Championship Game

UCF over Memphis

**Memphis has tie-breaker over Houston (H2H)**


For the third straight year the Championship game is UCF v Memphis. For the third straight year UCF beats Memphis in the championship game and goes to a NY6 bowl.

UCF continues their run of dominance through the AAC. However with a tougher schedule this year they likely stumble 1-2 times. If UCF is able to run the table this year with Pitt and Stanford having good seasons, this could be a year when they are able to get into the playoffs. 13-0 Conference Champs with 2 wins over top 25 Power 5 teams is a pretty solid resume. Especially if one of the AAC conference opponents is able to get into the top 25 as well (Several could).

UCF finishes in top 25. No other team gets votes for top 25. 6 bowl teams.
