Uber is offering free rides to all new users thanks to the UCF football team's winless season.

It seems Uber is following the lead of The Basement, which started the trend by offering free beer until UCF wins back in Sept.  According to their Facebook, the bar has dished out 6,430 free beers as of Oct. 20. 

New users can access this special deal by entering the code "KNIGHTSWIN" when they sign up.

The Knights lost 59-10 against Houston during their homecoming game and are currently 0-8 this season. On top of this losing streak, head coach George O'Leary resigned shortly after the homecoming loss to accelerate UCF's search for his successor.

There are only four more opportunities left in the season for the Knights to win a game.
