Scott Frost Denied Entrance To Press Box At National Championship

Scott Frost, who led UCF to an undefeated record this season before leaving to accept the Nebraska football team’s head coaching job, is in Atlanta for tonight’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Unfortunately, he’s still getting no respect from the College Football Playoff after initially being denied entry to the press box.

According to Anthony Dasher of, Frost was initially turned away when he tried to join the media for the pre-game meal.

Eventually, Frost was allowed into the press box as a discussion about expanding the playoff field to eight teams ironically loomed on a television playing ESPN in the background.

Frost was simply turned away at first because he did not have the proper credential.

Scott Frost is not being allowed into the press box right now. So much for that national championship. #antiUCFbias

UCF getting no respect, still. Scott Frost was just told he’s not allowed in the press box because he didn’t have the proper credentials. (Unclear if they meant resume or actual physical credential.)

Luckily, everything got sorted out and he was allowed to enjoy the pre-game feast. After all, we know media buffets are one of the best perks of the job.

Kickoff between Alabama and Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
