College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock is saying that even the currently undefeated Knights will have a shot at making the final four at the end of the season if they continue to keep winning on the field.
“Yes, there is a path,” Hancock told the AP. “UCF got full consideration from the committee last year. I believe the committee at the end of the season had ranked UCF higher than the sports writers and the coaches had. So they got every consideration and they had a wonderful season.”
It remains a rough road for the Knights to elbow out the Alabama’s, Clemson’s and Georgia’s of the world when the selection committee meets and decides on their weekly rankings but for a team with the nation’s longest winning streak currently at 16 games.
