It was a glorious Knight in Tampa once again.

Check out our 152-photo gallery from the UCF Knights’ 29-17 victory over the Florida Gators in the 2021 Gasparilla Bowl in Tampa:

The Knights’ win over Florida is the first victory over the Gators in school history.

Among our photos from the evening: Ryan O’Keefe’s spontaneous and fitting tribute to the late Otis Anderson as he marched into the end zone for a key 54-yard TD catch that put UCF up for good.

Also: Check out photos of the Knights’ celebration after the game, as the team honored Otis on the field during the trophy presentation.

UCF finishes the season at 9-4, and the victory is not only a nice punctuation to the end of the 2021 season, but a major signal to fans and recruits heading into 2022:

The Knights are here to stay.
