ORLANDO — Less than 20 miles away is the home of college football’s other national champion: Central Florida. And its presence was apparent inside and outside Camping World Stadium.
Snapchat had a filer that said “Welcome to Orlando” on the top of the screen and “Home of the 2017 Champs” at the bottom with a football in UCF’s colors next to the text. It was sponsored by RedditCFB.

Walking around the complex before the game, some local fans were seen wearing Knights apparel. UCF won its season opener Thursday against UConn, 56-17, on the road.
There was also a plane circling the stadium with a banner that read: UCF ’17 CO-NAT’L CHAMPS 13-0 # CHADBARRLAW.
