ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Five teams that played in postseason bowl games to finish the 2019 campaign— North Carolina, Cincinnati, Temple, Tulane, and Florida International — highlight a seven-game home football schedule for UCF in 2020.

The American Athletic Conference in November announced league opponents for 2020 and 2021 and today adds dates for all the 2020 contests.

The AAC in May will announce the first three weekends of kickoff times and television details as well as those specifics for any midweek contests.

UCF’s Friday opener versus North Carolina already has been announced as an ESPN telecast—and the Knights’ other weekday/weeknight contests (at East Carolina, at Memphis and at USF) all will be shown on one of the ESPN outlets. Other kickoff times will be announced week to week next fall—on either a 12- or six-day turnaround.

UCF’s attractive home slate for 2020 includes winners of the Birmingham (Cincinnati), Military (North Carolina) and Armed Forces (Tulane) bowls, as well as teams that qualified for the Military (Temple) and Camellia (Florida International) contests.

UCF’s seven home foes for 2020 combined for a 52-37 (.584) mark in 2019. The Knights’ road agenda is highlighted by a Friday night (Oct. 16) assignment at defending AAC champion Memphis.

The schedule also includes a Nov. 7 home contest versus Florida A&M that previously had been listed for an October date.
