ANN ARBOR, MICH. - Fans travel far and wide to support their team. In this case, University of Central Florida students and alumni were supporting their team in Ann Arbor against Michigan.
Although UCF was brutally defeated, 51-14, the fans said they’ll continue to follow their team, no matter the distance.
They traveled more than 1,000 miles away to see a team they've loved from the start.
“I will follow the Knights anywhere they go, I love them," UCF grad Chelsea Trynz said. "I will be a UCF Knight forever.
"I want it to be a legacy in my family I want my kids to come with me, and I just want to spread UCF pride everywhere."
There was no shortage of UCF Knights fans at the Big House.
"We have 63,000 students and with a school that big, you’re going have a lot of people that want to travel and this seemed like the coolest experience we’d have this year so wanted to see the Big House," UCF alumni Sean Marlowe said.
According to college sports gurus, the Knights weren't favored to win.
The confidence level for the game? "Zero. Well, .1," Marlowe said.
But that doesn’t stop Trynz.
"I am extremely confident and I have so much belief in the UCF Knights that they will pull through, it’s going to be a close game but they’re going to take it-they’re going to win it," Trynz said.
UCF was winless last season and fans say no matter the distance, traveling with their team and showing their support will help the Knights bring it home this year.
