UCF falling like an anvil on Wylie Coyote

Has any team experienced more of a free fall than Central Florida?

Not too long ago, the Knights, led by Marcus Jordan, were ranked and undefeated. They had wins over Florida, Princeton, and UMass.The glory days came and went, and fast, for the Knights, who have dropped six straight.

The Knights were 14-0 on January 5. Now they're 14-6.

“I think it’s easy to be negative when it doesn’t go your way. We’re trying to build a program here, just not a good team this year," UCF coach Donnie Jones told the Orlando Sentinel. "I think that’s our mind-set. … But I still have a lot of confidence in this team.”

Defense has been a big issue for UCF. During their 14-game winning streak, only one opponent eclipsed the 70-point plateau. They've given up 70 or more in five of their six losses.
