ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - With exactly one week left until the 2012 Beef `O' Brady's Bowl, the Knights' third-straight practice is scheduled for Friday. UCF will hold a practice session each day before it leaves for St. Petersburg Tuesday.

-UCF went with full pads for Thursday's practice. At the conclusion of the session, the Knights went one-on-one with a tug-o-war as head coach George O'Leary chose a scout team player to get in the middle, and that player had the opportunity to choose whatever travel team player he wanted to face. As expected, defensive backs chose wide receivers, defensive linemen went against offensive linemen and so on.
