The lyrics from popular British boy band, 'The Wanted,' provided an unintentionally sad soundtrack in the final 30 seconds to an overwhelmingly triumphant night for UCF football.
"I'm glad you came, I'm glad you came. wuh-uh-uh . . ."
Except, few people came to watch the Knights trounce SMU 42-17 Saturday.
Let's do a quick crowd comparison. An estimated total of 40,478 fans came to watch a local grudge match between UCF and FIU Sept. 15. Almost 4,500 less came to UCF's homecoming game to watch the team extend its undefeated conference record to five games Saturday.
UCF football is winning and virtually no one is watching.
And you're missing a good show.
Just two football players rushed for more than 100 yards against SMU's rush defense ranked No. 1 in Conference USA this season: Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel and UCF's Latavius Murray.
Speaking of Murray, remember the complaints about a boring offense? Well, how about Murray's 42-, 75-, 83-yard touchdown runs in two games against East Carolina and Marshall after missing three games in four weeks due to injury? That 83-yard run was the second longest rushing touchdown in UCF history, by the way.
He followed that with 156 rushing yards and two touchdowns Saturday and became just the ninth player in UCF history to have more than 2,000 career rushing yards.
Murray's been assisted by a solid offensive line that didn't miss a beat when starting left guard Theo Goins went down with a groin injury.
Should the Knights beat rival Tulsa in a few weeks, they could end the season on an eight game win streak at Bright House Networks Stadium headed into the Conference USA championship Dec. 1.
You couldn't ask for more. But I'm still left with a question.
Will anyone bother to show up?
"What are we, the second largest school in America and we can't sell out a 45,000 seat stadium on homecoming. That's kind of pathetic," UCF alum Scott Kairalla said.
Shameful is more like it.
A winning sports team is usually the best marketing tool. UCF football more than fits the bill so far. The Knights are in contention for a conference championship, and they are bowl eligible as of a few weeks ago.
The Knights are having a good football season so far and the empty seats keep piling up.
Before Saturday's game, UCF attendance declined during three of its past four games. There was a slight increase in attendance (34,514) for Southern Miss.
UCF is the second largest school in the nation and saw its enrollment surpass 60,000 students this fall for the first time in school history.
Yes, some of those students are commuters but c'mon. This is Florida, home of college football enthusiasts. This is also Central Florida, home to one major professional sports team — the Orlando Magic.
