Get Your Very Own BYU Football National Championship Shirt
Hey UCF, Boise State, Tulane, and Utah…there’s only one ‘little guy’ to go all the way and win the National Championship!
Remember the glory days of Cougar Football by rocking a 1984 National Championship t-shirt!
UCF is still doing everything in their marketing power to tell themselves they are the National Champions in 2017. They are trying to lay claim to being the first National Champ from outside the Power Five conferences since…you guessed it, BYU in NiiiiineteeenEightyFour!
There’s no claiming here, BYU was and is the 1984 National Champions, and that will never be taken away from them.
After coming off a 4-9 football season, we need to remember the glory days by purchasing this awesome National Championship t-shirt from BreakingTCo to let your Ute friends know that they might have Power Five affiliation, but they’ll never have a natty.
BYU defeated Michigan in the 1984 Holiday Bowl, 24-17. The Cougars were stuck playing 6-5 Michigan after numerous teams turned down invitations from the Holiday Bowl to create a National Championship game against the Cougars. Oklahoma, Washington, South Carolina all turned down the opportunity to take on BYU, and they all declined. BYU did what they were supposed to do, and they were rewarded with a National Championship.
The 1984 National Championship is the genesis of why we have the College Football Playoff today. The powers that be never wanted a program outside of their club to ever win it again. BYU brought change to a sport that we all love.
