ong> - The UCF Knights begin their second season in the American Athletic Conference among the league's elite programs.
Combine that with Louisville and Rutgers leaving the AAC, and it's easy to see why UCF has quickly become one of the conference's most recognizable teams.
Offensive lineman Joey Grant said Friday at the team's media day that, "The more conference championships we win, the more that will be true."
The Knights return nine starters on defense and expect to be title contenders again this year.
