The University of Central Florida (UCF) Knights football team, also known as the UCF Knights, represents the University of Central Florida located in Orlando, Florida. The Knights' first football season was in 1979 as an NCAA Division III team and UCF became a 1-A/FBS team in 1996.

Prior to the 2007 season, the team was known as the "Golden Knights".

As of the 2017 regular season, UCF has 243 victories, has won six division championships and six conference championships, and an undefeated season in 2017. The Knights have a national championship for the 2017 season despite being excluded from that season's College Football Playoff.[1]

The Knights have made ten postseason appearances since joining the FBS, including winning two major bowls: the 2014 Fiesta Bowl and the 2018 Peach Bowl. The program has produced one Consensus All-American, Kevin Smith in 2007, and three Heisman Trophy candidates, Daunte Culpepper (QB) in 1998, Kevin Smith (RB) in 2007, and McKenzie Milton (QB)[2] in 2017 and 2018. UCF has produced a long line of accomplished NFL players, including Blake Bortles, A.J. Bouye, Kemal Ishmael, Brandon Marshall, Matt Prater, Asante Samuel, and Mike Sims-Walker. UCF has had four first-round picks in the NFL Draft, players in fourteen Super Bowls, and seven pro-bowlers. The Knights' main rivals are the South Florida Bulls.

The Knights are a member of the NCAA FBS American Athletic Conference and play their home games at Spectrum Stadium in Orlando. The Knights are currently coached by Josh Heupel.
