ORLANDO, Fla. - University of Central Florida officials will be in Indianapolis Thursday to try to avoid serving a one-year postseason ban for its football team when they move to the Big East Conference next year.
UCF President Dr. John Hitt, athletic director Todd Stansbury and members of their legal counsel will present their case in front of the NCAA's committee on infractions.
The NCAA handed down the punishment because of recruiting violations, but the Knights plan to argue that none of the student athletes involved ever played for UCF.
