American Athletic Conference Logos
The UCF Knights are the athletic teams that represent the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida. The Knights participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division I as a member of the American Athletic Conference. UCF, its athletic program, and the university’s alumni and sports fans are sometimes jointly referred to as the “UCF Nation,” and are represented by the mascot Knightro. The “Knight” was chosen as the university mascot in 1970 by student election. The “Knights of Pegasus” – as it was originally called – was a submission put forth by students, staff, and faculty, who wished to replace UCF’s original mascot, the Citronaut, which was a mix between an orange and an astronaut. The Knights were also chosen over “Vincent the Vulture,” which was a popular unofficial mascot among students at the time. From 1993 through 2007, the teams were known as the Golden Knights. In 1994, Knightro debuted as the Knights' official athletic mascot.
