ORLANDO (UCFKnights.com) - With the UCF baseball team's home series victory over USF to clinch the regular season American Athletic Conference title, the inaugural War On I-4 Rivalry Series came to a close with the Knights prevailing over the Bulls, 51-33.

In September of 2016, UCF and USF announced the year-long series in an effort to continue the passionate rivalry between the two programs. UCF has won the 2016-17 version of the War On I-4 and will keep the trophy in Orlando.

The first ever contest in the War On I-4 was a 3-0 UCF sweep of USF in volleyball on Sept. 21. The Knights also earned points in the fall with a draw in women's soccer, finishing higher than the Bulls at The American Cross Country Championships, and a second sweep in volleyball.

UCF extended its lead in the series to 36-15 with five straight victories over USF from a men's basketball home win on Jan. 17 to a men's tennis victory on Apr. 1. The Knights also earned points during that span from men's and women's basketball victories in Tampa and the track & field team coming home with The American Indoor Championship.

The UCF softball team earned an additional four points in the series when the Knights took two-of-three from the Bulls just this past weekend. But it was the women's golf team that clinched it for the Black and Gold, winning The American title and leaving the Bulls out of reach in the final standings.

The series concluded late in the spring with more points for the Knights from track and field and baseball. The UCF track squad placed ahead of USF at The American Outdoor Championships to earn three points, before the baseball team won two-of-three against the Bulls in Orlando.
