New, 5 comments

What’s new? UCF is getting no love in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.

NCAA Football: American Athletic Conference Championship-Temple vs Navy Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Joe Talk is back with another AAC edition of the pawd, and we are excited to welcome our UCF writer Chas Short coming off a terrific game that we felt represented the conference well.

The College Football Playoff Committee apparently disagrees with us as the only moved the UCF Knights up one spot in the latest rankings (3:10).

They just need to admit that G5 schools have no shot (5:05) and do the G5 Playoff (6:55).

We debated why Fresno State is ranked ahead of USF (8:00) and compare the AAC to the Mountain West (12:05).

Chas gives us a description of the crowd during the War on I-4 (14:45) and we debate if it was the best rivalry game in Florida this season (20:30).

We then preview the AAC Championship game between Memphis and UCF and Joe asks whether the game should be played on a neutral site (25:00).

We end the show by going through the position groups for each team and making a case for which one is better (40:30). We end the show agreeing on one thing, we want to see UCF get this win, get a New Years Six Bowl and beat the hell out of whichever Big 12 team stands in their way.
