UCF added nonconference home-and-home series with Boise State and BYU to its future schedules, the schools announced Tuesday.
For UCF, the additions show an ongoing commitment to enhance its strength of schedule. The Knights have been criticized for their strength of schedule, finishing the regular season undefeated in 2017 and 2018 but not being in the College Football Playoff conversation.
"BYU and Boise State represent big-time strength-of-schedule games for our program based on their records and Top 25 rankings in recent years," UCF athletic director Danny White said in a statement. "We are committed to continue to schedule attractive, meaningful football games both for our fans and student-athletes. BYU and Boise State are both power programs, and we're proud to play them."
Boise State and BYU do not come from Power 5 conferences, but they are still big-name opponents.
