Five Things Alumni Need to Know: Bowl Game Edition

UCF vs Marshall Gasparilla Bowl 2019

For the fourth time in history, our Knights are headed to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area for a postseason bowl game, this time to play in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.

UCF (9-3) will meet Conference USA representative Marshall (8-4) at 2:30 p.m. EST on Monday, Dec. 23, 2019.

Here's what our alumni and friends should know about the game:

1. You should buy your tickets through UCF. The number of tickets UCF sells for a bowl game can help the athletic department present the best possible bowl scenario for the Knights. It is critical that UCF fans purchase bowl game tickets from, as institutional ticket purchases can impact future bowl opportunities.

2. We're hosting the official tailgate!  UCF Alumni will host the official UCF ChargeOn Tailgate ahead of the bowl game. All alumni, friends, fans and their families are invited to join us. We'll have a catered buffet, drink tickets, spirit swag and appearances by UCF fan favorites. We're working on finalizing a location, so more tailgate details to come soon - stay tuned!

3. We've got an incredible alumni group in Tampa already. If you're headed to the bowl, connect with our Tampa Bay UCF Alumni Chapter for some tips on how to make the most of your time in the Tampa/St. Pete area!

4. You can support our Knights, even if you can't make the game. In honor of another exciting season, consider making a gift to the UCF Football Excellence Fund in support of our team and join our Knight Nation Challenge.
