ORLANDO, Fla. – The University of Central Florida will play against the University of Florida in three games in the latest scheduling agreement.

Here is the schedule for the three games: UCF at Florida Oct. 5, 2024, in Gainesville Florida at UCF Sept. 14, 2030, in Orlando UCF at Florida Sept. 3, 2033, in Gainesville

“As I’ve said since arriving, we were in desperate need of games on our upcoming schedule,” UCF vice president and director of athletics Terry Mohajir said in a press release. “For the 2024 season specifically, we had three options. Play just 11 games instead of 12, play two FCS opponents, or play at Florida. We obviously made the best choice for our program and recruiting.
