PHOTOS: UCF Football vs. FAU

UCF remained perfect as its nation-leading victory streak extended to 16 games thanks to the Knights' 56-36 win over the FAU Owls at Spectrum Stadium on Sept. 21. It marks just the third 3-0 start to a season in UCF’s Division I Football Bowl Subdivision history. The other two were 2013 and 2017, when the Knights earned a New Year’s Six Bowl berth.
