The last time UCF lost a football game, Hugh Freeze was still employed by Ole Miss, Gus Malzahn had a normal-sized buyout, Louisiana Tech's 4th-and-goal punt was still months away, and most people didn't know UMBC existed, let alone had a basketball program.
UCF extended their winning streak to 25 games with a win over Memphis in the AAC Championship on Dec. 1. It's the longest winning streak the FBS by a mile — Alabama is riding a 15-game streak — and the longest at any level of college football by a notable margin — North Dakota State has won 20 consecutive games. The latter honor was earned when Mount Union's 29-game streak was snapped by Mary Hardin-Baylor in the Division-III Championship on Friday night.
UCF's last loss: Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016, vs. Arkansas State in the Cure Bowl.
The last time UCF lost a football game, Patrick Mahomes II was nowhere near a discussion for top-10 NFL draft pick, Aaron Rodgers hadn't thrown that pass to Jared Cook, Minnesota football players were boycotting all team activities, and Dillon Brooks hadn't delivered the flop of the century.
The Falcons hadn't won a Super Bowl…or blown a 25-point lead, the crying Northwestern kid wasn't crying yet, Moana was the No. 1 movie at the box office — though Rogue One was in the middle of a $155-million weekend — and we were still a month away from the biggest blunder in Oscars history.
The last time UCF lost a football game, Donald Trump wasn't President of the United States, Bitcoin was still valued below $1,000, people weren't taking solar eclipse vacations, and the #MeToo movement didn't exist.
Mack Brown, Les Miles and Chip Kelly weren't coaching college football, Jon Gruden wasn't blowing up the Raiders franchise and Kansas was making their final buyout payment to Charlie Weis.
The last time UCF lost a football game was Dec. 17, 2016, a very long time ago.
