ORLANDO, FLORIDA – After an unexpected bye week, the UCF football team returns to action on Saturday, hosting Temple for Homecoming at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
Head coach Scott Frost noted that the team responded well to having a few days off by showing enthusiasm at Monday’s practice.
“I felt like our team was on a roll a little bit, coming off of two road wins and having a game back at home,” Frost said Monday’s weekly press conference.
“I felt really good about our mojo. Now with a little bit of time off, we’ve got to re-capture that. We’re still going to play the same teams we were before, just in a little different order, so it shouldn’t change the outcome at the end. I felt really good about our momentum, and it’s up to us to attack this preparation this week to make sure that we continue that momentum.”
After almost a month away, the Knights return to Bright House Networks Stadium on Saturday.
For redshirt freshman Wyatt Miller, the team is eager for the Knights to take the field.
“I’m excited to get back in front of these fans,” Miller said. “It’s been awhile; I’m ready to get back in the Bounce House.
“We haven’t seen them since we beat ECU and got a couple more wins under our belt. We’re ready to get back home.”
