UCF Cracks Top 25

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Welcome to the Top 25, Central Florida.

UCF's rapid rise reached a major milestone Sunday, earning the program's first national ranking in The Associated Press poll. UCF checked in at No. 25.

The Knights (7-2, 5-0) are the only team unbeaten in Conference USA this season. They vaulted into the national rankings with big wins against East Carolina and Houston and are in prime position to host the league title game.

The program long in the shadows of the state's Big Three also has at least some bragging rights this week: While Florida is No. 24, Florida State and Miami are unranked.
