-With UCF's media day completed, the focus is back on the practice fields where the Knights return today at 3:20 p.m. The practice will be the first with shoulder pads.

Once all of us get our chemistry, get on the same page, we know what we can do out there on the field." - Senior WR A.J. Guyton discussing UCF being a potential BCS buster.
