UCF challenges Alabama to game with Tuscaloosa billboard


Yes, that is a billboard in Tuscaloosa - paid for by UCF fans - essentially challenging Alabama to a home-and-home series with the Knights.

Alabama is your national champion.

So it's unlikely that Alabama will all of a sudden grant a random "We Want Bama" request to play UCF in a home-and-home series.

This season, the Auburn Tigers beat both the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide, who are playing in the last game of the College Football Playoff.

In the week following UCF's Peach Bowl victory there has been significant debate about whether the Knights should be considered national champs. UCF went 14-0 and used its perch as the country's lone unbeaten team to claim the national title for itself, which is fine and good.

The team finished its season with a flawless record, unlike Alabama, but because its opponents were deemed too weak, the school missed the playoff to decide the official national champion.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the billboard is the work of 37 UCF fans.

The UCF Knights finished the season a ideal 13-0 after defeating the Auburn Tigers in the Peach Bowl. For what it's worth, the state of Florida will also recognize the Knights as champions after Gov. Rick Scott declared them so.

Some on social media made fun of the sign, but UCF is actually 1-0 against the Crimson Tide, having beaten them 40-38 in Tuscaloosa in 2000.
