An anonymous Wikipedia user made a bold prediction for this year’s national title game, and Florida fans will be disappointed.
Visitors to the Wikipedia page for the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship on Friday found that the game’s participants, and the score, had already been decided. No. 1 Syracuse will defeat No. 2 Florida 44-24 on Jan. 9.
The anonymous editor (likely a Syracuse fan) had the Gators getting out to a 21-7 lead in the first quarter. However, the Orange will come roaring back to take a 28-24 lead at halftime before shutting out the Gators in the second half.
The victory caps a hypothetical 15-0 season for Syracuse and first-year head coach Dino Babers. The Gators, meanwhile, will finish the season 13-2.
The editor also made some other changes, including the site of the game. Instead of taking place in Tampa, Fla., Syracuse earned its fictional national championship at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Florida head coach Jim McElwain’s name was also misspelled.
The changes have since been taken down, but for a few minutes, Syracuse had its first national title since 1959.
