Alabama tops final AP poll; UCF 6th with 4 first-place votes

Florida representative interrupts C-SPAN coverage to honor UCF

A billboard has gone up in Tuscaloosa, allegedly paid for by UCF fans and it's sure to be noticed.

UCF finished with the only flawless season in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. For now, though, Alabama is the sport's official recognized national champion.

The Knights beat Auburn in the Peach Bowl. All of this was established before the Knights went out and beat the Auburn Tigers, staking a legitimate claim to the title.

In the week following UCF's Peach Bowl victory there has been significant debate about whether the Knights should be considered national champs.

The billboard reads: "Congratulations Alabama!"




The Knights felt left out of the College Football Playoff picture, a picture that eventually developed into Alabama winning the national championship for the 17th time, and the fifth time in the Saban era. Then, underneath that, it says, "How about a home & home series with UCF?"

UCF had been ranked No. 10 in the post-championship game AP Top 25.

If UCF and Alabama played this year, the Tide would've been favorites, as they are against every team they play.

But the real reason this is amusing is because it's so upsetting to all the hardos out there who refuse to recognize the fact that UCF had the best season in college football, at least on paper. In the end, it's all in good fun, from one 2017 national champion to another.
