UCF got the college football community’s attention this week when the school publicly claimed a national championship. The Knights went 11-0 in a regular-season schedule shortened due to Hurricane Irma, won the AAC Championship Game over Memphis and defeated Auburn in the Peach Bowl. Alabama and Georgia, the two teams competing for the College Football Playoff championship, both suffered a regular-season loss to Auburn.

The Knights will reportedly be hanging a championship banner to mark the 13-0 season.

Scott Frost, who accepted the job at Nebraska in December but coached the Knights against Auburn on New Year’s Day, was asked about his former school Saturday at the reception recognizing him as Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year. Frost handled the question diplomatically, somewhat distancing himself from the national championship campaign, but stating he understands the “why” behind it.

Frost also used the media opportunity to advocate for Group of 5 teams when it comes to the CFP. Frost opined that UCF was intentionally ranked lower as a way to keep the Knights out of consideration for the final four.
