UCF has its sights set on another undefeated record in 2018, and new coach Josh Heupel inherits a roster stacked with talent, including All-America candidate and quarterback McKenzie Milton. The Knights have 14 selections on Athlon’s 2018 American Athletic All-Conference team, which is the most of any program in the league.

With McKenzie Milton back at quarterback, UCF is poised for another run at an undefeated record and American Athletic Conference title. Milton averaged 357.7 total yards a game last season, and his continued development will certainly ease the transition for new coach Josh Heupel.
