UCF Fans Buy Billboard in Tuscaloosa Challenging Alabama to Play Their Team

UCF's successful season and demonstrated ability to defeat an SEC opponent has led to spirited debate about expanding the four-team CFP. A billboard has gone up in Tuscaloosa, allegedly paid for by UCF fans and it's sure to be noticed.

The University of Central Florida has beaten Auburn.

The electronic billboard spot features an image from the Knights' Peach Bowl win over Auburn and text that reads "Congratulations Alabama! How about a home & home series with UCF?"

It's likely UCF's plight influenced many voters to take a closer look at the Knights' accomplishments, which had been largely disregarded by the College Football Playoff Committee during the regular season.

The rankings rewarded UCF for being the only undefeated team in the country, and some of UCF's wins rank out better in the Colley Matrix than they do in other systems. Saban joins the late Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant as the only coaches with five AP titles.

"Thanks to the City of Orlando and Mayor Dyer for helping make this national championship celebration special for our student-athletes and fans", Knights athletic director Danny White said in a release from the school.

ATLANTA (AP) - Alabama was voted No. 1 in the final Associated Press college football poll after the Crimson Tide beat Georgia in the national championship game on Monday night. SEC fans can laugh all they want, but you can't argue with UCF until Alabama beats them. In the end, it's all in good fun, from one 2017 national champion to another.
