So I noticed an article on the Atlanta-Journal-Constitution website mentioning the Atlanta Falcons will play the Indianapolis Colts on Thanksgiving night. So the curiousity hit, football...... I wonder about the UCF schedule this year. A quick check at www.ucf.edu and I found it.
UCF is proud that this Fall we aill open our on-campus stadium. For the life of UCF, we have played our home football games at the Citrus Bowl in downtown Orlando, which is about 20 miles from the campus. So, we are happy as this will make it a lot more likely for people, especially students, to come out for games. (of course, being on campus there will not be beer sold in the stadium as there was at the municipality-owned Citrus Bowl).
So regarding this year's schedule. We are opening on the road against a decent ACC team.
Our off-week is the SECOND WEEK OF THE SEASON!
Our home-opener, which will be NATIONALLY TELEVISED, is against TEXAS!
Why God? Why?
(the rest of the schedule follows, my guess is something like a 4-8 season)
