UCF fans welcome to the big-time in college football. The Knights can already claim a Colley Matrix National Championship in 2017, but now they can say they are in a big-time conference. With the transition to a power five conference, this has an opportunity to be the most exciting regular season in UCF history. Let’s take a look at the UCF Football Schedule.
2023 UCF Football Schedule
Aug 26 OPEN DATE
Aug 31 Kent State
Sept 9 at Boise State
Sept 16 Villanova
Sept 23 at Kansas State
Sept 30 Baylor
Oct 7 at Kansas
Oct 12 OPEN DATE
Oct 21 at Oklahoma
Oct 28 West Virginia
Nov 4 at Cincinnati
Nov 11 Oklahoma State
Nov 18 at Texas Tech
Nov 25 Houston
The last time UCF fans had a Kent State sighting was in the early 2000’s where The Golden Flashes defeated the Knights back to back. Not many people realize that Kent State and UCF were once conference mates. Those times are long gone, and the Knights have moved onto bigger and better things. While Kent State is in the same old conference they have always been in and will always remain.
Kent state lost their head coach to Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes. Kenni Burns the former Running back coach at Minnesota takes over the helm. For every team the first game sets the tone. UCF Head Coach Gus Malzahn should have his program set solid by year three. If this is not a blow out against a MAC team beginning a new era, this would be a huge disappointment.
The Out of Conference Schedule is now slim
The Knights are not only transitioning to a bigger conference but a different type of conference schedule. UCF was used to only playing eight conference games, well in the Big 12 they will play nine conference games. Meaning their out of conference schedule has slimmed down by one.
Kent State, Boise State, and Villanova are the out of conference schedule this season. Boise State will be a test but Knight fans should expect a 3-0 start to ramp up for Big 12 play. A slip up in the first three games suppresses the excitement for the Big 12 Schedule.
Big 12 Notes
- The Knights will not see 2022 College Football Playoff Participant TCU on their regular season schedule, nor blue blood Texas.
- The Knights will be meeting Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, and Texas Tech on the gridiron for the first time ever.
- This will be the first time UCF does not play I-4 Rival USF since 2012.
