QB Flowers sorry for gesture; discipline unlikely

Quinton Flowers, the star South Florida QB, said the gesture he made to the student section at Spectrum Stadium on Friday was not intended to be offensive.

UCF coach Scott Frost after finishing an undefeated regular season: "This place is really special and I saw a glimpse tonight of what it can be, and I go back to these players and these coaches. We started at the bottom two years ago and I knew we could be good. I didn't think it would happen this fast. An undefeated season doesn't happen very often. I'm thrilled for the guys that they got to experience it."
