The day after Thanksgiving won’t just signal holiday shopping sales for retail stores nationwide, but also part of the action-packed college football rivalry slate.

And that’s also the day the “War on I-4” comes from Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium with USF hosting UCF.

Bulls head coach Charlie Strong already is seeking a huge turnout of USF support to keep the game a distinct home-field advantage.

“I just don’t want them (Knights fans) to come in and take over our stadium,” Strong told the Tampa Bay Times this week.



UCF fans have already reacted via social media, which included pointing out to Strong that Raymond James is the Tampa Bay Bucs’ stadium and not USF’s.


The Bulls do not currently have an on-campus football stadium.
