BRIGHT HOUSE NETWORKS STADIUM
UCF will celebrate the fifth anniversary of the opening of Bright House Networks Stadium during the 2012 season. After spending the previous 28 seasons at the Citrus Bowl in downtown Orlando, the Knights have posted a 24-9 home record since the stadium opened on Sept. 15, 2007, and they have won two Conference USA championship games at home.
The 45,323-seat Bright House Networks Stadium remains one of the newest in the country. The $55 million stadium is one of many modern amenities on the north end of UCF's main campus in East Orlando. The north end also features the 10,000-seat UCF Arena, 2,000 beds of student housing and several restaurants and shops.
UCF capped its inaugural season at Bright House Networks Stadium by winning six straight games at home, including a 44-25 victory over Tulsa in the Conference USA Championship Game.
In 2009, the Knights set the Bright House Networks Stadium attendance record when 48,453 fans packed the house to watch UCF play No. 9 Miami. Later in 2009, the host Knights defeated No. 13 Houston 37-32 to record the first win in program history over a nationally ranked opponent.
In 2010, the Knights beat SMU 17-7 to win their second C-USA title at home.
