Following a win in the All-State Peach Bowl, UCF Athletic Director Danny White crowned his football team National Champs after defeating Auburn 34-27. UCF finished a perfect season by going 13-0. The Knights entered the day and new year ranked 12 in the college football rankings and did not even get an invite to the college football playoffs, but that did not stop Danny White from crowing his team National Champions. White said..
“National Champs, Undefeated”
Maybe under a different format the Knights might have had a chance to compete for the national title, but under the current playoffs, they only got the chance to play in the Peach Bowl against Auburn.
