A screenshot of an AP Poll vote.

Here are the four voters who had UCF ranked No. 1 instead of Alabama.

Alabama beat Georgia in the College Football Playoff national title game on Monday night, but the Crimson Tide weren't the only team that received No. 1 votes in the AP Poll.

The final AP Poll top 25 was released early this morning and 13-0 UCF received four first-place votes out of the possible 61.

Here are the four voters who had the Knights ranked No. 1:

  • Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald
  • Safid Deen of the Orlando Sentinel
  • Ryan Aber of The Oklahoman
  • Ed Daigneault of the Republican-American

UCF, which ended its season with a win over Auburn in the Peach Bowl, came in at No. 6 in the actual poll, behind Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Clemson and Ohio State.

As mentioned earlier, No. 1 was the highest any individual voter ranked them, while No. 10 was the lowest anyone ranked them.
