The feud is still going strong. Even after the Alabama Crimson Tide won the national championship Monday night, UCF still is making their point known that they deserve to have the right to compete for that.
Following the championship, UCF fans bought a billboard where they asked Alabama for a home and home series down the road.

Thirty-seven fans donated to a GoFundMe campaign in order to do this.
“We felt like this year’s team could run with anyone in the country, and the Peach Bowl win [over Auburn] proved that,” said Sean Barakett, who said that he contributed $100 toward the campaign. “All we needed was a chance to play harder opponents.”
UCF finished its season 12-0 and defeated Auburn 34-27 in the Peach Bowl to complete a perfect season.
Danny White, UCF athletic director, also dubbed the Knights national champions and scheduled a parade and Disney World to celebrate.
Head coach Scott Frost, who led the team to a perfect season this year, was recently hired as the head coach for Nebraska and will not be with the program anymore.
