? The Golden Knights have now made four-consecutive appearances on national television - the most in school history. USF (CSTV), Southern Miss (ESPN2), Marshall (ESPN2) and Pitt (ESPN).
? Senior WR Mike Walker's first quarter reception gave him a catch in the last 22 games he has participated in as a Golden Knight. Walker missed two games last season with a knee injury - the Conference USA Championship game and the Sheraton Hawai'I Bowl.
? Walker has led UCF in receptions OR receiving yards in every game this season. The senior had team-highs of eight receptions and 73 yards against Pitt.
? Sophomore RB Kevin Smith scored on a one-yard run in the third quarter capping a 20-play, 76-yard drive (10:03) that was the longest of the season (play and time wise) for the Golden Knights.
? True freshman Corey Rabazinski equaled his career-long catch in the first quarter with a 26-yard reception.
? Sophomore WR Willie Thornton's 13-yard run in the first quarter came on the first carry of his career.
? Senior WR Brooks Turner had a career-long reception of 42 yards. His previous career-high was 29 yards against Southern Miss in 2005.
? With the Golden Knights scheduled to move into Bright House Stadium on campus next fall, the contest with Pittsburgh served as UCF's final non-conference game at the Florida Citrus Bowl.
? UCF is 3-4 all-time in games played on Friday.
? The home attendance of 135,504 through four games is on pace to break the regular-season home attendance record of 153,334 set in 1988. That figure was achieved in seven home games - the same amount UCF has this season.
? Through four games, UCF home attendance is averaging 33,876.
? The total of 135,504 through four games is already the fourth-highest regular season attendance total in school history. The Golden Knights have three home games remaining - all in league play (Rice, Oct. 21; East Carolina, Nov. 4; and UAB, Nov. 25).
