Champions play at UCF.

Knights athletic teams have earned landmark victories on state and national stages — from back-to-back American Athletic Conference titles to BCS bowl wins. But some of our student-athletes’ most important triumphs have been in the classroom, where they’ve achieved an average GPA of 3.0 or higher for 25 consecutive semesters. Though attendance is currently limited, students have access to free admission to sporting events on campus. Being a part of the action is an important part of the UCF experience — because we’re never as strong alone as we are together.

UCF Athletics 2020-21 Guide

UCF Athletics is working with university leadership, the American Athletic Conference, the NCAA and public health officials as we navigate through unprecedented times. In prioritizing the health and well-being of our community, there have been several changes made to this springs’s schedule.

The Knights have been used to busy springs, normally including baseball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s golf, rowing, and track and field—plus the end of seasons in men’s and women’s basketball.

This time, the chart also includes spring competition in men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and cross country. That’s because COVID prompted the NCAA, and then the American Athletic Conference, to push its traditional fall sports championships (other than football) into the spring.

UCF Fight Song

UCF charge onto the field
With our spirit, we’ll never yield
Black and Gold
Charge right through the line
Victory is our cry … V-I-C-T-O-R-Y
Tonight our Knights will shine!

Game Day Traditions

Innovative. Hip. Fun. Nontraditional. Knight Nation is quickly becoming one of the largest fan bases in college sports. Over the last several football seasons, we’ve won six conference championships, three Bowl Championship Series/New Year’s Six titles and were declared national champions following our perfect 13-0 football season in 2017.

Along the way, all that success has led to the establishment of more than a few UCF traditions, even if a number remain relatively new. Here’s a closer look at what Knights’ fans have come to know and love about game day:

Knight Walk

Line up along IOA Plaza and welcome the team, as they head from the bus to the locker room.

March to Victory

Join Pegasus, Knugget, Knightro, the Marching Knights and the UCF spirit teams near Knights Plaza for the fan march to the stadium.

Knight Lights

Turn on your cell phone flashlights during kickoff in the Bounce House.


Coordinate your colors with fellow Knights — from anthracite (gray) and gold to black and white.

Zombie Nation

Bounce when you hear Zombie Nation’s “Kernkraft 400” and cheer on your Knights.

Alma Mater

Sing the UCF alma mater with the team after each home game, win or lose.
