UCF conducted a very public national championship campaign after its Peach Bowl win over Auburn — a team who, every Central Floridian would happily reminded you, was the only team to beat national title game participants Georgia and Alabama head of Monday night’s game.
But the national championship has now come and gone.
Scott Frost has moved on to his duties with Nebraska, and new Knights head coach Josh Heupel has begun making hires.
The Crimson Tide actually does open its 2018 season in Orlando, but against Louisville, not UCF.
UCF fans won’t get their shot at Bama, but they do have this piece of consolation: UCF won the only meeting between the two programs, a 40-38 win over the Tide in Tuscaloosa on Oct. 28, 2000.
