Of course, it's not going to happen - at least not this year - but there's a chance it could happen in the future if UCF fans get their way.

"With an undefeated record and a win over a top-10 team in the Peach Bowl, we were left no other choice but to name them national champs", Richard Ingram, President of Womack Publishing Company, said at the time.

The official College Football Playoff National Championship was also played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. By having a flawless season and beating the only team that defeated both Alabama and Georgia this season, the UCF Knights are clearly champions.

"Florida is home to the country's best college football, and this season, UCF proved to the world that they can beat any team".

Bears to hire Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator
He went 37-16 over four seasons, leading OR to the first College Football Playoff championship game after the 2014 season. He was the head coach of OR from 2013-2016, a tenure which started with great success but tailed off towards the end.

The sign reads, "Congratulations Alabama!"

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.

UCF's 13-0 flawless season will culminate with the highest ranking in school history. It's top five is UCF, Alabama, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Ohio State. Rick Scott issued a proclamation declaring the Knights as national champions as well.

White has been consistent in his thinking that the college football bowl system needs a revamp. "This year it wasn't settled on the field and I think it's hard in most years probably for it to be settled on the field when it's a subjective process and there are only four teams that are allowed to be a part of the playoffs".
