Arkansas State has accepted a bid to play in the 2nd annual Autonation Cure Bowl at what was formerly the Citrus Bowl now Camping World Stadium in Orlando FL on December 17th against AAC member UCF. For the Red Wolves it will be a sixth consecutive bowl game appearance and its first appearance in a bowl against an AAC member.

For the Knights and head coach Scott Frost, 2016 was a year to rebuild from a disastrous 0-12 2015 season. UCF finished 6-6 overall and 3rd in the AAC East with a 4-4 record including close losses against eventual AAC Champion Temple by 1 point and Houston by 7. This will be UCF’s 8th bowl appearance and come in with a 3-4 bowl record. The last bowl victory for UCF was in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl against Baylor.
