UCF continues to surprise me. I would have never guessed this team would win four Big 12 games. Now they are still towards the bottom of the league, but I think they are exceeding everyone's expectations.

The Knights just took down another great opponent, this time it was No. 23 Oklahoma. This team is showing other schools they are not a layup and they will give you everything they have. Now, they did lose a game against Baylor that they and a handle on, and late in the game just let it go. So while they are playing better than most people thought, they still have a lot they could do better.

Big 12 teams have been put on notice that when you come to play in Orlando, you are going to be stepping into a hostile environment. The fans show up and show out every time, so they want everyone to be warned.
