UCF AD says school will hang national championship banner

Central Florida finished the 2017 season as the only undefeated team in college football, and the school has decided it will claim a national championship.

And you’re going to see it.

According to 96.9 The Game, UCF athletic director Danny White said the school will be hanging a championship banner at Spectrum Stadium.

While appearing on The Dan Le Batard Show, White said UCF plans to celebrate the 13-0 campaign with a parade. Tom Schad of USA Today shared White’s comments.

“Hopefully in the coming days, a lot more people will become believers, as well. We’re going to continue to promote the fact that we feel like we’re deserving of a national championship.”

Alabama and Georgia are preparing for the official championship game, and the winner is almost certain to receive the No. 1 spot in final polls.

Technically, though, voters could choose UCF as the top-ranked team. The Knights wrapped up their year with a 34-27 Peach Bowl victory over Auburn, the only program to beat either Alabama or Georgia this season.

While a No. 1 slot probably isn’t going to happen, that’s not going to stop UCF from celebrating the only perfect record of 2017.
