College football team follows UCF model and declares itself ‘national champion’ after season 9-3

Adam spencer | 3 hours ago

A few years ago, the UCF Knights declared themselves National Champions after ending an unbeaten season with a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn.

Well, apparently you don’t have to go 13-0 like the Knights to declare yourself national champion.

As you can see below, Florida A&M was named National Champion for the 2021 HBCU season after finishing atop the HBCU power rankings on NCAA.com:

Florida A&M lost to Jackson State, USF and Southeast Louisiana, the last of those 3 losses being in the first round of the FCS playoffs.

So, yes, it’s safe to say that fans had questions about the designation of “national champions”:

It seems likely that other HBCU schools will have something to say about this bold statement from Florida A&M.
