It's hard to imagine how a team can go from winning a major bowl, as UCF did in 2013 with its victory over Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl, to winless just two years later, but that's what the Knights managed to do.

Few saw it coming.

In fact, the preseason media poll made the Knights no worse than the No. 4 pick to win the American Athletic Conference title and to finish second behind favored Cincinnati in the East Division.

But things went downhill quickly when the Knights lost their opener to underdog Florida International and then lost starting quarterback Justin Holman to a hand injury in the loss to Stanford in the second game of the season.

Things continued to slide from there with a loss to Furman, an FCS program, in the third game confirming the worst. Compete for a title? This Knights team was going to struggle to compete for just a win, which, of course, it failed to get.

Injuries, of course, played a huge part in UCF's downfall. Starters or prospective starters missed over 50 games for the Knights on offense alone.

In addition to Holman, who would return later in the year but then get hurt again and miss the second half of the loss to East Carolina, the Knights also lost their leading returning receiver when Jordan Akins went out after just three games.

Running back Dontravius Wilson won the starting job in fall camp, then missed half the season because of a leg injury sustained in the opener. Veteran running back William Stanback was dismissed from the team in September after logging only 12 carries in two appearances.

And the list goes on.

But the Knights are ready for a fresh start for 2016.

Scott Frost takes over for George O'Leary, who gave up the ship after the 59-10 loss to Houston in late October, and seems to have injected new life into the program. He comes from Oregon, where he served as offensive coordinator the last two years.

He is taking an aggressive approach in the rebuilding job he faces.

"We're not going to be afraid to take chances and try things," Frost said at his introductory press conference. "I know it's going to be a really entertaining type of football.

"So fans better buckle their seatbelt, because we're going to punch the accelerator and go fast around here. And sooner or later that's going to lead to a lot of success."

Frost likes the youth of his roster. UCF had the third-youngest team in the country in 2015.

"There's going to be a lot of people that are hungry to be led in the right direction," he said. "That probably means there's some young talent that just needs to be nurtured and brought along.

"I can't wait to get started, and the look in their eyes, I know they can't wait to get started."
