Best. Day. Ever.

Two years ago today, UCF Knights fans woke up before dawn on an uncomfortably chilly day to make the finishing touches on their signs.

Two years ago today, Memory Mall was packed with thousands of Knights decked out in Black and Gold.

Two years ago today, a curtain dropped and revealed a Knightro doppelgänger in the form of Lee Corso.

Two years ago today, we were all confused as to why Maury Povich was selected as the celebrity guest picker.

Two years ago today, ESPN College GameDay made its debut at UCF for a Top 25 matchup in the Bounce House — and it was the best day ever.

Six losses, a quarterback competition and a “Pitt Special” later, the spirit of UCF fans has not dwindled in the slightest, partly due to the fact that we have so much to hold on to.

College GameDay’s visit to UCF was the perfect cap to two consecutive undefeated seasons and a National Championship. Beating Cincinnati that day was pretty awesome, too.

As the Knights prepare to face a Top 10 Cincinnati team on Saturday in the Bounce House, fans are reminiscing on one of the most legendary days in UCF history.
