Gov. Rick Scott declares UCF national champions”

Governor Rick Scott has declared the University of Central Florida's football team as national champions in Florida after their undefeated season. Even though the current College Football Playoff contract runs through 2025, there remains a faction that believes the playoff field should include eight teams - the five Power 5 conference champions and three at-large participants, which might include a school the size of UCF.

Unfortunately, he's still getting no respect from the College Football Playoff after initially being denied entry to the press box.

UCF fans, celebrating the self-proclaimed national champion Knights, began the infamous chant that was heard throughout Penn State and other schools earlier this season.

Detractors say that would mean too many games for the players.

Eventually, Frost was allowed into the press box as a discussion about expanding the playoff field to eight teams ironically loomed on a television playing ESPN in the background.

"The national championship will be played Monday night, Jan. 8, in Atlanta, Georgia", Sankey said.

Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi wrote Saturday that UCF deserves to be called national champs, while adding that the city of Orlando will take a championship any way it can get one.

Luckily, everything got sorted out and he was allowed to enjoy the pre-game feast.

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