College football world rejoices after LSU snaps UCF's 25-game winning streak
Well, it was fun while it lasted.
The undefeated UCF Knights made it 25 games without a loss, and gave LSU all it could handle on Tuesday in the Fiesta Bowl, but came up just short in a 40-32 loss.
The Knights have been talking a lot over the past couple of years, and now the Tigers have taken them down a peg with a strong performance.
On Twitter after the game, fans reveled in the Knights’ loss. As you can see below, there were plenty of people saying UCF couldn’t hang in the SEC or any other Power 5 conferences if they had to play the tough schedules week in and week out:
Looks like there won’t be a Disney World parade in celebration of a fake national title this year #UCF

UCF would be lucky to go 7-5 in the SEC

UCF has lost the “National Championship Game” to 9-3 LSU 40-32. UCF doesn’t schedule good teams and now we know why: They can’t beat the good teams! #FiestaBowl

So much for UCF belonging in the national championship discussion. Something tells me this wont shut them up though

Game over. Goodnight UCF. You’ve been entertaining. Don’t wanna hear another word. You got beat by a third string scout defence. Third string SEC. You don’t belong. GATORNATION IS THE BEST COLLEGE TEAM IN FLORIDA.

2 things we learned from the Fiesta Bowl this year:
1. LSU > Auburn
2. SEC > All other conferences
UCF can now shut the heck up!#ThankYouLSU

Alright, good. We don’t have to worry about the UCF argument for two more years.
