Highlighting the start of the 2011 home schedule are two special salutes, the first one recognizing UCF’s 2005, 2007 and 2010 championship teams on Sept. 3, and the second being UCF Athletics Hall of Fame Weekend, Sept. 9-10. The traditional Homecoming game is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 29. The Nov. 26 game against UTEP is Senior Day. Family Weekend/College Open House will be addressed once the television schedule is announced.
