UCF fans buy Tuscaloosa billboard, make Crimson Tide an offer

Thousands expected at downtown Orlando block party for unbeaten UCF Knights Gov. Rick Scott declares UCF national champions

For now, though, Alabama is the sport's official recognized national champion. The Knights were the only undefeated FBS team this season.

There's only one way to settle this dispute, and that's on the field.

Text on the billboard says it was "created and paid for by UCF fans". So, they put up a billboard in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where the University of Alabama is located, asking Nick Saban and the Tide for a home-and-home series. The Knights finished the year 13-0 and defeated the only team to have beaten Alabama this season (as well as the only team to beat Georgia in the regular season), so they're calling themselves national champs.

James Franco Accused Of Sexual Misconduct By Five Women
A common theme among the accusers' stories was the belief that Franco would help their careers if they agreed to his wishes. This isn't the first time Franco has dealt with allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Alabama hasn't played a non-conference home-and-home since it played Penn State in 2010 and 2011. The non-conference games on Alabama's future schedules are either set for neutral sites (Louisville in Orlando, Duke and Miami in Atlanta) or Bryant-Denny Stadium.

UCF may "want Bama", but the Knights won't be getting the chance to upset the Crimson Tide. And it's kind of a shame, really. All of this was established before the Knights went out and beat the Auburn Tigers, staking a legitimate claim to the title.

But the real reason this is amusing is because it's so upsetting to all the hardos out there who refuse to recognize the fact that UCF had the best season in college football, at least on paper. Another game, against Georgia Tech, was canceled because of Hurricane Irma.
