When: Monday, January 1, 12:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
Who: UCF Knights vs. Auburn Tigers
There is only one team that made it through the entire 3.5-month grind that is the college football season without a single loss, and that happens to be UCF. The Knights were arguably one of the best teams in the nation this year, but because they didn't play against any Power Five schools outside of Maryland, they were never taken seriously as CFP contenders.
Still, UCF beat the same number of Top 25 teams this year as Alabama did, yet the Crimson Tide were given the nod as the last team in the playoff in spite of the fact that the Knights had one fewer loss and one more conference championship.
Scott Frost is on his way to Nebraska to coach his alma mater, but before he leaves for good, he's going to have one last game with UCF at the Peach Bowl. Just the fact that he's breaking the mold and staying in Orlando through New Year's Day is a boost for the Knights, and that should keep them emotionally prepared for this challenge ahead.
Auburn was wondering for a while if it was going to have coaching problems, too. Gus Malzahn was linked to the Arkansas job, but even after losing the SEC Championship Game to Georgia and getting knocked from the CFP, he signed a new contract with the Tigers.
Auburn did lose three times this year, but it's hard to argue with a team that was beaten by Clemson, LSU and Georgia, two of the three of which are in the CFP. Still, Auburn didn't play well away from home all season long, getting its boost from Jordan-Hare Stadium in wins over both Georgia and Alabama. All three of its losses came either on the road or at neutral sites.
Remember that the last time UCF played in a big boy bowl game, it upset Baylor as more than a two-touchdown underdog in the Fiesta Bowl in the final game of Blake Bortles' career. This game isn't necessarily beyond the AAC champs.
The two teams to emerge from the semifinals will advance to the 2018 CFP National Championship game held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.
Opening Line: Auburn -9.5
Preview: The UCF Knights aren't going to get a chance to play for the National Championship, but they are going to get a chance to prove they belonged in the discussion. They're playing in a big boy bowl game for the second time in their history, and they're hoping that history repeats itself in the Peach Bowl against the Auburn Tigers. Continue...
