UCF Knights Season Prediction, What Will Happen

Let’s start by assuming the injury issues of last year in the backfield don’t become a problem this time around.

This year, the Knights are more than set at both quarterback and running back if the main men go down. The lines are going to be fine, the receiving corps will figure itself out, and the running game will be among the best in the American Athletic Conference.

In the last year in the league before going off to the Big 12, the team is being sent off with a lovely parting gift from the conference schedule.

Set The UCF Knights Regular Season Win Total At … 9.5

No offense to UCF – okay, maybe a little – but Houston should be the best team in the AAC. It’s not on the schedule, and missing Tulsa isn’t that bad a deal, either.

Making things even better, two of the other stars – Cincinnati and SMU – have to come to the Bounce House.

Yeah, there are two ACC teams on the slate, but Louisville and Georgia Tech have to make the trip to Orlando, too.

That leaves a wildly manageable road schedule of Florida Atlantic, East Carolina, Memphis, Tulane, and USF – meaning the Knights only have to leave Florida three times.

There will be a loss somewhere in a tight game – Cincinnati is still really good, and don’t scoff over those road games at Memphis and East Carolina – and it’s possible one of the two ACC teams is able to rise up and rock, but …

Demand at least double-digit regular season wins and a trip to the American Athletic Conference Championship.
