Don't call it an upset: South Florida just crushed West Virginia, stifling an offense thought to be unstoppable -- for the second year in a row. The Bulls played really really well. It wasn't that WVU was overrated; it was that USF was SO underrated.
Though they have been a rising team for years, South Florida is officially this season's national Cinderella. Undefeated. Suddenly the team to beat in the Big East. And, at least on my Top 25 ballot, a serious contender to vault from the teens into the Top...5? They sure look like it.
(For West Virginia, any shot at the national title is over. Crazy: West Virginia and Louisville -- the Big East's presumptive "national" contenders -- are done, replaced by South Florida and Rutgers. Lurking as the spoiler -- the "new South Florida," if you will -- is Cincinnati.)
