ESPN’s College GameDay is live from UCF for the first time ever

 in the show’s history ,
and Knights fans were fired up on Saturday morning. Naturally, there were a ton
of signs directed towards the College Football Playoff, where the Knights
haven’t been ranked very high despite having gone undefeated since last season.
UCF fans have brought signs to GameDay for the last few weeks and been
aggressive about promoting their team all year.Does this sign pass the eye
test?Some timely jokes in reference to Florida’s recount election: OK this is so
good: A shame!UCF wants Bama.UCF wants to play everybody, too. What’re
those?!Lee Corso also said this live on air: Naturally, Florida schools got some
signs, too. As a Florida grad, I even respect this: UCF’s former coach Scott
Frost got some, too. Remember when UCF went 0-12 in 2015?Speaking of 22-0! UCF’s
mascot is a Knight, not a Golden Knights! Some Ohio shade appeared: More Office
references! Thank u, next. Speaking of Ariana Grande! LOL:

looking for seventh straight game with at least 50 yards rushing. Newton rushed

catches in last four NFC South road games. ... TE Ian Thomas expected to make
first NFL start for Greg Olsen (broken foot). ... FB Alex Armah scored first NFL

Takkarist McKinley aiming for fourth straight game with sack, including
postseason. ... CB Robert Alford has three INTs, 12 pass deflections in last
four outings against Carolina. ... LB Vic Beasley Jr., has four sacks and forced
fumble in six career games against Panthers. Fantasy tip: After being held
without TD pass last week, Ryan is good pick for big game at home, where he
enjoys consistent success. Jones is Ryan's obvious lead target, but Mohamed Sanu
has 13 catches for 154 yards, TD, in last two home games and could be smart
pickup. RB Tevin Coleman could be smart plug-in after Devonta Freeman (knee)
missed practice time.
