“Can’t Miss” UCF Home Football Games in 2019

After two consecutive undefeated regular seasons, the UCF Knights enter the 2019 football season as the top team in the Eastern American Athletic Conference (AAC). Despite a Fiesta Bowl loss to the LSU Tigers earlier this year, UCF head coach Josh Heupel is determined to deliver Knights fans with another perfect season. With six home games at Spectrum Stadium, fans can enjoy some of the Knights’ most thrilling match-ups of the season right here in Orlando.

A Rattling Start

Bring it on, Rattler Nation! UCF kicked off their season against Florida A&M on Thursday, August 29. The game marked the fourth time in the last five seasons that the Knights have opened with home-field advantage.

Settling the Score

After a trip to Boca Raton to visit Florida Atlantic, the Knights return home on Saturday, September 14 to host Stanford. The Cardinals are in enemy territory as UCF looks to avenge their big 2015 loss to the California team. The following week, on Saturday, September 21, the Knights close out their non-conference games against the Panthers in Pittsburgh.

Family Fun Weekend

Family Weekend is an exciting tradition at UCF and is a great time for family to visit students and alumni to relive their college days. The celebratory weekend heats up on Saturday, September 28 as the Knights play against UConn before travelling to Cincinnati on Friday, October 4 to battle the Bearcats.

Homecoming Excitement

Following the season’s first bye week, UCF will end their week-long homecoming celebrations with an invasion of Pirates as the Knights host East Carolina University on Saturday, October 19. After facing ECU, the Knights head to Philadelphia on Saturday, October 26 to play Temple.

A Stellar Game

The Knight’s third annual Space Game honors the history of UCF’s partnership with Kennedy Space Center back when the school was known as Florida Technological University in 1963. Wearing uniforms featuring Citronaut (UCF’s first mascot) and helmets adorned with various constellation patterns such as the Pegasus, the Knights will host Houston on Saturday, November 2. UCF then hits the road for two games to challenge the ACC West Division’s Tulsa on Friday, November 8 and Tulane on Saturday, November 23—with another bye week in between.

The War on I-4 Returns

Marking the end of the regular season, the annual battle against in-state rival South Florida will take place on Black Friday, November 29 at Spectrum Stadium. The Knights have won their last two match-ups with USF Bulls and are looking to make it a three-peat—especially after the season-ending knee injury former QB McKenzie Milton suffered during last years’ game.

Champions on the Charge

Set to be played at the home of an ACC divisional winner, the American Athletic Conference Championship Game will likely return to Spectrum Stadium on Saturday, December 7. The Knights are prepared to bring home a winning season, but they need your support. If you’re in the Orlando area this season and want to see what all the hype is about, stop by Spectrum Stadium and experience some truly electrifying college football courtesy of the UCF Knights.
