Although the University of Central Florida football team is 0-8, this season hasn't been a total loss for Knights fans.
They are at least getting some perks out of their team's poor performance.
Earlier this year, a bar in Orlando, Florida, made the bold move of offering free beer during UCF games until the Knights won a game—because they needed a reason to get excited about game day. Now, another company is taking the initiative to help out Knights fans during a tough time.
Uber is offering new riders—presumably within a certain radius of the UCF campus—a free first ride with the service until the Knights win a game:
Deals like this should help ease fans' pain as the losses pile up.
Central Florida suffered two one-point defeats in its first three games of the season. Since then, the Knights have not had a game closer than 14 points. After the latest defeat, a 59-10 blowout loss against Houston, coach George O'Leary retired:
The Knights' rough season comes just one year after they won a share of the American Athletic Conference title in a 9-3 regular season, which led to an appearance in a bowl game.
UCF will have four more chances to break into the win column this season. If the team continues to lose, at least the fans will keep winning.
