UCF sign challenges Alabama to home-and-home series

UCF sign challenges Alabama to home-and-home series

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. The Colley Matrix, which was one of the six computer formulas used in the BCS, instead ended the season with undefeated UCF as the No. 1 team. Before the Auburn game, the Knights beat their only other Power Five opponent, Maryland, 38-10.

After a nail-biting National Championship game Monday, the Crimson Tide defeated the Georgia Bulldogs 26-23 in overtime.

The party, which will include a pep rally for the self-proclaimed national champions, is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. and is expected to last three hours. "How about a home & home series with UCF?" The group, however, missed deadlines, so the fans changed the ad and the made arrangements to put the sign near the University of Alabama.

The Tide are legit champions, but their resume isn't that different than UCF's. UCF received the other four and finished with the best ranking in the history of the program.

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.

But before you dismiss UCF and Bama outright, believe it or not, they've played before. 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.
