Home games in bold

Breakdown

  • Seven home games to five road games is a nice ratio.
  • UCF faces two teams that finished last season ranked, both in The American: Cincinnati (#21) and Memphis (#17).
  • The Memphis game comes after the bye week.
  • The Knights play four non-Saturday games: Opening night on Friday September 4th vs. North Carolina, at ECU on Thursday, September 24th for the conference opener, Friday, October 16th at Memphis, and Black Friday (November 27th) at USF.
  • The Knights have only four days between games at Georgia Tech and at ECU.
  • UCF also doesn’t leave the state of Florida after Halloween. The only road game in November is at USF.
  • Guaranteed ESPN network games (since they’re weeknights): UNC, at ECU, at Memphis, at USF.
  • The Florida A&M game got moved from October 10th to November 7th, providing UCF a welcome break from conference play in the final month of the season.
