UCF and Georgia Tech have agreed to a home-and-home series starting with UCF hosting the Yellow Jackets in 2017.

UCF will host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Bright House Networks Stadium on Sept. 16, 2017 and the Yellow Jackets will host the Knights on Sept. 19, 2020.


UCF and Georgia Tech have met on three occasions, most recently in 2000. The Yellow Jackets have won every meeting against the Knights.

Playing Georgia Tech will be familiar territory for UCF head coach George O’Leary, as he was head coach of the Yellow Jackets from 1995–2001 and served on the Georgia Tech assistant coaching staff before that.

The Knights now have multiple Power 5 opponents scheduled in future years, including Stanford, South Carolina and Michigan.
