UCF players excited about spring game set for Saturday at 2 p.m.
"Everybody's fired up," he said. "It's a really nice way to end spring practice. I just can't think about it too much or I'll get nervous and make a mistake. I've got to treat like another scrimmage. I need to use it as time to keep improving."
The Knights are scheduled to wrap up spring practice with their spring game Saturday at 2 p.m. at Bright House Networks Stadium.
UCF coach George O’Leary said redshirt freshman quarterback Blake Bortles will lead the starting offense against reserve senior quarterback Rob Calabrese and the second team offense during the Knights’ spring game Saturday.
The Knights will be hosting their second junior day of the spring, inviting recruits and their parents to take unofficial visits to UCF Saturday morning. They will be taken on an extensive tour of campus, then will be invited to meet with coaches and current players. The recruits then will get the opportunity to watch the spring game when it gets under way at 2 p.m.
Free parking is available in lots adjacent to the football stadium. The lots will open for tailgating starting at 8 a.m.
UCF is charging $5 for admission to the spring game. Fans who have renewed their 2012 season tickets, UCF students and children ages 12 and younger will receive free admission to the game.
