Central Florida receives a one-year bowl ban

National Football Post

In its last year in Conference USA before making the move to the Big East, Central Florida will be shut out of a bowl game.

According to's Andy Katz, the NCAA has handed down a one-year postseason bowl ban to the football team while also giving the men's basketball squad a postseason ban of a year. The basketball team, led by star Keith Clanton, will not be able to play in the conference tournament in Tulsa, either. The senior Clanton can also play elsewhere immediately.

For head football coach George O'Leary, it's a tough break for a team that was considered one of the favorites in C-USA this fall. The team will be eligible for postseason play next year when it makes its Big East debut.

The NCAA will officially announce the sanctions later this morning.
