As if the banners and a “championship parade” weren’t enough, University of Central Florida football fans may soon have license plates to further commemorate their self-proclaimed national championship season.

The license plate features the Knights’ logo and says “Undefeated Champions,” which is something of a comedown from what the plates were reportedly supposed to say: “National Champions.”

The plates are part of the large transportation bill that was passed by the Florida House on Monday, but still lacks approval by the Florida Senate. Also included in the bill: Florida specialty license plates for Auburn University, the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia. Each plate will cost $25.

UCF defeated Auburn 34-27 in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Jan. 1, making the Knights the only FBS team to remain undefeated (13-0.)

UCF was ranked sixth in the final Associated Press rankings.
