Central Florida receives a one-year bowl ban

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 ESPN.com'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 due to recruiting violations in the programs.

The basketball team, led by stars Keith Clanton and Marcus Jordan, will not be able to play in the conference tournament in Tulsa, either. The star duo can play immediately if they choose to transfer out of UCF.

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, which cannot play in a potential league championship game either, 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. UCF went in front of the Committee on Infractions in April following allegations that the school was involved with runners for sports agents and cash payments as well as gifts to recruits.
