As more schools continue to announce non-conference schedules, we are learning more about the UCF Knights’ hoops schedule. This week learned about three more UCF games.

November 13th at Miami

First on Thursday, Miami announced their schedule, which includes a November 13th home date with UCF. The two programs have met ten times previously, most recently at UCF on November 12, 2019, when the Hurricanes won 70-59.

December 1st at Auburn

On Wednesday, we learned that UCF will be traveling to Auburn on December 1st, per Auburn, who announced their non-conference schedule.

The two programs met last year at UCF as the Knights knocked off Auburn 63-55 in the season opener back on November 30th.

The Tigers went 13-14 last season, but figure to be much better this year. They will be a favorite to win the SEC according to many college basketball experts, including CBS Sports’ John Rothstein, who has Auburn ranked 13th in his top 45 rankings.

This is UCF’s fourth game that we know the date of. Back in July we wrote about the Knights’ home game with Oklahoma being on November 27th.

Auburn will not be the only marquee game UCF will have in the month of December. The Knights will also play Florida State on December 18th at the Orange Bowl Classic in Sunrise, Florida, which was announced back in May.

November 16th vs. Jacksonville

Other dates for UCF Basketball includes hosting Jacksonville on November 16th, according to Jacksonville’s non-conference slate announced earlier this week.

Last week we learned about UCF’s pairings in the 18-game American Athletic Conference schedule, which includes home-and-homes with ECU, Houston, Memphis, South Florida, Temple, Tulane, Tulsa, and Wichita State. UCF will only have one game with Cincinnati and SMU, hosting the Bearcats while traveling to Dallas to take on the Mustangs.

We still await other non conference games for UCF. Last year UCF agreed to a home-and-home series with Michigan. In theory Michigan would be scheduled to come down to Orlando to play the Knights this season. Will see if that is still the case.

One thing is for sure: 2021-2022 is shaping up to be one of most challenging schedules in program history.
