Mathis who is now listed as a fullback), with Jake Berman ranked as the No. 60 outside linebacker in the nation.

Always a Return Threat

I

t seems that every season lately UCF has the ability to change the outlook of a game with one simple return. The 2013 campaign should again be one of those seasons, even though UCF kick-return king Quincy McDuffie moved on following his senior campaign in which he was named the C-USA Special Teams Player of the Year. With McDuffie wrapping up his senior year by earning Sports Illustrated All-America First-Team honors, the Knights will look to Rannel Hall. A rising junior, Hall was the All-C-USA First Team kick returner as a true freshman, and ran back more kicks than McDuffie a year ago (18-17). Hall already ranks ninth alltime at UCF with 41-career kickoff returns, fifth with a 26.0 average and seventh with 1,064 yards.

Even though McDuffie was the league’s best special teams player, J.J. Worton served as the All-C-USA First Team punt returner in 2012. He ranks fifth in UCF history with 42-career returns and 416 yards, and eighth with a 9.9 average. Battling for the starting kicking duties will again be three classmates. Junior Shawn Moffitt came through with a 10-for-14 performance in 2012, and did not miss a field goal until the sixth game of the year. Sean Galvin handled 88 of the 89 kickoffs, producing 31 touchbacks in the process. Rodrigo Quirarte also makes up this year’s group of juniors who will all get looks in the kicking game. Punting was a focus in the spring, since in 2013 UCF will have its fourth-different punter in the

After Blake Clingan wrapped up his career in 2010, David Bohner had a 41.2 average with 16 inside the 20 in 2011, and Jamie Boyle netted a 40.6 average with 23 inside the 20 last season. Venturing to Orlando out of Cleveland, Tenn., Caleb Houston dressed for every game in 2012 after a senior season in high school where he averaged 42.3 yards per punt. UCF’s special teams will have the honor of learning from one of their own with Mike Buscemi entering his first year on the coaching staff. Buscemi was a long snapper for the Knights, and earned a spot on the All-C-USA Second Team in 2006 before jumping to the first team one year later.

George O’Leary Head Coach - 10th Season with the Knights In his 10th year at UCF in 2013, George O’Leary has helped the Knights achieve dozens of historic firsts including games in front of sellout crowds on campus, individual accolades for studentathletes, two conference championships, four division titles and trips to prestigious bowl games. For O’Leary, it has been business as usual. Since taking over the program in 2004, O’Leary has made sure that UCF has reached new heights. The longest-tenured coach in the American Athletic Conference, as well as the 11th in the nation, the veteran head coach has molded his program into a consistent winner on and off of the field. His hard work contributed to the construction of Bright House Networks Stadium. Interest in the program has never been higher. His student-athletes are enjoying record success in the classroom, and the Knights are winning on the football field. Before heading off to the American Athletic Conference for 2013, O’Leary and his Knights had work to do in Conference USA. And they definitely made 2012 another memorable season. UCF went on to earn its fourth East Division title and post a 10-4 record, tying for the second-most victories in a single season. It culminated in a 38-17 thumping of Ball State in the 2012 Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. Guided by the winningest senior class in school history in 2012, UCF paced C-USA with six players on the All-C-USA First Team. That included C-USA Defensive Player of the Year Kemal Ishmael and C-USA Special Teams Player of the Year Quincy McDuffie, who also would be named a Sports Illustrated First-Team All-American. Freshmen seemed to take over on the field in 2011. UCF led the league with six players voted onto the C-USA All-Freshman Team, which were the most by any team since Houston had six in 2008. Rannell Hall served as the lone freshman from any school to grab a spot on the All-C-USA First Team, as he was the first freshman kick returner in C-USA since 2002 to be voted onto the first team.

O’Leary’s Honors

• 2010 - Conference USA Coach of the Year • 2007 - Conference USA Coach of the Year • 2007 - Atlanta Touchdown Club Conference USA Coach of the Year • 2005 - Conference USA Coach of the Year • 2005 - CBSSports.com National Coach of the Year • 2005 - SportsIllustrated.com National Coach of the Year • 2005 - Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year finalist • 2005 - Paul “Bear” Bryant National Coach of the Year finalist • 2000 - Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year • 2000 - Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year • 1998 - Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year • 1998 - AFCA Region I Coach of the Year • 1998 - Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year finalist In all, 14 players received postseason honors by the league, including cornerback Josh Robinson who was voted onto the All-C-USA First Team for the secondstraight year, and wide receiver J.J. Worton who set a UCF freshman record with 41 receptions during the season. O’Leary guided the 2010 Knights to the school’s first 11-win season, the C-USA championship and an AutoZone Liberty Bowl win over Georgia. The Knights earned their first-ever national rankings in 2010, finishing the year at No. 20 in the coaches poll and O’Leary was rewarded with the C-USA Coach of the Year award as voted on by his peers for the third time in six years. The 2010 season surpassed even the 2007 year when O’Leary guided the Knights to what was then arguably the finest campaign in program history. UCF won 10 contests, claimed the C-USA championship and participated in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in front of a nationally-televised audience on ESPN. There was little suspense as to who would garner C-USA Coach of the Year honors that year either. For the Knights and their fans, 2007 was truly a year to remember. For the college football world, the season was more evidence that O’Leary has built the Knights into a powerful program. And just two years later, O’Leary and the Knights put together an impressive run at the end of the 2009 season to earn a bid to the St. Petersburg Bowl. UCF went 22

5-1 down the stretch and won six-straight C-USA contests to close out the regular season. That included the Knights’ first win in school history over a nationallyranked Football Bowl Subdivision program when they upset No. 13/12 Houston, 37-32, on Homecoming.

Helping UCF Arrive on the National Scene O’Leary has already left his stamp on the Knights’ program. When he arrived in Orlando in 2004, UCF was not a factor on the regional or national scenes.

O’Leary rebuilt the program from the ground up. He lobbied for new facilities, toured the state to gain publicity, restocked UCF with top recruits and made sure his student-athletes excelled in their studies. The growth of the program was no more evident than in 2007. UCF posted a school-record seven-game winning streak, and the conference championship was the first in program history. O’Leary helped tailback Kevin Smith post one of the most dominant single-season rushing performances. The junior rushed for 2,567 yards, good for second all-time in NCAA history, and 29 touchdowns. He became the only rusher in the state of Florida and the 12th all-time in the NCAA FBS to eclipse the 2,000-yard mark in a season. The 2008 season saw Joe Burnett also earn first-team All-America honors as he shattered the school and C-USA punt return records and graduated ranked 19th in NCAA history in career punt return yards. In 2009, Robinson was a first-team freshman All-American and Bruce Miller won the first of two consecutive C-USA Defensive Player of the Year awards. In addition to Miller, Jeff Godfrey was named the 2010 C-USA Freshman of the Year and a school record five Knights made the All-Conference USA First Team that year.

Excellence off the Field

O’Leary has reshaped the UCF program in every facet, including improved results in the classroom. The American Football Coaches Association recognized UCF football on Nov. 29, 2011, for being one of just 17 institutions for graduating at least 90 percent of its members of the freshman student-athlete class of 2004, which was UCF’s first year with O’Leary at the helm of the program. The 2012-13 campaign alone delivered numerous academic achievements. UCF’s 974 APR was 13th out of the 70 teams that qualified for a bowl, while the program received the C-USA Sport Academic Award for having the highest team GPA among all 12 C-USA football teams. The Knights also tied for third in the country for having the most players who already had their degrees (11). At the end of the spring, UCF posted its highest average GPA for two consecutive terms under O’Leary. The Knights turned in a successful effort in the classroom during 2008, as a total of 55 student-athletes recorded a GPA of least 3.0 during the fall 2008 semester. Defensive lineman Keith Shologan became the first player in school history to receive ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America First Team honors in 2007. Rocky Ross picked up Academic All-America honors in 2009, as did Lyle Dankenbring in 2012. Ross, Shologan, Sha’reff Rashad, Josh Linam and Ray Shipman have been selected to the C-USA Football All-Academic Team under O’Leary. T.J. Harnden received UCF’s highest honor, the Order of Pegasus, in 2009, becoming the second active student-athlete to be recognized. In 2008, Rashad was named to the league all-academic squad for the second-consecutive year. In 2007, he was named the UCF Male Scholar Athlete of the Year, becoming the second-straight football player to earn the honor. Rashad was twice named to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame’s Hampshire Honors Society. Offensive lineman Dan Veenstra was the award winner in 2006.

Guiding the Knights Toward Prominence

The 2006 season featured several memorable moments for the Knights as they finished their final campaign at the Florida Citrus Bowl. Wide receiver Mike Sims-

The Orlando native broke the single-season school record for receptions with 90 and hauled in 1,178 receiving yards just a year removed from an ACL injury. He earned All-C-USA First Team honors and was one of five Knights recognized for their strong play by the league office. Just one year removed from an 0-11 campaign, he guided the Knights to an historic season in 2005, capping it off with the program’s first bowl appearance. O’Leary led UCF to the fourth-best turnaround in NCAA history with a record of 8-5. The Knights went 7-1 in C-USA and claimed the league’s East Division title. The squad became just the sixth team in NCAA history to go to a bowl game a year after going winless as the Knights participated in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl. The college football world took notice of the turnaround. O’Leary was named the C-USA Coach of the Year. Both CBSSports.com and SportsIllustrated.com named him the national coach of the year. Facing an 11-game schedule with just four home games, his squad became just the fourth team in NCAA history to earn a bowl berth while playing seven road contests. More remarkably, the turnaround was made with mostly underclassmen.

Pipeline to the Pros

O’Leary has experience coaching on the professional level and, as a result, has helped several Knights move on to the NFL. Twelve Knights who played under O’Leary have been selected in the NFL Draft.

Other former Knights who played under O’Leary, including defensive lineman Paul Carrington, tailback Alex Haynes, wide receivers Jamar Newsome and Kamar Aiken, defensive tackle Leger Douzable, tight end Darcy Johnson and kicker Matt Prater, have also spent time in the NFL.

Success at Georgia Tech

O’Leary was the head coach at Georgia Tech from 1994-01 after taking over as interim head coach for the final three games of the 1994 season. During his seven-year stint in Atlanta, O’Leary guided the Yellow Jackets to a 52-33 record. The squad made five bowl appearances under O’Leary. From 1995-01, Georgia Tech recorded five winning seasons in six years. His 1998 squad won the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship and played in the Gator Bowl on New Year’s Day. O’Leary’s Georgia Tech teams won at least seven games on four occasions , including a 10-win campaign in 1998 and nine victories in 2000. The 2000 Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year, O’Leary was named the ACC Coach of the Year in 1998 and 2000. One trademark of O’Leary’s tenure as a head coach has been the quality of his coaching staffs. He has had five assistants later garner head coaching jobs: Ralph

Friedgen (Maryland), Randy Edsall (Connecticut), Ted Roof (Duke) and Bill O’Brien (Penn State) at Georgia Tech and Brian Polian (Nevada) at UCF. Both Friedgen and Edsall have led schools to BCS conference titles.

NFL Experience

Prior to coming to UCF, O’Leary served on Minnesota’s NFL coaching staff for two seasons. In 2003, he was the Vikings’ defensive coordinator. In his first season with the team in 2002, he guided the defensive line into becoming the strength of the Minnesota defense. He also served as the squad’s assistant head coach. O’Leary also served as the defensive line coach for San Diego from 1992-93. In 1992, the defense had 51 sacks as the 11-5 Chargers won the AFC West.

Moving Up the Ranks

O’Leary had the first of two stints at Georgia Tech from 1987-91. He served as the defensive coordinator/defensive line coach. The team finished 11-0-1 in 1990 and won the national championship, defeating Nebraska in the Florida Citrus Bowl. A Long Island native, O’Leary received his first coaching job at the collegiate level at Syracuse (1980-86). He coached the defensive line and was also the assistant head coach his final two seasons. He started his coaching career at the high school level. From 1968-76, he coached at Central Islip (N.Y.) High School. O’Leary was the head coach at the school from 1975-76, before taking over as the head coach at Liverpool High School. He posted a 37-8-1 record in five seasons as a prep head coach, including a perfect 10-0 campaign in 1979. O’Leary was born in Central Islip, N.Y., and attended Central Islip High School. He attended the University of New Hampshire and earned his degree in physical education. O’Leary and his wife, Sharon, have two daughters, Chris and Trish, and two sons, Tim and Marty. The O’Leary’s welcomed their first grandchild in 2006 as Tim and his wife Jennifer gave birth to a son named Tate. The couple had a second son, Cullen, in 2008 and a daughter, Maggie, in 2010.

Danny Barrett Running Backs - Third Season Danny Barrett joined the UCF coaching staff in February 2011 as the Knights’ running backs coach, and enters his third year in 2013. A former head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Barrett is one of four members of the UCF staff who has been a head coach on the professional or collegiate level joining O’Leary, offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe who led The Citadel along with the Montreal Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats and defensive coordinator Jim Fleming who led Sacred Heart from 2000-01. Mentoring Doak Walker Award Watch List member Latavius Murray, Barrett and the ground game delivered in a big way in 2012 as UCF went 10-4 and claimed the C-USA East Division as well as a win in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. The Knights had 33 rushing touchdowns, good for fourth all-time, and averaged 181.8 yards per game. Voted on to the All-C-USA First Team, Murray led C-USA with a 100.5 average and had 1,106 yards overall, marking the ninth time UCF produced a 1,000-yard back. And Murray accomplished the feat after missing 3.5 games.

12th in total offense 425.58 yards per game in 2010. Barrett came to Daytona Beach after three years as an assistant coach under Turner Gill at Buffalo, a run that reached a historical peak in 2008 when the Bulls won their first MAC championship and played in the International Bowl, UB’s first-ever bowl appearance. Following an honorable mention All-America playing career at Cincinnati, the Boynton Beach native and Lake Worth High School graduate headed north to Canada where he had remained until returning to the U.S at Buffalo. Barrett amassed 23,419 career passing yards in a 15-year CFL playing career with Calgary, Toronto, B.C. and Ottawa. Twice Barrett led his team to the Grey Cup finals coming with the 1987 Toronto Argonauts and 1991 Calgary Stampeders. After serving as the quarterbacks coach for BC and Calgary, where he mentored future NFL Pro Bowl pick Jeff Garcia, Barrett took over the reigns of Saskatchewan from 2000-06. As the Roughriders’ head coach and assistant general manager, Barrett’s teams advanced to the playoffs for five-consecutive seasons from 200206, reaching the West Division final three times.

Murray became the first player in school history to have a rushing touchdown in nine straight games when he did so in 2012. He did not lose a fumble in his final 407 carries of his career, and only fumbled three times from 2008-12. When the 2013 NFL Draft rolled around, it was no surprise that Murray heard his name called in the sixth round by the Oakland Raiders. UCF had several options on the ground in 2011, with five players rushing for at least 100 yards, and the Knights recording the fourth-most rushing touchdowns in school history with 27. Overall, the Black and Gold averaged 168.8 rushing yards a game, the third-highest average since UCF joined the FBS in 1996. In the final game of the season, team MVP Murray raced for 233 yards and two rushing touchdowns vs. UTEP. The 233 yards marked the fourth-best rushing day in school history, and went on to be a finalist for the National Running Back Performance of the Year presented by Intersport. Barrett spent the 2010 season at Bethune-Cookman where he helped the Wildcats to a 10-2 record, a share of the MEAC championship and a spot in the Football Championship Series postseason as the team’s quarterbacks coach. B-CU was second in the nation for the FCS in scoring offense at 38.17 points per game and

Sean Beckton Wide Receivers - 13th Season Overall A member of the UCF Athletics Hall of Fame, Sean Beckton is in his 13th year overall at UCF in 2013, where he served as the program’s defensive backs coach from 2009-11 before taking over the wide receivers for the 2012 season. He is in the fifth year of his third stint as an assistant coach at his alma mater.

Two of Beckton’s defensive backs, Ishmael and Robinson, were named to the AllC-USA First Team. Ishmael led the Knights with 93 total tackles and added two interceptions, while Robinson recorded 59 stops to go with two picks.

Instructing a young, yet talented, wide receiver corps in 2012, Beckton helped the Knights combine for 3,158 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns, marking the most in both categories since 2002. Sophomore J.J. Worton led the way with 44 catches, and classmate Rannell Hall had 631 yards to lift UCF to a 10-4 record, a Conference USA East Division crown and a win in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl.

Robinson was named a Freshman All-American after recording six interceptions and converted quarterback Michael Greco earned a free agent contract with the New York Giants after just one season as a safety.

Voted on to the 2012 C-USA All-Freshman Team, Breshad Perriman ranked third among true freshman in UCF history with 26 receptions, 388 yards and three touchdowns. The defensive backs once again shined in 2011 as UCF consistently ranked in the top-25 in the nation in passing defense. Cornerback Josh Robinson received a spot on the All-C-USA First Team for the second-straight season as he racked up 15 break-ups and two interceptions, and safety Kemal Ishmael led the Knights in tackles for the second year in a row with 81. Robinson went on to become UCF’s 29th NFL Draft pick since 1987 when he was taken in the third round of the 2011 draft by the Minnesota Vikings. In 2010, Beckton’s defensive backs were part of a team that enjoyed the finest season in school history. UCF went 11-3 overall, claimed the Conference USA Championship and defeated Georgia in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. The win over the Bulldogs served as the Knights’ first bowl win. UCF entered the national rankings for the first time during the campaign, and concluded the season ranked in the top 25 of both polls.

In his first year back at UCF in 2009, Beckton helped gel a secondary which featured four new starters and continued to improve over the course of the season.

From 1996-03, Beckton served as UCF’s wide receivers coach. During that time, he mentored some of the best wideouts in program history, including Siaha Burley, Doug Gabriel, Jimmy Fryzel, Brandon Marshall and Mike Sims-Walker. Gabriel, Marshall and Sims-Walker all played in the National Football League after concluding their collegiate careers. Beckton’s success with the Knights included a four-year run where the program had a receiver ranked in the top six in the nation in receptions per game each season. Before re-joining the UCF staff under George O’Leary, Beckton spent time as an assistant for the Orlando Predators in the Arena Football League. A native of Daytona Beach, Beckton was a star wide receiver for UCF from 198790. He concluded his career as the program’s career leader in receptions with 196 and receiving yardage with 2,493. Against Texas Southern as a senior, Beckton threw a touchdown pass, ran for a touchdown, caught a touchdown and also scored on a punt return. After brief stints with the Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals in the National Football League, Beckton returned to UCF in 1992-93, serving as an offensive graduate assistant coach, where he mainly worked with the Knights’ tight ends. From 1993-96, Beckton coached and taught history at Mainland High School in Daytona Beach. He helped Mainland to a pair of state championships, and in his role as a basketball coach, also helped mentor current National Basketball Association star Vince Carter. Beckton, who also played for the Predators from 1993-94, was inducted into the UCF Athletics Hall of Fame in 2000. He graduated from UCF in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies and a minor in physical education. Along with his many football accomplishments, he has also served as the physical education department chair at Mainland. Beckton and his wife, Zorana, have a son, Sean, Jr., and a daughter, Zaria. His son is entering his fourth season as a member of the Knights football team in 2013.

Mike Buscemi Tight Ends/Special Teams - First Season Mike Buscemi travels back to Orlando in 2013 following one season as a defensive graduate assistant at Pittsburgh. He first joined the UCF football program as a walk-on in 2004, and quickly evolved into one of the most reliable long snappers in school history. He snapped on punts in 2005 before being responsible for all snapping duties in 2006 and 2007. During that 2006 campaign, he was voted on to the All-Conference USA Second Team before climbing even higher to the first team in 2007.

After his collegiate career, the native of Plantation, Fla., stayed on with the Knights as an offensive graduate assistant from 2008-09. Buscemi then transitioned to North Carolina where he was a quality control assistant from 2010-11. While at Pittsburgh in 2012, Buscemi helped the Panthers rank 17th in the nation in total defense, 23rd in scoring defense, 20th in passing defense and 31st in rushing defense. Combining his playing career with his coaching experience, Buscemi has helped guide his teams to six bowl games in the last eight seasons, including three with UCF (2005 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, 2007 AutoZone Liberty Bowl, 2009 St. Petersburg Bowl). He also assisted UNC in reaching the 2010 Music City Bowl and the 2011 Independence Bowl, while Pittsburgh took part in the BBVA Compass Bowl. A graduate of Western High School in Davie, Fla., Buscemi was coached by his father Ray Buscemi (defensive coordinator) en route to all-state third-team honors. He boasts two degrees from UCF as he earned his undergraduate degree in criminal justice in December 2006 and his master’s degree in sports and fitness in May 2008. UCF now has three alumni on its coaching staff.

He spent 2012 with Southern Miss after serving on the UAB staff from 2007-11. During that tenure with the Blazers, he worked alongside Tyson Summers, who will be entering his second year as the Knights’ linebackers coach. At Southern Miss, Costantini helped Jamie Collins earn a spot on the All-C-USA First Team as he led the team with 92 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. He also forced four fumbles and broke up five passes. Costantini also guided Elliott Henigan to all-conference status at UAB following a three-year stint at Tulane. UCF’s defensive lines produced solid seasons under Costantini. The 2002 squad ranked third in the Mid-American Conference with 31 sacks, while both the 2000 and 2001 defenses placed in the top 30 in the country. In 2002, Costantini played a vital role in coaching Elton Patterson to a spot on the All-MAC First Team. Patterson, who finished his career in the top five in school history in sacks, was a seventh-round draft pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2003. Costantini also coached Josh McKibben, who was named the team’s defensive MVP and signed with the Baltimore Ravens. Prior to UCF, Costantini was the defensive line coach at UTEP from 1996-00 while serving as the strength and conditioning coach from 1995-00.

Jim Fleming Defensive Coordinator - Second Season Jim Fleming joined UCF in December 2011 as the Knights’ linebackers coach, and was named defensive coordinator in January 2012. He previously spent 2010 with the Kent State linebackers, and was Akron’s defensive coordinator from 2004-09. Entering his 27th season overall as a collegiate coach in 2013, Fleming and the defense produced a solid 2012 campaign when the Knights went 10-4, won the Conference USA East Division and added a victory in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. Four players picked up conference honors, highlighted by safety Kemal Ishmael being named the C-USA Defensive Player of the Year. Meanwhile, defensive end Troy Davis was placed on the All-C-USA First Team, cornerback A.J. Bouye grabbed a spot on the second team and lineman Deion Green was voted on to the allfreshman team. UCF ultimately went on to rank first in C-USA in scoring and pass defense, as well as second in total defense and pass efficiency defense. In the 2013 NFL Draft, Ishmael represented the Knights in the seventh round when he was selected by Atlanta, while Bouye, Davis, Cam Henderson and Ray Shipman all signed free-agent deals. Fleming’s linebackers at Kent State prospered all season long in 2010. Middle linebacker Cobrani Mixon earned a spot on the All-Mid-American Conference First Team by collecting 11.5 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles and 82 overall tackles, while All-MAC Third Team selection Dorian Wood led the Golden Flashes with 96 tackles and had 11.5 tackles for loss. And Luke Batton delivered 68 tackles at the other outside linebacker position. Fleming ventured to Kent State following six campaigns at Akron, and along with

serving as the Zips’ defensive coordinator, he also mentored the safeties. Under Fleming, the defense produced four All-MAC honorees, including the league’s second-leading tackler in freshman Brian Wagner and just the program’s second three-time All-MAC selection in Almondo Sewell. Fleming’s defenses at Akron consistently performed among the nation’s best, ranking 32nd in total defense in 2005 when the Zips claimed their first MAC Championship and bowl bid, and 31st in passing defense in 2009. Prior to Akron, Fleming spent two years (2002-03) as the defensive backs coach at North Carolina. That stint came after two seasons as the head coach of Sacred Heart where he led the Pioneers to a 21-1 record, including a perfect 11-0 mark in 2001 that earned the Sports Network’s Division I-AA mid-major national championship. During their championship run, the Pioneers ranked second in the nation in scoring, pass efficiency and turnover margin, fourth in total defense and seventh in scoring defense and passing yards allowed. Fleming was named the Northeast Conference Coach of the Year in 2000 and 2001 after Sacred Heart won only two games in the season prior to his arrival. In his first season at the school he led a turnaround from 2-9 in 1999, to 10-1 and a No. 5 national ranking in 2000. A native of New York, N.Y., Fleming also spent two years as defensive coordinator/ defensive backs coach at Villanova (1998-99) and four years (1994-97) coaching linebackers (1994) and defensive backs (1995-97) at East Carolina. His 1997 squad ranked second in Conference USA in pass defense, while in 1995, the Pirates finished 9-3 and earned a berth in the Liberty Bowl where they defeated Stanford, 19-13. That season, the ECU defense ranked seventh nationally in pass efficiency defense, producing 33 takeaways and 19 interceptions. Fleming spent the 1993 campaign as the defensive coordinator at Brown where the team went from 0-10 and last place in the Ivy League, to 4-6 and a tie for fourth place in the conference. From 1987-92, he had a successful six-year stretch at Boise State, including the final three seasons as defensive coordinator. His 1991 Broncos’ defense led the nation in rushing defense and was third in turnover margin, and led the Big Sky Conference in every statistical category. In 1990, BSU finished 10-4 and advanced to the semifinals of the Division I-AA playoffs, leading the conference in scoring defense. Fleming is a 1982 graduate of the University of the South with a degree in English. While there, he was a four-year starter in football and baseball, earning allconference honors as a tight end in 1981. Fleming began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at South Carolina in 1985. He and his wife, Leslie, have four children, Jimmy, Will, Kate and Meg. Will is currently a tight end/fullback for Akron where he posted four receptions in 2011 and two more in 2012.

Brent Key Asst. Head Coach/Offensive line - Ninth Season In his ninth campaign overall at UCF in 2013, Brent Key is in his fifth season as the program’s offensive line coach, and fourth as the recruiting coordinator. Prior to 2012, he was promoted to assistant head coach as well. Key had previously spent time as the Knights’ tight ends/special teams coordinator. He originally joined the Black and Gold prior to the 2005 season as the offensive graduate assistant coach and then as the tight ends coach in 2006. Leading the Knights in 2012, Key was selected as one of 29 national nominees for the Broyles Award, which is given out to the top assistant coach in college football. He also was the only coach in C-USA to be among the nominees. A total of three offensive linemen received C-USA honors in 2012, highlighted by All-C-USA First Team center Jordan Rae. Meanwhile, Torrian Wilson earned a spot on the second team and Jordan McCray receieved honorable-mention status. The trio helped UCF go 10-4 on the year, win the C-USA East Division and pick up a victory in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. Key’s work on the line enabled UCF to rush for 33 touchdowns, marking the fourth-most in school history. The Knights also passed for 3,158 yards with 28 touchdowns, the most in both categories since 2002, and they tied the school record for fewest interceptions thrown (seven). UCF ranked second in the league in scoring offense and third in fewest sacks allowed. UCF’s offensive line received several postseason accolades in 2011, as Nick Pieschel was voted onto the All-C-USA Second Team by the league’s coaches, Theo Goins and Rae earned spots on the honorable mention list and Wilson was named to the C-USA All-Freshman Team. That season, the line helped pave the way for 27 rushing touchdowns. Key’s offensive line was instrumental in 2010 as the Knights won 11 games and claimed the C-USA Championship after going 7-1 in league play. UCF earned a spot in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl and defeated Georgia, 10-6, to record the first bowl victory in school history. The Knights concluded the year ranked in the top 25 of both national polls. The offensive line helped UCF average 32.1 points and 374.0 yards per contest. The line was anchored by right tackle Jah Reid, who garnered a spot on the All-CUSA First Team. Reid was selected by Baltimore in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He was one of four UCF linemen who received honors from C-USA. Pieschel was an honorable mention all-league pick and twins Jordan and Justin McCray nabbed spots on the C-USA All-Freshman Team. The progress in UCF’s offensive line was quite evident in 2009 as UCF improved from 229.5 yards per game in 2008 to 340.8 in 2009, one of the five-largest jumps in the nation. Reid earned first-team All-C-USA honors for his work in 2009. While with the Knights, Key helped tight end Mike Merritt develop into a professional prospect. Merritt had 14 catches for 161 yards as a senior in 2007

and was a seventh-round selection of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2008 National Football League Draft. Merritt proved to be one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the country, helping the Knights set a program record with 3,287 rushing yards in 2007. Corey Rabazinski also had a strong campaign for the Knights in 2007. He totaled 10 catches for 66 yards with two scores. Working with Key in 2006, Rabazinski developed into one of UCF’s top receiving threats as a true freshman when he recorded 12 catches for 145 yards. During Key’s time in Orlando, the Knights have participated in four total bowl games, including the 2007 AutoZone Liberty Bowl. In 2007, UCF went 10-4 and claimed the C-USA Championship. A former standout at Georgia Tech under George O’Leary, Key was a four-year starter (1997-00) for the Yellow Jackets at right guard. During his career, he helped Georgia Tech rank in the top three in the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing all four years. Key started 44 games for the Yellow Jackets and was part of a senior class that earned four-straight bowl berths, a first for the program since the 1950s. During Key’s sophomore year in 1998, Georgia Tech went 10-2, earned a share of the ACC title and participated in the Gator Bowl. In 2000, Key was an All-ACC selection. He helped Georgia Tech rank in the top-20 nationally in total offense, passing offense and scoring offense. Key was also part of an offensive line that led the league in fewest sacks allowed with 16, including only 14 by the starting five. He earned ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors after his performance against Maryland, when he helped the Yellow Jackets record 547 yards of total offense. Following his senior season, Key played in the Rotary Gridiron Classic in Orlando. Key began his coaching career at Georgia Tech in 2001 as the offensive graduate assistant coach under O’Leary.

Tyson Summers Linebackers - Second Season Tyson Summers came to UCF as a defensive assistant coach in January 2012 and was named linebackers coach one month later. He had been on UAB’s staff since December 2006 as the Blazers’ linebackers coach and was their safeties coach and co-special teams coordinator in the final season of his tenure before accepting the job with the Knights. Leading the UCF linebackers in 2012, Summers helped mold three Knights into consistent starters en route to a C-USA East Division crown, a Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl win and a 10-4 record. Sophomore Terrance Plummer was in his first year as the Knights’ middle linebacker, and he went on to rack up 108 tackles with seven for loss. On the outsides, Ray Shipman broke out in just his second full season as he amassed 91 tackles. And previously a running back, Jonathan Davis was named the team’s Most Improved Defensive Player, and he capped off the year with 99 tackles with nine tackles for loss. In his first year working with the UAB safeties in 2011, Summers helped mentor Jamie Bender in his senior season as he led the Blazers with 119 tackles while also posting 7.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, six break-ups and four forced fumbles. Bender would be voted onto the All-C-USA Second Team for that performance. And on special teams, UAB ranked 17th in the nation by allowing just 4.71 yards per punt return, while freshman kicker Ty Long was named a 2011 Freshman All-American by Phil Steele’s College Football Preview. Summers took over UAB’s linebackers in 2007, where Joe Henderson was named to the All-C-USA Second Team. In 2008, Henderson climbed up to the first team thanks to a team-high 87 tackles as well as 12.5 tackles for loss, and went on to play for the BC Lions of the CFL from 2010-11. With a new wave of linebackers under Summers’ control in 2010, Marvin Burdette paced the Blazers with 114 tackles en route to All-C-USA Honorable Mention accolades. While Summers was with UAB, kicker Swayze Waters was an All-C-USA First Team pick in 2007 and 2008, and has appeared in NFL preseason games highlighted by a stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011. Hailing from Tifton, Ga., Summers coached the safeties at Georgia Southern in 2006 a year after serving as a graduate assistant for Georgia in 2005. That season the Bulldogs won the SEC title and earned a berth in the Sugar Bowl. Summers worked

Charlie Taaffe Offensive Coordinator/QBs - Fifth Season Charlie Taaffe is in his fifth campaign as UCF’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2013. During his UCF tenure, the Knights have won 34 total contests in just four seasons and have appeared in three bowl games including two victories. En route to a Conference USA East Division title, a win in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl and a 10-4 record, UCF experienced plenty of success on the offensive side of the ball in 2012. The Knights averaged 35.4 points per game, good for second in C-USA and fifth in UCF history. The 496 total points were just six shy of the all-time record, while it did set the school mark with 61 offensive touchdowns. On the ground, UCF rushed for 33 touchdowns which ranked fourth since the program’s inception in 1979, and Latavius Murray pounded out 1,106 yards and 15 touchdowns. It was the ninth time UCF had a 1,000-yard back, and the 15 scores were second-most in a single season. He went on to be selected by Oakland in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. In the air, the Knights had the most passing yards (3,158) and touchdowns (28) since 2002, and tied the school record for fewest interceptions with seven. Blake Bortles was selected to the All-C-USA Second Team, giving UCF its first allconference quarterback dating back to its first season in a league (MAC) in 2002. Bortles also would be voted as the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl MVP, and he finished the year by setting a school record with 174-straight attempts without throwing a pick. Along with Bortles, Murray (first team), center Jordan Rae (first team) and tackle Torrian Wilson (second team) were voted on to C-USA’s first or second teams, and receiver Breshad Perriman grabbed a spot on the C-USA All-Freshman Team. With Taaffe at the helm in 2011, UCF’s offense averaged 406.8 yards of total offense a game, which was the second-highest total for the Knights since 2002. The Black and Gold also rushed for 27 touchdowns. Led by four offensive all-conference honorees in linemen Nick Pieschel, Theo Goins and Rae as well as tight end Adam Nissley, the Knights outscored opponents 197-47 at home in 2011. Bortles, Wilson and wide receiver J.J. Worton were all voted onto the C-USA All-Freshman Team, as Worton set a UCF freshman record with 41 receptions. In 2010, Taaffe helped UCF record the top season in program history. The Knights went 11-3, claimed the C-USA Championship and defeated Georgia in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. The bowl win was the first for the Knights. UCF entered the national rankings for the first time, and finished the campaign 20th in the USA Today Coaches Poll and 21st in the Associated Press Top 25. Offensively, UCF averaged 32.1 points per game during the year, up from 26.2 in 2009. The Knights scored at least 35 points on eight occasions. Taaffe helped mentor quarterback Jeff Godfrey, who was named the C-USA Freshman of the Year and garnered freshman All-America honors. Godfrey started the final 12 games of the year and led all freshmen in the country with a 66.8 completion percentage. He was one of just three true freshman quarterbacks nationally who led his team to a bowl victory. In Taaffe’s offense, Godfrey set several UCF singleseason records, including rushing yards by a quarterback, rushing touchdowns by a freshman quarterback and passing yards by a true freshman quarterback. Taaffe’s impact on the UCF offense was instant and significant in 2009 as the Knights made one of the five largest improvements in the nation from 2008 to 2009.

The women’s soccer, women’s indoor track and field and women’s outdoor track and field programs all won league titles. Sprinter Aurieyall Scott took the 60-meter dash crown at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. The Knights’ football program won the C-USA East Division title and won a bowl game for the second time in school history.

In the classroom, UCF continued its incredible run of academic success under Stansbury’s leadership. UCF student-athletes set a school record with a 3.17 grade-point average (GPA) in the 2012-13 academic year. The Knights have now put together 11 consecutive terms with a 3.0 GPA or better, while 12 of the Knights’ 16 teams were at or above a 3.0 for the 2013 spring term. As part of Stansbury’s vision for the development of an Institute for StudentAthlete Leadership, the Knights initiated a partnership with Junior Achievement and expanded their community service initiatives beyond Central Florida with the creation of an international service program called “Knights without Borders.” The inaugural “Knights without Borders” service-learning trip to Panama saw Knight student-athletes and administrators work on maintenance and repairs at a pair of orphanages, while also teaching nutrition and wellness classes to the

Stansbury’s belief in the development of leaders through the intercollegiate experience extends beyond graduation, which led to the establishment of the young alumni leadership council and the resurrection of the Varsity Knights. These two groups focus on professional development and building a pipeline to professional opportunities and the Knight network.

During his tenure at Oregon State, Stansbury was part of the senior leadership team that led the renaissance of Oregon State athletics. The following is a snapshot of some of the program’s achievements during Stansbury’s tenure at Oregon State: -- More than half of Oregon State’s student-athletes boasted grade-point averages of 3.0 or higher. -- The Beavers’ athletics annual fund grew by 155 percent since 2003, while ticket sales increased by 80 percent. -- About $120 million in new athletics facilities were completed since 2004, and more than $40 million in facilities were on track for completion in Corvallis when Stansbury left for his new position at UCF. Prior to his time at Oregon State, Stansbury served as director of athletics at East Tennessee State University from 2000-03. He was associate director of athletics at the University of Houston from 1997-00 and worked in the athletics department at Georgia Tech from 1988-95. He also has experience in the classroom, teaching courses as an adjunct professor at Oregon State and Houston. In 1984, Stansbury received a bachelor’s of science degree in industrial management from Georgia Tech, where he was a member of the football team. He was a third-round draft choice for the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders. Stansbury later completed a master’s degree in sports administration at Georgia State University in 1993. Stansbury began his professional career as a banker in the asset-based lending division of Citizens and Southern National Bank in Atlanta before returning to Georgia Tech as the academic counselor for football in 1988. Stansbury is a native of Oakville, Ontario, Canada, and is married to the former Karen Hammond of Easley, S.C. The couple’s interest in travel led to an 18-month circumnavigation of the globe from 1995 through 1996, which included a number of adventures, including trekking the Himalaya of Nepal, tracking the Mountain Gorilla in the Congo (Zaire) and sailing the Whitsunday Islands of Australia.

• The Knights play on campus for the first time, hosting No. 6 Texas in the inaugural game at Bright House Networks Stadium in front of 45,622 fans. The Knights complete the regular season with six-straight wins en route to defeating Tulsa in the C-USA Championship Game, earning a spot in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. During the campaign, tailback Kevin Smith posts one of the finest seasons in NCAA history. He rushes for 2,567 yards, which ranks second all-time behind only Barry Sanders. Smith is the C-USA CoPlayer of the Year and becomes the first player in UCF history to earn consensus All-America honors. Head coach George O’Leary is named the C-USA Coach of the Year and DL Keith Shologan is named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America First Team. The Detroit Lions take Smith in the third round of the NFL Draft, while OL Josh Sitton (Green Bay Packers, fourth round) and TE Mike Merritt (Kansas City Chiefs, seventh round) are also selected. Shologan is picked by the Saskatchewan Roughriders with the fourth overall selection in the CFL Draft.

UCF Bowl History 2005 SHERATON HAWAI’I BOWL

Nevada UCF December 24, 2005 Aloha Stadium

49 OT 48 Honolulu, Hawai’i

HONOLULU - UCF dropped a 49-48 overtime decision to Nevada in the 2005 Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl, the first bowl game in school history. The Knights finished the season with an 8-5 record, just one year after going 0-11. The turnaround of seven games from 2004 placed UCF tied with seven other schools for the fourth-best single-season turnaround in Football Bowl Subdivision history. UCF kicker Matt Prater, who had three field goals during the game, missed the game-tying extra point wide right, giving the Wolf Pack the win. B.J. Mitchell ran for 178 yards and two touchdowns, and Robert Hubbard had 126 yards rushing and three touchdowns for the Wolf Pack (9-3), who finished with their best season since 1996 and spoiled UCF’s bowl debut. UCF’s Brandon Marshall caught a 16-yard pass for a touchdown that tied the game at 42 with 55 seconds left. The score capped a four-play, 48-yard drive that took just 37 seconds. Prater booted a 46-yard field goal with 1:32 left to draw UCF to 42-35, and the Knights recovered the onside kick with no time-outs left, setting up Marshall’s dramatic catch that sent the game into overtime. Trailing 32-28, the Wolf Pack took the lead on Hubbard’s 5-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. Nevada scored again on Rowe’s 7-yard scoring pass to Travis Branzell for a 42-32 lead with 3:18 remaining. Kevin Smith, Conference USA’s Freshman of the Year, scored on a 78-yard run, the second longest run from scrimmage in UCF history, to give the Knights a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. The run was the longest in school history by a freshman and in UCF’s 10-year Football Bowl Subdivision history. The longest run from scrimmage in UCF history was Elgin Davis’ 79-yard scoring run vs. Samford (Nov. 15, 1986). The 78-yard touchdown run by Smith was the second-longest run by a true freshman in the NCAA during the year. It also marked the longest run in Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl history.

UCF Bowl History 2007 AUTOZONE LIBERTY BOWL

UCF Mississippi State

3 10

December 29, 2007 MEMPHIS, Tenn. LIBERTY BOWL MEMORIAL STADIUM MEMPHIS, Tenn. - UCF’s memorable season came to a close in a 10-3 loss to Mississippi State in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Playing at the site Paul “Bear” Bryant’s final game 25 years ago, the Bulldogs used power running and a dominant defense to top the Knights. Anthony Dixon powered in from the one for the winning touchdown with 1:54 to go and most valuable player Derek Pegues picked off two passes in a game featuring anemic offenses and 17 punts. The Bulldogs (8-5) kept the Knights (10-4) out of the end zone and Kevin Smith from breaking the single-season rushing record. The junior finished with 119 yards, leaving him 61 shy of Barry Sanders’ mark of 2,628 yards set for Oklahoma State in 1988. “I was trying to find the holes, but they were playing faster than us,” said Smith. Dixon finished with 86 yards and became the seventh Bulldogs runner to go over 1,000 yards (1,066). But like the rest of the Bulldogs, he was ineffective much of the game. The teams were tied 3-3 at halftime, mostly due to conservative play-calling. Neither team converted a third down in the first half (0 for 16) as Mississippi State was held to 84 total yards and UCF to 79. Kyle Israel had 12 yards passing and two interceptions by halftime and Mississippi State’s Wes Carroll had 15 yards and an interception. UCF also didn’t get much help from kicker Michael Torres, who gave the Knights a 3-0 lead in the second quarter with a 45-yard field goal, but missed from 32 and 37 in the second half. “I think those missed field goals were big momentum breakers,” UCF coach George O’Leary said. “Give Mississippi State credit. They fought hard and didn’t turn the ball over. That usually means you’re going to come up with a close win like that.” Mississippi State finished with 199 total yards and Blake McAdams tied the Liberty Bowl record with 11 punts. But the Bulldogs came up with just enough big plays after Keith Fitzhugh picked off Israel’s pass at the Mississippi State 41 with 5:47 left. Carroll, pulled the series before, returned and responded with two rushes for 17 yards and two completions for 15 yards. All went for first downs and spurred a 10-play, 59-yard drive that consumed 3:53 and finally led to a touchdown. Derek Pegues, fittingly, made the final key defensive play, knocking down a fourth-down pass on UCF’s final drive. The Bulldogs held the Knights to 219 yards and forced four turnovers.

UCF Bowl History 2009 St. Petersburg Bowl

UCF Rutgers

24 45

December 19, 2009 st. petersburg, fla. tropicana field ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The St. Petersburg Bowl presented what seemed to be a perfect storm for UCF on Saturday night what with 20,000 of its fans packed inside Tropicana Field and a hot football team positioned for the first bowl victory in school history. But an avalanche of errors combined with speedy, physical opponent in Rutgers ruined what could have been a dreamy, feel-good night for UCF’s program and its hopeful fanbase. Down four points late in the second quarter, UCF allowed an interception return to sap its momentum and the Knights could never mount much of a comeback in a disappointing 45-24 loss to Rutgers in the second St. Petersburg Bowl presented by Beef `O’ Brady’s. ``As I told the players, I’m embarrassed for the football team that we didn’t go out and do a better job for the fanbase and for the football program,’’ UCF coach George O’Leary said. ``I thought we beat ourselves a lot in a lot of situations out there,’’ a frustrated O’Leary continued. ``Right now, Rutgers defense was just a lot better than our offense and that was the difference in the game.’’ UCF (8-5) had hoped that the momentum of a strong finish to the regular season, one in which it won the final six conference games and knocked off Marshall, Houston and UAB down the stretch, would carry over to the bowl game. But problems on both sides of the ball sabotaged the Knights’ chances of pulling off the upset in this game. Playing before roughly 20,000 Knights fans among the Tropicana Field crowd of 29,763, UCF netted just 35 yards on the ground, 33 of them coming in the fourth quarter when the outcome of the game was already decided. And in the passing game, two Brett Hodges’ interceptions led to 14 points for Rutgers, bowl winners for a fourth consecutive season. And UCF’s defense yielded 380 yards and eight third-down conversions. ``The offense put up 14 points and a field goal early and defensively we played our butts off. We didn’t want to go out like this, and this is so disappointing,’’ senior defensive tackle Travis Timmons said. ``It’s just such a big letdown. We’re 0-14 now against Big East teams and 0-3 in bowl games. Torrell (Troup), Bruce (Miller) and myself along the defensive line wanted to change all of that, but unfortunately things didn’t go the way we wanted them to.’’ Rutgers (9-4) played like an experienced team in its fifth consecutive bowl, using big plays on offense and an attacking defense to frustrate the Knights. Rutgers got six sacks and two interceptions defensively and freshman quarterback Tom Savage threw for 294 yards and two TDs.

Georgia UCF

6 10

December 31, 2010 Memphis, Tenn. LIBERTY BOWL MEMORIAL STADIUM MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A UCF football program clearly on the rise as a powerhouse to be reckoned with nationally registered a landmark victory in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, beating Southeastern Conference power Georgia while registering the school’s first-ever bowl victory. When UCF sophomore safety Kemal Ishmael batted down a Hail Mary pass that seemed to hang in the air forever, it preserved No. 24 UCF’s 10-6 defeat of Georgia and set off a wild celebration among the 8,000 Knights’ fans who roared with noise inside the Liberty Bowl. Doing something for a first time is never easy, and this first-ever bowl victory for UCF went down to the final seconds. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray heaved a pass into the end zone for 6-foot-4 superstar wide out A.J. Green, but Ishmael was there to make the game-saving play that is sure to live in the history of the program for years to come. Sophomore tailback Latavius Murray, the game’s Outstanding Offensive Player and the MVP, scored on a 10-yard run with 9:01 to play to put the Knights ahead 10-6. And a defense that was dominant a couple of weeks ago in the Conference USA title game made it stand up. They held a Georgia offense that came in averaging 34.3 points a game to just two field goals and no touchdowns. Freshman quarterback Jeff Godfrey capped a stellar first season on campus, helping the program win a C-USA title and the school’s first bowl game. Let the comparisons to UCF legend Daunte Culpepper begin after he joined the school’s lore. He completed 16 of 29 passes for 117 yards. Georgia drove 61 yards on the first drive of the second half, but again had to settle for a Blair Walsh 42-yard field goal when the Knights got crucial pass breakups from Ishmael and senior cornerback Justin Boddie. That 6-3 Georgia lead would be its final advantage of the game because they couldn’t score against UCF’s gritty defense. UCF appeared to have scored first for the 13th time in 14 games when Quincy McDuffie took the opening kickoff back 98 yards. McDuffie, one of only nine players in the nation to return two kicks for touchdowns, hit a seam and sprinted for an apparent touchdown. However, the return was negated by a holding penalty on UCF special teams ace Ronnie Weaver. Georgia’s first drive started at the 2-yard line following a 56-yard boot by UCF senior punter Blake Clingan, but the Bulldogs proceeded to march 95 yards in the next 15 plays. But the Knights stiffened up near the goal line, forcing Georgia to settle for a field goal that put the `Dogs up 3-0, and the Knights tied the game up 3-3 just before the half.

UCF Bowl History 2012 Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl

Ball State UCF

17 38

December 21, 2012 st. petersburg, fla. Tropicana Field ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The slogan of UCF for 2012 was “Finish.” And the Knights did just that with an exclamation point in the 2012 Beef `O’ Brady’s Bowl. UCF earned its second bowl victory in program history with a 38-17 win over Ball State. Led by the all-time winningest senior class in school history, UCF clinched its 10th victory of the season behind an impressive effort by the duo of senior running back Latavius Murray and sophomore signal-caller Blake Bortles. Bortles capped his first full season in style, earning MVP honors while finishing 22-of-33 for 271 yards and three passing touchdowns. He also led the team with a career-high 80 yards on the ground and another score. Murray was just as impressive, cashing in for three touchdowns (all in the first half) and 104 total yards, with 71 on the ground and 33 through the air on a teamhigh six catches. The defense also did its part in the drubbing of the Cardinals. Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year Kemal Ishmael finished his career with 367 tackles after recording seven in the contest. He also forced his sixth career fumble and two pass break-ups. Fellow senior defensive end Troy Davis also went out in style with 1.5 sacks to crack the UCF top 10 with 18-career QB take downs. After winning the toss and receiving the ball to start the game, UCF matriculated down the field, mixing the run and pass well on a 13-play, 78-yard drive that was capped off by a Bortles-to-Murray touchdown connection. The drive ate 7:33 off the clock and was aided by the sophomore QB’s ability to evade the pass rush, while also connecting with rookie Breshad Perriman three times for 21 yards and a pair of first downs. With the defense forcing a quick three-and-out, UCF’s offense continued its impressive start with a seven-play 58-yard drive that saw Murray reach pay-dirt on a short 2-yard burst. The Knights closed out the first quarter outgaining the Cardinals, 160-15. Ball State would settle in, however, with an 82-yard drive for seven points that saw Keith Wenning hit Willie Snead from seven-yards out to make it a 13-7 contest in the second quarter. UCF responded with Bortles completely taking over on the ensuing drive. The Oviedo native became a dual threat on the drive, rushing three times for 32 yards, including a 6-yard scramble up the middle that saw him bulldoze a pair of Cardinal defenders on his way to the end zone. He capped the scoring drive with UCF’s first two-point conversion since Sept. 5, 2009, hitting senior H-back Dontravius Floyd in the back of the end zone. Ball State drove right back into UCF territory, reaching the Knights’ 10-yard line prior to freshman DL Thomas Niles sacking Wenning for an 11-yard loss. The thirddown tackle for loss resulted in a much longer field-goal attempt, which sailed well left of the uprights. Starting on its own 32-yard line with just 55 seconds left in the half, Bortles hit junior Jeff Godfrey and Murray for 12 and 10 yards before launching a 45-yard beauty to a streaking Perriman, who finished with a career-best 90 yards on five catches, on the far side line. The career-long reception led to Bortles hitting Murray for the second time in the half, this time from five yards out with just five ticks left on the first-half clock. After a 45-yard field goal by Schott to make it 28-10 with 7:54 left in the third quarter, the Cardinals attempted an onside kick that redshirt sophomore running back Cedric Thompson grabbed out of the air safely to set up the Knights at the BSU 49-yard line. Bortles continued to shred the Ball State defense with the prime field position. He racked up 41 of the next 49 yards through the air, tying his career record and a Beef `O’ Brady’s Bowl mark with touchdown pass No. 3 from seven yards out to fellow sophomore J.J. Worton. Sophomore Shawn Moffitt would cap the Knights’ scoring on the year with a 25-yard field goal to make it 38-10. The Cardinals tacked on a late touchdown to account for the final tally of 38-17. On the season, UCF finished with 496 total points, second all-time in program history.

Florida Citrus Bowl

On Sept. 29, 1979, the Florida Citrus Bowl, known back then to the Orlando community as the Tangerine Bowl, opened its doors for a hometown, start-up football program guided by Don Jonas. The Knights called the crown jewel of the Orlando Centroplex home until the 2007 season when Bright House Networks Stadium was erected on the UCF campus. Jonas was the first of seven men that led the Knights onto the field at the Citrus Bowl. Current head coach George O’Leary was the last. The relationship witnessed more than 100 Knight victories came to an end when the Black and Gold ran through the Citrus Bowl tunnel one last time on Nov. 25, 2006, against UAB. The Citrus Bowl saw the Knights’ football program rise through the division ranks of the NCAA, starting as a Division III member in 1979, to making the move to Division II in time for the 1982 season, then on to Football Championship Division status in 1990 before finally emerging at the top level as a Football Bowl Subdivision member in 1997. The Knights were victorious in their inaugural game at the stadium, defeating Fort Benning 7-6 in front of 14,138 fans. Quarterback Mike Cullison’s touchdown pass to Bobby Joe Plain on a fourth-and-goal was the first Knight score in the venue and proved to be the difference in the game. UCF fans would go on to set a Division III record as an average of 11,420 fans attended the Knights’ four home games that season. During UCF’s 28-year stretch when it called the Citrus Bowl home, the stadium was the platform for some great UCF moments. The final home game vs. UAB in 2006 served as the final opportunity to add to that long, memorable list, and the Knights did not disappoint. Quarterback Kyle Israel found Mike Walker twice in the first quarter for a pair of touchdowns and the Black and Gold did not look back, defeating the Blazers 31-22. The crowd of 23,755 broke the 200,000 mark for the first time in school history, as the Knights saw a then-school record 220,980 fans flock through the gates in 2006. UCF completed its tenure at the Florida Citrus Bowl with a 112-59-1 record. The Knights outscored their opponents 5,136-3,496 in 172 games with the 5,000th point coming on a Michael Torres extra point against Villanova Sept. 2, 2006. 118
