Yahoo! has placed the Knights at No. 51 in the nation, first in the Conference USA East Division and second in the league as a whole behind only a Houston team that UCF beat 37-32 last fall. The annual publication projects the Knights to return to the Hawaii Bowl, the site of UCF’s first ever bowl appearance in 2005. Not surprisingly based on its projections, Yahoo! ranks UCF’s Nov. 5 contest at Houston as the game of the year for C-USA. That ESPN-televised affair will feature the 2009 C-USA Most Valuable Player in Houston quarterback Case Keenum and the league’s 2009 Defensive Player of the Year, UCF’s Bruce Miller.
A preseason All-American and candidate for the Lombardi and Nagurski Trophies, Miller is one of three Knights who appear on Yahoo!’s preseason All-Conference USA squad, alongside tailback Brynn Harvey and corner back Josh Robinson, a first-team freshman All-American in 2009.
