Props to Sean Barakett and Paul Muia for donating to the V Foundation and putting together an entire 24 hours of UCF Knights football games on ESPNU this past Saturday.
Now that it’s over, we still want more!
So we decided to put together a list of eight more games (plus some more stuff) you can watch that are on YouTube in full (mostly) right now.
1998 - UCF 64, Louisiana Tech 30
Let’s start with Daunte Culpepper’s masterpiece. Facing eventual fellow NFL QB Tim Rattay and WR Troy Edwards, who racked up an NCAA record 405 receiving yards against Nebraska the week before, Daunte put on a show of his own:
2010 Liberty Bowl - UCF 10, Georgia 6
UCF’s first-ever bowl win was a slugfest with a talented Georgia Bulldogs team that was just beginning to make its run with QB Aaron Murray. This one went down to the final gun, with Latavius Murray’s late TD run providing the winning margin at the end of a masterful drive by freshman QB Jeff Godfrey.
1988 - The Noise Penalty Game (2nd half)
It’s the stuff of college football legend. As great as the Knightmare is, it’s never actually been so loud that the officials threw a flag on UCF for it.
Of course, the rules were different back then, but that moment was just one in a second half for the ages as then-Division II UCF knocked off the #1 team in the nation in a remarkable comeback.
2013 - UCF 39, Temple 36
The Kardiac Knights of 2013 gave everyone a scare against a one-win Temple team that featured new Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule and then-freshman QB P.J. Walker. Of course, this game is known more for a J.J. Worton catch that was pretty good:
2005 Hawai’i Bowl - Nevada 49, UCF 48 (OT)
If UCF vs. Texas taught us anything, it’s that we must take the bad with the good. UCF’s first bowl game against Nevada was an absolutely amazing contest until the very end. Brandon Marshall caught 11 balls for 212 yards and three TDs in his final game as a Knight, and freshman RB Kevin Smith ran for 202 yards and three more TDs, not to mention the Knights’ frantic comeback in the final moments.
Just remember to shut it off right before the end.
2014 - UCF 32, ECU 30
2018 - College GameDay at UCF
What better way to get ready for a Saturday at UCF than having ESPN’s traveling road show set up shop on Memory Mall? Re-live the greatest day in UCF history right here.
2018 - Cincinnati at UCF
Of course, what good is re-living College GameDay at UCF without re-living the game from later that night? It was UCF’s moment in the prime-time sun on national TV, with Kirk Herbsteit and Chris Fowler on the mic, and the Bounce House did not disappoint.
2019 - Stanford at UCF
Speaking of coming-out parties on national TV, Dillon Gabriel’s second career start put him on the national map against a Pac-12 team, as he and Gabe Davis went off against Stanford’s highly-touted DB Paulson Adebo.
Hey, where’s the 2007 C-USA Championship Game?
It’s not online! Someone find it, please! In the meantime, happy watching!
