The University of Central Florida first fielded a varsity football team in the fall of 1979 as a Division III program, and subsequently completed their ascension to Division I–A, now known as the Division I Football Subdivision, in 1996. As a Division I–AA program, the Knights made the 1990 and 1993 playoffs, and were picked as the preseason No. 1 team to start the 1994 season.
As of the completion of the 2013 regular season, UCF has 215 official victories, has won four division championships, and three conference championships. The Knights have made six postseason appearances since joining FBS, in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013, including one BCS bowl game. One Consensus All-American has played at UCF, Kevin Smith in 2007, and the school has produced two Heisman Trophy candidates, Daunte Culpepper in 1998 and Kevin Smith in 2007. The program has also produced a long-line of NFL players. Playing in fourteen Super Bowls and including four pro-bowlers, the list most notably includes Brandon Marshall, Bruce Miller, Matt Prater, Asante Samuel, Mike Sims-Walker, and Josh Sitton. The Knights' main rivals are the East Carolina Pirates and the South Florida Bulls.
