This will be the third-ever matchup between the Knights and Gators, and the first outside of Florida Field. UF has won the first two meetings, including the most recent one in 2007.

Florida comes in 6-6, having just hired Louisiana’s Billy Napier to take over for the fired Dan Mullen.

Meanwhile, UCF comes in 8-4, tied for third in The American.
