On this episode of the Black & Gold Banneret Podcast, Jeff and Eric look back at UCF’s throttling of FIU and decipher what it means for the Knights as they head into American Athletic Conference play. Then it’s on to the conference opener against ECU (6:00), with a full preview of how UCF can beat the Pirates. Eric and Jeff then discuss the moving of the Texas game from 2017 to 2023 and what that means (25:20), and go down a rabbit hole on what the best road trip will be for next football season (31:30). Then it’s on to the apparent implosion of the Big 12’s expansion gambit (40:30) and the reasons why they don’t think the conference will expand at all now. Then it’s a look at UCF Volleyball, Women’s Soccer and Men’s Soccer as they all head into conference play (55:30).
