No. 3: UCF at the NCAA Tournament Second Round and Sweet 16
UCF traveled to Gainesville on Nov. 18 and came out of the weekend having achieved one of the most memorable feats in program history: a berth to the Elite Eight. First, the Knights earned their second-ever win over the Gators in the NCAA Tournament, knocking off the second-seeded Gators in a 3-2 decision to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 25 years. UCF then met No. 3 North Carolina and upended the Tar Heels for the first time in postseason play. The Knights outlasted UNC in penalty kicks to punch their ticket to the Elite Eight.
