And it’s not anyone from the Big Ten.
It’s not official yet, but next Monday’s College Football Playoff national title game is going to be an All-SEC showdown.
Georgia squeaked past Oklahoma in double-overtime at the Rose Bowl and Alabama is currently dominating Clemson in the Sugar Bowl.
So, this year’s national title game is going to feature the SEC’s No. 1 regular season team (Georgia) against its No. 3 regular season team (Alabama).
Much of the college football world is going to be annoyed by that.
Only one fan base has a right to be angry about it, though – UCF.
The Knights went undefeated this year and beat the SEC’s No. 2 regular season team, Auburn, in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Monday.
Sure, the Tigers probably weren’t as motivated as Scott Frost’s team, and if UCF had to play an ACC/Big Ten/SEC regular season schedule, it probably wouldn’t have gone undefeated.
Still, UCF is unbeaten, having defeated the team that beat both Alabama and Georgia, and next week, it’s going to have to watch the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs play for the national title.
Frost and Co. have a right to be upset about that.
