    UCF certainly has been getting a lot of attention along the I 4 Corridor. Their stadium is about 5 years, maybe a little more, old and it's capacity is about 45,000. And I understand this game is sold out. I'm not sure if the Knights have had a sell-out before or not. This is a important game for them. I'm glad it's early on Saturday. It's one I would like to see.

    Interesting in that USF is about an hour to the West of me and UCF is about an hour to the East. And they both seem to be going in opposite directions right now. Just a few years ago the Bulls were making a progress and heading up. That had a good QB in Matt Groethe. They even made it in the Top 10 once. But since have been in a slide.

    The Knights on the other hand seemed to have struggled in recent years but they seem to have been getting it turned around. So far this season they are 3-0. I understand they have a pretty good QB in Blake Bortles. So far I haven't seen him play so I'm interested in seeing how he looks on the field. The Knights sure will have a big test in going up against Spurrier and the Gamecocks. Surprise UCF got this as their home game. Don't know how they were able to do it.

    Living 15 min from ucf campus, there is a buzz here about it for sure. Lots of confidence that they can pull this upset off.

    I can just imagine. Do you know if it's true that the game is a sell-out? Wouldn't surprise me of course .

    Brian Griese picked the Gamecocks.

    Mark May put them on "upset alert". He thinks it possible for Knigts to win this game!

    The 2007 game against Texas was definitely a sell-out. Good game too. 35-32 Texas.

    Lou Holtz didn't make a pick but he certainly is impressed with Knight QB Blake Bortles.

    USC will focus on JJ Whorton, so look for Godfrey to have a big day. Bortles will need to get rid of the ball fast and run when necessary.

    Corso and Herbstreit said a lot of good things about UCF.
    Then they picked USC.

    Knights won the toss and chose to receive. Brought the ball out to the 20.

    Connor Shaw left the field with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. Obviously in a lot of pain .
