Saban dismisses claim that UCF shares national title with Alabama
Shortly after UCF jumped two spots to No. 10 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 college football poll, the Knights took a shot for their ranking via social media.
The Athletic’s beat reporter covering Oklahoma, Jason Kersey, tweeted “in no world should UCF be ranked (ahead) of Oklahoma, Michigan and LSU.”
That created reactions from college football fans.
The Sooners dropped out of the top 10 after losing their rivalry game with Texas, while LSU’s loss to Florida dropped the Tigers from No. 5 to No. 13. Michigan was three spots behind UCF and crept to within two after last week’s slate.
UCF holds the nation’s longest Football Bowl Subdivision winning streak at 18 games, extending it last week after defeating SMU. The Knights attempted to join the Big 12 conference in 2016, but the Big 12 did not expand to include UCF.
