UCF Knights Depart for Ireland

Filed under: UCF Sports — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:01


The UCF Knights (0-0; 0-0 AAC) departed Orlando this afternoon for Ireland. The Knights take on the Nittany Lions of Penn State (0-0; 0-0 Big 10) in the Croke Park Classic this Saturday. The matchup between the two¬†will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2. Kickoff is set for 8:30am EST. UCF returns 9 starters and has a hellacious Defense which should give the inexperienced Penn State offense all it can handle. The Knights, however, have some big question marks after the loss of quarterback Blake Bortles and top running back Storm Johnson to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Penn State leads the series 2-1; but the Knights took care of business and bested them 34-31 last year in Beaver Stadium. Take a look at the video below featuring highlights of the Knights boarding their bus to the airport along with some interviews by key UCF players and head coach George O’Leary:
