Billboard asks Alabama if it wants to play UCF

From ESPN - January 10, 2018

UCF fans bought a billboard advertisement in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, congratulating the University of Alabama for winning the national championship on Monday and asking if the Crimson Tide would like to play their team.

Thirty-seven fans of the team raised $1,665 on a GoFundMe page to pay for a digital billboard ad that reads, "Congratulations Alabama. How about a home & home series with UCF?"

"We felt like this year's team could run with anyone in the country, and the Peach Bowl win [over Auburn] proved that," said Sean Barakett, who added that he contributed $100 toward the campaign. "All we needed was a chance to play harder opponents."
