Former BCS poll has UCF ranked No. 1 over Alabama

Former BCS poll has UCF ranked No. 1 over Alabama

Auburn, coincidentally, is the only team that beat the Tide in their title-winning season. UCF claims it is the true national champion because it's the only undefeated team on the FBS level. The school has since declared itself the 2017 national champions - and are celebrating as such.

The Crimson Tide received 57 of 61 first-place votes from the media panel after its 26-23 overtime victory Monday night.

It certainly would be fun to see how UCF would stack up against the Crimson Tide, but that won't happen this season. And you gotta hand it to UCF fans for trying.

The University of Alabama may have won the college football national championship, but University of Central Florida fans believe they earned the title with their undefeated season.

Alabama hasn't played a non-conference home-and-home since it played Penn State in 2010 and 2011. Instead, UCF might have better luck scheduling a neutral-site game against Alabama.

Challenging Bama has always been a tradition of fans that believe their team doesn't get the respect it deserves on a national scale, with signs reading "WE WANT BAMA!" seen at nearly every stop ESPN's "College Gameday" makes throughout the season. And it's kind of a shame, really.

UCF's 13-0 ideal season will culminate with the highest ranking in school history. They already have games against Duke, Southern Miss and New Mexico State on the docket in 2019 and Georgia State and Kent State in 2020.
