WATCH: Joel Klatt explains why there should be 'no circumstance' in which UCF makes the CFP
As long as UCF keeps winning, the team’s fans won’t stop talking about how the Knights deserve a shot at the College Football Playoff.
Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt doesn’t think that should be possible, and he broke down why in a video segment posted to Twitter on Friday. Klatt first responded to UCF athletic director Danny White for his letter to the College GameDay crew, then he used a popular ratings system to show why he thinks the Knights are nowhere close to being a top-four team.
"You under no circumstance, UCF, would fall under that umbrella as one of the four best teams in the country."

UCF has won 20 straight games, including against Auburn in last year’s Peach Bowl. Still, Klatt’s had a response to the big winning streak and the Knights’ performance as the Group of 5 representative in a New Year’s Six bowl.
“None of that means that you deserve inclusion into the four-team College Football Playoff,” he said.
Klatt has made his stance clear, but do you think UCF deserves to be considered for the Playoff?
