Flights to Dublin are only $2,150 and tickets are only $82. Anybody want to give me about $4,500 so my wife and I can go see UCF play in Ireland?

Why did UCF agree to play a game in Ireland again?

I get why it theoretically works for Notre Dame or Penn State, maybe even Navy (as appreciation for them not speaking German) but it doesn't click even with George O'Leary as the HC.

Publicity. It's either that or play ND in South Bend or maybe somewhere like New York, or don't play ND at all. Whether they get spanked or not, they can use it to gain popularity with fans and recruits (in theory).

Realistically it's ND's connection to Ireland, and then whoever they get to play them.

They made the agreement to play a home-and-home. They played at PSU last year. PSU was having difficulties scheduling a return trip to Orlando (or just didn't want to play there) because of changes in the BIG schedule and they wanted to play in Ireland. It was either play in Ireland or try and find a new opponent (likely a lowly FCS team). Playing in Ireland, even if they lose, will have more longterm benefits than beating down Charleston Southern.

This would make sense if they were actually playing Notre Dame in Ireland. Instead they're playing Penn State.

Ha my bad, I was confusing it with last year's ND game.

I mean they still get publicity, but yea, not sure why Ireland of all places. But yea, basically as jrd alluded to, it was either play PSU where they wanted or find a new opponent I'm sure.

I'm likely going to miss this game unfortunately. This is the last weekend without a full slate of football for a while so I'm sure my wife will want to get as much work out of me as possible. I'll probably have to clean the garage and work on the garden all day.

UCF-Penn State could potentially be cancelled because of an increased chance of an Icelandic volcano erupting. When this happened before over 100K flights to Europe were cancelled. It's still unlikely but it's possible.
