Who needs Power 5? UCF will soon have same playoff access as Gators, Noles, Canes | Commentary

For years and years, UCF’s fans, coaches and administration dreamed and schemed, plotted and planned, crusaded and campaigned to get a bid into one of college football’s Power 5 conferences, but now the Knights can finally stop shamelessly begging for that elusive invitation into one of the big-boy leagues.

Now, with the news that broke earlier this week that the College Football Playoff is likely expanding to 12 teams, a case could be made that UCF has just as good a chance of getting into a postseason playoff and competing for a national championship as the Florida Gators, the Florida State Seminoles or the Miami Hurricanes.
