ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF men's soccer team will return to the Conference USA portion of its schedule Sunday with a big test when the Knights host No. 17 SMU. The contest at the UCF Soccer Complex will start at 7 p.m. and will serve as Knights for Youth Day.

The evening will feature plenty of activities for youngsters, including a bounce house and inflatable soccer goal, free Little Caesars Pizza pregame, a temporary tattoo giveaway and a halftime raffle for a $100 Bravo Supermarkets gift certificate.

The contest is part of the 2012 Hispanic Heritage Ticket Pack, which includes tickets to the match versus the Mustangs, the football game against Southern Miss this Saturday and a baseball game in the spring for only $25. The ticket pack also includes a "Los Knights" t-shirt. Call (407) UCF-1000 today to order the ticket pack.

UCF (4-4-3, 1-1-0 C-USA) had a strong performance Wednesday in a scoreless draw against visiting Stetson. The Knights finished with a 20-9 shot advantage against the Hatters. UCF is currently listed at No. 6 in the NSCAA/Continental Tire South Region rankings.

SMU (8-2-2, 4-0-0) will be the third ranked opponent to face the Knights in Orlando in 2012. The Mustangs have a nine-match unbeaten streak and own victories over a pair of nationally-ranked teams this season.

Last season, the Knights rolled to a 4-2 win over the No. 21 Mustangs in Dallas. McKauly Tulloch had a pair of goals in the victory and Eduardo Jimenez added a score as well. Shawn Doyle had six saves in the victory for the Knights. When the teams last met in Orlando, UCF recorded a huge 2-1 victory over the No. 5 Mustangs in 2010.

On Sunday, tickets for the game will be available outside the UCF Soccer Complex. All UCF students are admitted free with a valid school ID. Live statistics and video will be available at UCFAthletics.com.
