Frost and his staff stuck around to coach the Knights in the Peach Bowl after he took the head coach job at Nebraska.
““This is a team that was 0-12 two years ago. They had nowhere to go but up, but I can’t believe how far up they went,” Frost said.
The Knights took the lead with two touchdown passes by McKenzie Milton.
UCF lead 13-6 at halftime before Auburn rallied to take a 20-13 lead before the Knights rallied on their own.
“I’m just happy for these guys,” Scott Frost said to after the game. “They’ve worked their tails off and I’m so happy for the success that they have had.”
UCF’s offense was the talk all season long, but it was the defense that came through big on Monday, sealing a 34-27 Peach Bowl win with an interception in the game’s final seconds to cap a perfect season.

Auburn cut the lead to seven and after UCF’s second missed field goal in the second half, the Tigers drove down to UCF’s 21 before Antwan Collier sealed the game with an interception in the end zone.
The win gives UCF its first-ever 13-0 season.
