UCF trolls Alabama after Crimson Tide moves practice to Knights indoor facility
UCF finally put its “National Champions” banner to good use Saturday morning.
Alabama, who’s playing Michigan in the upcoming Citrus Bowl, had to practice at UCF’s indoor facility due to forecasted rain in Orlando. So, UCF took another opportunity to remind everyone of its 2017 undefeated football season on social media. The Knights finished 13-0 during that season beating Auburn in the Peach Bowl 34-27.
That offseason, UCF’s marketing play and brand was known around the entire county, and the school even held a national title parade at Disney World.
Following the news that the Tide’s practice had been moved to UCF, the Knights released a short video on Twitter showcasing their “National Champions” banner and welcoming Alabama to “The Kingdom.”

Regardless of how one views UCF, you have to appreciate the pettiness.
The actual College Football Playoff champions during the 2017 season? Alabama, of course, beat Georgia 26-23 in the national championship.
