The Cougars (32-15, 8-6 AAC) are looking to carry their momentum from Tuesday’s thrilling win into the weekend series with the Knights (28-17, 7-8 AAC), as Houston has now won six-straight contest and seven of its past eight overall.
_ _ UCF is one of Houston’s most familiar foes, having faced the Knights 40 times in the 13-year history between the programs. With the UCF holding the all-time series lead by a slight margin of two games, the two teams have been nearly neck-and-neck since Head Coach Kristin Vesely took the helm of the Cougar program.
_ _ In the past two years, each squad has won three games, with Houston holding a slim edge in the scoring department, 27-24. The last time Houston traveled to Orlando was in 2017, where the Cougars rallied in the seventh inning of the rubber match to come back and win the series, 2-1, marking the first time Houston claimed a season series over UCF since 2013.
