After Loss at UAB, Knights Focus on Memphis and Homecoming

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 00:46


The UCF Knights (3-4; 1-2 C-USA) suffered a shocking defeat last week to the Blazers of UAB (1-6; 1-3 C-USA) in Birmingham, Alabama in a game that was nationally broadcasted on CSS. UCF struggled defensively and offensively. Starting quarterback Jeff Godfrey proved to be ineffective during the game; but backup Blake Bortles was put in too late. Although he was able to help put up 10 points in less than 5 minutes and put the Knights in the lead, UAB’s Ty Long hit a 41-yard field goal that would seal the fate of the game and give UAB a 26-24 win over UCF. The Knights now shift their focus to Memphis, a struggling team that is 2-6 overall and 1-3 in C-USA. Kickoff for the Homecoming game is set for 4pm. The UCF College of Nursing Alumni Chapter has a full day of events planned for UCF’s Homecoming celebration. The Alumni Breakfast begins at 8:30am in the College of Nursing at University Towers (Suite 300) in Research Park. After the Breakfast, the Homecoming Parade kicks off at 11:00. The College of Nursing Homecoming Tailgate Party then starts at Noon in the Softball Lot.
