Zot! ZoT!! ZOT!!! -- UC Irvine 79 Stanford 63

Shocking, just shocking!

The Anteaters slay 13th-ranked Stanford 79-63!

The Anteaters, picked to finish in the middle of the conference in both pre-season media and coaches polls, usually has a California located Pac-10 school in its pre-conference schedule. A couple of years back I remember the Anteaters just barely lost to the Bruins though that year the Bruins were in decline.

Cal State Fullerton is the current favorite in the coaches and media poll to win the Big West. The conference has taken a bit of a reputation hit in losing Utah State and Idaho to the Western Athletic Conference. Nonetheless, the Big West, a lower mid-major conference, did have one victory in the NCAA last year when University of Pacific won its first round game.

The Big West doesn't get much media love but this year it will get a little bit more as all eight teams have been invited to participate in ESPN's Bracket Buster to be held on February 18, 2006.

Stay tuned and Rip'em eaters, Zot, Zot, Zot!
