UCF was 22nd with the Knights providing an average boost of 11.7 percent for their opponent’s home ticket prices.
The Gators provided an +84 percent boost for their road games, which included contests against Miami, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, and South Carolina. The Miami Hurricanes provided a 42.1 percent boost on the road.
