It is the 23rd time in history that a UCF football telecast has drawn at least two million viewers. The last time it happened in a UCF regular season game telecast was the 2020 season opener at Georgia Tech (3.0 million) on September 19, 2020.
The game had stiff competition, going head to head against Penn State-Ohio State on Fox, which was the most-watched game of the day — and one of the most-watched of the season — at 9.96 million viewers.
Texas at Houston was the most-watched Big 12 game of the day at 3.08 million. That game aired on Fox at 4 p.m.
The Knights’ next two games will air on FS1. This Saturday’s home game against West Virginia starts at noon with Eric Collins and Devin Gardner on the broadcast. Collins and Gardner have called UCF’s previous 4 games that have aired on FS1 this year.
The November 4th game at Cincinnati is to start at 3:30 p.m.
