UCF coaches to receive national championship bonus

Was this Nick Saban's finest moment? UCF coaches to receive national championship bonus
Noah Ferguson | 12 January, 2018, 22:00

Georgia OT Isaiah Wynn and Alabama OT Jonah Williams were both all-SEC selections. Georgia is searching for its first national championship since 1980, second overall, in its first trip to the playoff.

StubHub said demand for tickets to the national championship game was up 106 percent over this time last year, when Clemson and Alabama were set to play for the second straight year and the game was in Tampa, Florida.

It did not, however, cost the Crimson Tide a playoff spot.

Jalen Hurts #2 of the Alabama Crimson Tide throws a pass against the Clemson Tigers in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game at Raymond James Stadium on January 9, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. Did Alabama deserve the benefit of the doubt after a season in which it was low on marquee victories? The final 7-1 mark was highlighted by a 3-0 mark in New Years Six games with Ohio State dominating Pac-12 champion USC in the Cotton Bowl, Penn State holding off Washington in the Fiesta Bowl, and Wisconsin taking control of Miami in the Orange Bowl.

Central Florida athletic director Danny White announced Wednesday the program will claim a national championship and raise a banner in Spectrum Stadium for the team's flawless season.

Georgia RBs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel against Alabama's top-ranked run defense, led by NT Da'Ron Payne. "We've been there before and hopefully we can get the same outcome, but we've got a lot of preparation to do before that". Georgia coach Kirby Smart could become the first of Nick Saban's former assistants to beat him as a head coach. There is some merit to that, but the SEC will counter by overlooking a losing bowl record and focusing on having two teams in the national championship game. They have also not beaten Alabama since 2007, Saban's first season in Tuscaloosa. They prefer to get down and dirty and play the physical style Alabama is known for playing, but can also open it up when they need to - as they showed in the Rose Bowl when quarterback Jake Fromm led them down to tie the game at the end of regulation.

"It's insane. This is what we all came back for", said Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter, who blocked a field goal in the second overtime of the Bulldogs' victory against Oklahoma. "We all have been working hard and this is what we were working toward".
