Champions play at UCF.
Knights athletic teams have earned landmark victories on state and national stages — leading them to become the youngest Power 5 institution in the country. 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 31 consecutive semesters. As UCF begins its Big 12 era, it joins a league that has produced more than 800 Academic All-America selections and claimed national championship team titles in 20 of its 23 sponsored sports. Its student-athletes and teams have combined for 742 individual NCAA titles under the Big 12 banner.
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. For schedules, tickets, stats and more, visit UCFKnights.com.

Game Day Traditions
With season tickets sold out for another year, our energetic fan base continues to make FBC Mortgage Stadium one of the best home field advantages in college football.
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:
(2 hours and 15 minutes before Kickoff) Line up along IOA Plaza and welcome the team, as they head from the bus to the locker room.
March to Victory
(90 minutes before Kickoff) Join Pegasus, Knugget, Knightro, the Marching Knights and the UCF spirit teams near Knights Plaza for the fan march to the stadium.
Turn on your cell phone flashlights during kickoff in the FBC Mortgage Stadium.
Coordinate your colors with fellow Knights — from Canaveral blue and gold to black and white.
Bounce when you hear Zombie Nation’s “Kernkraft 400” and cheer on your Knights.
Sing the UCF alma mater with the team after each home game, win or lose.
Tailgating before Knights football games is one of the most celebrated traditions at UCF. It offers a special time for reunions of family, friends and alumni. UCF is pleased to host these gatherings and welcome all of our guests to campus. We expect all fans to celebrate responsibly and adhere to the rules while on campus. And remember to stay hydrated.
