In an email sent to UCF Football ticket holders Tuesday, a slate of seven home games have been announced for the 2022 season, finalizing the program's 12 opponents for the season.

The Knights are welcoming two Atlantic Coast Conference programs early next season.

UCF will have a couple of away games in Florida, traveling to Boca Raton to take on Florida Atlantic University on Sept. 17, and heading out west to take on the University of South Florida for the War on I-4. The Knights will play nine of their 12 games next season in Florida. The Knights will travel to East Carolina University, the University of Memphis and Tulane University for the remaining away games and AAC conference play.
