Alabama-UCF among 10 biggest national title discords of last 25 years

Alabama-UCF among 10 biggest national title discords of last 25 years

Auburn, coincidentally, is the only team that beat the Tide in their title-winning season.

A group of fans is trying to convince Alabama to schedule a home-and-home with UCF, and they're doing so with a billboard in Tuscaloosa. The Colley Matrix, which was one of the six computer formulas used in the BCS, instead ended the season with undefeated UCF as the No. 1 team.

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.

The electronic billboard spot features an image from the Knights' Peach Bowl win over Auburn and text that reads "Congratulations Alabama!"

Facebook Testing Local News & Events Section in its App
Now, it seems those publishers are nearly as out of luck as the phony publishers Facebook has tried to scrub from the News Feed. Zuckerberg has been laying the groundwork for making that fundamental shift in all of Facebook's products.

After a nail-biting National Championship game Monday, the Crimson Tide defeated the Georgia Bulldogs 26-23 in overtime. People are so upset with UCF crowning themselves national champions, and now people are even complaining about them getting first-place votes. Saban joins the late Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant as the only coaches with five AP titles. "I mean, I'm fine with it", he went on.

For Crimson Tide fans, it would be sweet to witness a possible rout by Alabama, if only to quiet the Knights' wild "national champions" talk.

But before you dismiss UCF and Bama outright, believe it or not, they've played before.
