But the Knights beat both Auburn and Georgia this season.

Thirty-seven fans of the team raised $1,665 on a GoFundMe page to pay for a digital billboard ad that reads, "Congratulations Alabama". UCF was crowned National Champions by the Colley Matrix.

Why you ask? UCF is also calling themselves national champs after capping off an undefeated regular season with a win over Auburn in the Peach Bowl.

Alabama hasn't played a non-conference home-and-home series since facing off with Penn State in 2010 and 2011.

This is the seventh appearance by Kane, who has 18 goals and 27 assists this season. Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane was named as his team's lone All-Star on Wednesday.

While the buzz continues over UCF's National Championship, a new ranking was released that left the Knights in the No. 1 position. If the Tide had beaten the Knights this year instead of trouncing Mercer 56-0, they wouldn't have been sweating the College Football Playoff committee's decision.

"I'm fine with it", Saban explained.

UCF fans bought a billboard advertisement in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, congratulating the University of Alabama for winning the national championship on Monday and asking if the Crimson Tide would like to play their team. But earlier this week, Bet The Board's Twitter account relayed word that a potential betting line for an Alabama-UCF matchup would place the Crimson Tide as 21-point favorites. A future meeting of the teams would do nothing to change the outcome of 2017, but it'd still be fun, and fun things are good.
