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. They’ve achieved an average GPA of 3.0 or higher for 21 consecutive semesters. Success isn’t as sweet without the cheers of fans in the stands, so every student gets free admission to sporting events on campus. Being a part of the action is an important part of our lifestyle—because we’re never as strong alone as we are together.

Visit to get in on the action.

UCF charge onto the field
With our spirit, we’ll never yield

Victory is our cry … V-I-C-T-O-R-Y
Tonight our Knights will shine!

“I love wearing the Black and Gold and representing this great school. I’ve learned a lot since stepping foot on the UCF campus. Each experience I’ve been through has taught me something of great value. Thank you to all of the people who support our program and help provide scholarships for student-athletes.”
