Fans get into the rocking rhythm when Zombie Nation is played over the loudspeakers. Some have nicknamed the new stadium “The Trampoline”.


Some spectators are worried that the bombardment of bouncing could be causing structural damage. But UCF officials and engineers say they’ve inspected the stadium, and The Trampoline appears to be safe.

Bright House Stadium will be bouncing again on Saturday, as a capacity crowd is expected to see the Golden Knights take on Tulsa in the Conference USA Championship Game.
