Quoting Head Coach Jeff Garbutt
“We are very excited to go down to scrimmage with UCF this weekend. Being able to take a break from the indoor training and getting into boats is always a highlight this time of year. The Golden Knights are always a very competitive group for us to check our progress as a team. I am really looking forward to seeing the squad handle the challenges that the Golden Knights throw at us. Go Hawks!”
