The Knights are now the first Group of Five team to make it into the top-10 of these rankings, and there’s a good chance they’ll rise even higher if they win out.
UCF finds its way into the top 10 of the College Football Playoff rankings. First G5 school to do so.

Some will argue that UCF deserves to be ranked even higher, but at this point this ranking has to be seen as a huge win for the program.
Here are some of the reactions to this latest development.

Though, not everyone was thrilled about UCF jumping Ohio State.
Ohio State would smash UCF. Please make a proper playoff. Pretty please. With a sugar on top
