The UCF women's soccer team announced its full schedule on Tuesday: 18 games total, 10 at home.

The Knights are back in action at home in an exhibition game against Florida Gulf Coast University on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 7 p.m.

UCF will kick off its regular season at home against the Florida Gators, marking it the first time in five years they've made the trek to Orlando during the regular season, on Friday, Aug. 21 at 7 p.m.

"We are counting down the days until August and are excited about the season we have lined up against some quality programs," head coach Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak said in a press release. "Although we graduated some starters and will have 13 new players on the roster, we are going to work hard to keep those conference trophies here at UCF and make a push in the NCAA Tournament again."

UCF will take on Jacksonville, Oklahoma State and Georgetown before conference play begins on Thursday, Sept. 18.

Other notable teams the Knights will face are Miami and Florida State. Both games will be played on the road.
