The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the UCF Knights have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2017 and 2020, the two schools announced today.
In the first game of the series, UCF will host Georgia Tech at Bright House Networks Stadium in Orlando on Sept. 16, 2017. The Knights will then travel to face the Yellow Jackets at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta on Sept. 19, 2020.
Georgia Tech and UCF have met three times previously, all in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets won all three contests — 27-20 in 1996, 41-10 in 1999, and 21-17 in 2000.
Current UCF head coach George O’Leary previously held the same position at Georgia Tech from 1995 through 2001.
Georgia Tech now has two non-conference games scheduled for both the 2017 and 2020 seasons. The Yellow Jackets face in-state rival Georgia both seasons, in Atlanta in 2017 and in Athens in 2020.
UCF has now tentatively completed their non-conference schedule in 2017. Other games scheduled include a home matchup against FIU (date TBD) and trips to Texas (Sept. 9) and Maryland (Sept. 23).
Georgia Tech is the first announced non-conference opponent for UCF for the 2020 season.
