Florida AD open to sched­ul­ing UCF

The Tribune (SLO) - - Sports -

Florida ath­let­ics di­rec­tor Scott Strick­lin said he would be open to sched­ul­ing a foot­ball game, or even series, with UCF. The game would pit one of the nation’s sto­ried pro­grams and the state’s flag­ship univer­sity against one of fastest ris­ing pro­grams in col­lege foot­ball and a univer­sity with the state’s largest en­roll­ment.

Strick­lin said UCF ath­let­ics di­rec­tor Danny White has never reached out about the pos­si­bil­ity of play­ing the Ga­tors. Strick­lin said he would be will­ing to pick phone, too.

If the schools were to set up a Ga­tors-Knights’ series, Strick­lin said it would have to be sim­i­lar to the two-for-one struc­ture of UF’s up­com­ing series with USF, an­nounced last May. get­ing penal­ties in the Foot­ball Bowl Sub­di­vi­sion this sea­son was the same as in 2017, end­ing four straight years of in­creased calls.

NCAA na­tional co­or­di­na­tor of of­fi­cials Rogers Red­ding re­ported 179 en­forced calls in 817 games com­pared with 179 in 816 games last sea­son.

The fi­nal 2017 re­port orig­i­nally listed 188 en­forced calls, but Red­ding said the num­bers are some­times ad­justed after an off­sea­son re­view. The NCAA com­piles its num­bers through re­ports sub­mit­ted each week by con­fer­ences.
