  • SEC commissioner Greg Sankey says UCFs have a Playoff path, but…

Georgia's Deandre Baker knocks the ball away from Alabama's Calvin Ridley during the second half of Monday's national championship game Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, in Atlanta.

UCF athletic director Danny White and Gov. Rick Scott have proclaimed the Knights as national champions.

Following the Tide's victory, UCF fans paid for a billboard on McFarland Boulevard in Tuscaloosa congratulating Alabama and challenging them to a home-and-home series with the Knights. Auburn, coincidentally, is the only team that beat the Tide in their title-winning season.

Trump admin ends protections for 200000 Salvadorans
The original designation was granted to El Salvadorans in the U.S.in 2001 after a series of earthquakes. Mario Diaz-Balart quickly released a statement in "strong disagreement" with the administration.

The sign reads, "Congratulations Alabama!" Then, underneath that, it says, "How about a home & home series with UCF?"

The Knights finished their season 13-0, sealing perfection with a 34-27 win against Auburn on January 1 in the Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. UCF finished the season 13-0 and were ranked 6th in the final College Football Playoff Standings. Saban joins the late Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant as the only coaches with five AP titles. "Doesn't mean anything to anybody but them". SEC fans can laugh all they want, but you can't argue with UCF until Alabama beats them. The Knights defeated the Crimson Tide 40-38 back in 2000 in the first and only meeting between the two schools. 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.
