What do you say when you learn that one of the local teams has been moved to a prime-time game?
How about “thanks”?
The War on I-4, better known as the USF and Central Florida rivalry game, has been moved to Thanksgiving night on ESPN. The game, scheduled to be played in Orlando, was once one-sided on behalf of the Bulls, but UCF has won the last two.
This year’s game could have added importance to USF, which could be playing for a bowl berth and, possibly, coach Willie Taggart’s job. UCF has won 21 games over the past two seasons.
