Alright @LeBatardShow, we’ll gladly accept the following: ⚔️ the National Championship 🏆you’re going to make ⚔️ that old fantasy football 🏆 that’s in the garage ⚔️ you not calling us Golden Knights ever again See you at the parade!

The 13-0 UCF Knights won't get an opportunity to earn college football's official national title this month, but that isn't stopping them from acting like champions.   

During an appearance on ESPN's The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz on Tuesday, UCF athletic director Danny White announced the university intends to hold a parade to honor the unbeaten Knights, per SB Nation's Richard Johnson.

"We're gonna have a parade to celebrate the success of our team," White stated. He also said plans for the parade would be made public later in the day. 

This isn't too surprising, as White declared UCF national champs following the school's 34-27 win over Auburn in the Peach Bowl on Monday:

If nothing else, it's clear UCF would like a shot at the winner of next Monday's championship game between Alabama and Georgia:
