Some teams measure success based on the number of national championships they've won throughout the years, as for some teams, they are just satisfied with a consolation prize.

Since the Auburn Tigers defeated the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide in  back-to-back, the Tigers were a game away from making their first appearance in the College Football Playoffs. However, the Bulldogs had other plans in the SEC Championship game and got their revenge on the Tigers to eventually set up a match in the national championship game between the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide.

But what about the Tigers? After defeating the two teams that are in the national championship game, what do they get in return? The Tigers received a trip to Atlanta as well, but unfortunately for them it was against the UCF Knights in the Sugar Bowl, and lets just say that game didn't turn out well for the Tigers either.

So while Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide hold up their 17th national championship, and the UCF Knights are holding parades for imaginary ones, what could the Auburn Tigers claim for their season? A state championship and a SEC West ring.

The Auburn Tigers are collecting rings not for national championship, not for conference championships, but for state and divisional championships. Now Alabama has claimed SEC West championships as well, they just find another way to use the according to former Alabama fullback and host of The BlitzMartin Houston.

And never to be outdone, the team to beat the Auburn Tigers in Atlanta the UCF Knights continue to claim their very on national championship, and they want to make sure you know it every time you dial 911 in the Orlando area when Alabama faces off with the Louisville Cardinals in September.
