While most of UCF's non-conference schedule was already known, UCF and the American Athletic Conference have announced the program's 2015 schedule. Beginning with 10 consecutive Saturday games, UCF has just one bye week on the season and two weeknight games — including facing USF on Black Friday.
UCF had struggled to fill its open non-conference date, but was able to fill it with Furman — an FCS program in South Carolina. The Knights will face the Paladins on Sept. 19.
The schedule is highlighted by a trio of tough road games in Stanford, South Carolina and Cincinnati and games against five bowl teams from 2014.
