ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - In anticipation of the UCF Homecoming football game on Saturday, fans are invited to attend the George O'Leary Radio Show on Thursday at 7 p.m. The program will air live from the MOAT Sports Bar and Grille. It is located right across the street from campus at 4250 Alafaya Trail in the University Palms Shopping Center.
Hosted by the voice of UCF football, Marc Daniels, the show can be heard in Orlando on WYGM 740AM The Game, the flagship station of the UCF IMG Sports Network.
The Knights face Memphis in their return to Bright House Networks Stadium for the 2011 UCF Homecoming Black and Gold Revolution. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. and will air on Bright House Sports Network. The Knights are 6-1 all-time against the Tigers, winning the previous six meetings since UCF joined Conference USA in 2005. The Knights (3-4, 1-2) hold a 21-10 all-time record on Homecoming and have never faced Memphis (2-6, 1-3) for the annual event.
The Black and Gold has totaled 1,661 passing yards in 2011 and is on pace to finish with 2,847, the second-highest in the O'Leary era. Meanwhile, the Knights' defense ranks nationally in the top-20 of all five major defensive categories.
During the show, fans can also call (407) 916-8255 or toll free at (800) 729-8255 with questions. Those fans in attendance will be provided with the opportunity for live questions.
UCF football mini-plans for the three remaining home games can still be purchased online at UCFAthletics.com or by calling the UCF Athletics Ticket Office at (407) 823-1000. Should UCF host the C-USA Championship Game for the fourth time in seven years, it would be played on Saturday, Dec. 3, and season ticket holders will receive the first shot at the best seats.
