» The Knights began playing football in 1979 as a Division III program and moved up to Division I in 1996. When UCF began competing in Conference USA in 2005, travel expenses increased $700,000 and contract services $1.2 million, including chartered aircraft. This fall saw the next major milestone and price tag: The opening of a $55-million stadium. Bright House Networks paid $15 million for naming rights.

» By far the largest revenue source for the UCF Athletics Association is student fees — more than $12.6 million, compared to a little more than $1 million from all game revenue and $3.3 million from contributions to all sports.
