ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – Part of the winningest senior class in school history by going 38-15 from 2010-13, offensive linemen Jordan McCray and Justin McCray are set to compete in the inaugural Medal of Honor Bowl Jan. 11 in Charleston, S.C. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Johnson Hagood Stadium on the campus of The Citadel.

The McCrays will be on the American team which is coached by Ralph Friedgen, who worked under UCF head coach George O’Leary at Georgia Tech and with the San Diego Chargers.

At right guard and left guard, respectively, Justin and Jordan McCray along with the rest of the line dominated No. 6 Baylor in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, not allowing a sack en route to UCF’s 52-42 win.

The twins both were named to the All-American Athletic Conference First Team as well Phil Steele’s Postseason All-Conference First Team. The McCrays also were nominees for the Wuerffel Trophy, which is handed out to those with outstanding community service, academic achievements and success on the field.

The offensive line paved the way for the Knights to average 34.6 points per game and rack up 28 rushing touchdowns. They ended the year with a school record 12 victories and their highest ranking in program history at No. 10 in the AP Top 25.
