UCF fans erect blllboard in Alabama suggesting home-and-home series

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

A group of fans is trying to convince Alabama to schedule a home-and-home with UCF, and they're doing so with a billboard in Tuscaloosa.

The electronic billboard spot features an image from the Knights' Peach Bowl win over Auburn and text that reads "Congratulations Alabama!"

Florida Gov. Rick Scott even signed a proclamation Monday before the College Football Playoff National Championship, declaring UCF the national champions.

Look at those teeth". - American alligators are proving why they are considered survival machines during the winter weather. Once it becomes warm and the ice melts, the creatures will thermoregulate their body temperatures to their regular state.

Six voters in the final Associated Press poll voted UCF as the top football team in America.

As the only team to finish the year undefeated, the Knights declared themselves national champions, going as far as to raise a banner, hold a parade, and send the team to Disney World to celebrate.

Alabama won the College Football Playoff national championship game with a thrilling 26-23 overtime victory against Georgia. It was enough for UCF's athletic director, too: Danny White confirmed that the school was paying the team's assistant coaches bonuses for winning the title. "I mean, I'm fine with it", he went on. The Knights beat the Crimson Tide 40-38 on October 28, 2000, in Tuscaloosa. A future meeting of the teams would do nothing to change the outcome of 2017, but it'd still be fun, and fun things are good.
