UCF fans pay for billboard to challenge Alabama to game

Barakett said the original idea was to put a billboard in Atlanta, where the national championship game was held Monday.

The team finished its season with a ideal record, unlike Alabama, but because its opponents were deemed too weak, the school missed the playoff to decide the official national champion. All of this was established before the Knights went out and beat the Auburn Tigers, staking a legitimate claim to the title. The Knights are the first bowl-eligible team to finish the season undefeated and not win a national title since TCU in 2010.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the billboard is the work of 37 UCF fans.

The electronic billboard spot features an image from the Knights' Peach Bowl win over Auburn and text that reads "Congratulations Alabama!" Then, underneath that, it says, "How about a home & home series with UCF?"

UCF's 13-0 flawless season will culminate with the highest ranking in school history. Alabama ranks No. 2 in that poll, followed by Wisconsin, Georgia and Ohio State. Meanwhile, Central Florida had gone 13-0 on the season but was left out of the four-team College Football Playoff due to the "quality of their schedule". Rick Scott issued a proclamation declaring the Knights as national champions as well.

"I think for us to have a true national champion, it should be settled on the field", White told the Orlando Sentinel. "All we needed was a chance to play harder opponents".
