UCF to play Duke in Military Bowl

ORLANDO, Fla. -- UCF will play Duke on December 28 in the Military Bowl.

The Knights (9-4) will battle the Blue Devils (8-4) in the 34,000-seat Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland at 2:00. UCF is set to play in a program-record seventh-straight bowl game and its tenth in eleven seasons.

UCF had the chance to play USC in the Cotton Bowl, but a loss to Tulane in the American Athletic Conference title game sent them elsewhere.

UCF and Duke will meet for the first time. This marks the second time UCF has faced a current ACC member in a bowl game—following NC State’s win over the Knights in the 2014 St. Petersburg Bowl.
