When UCF athletic director Danny White declared after his football team’s Peach Bowl victory over Auburn that he considered the undefeated Knights the true national champions, it sounded like a cute, light-hearted rallying cry. As it turned out, White and company were not joking. Not even a little.
UCF has spent the past 48 hours declaring itself national champion on Twitter and demanding a matchup with the Georgia-Alabama winner. The Knights have also announced they will hold a parade at Disney World to celebrate their supposed title, and hinted at plans for other celebrations as well.
