PHOTOS: UCF Football vs. Navy

It was a sweet Homecoming for the No. 11 UCF football team, who bested Navy in a 35-24 win at Spectrum Stadium. The Knights now hold a 27-12 record in Homecoming games and extended their winning streak to 22 games. After the win, ESPN's College GameDay announced it would be visiting UCF's campus for the team's final home game of the 2018 season on Nov. 17 against Cincinnati. (Words by Nicole Dudenhoefer '17 and Jenna Marina Lee.
