The UCF football program capped off an undefeated season on New Year’s Day with a with over the Auburn Tigers, a team that beat the two national championship participants, Alabama and Georgia, in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
As a result of their perfect campaign, the university is planning a special celebration.
According to athletic director Danny White, there is going to be a championship parade for the 13-0 Knight. White announced the news during an appearance on The Dan Le Batard Show.
“Hopefully in the coming days, a lot more people will become believers, as well,” White said. “We’re going to continue to promote the fact that we feel like we’re deserving of a national championship.”
The Knights never received their fair crack at the College Football Playoff despite an undefeated run, but they proved they deserve to be recognized as one of college football’s elite programs after knocking off the SEC runner-up.
And let’s be honest: A parade for a college football program in Orlando is going to be an incredible time.
