UCF fans react to being ranked No. 12 in the College Football Playoff
The first installment of the College Football Playoff Rankings came out Tuesday night.
The top 4 wasn’t that big of a surprise: 1. Alabama, 2. Clemson, 3. LSU and 4. Notre Dame.
Interestingly, UCF was ranked No. 12, just behind the two-loss Florida Gators.
UCF is and will continue to be a hot topic throughout the season, assuming the Knights continue to remain undefeated. While No. 12 is very solid, the schedule just hasn’t been there so far this season, as the Knights’ best win is over Memphis. Things improve starting this week against Temple.
UCF started at No. 18 in the debut Playoff poll last year; so, being ranked higher than 18 is a plus. Nevertheless, there’s still a ton of ground to make up in order to become the first Group of 5 team to make the Playoff.
Following the Playoff poll, UCF fans took social media:
12 is doable. I’m ok with it #UCF

SUPER HOT TAKE: With UCF at 12, if they beat a solid temple team, good cincy, USF and good Houston team, then there’s a door for them to make the playoff.

UCF at #12 means the committee are taking them far more seriously than their schedule alone deserves. That's going to be very interesting going forward.

UCF done dirty in the CFP rankings again. No respect #cfp

UCF is 21-0 in the last two seasons combined and is #12 in the CFP rankings. I’d rather the committee just say non power 5 has no chance than act like they do #AmericanFB

“12…good start…(#UCF) hasn’t played anyone. They haven’t.”
He’s 1000% correct.

UCF not being in the top of the initial CFP rankings is SAD! I demand that UCF gets the respect they deserve
