Betting experts say Alabama would be multi-touchdown favorite over UCF

  • SEC commissioner Greg Sankey says UCFs have a Playoff path, but…

The team finished its season with a flawless record, unlike Alabama, but because its opponents were deemed too weak, the school missed the playoff to decide the official national champion. Auburn, coincidentally, is the only team that beat the Tide in their title-winning season.

Yes, that is a billboard in Tuscaloosa - paid for by UCF fans - essentially challenging Alabama to a home-and-home series with the Knights.

"Florida is home to the country's best college football, and this season, UCF proved to the world that they can beat any team". The group, however, missed deadlines, so the fans changed the ad and the made arrangements to put the sign near the University of Alabama.

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. Head coach Scott Frost left the school to coach at Nebraska, which is his alma mater.

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

Auburn had already beaten both Georgia and Alabama, who would go on to play in the "National Championship Game" on Monday, Jan. 8.

If UCF and Alabama played this year, the Tide would've been favorites, as they are against every team they play. 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. In the end, it's all in good fun, from one 2017 national champion to another.
