We get it.

See, Central Floridians love UCF games – and student-athletes feel that energy when they drain a three-pointer or hit one out of the park. They feel the love every time you paint your face, wear that black and gold wig, show up to tailgate or turn on the TV and bring them into your homes.

So with the first home football game a few weeks away it’s a perfect time to catch all Knight fans up on what game day means here at UCF.
