The UCF Knights’ regular season finale is scheduled to end in traditional fashion with the annual War on I-4 rivalry series against USF on Black Friday.

The game is scheduled to kick off at 3:30 p.m. Friday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

The Knights (5-3, 4-3) fell to No. 7 Cincinnati 36-33 at the Bounce House last weekend. The Bulls (1-7, 0-6) were most recently dismantled by Houston 56-21.

A win on Friday would give UCF a four-game win streak over USF, dating back to 2017.
