ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – UCF head coach Scott Frost referred to Monday and Tuesday morning practices as bonus days for the Knights, who will begin game preparation for the 2017 season opener later this week.
With the fall semester of classes starting on Monday, #KnightsCamp is over. UCF practice inside Nicholson Fieldhouse Monday, outside on the practice fields Tuesday morning, and will take a day off Wednesday before gearing up for Aug. 31’s opener against FIU at Spectrum Stadium.
Following practice Tuesday morning, Frost had a clear message to his team. “Camp’s over. We gotta get ready for a game now.”
Defensive Coordinator Erik Chinander spoke about the end of camp.
“Today, we finished up some situational work. Coach Frost did a great job in planning this practice,” said Chinander.
“We saw some situations that we haven’t seen before. We had a little bit of scout exchange, so the guys can get used to it. We’ll get a day off tomorrow to get into game plan mode. Then, we’ll come back to prepare for game week.”
UCF Football fans will have the opportunity to interact with head coach Scott Frost, assistant coaches and players once again at UCF Knight Talk in 2017.
Starting Monday, Aug. 28 and airing each Wednesday on game week thereafter, Marc Daniels will host the radio show at Burger U on the campus of UCF. It will air live on FM 96.9/AM 740 The Game and the iHeart Radio app.
The second season of UCF Football under head coach Scott Frost is just around the corner. Fans can explore all of the new ticket options at Spectrum Stadium by visiting WeRiseandConquer.com or calling (407) 823-1000.
