Even though UCF’s football team holds a 15-1 all-time record against the American Athletic Conference opponents and sits in the driver’s seat as the back-to-back AAC champions, the league announced on Tuesday that the Knights are predicted to finish second in the American’s East Division, according to a press release.
This will be the inaugural year of two divisions in the AAC as the previous two years consisted of just a single division.
Out of 30 media representatives from the league, Cincinnati received 29 first-place votes to win the East Division while UCF received just one.
Memphis’ 13 first-place votes beat out Houston and the AAC’s newest member, Navy, for the lone finish in the West Division.
UCF brings a 10-game winning streak at Bright House Networks Stadium going into its first matchup of the 2015 season against FIU on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m.
