The Baylor Bears feel they have a case to make for the national championship, but it was the SEC's Auburn Tigers who made it based on quality wins. However, Baylor finished with only one loss and the Big 12 Championship, rewarded with a Fiesta Bowl appearance against the UCF Knights. According to ESPN on Jan. 1, this is a game the Bears can't overlook as UCF has won double-digit games in three of the last four years and head coach George O'Leary said it is about time the world took notice. Here is how fans can follow the Fiesta Bowl live stream coverage of tonight's game.

According to Coach O'Leary, when his UCF team won 10 games in three of the last four years, no one talked about them, and fewer people even knew. However, they won 11 games this season and all of a sudden, everyone noticed them. Of course, they broke the magical mark that allowed them into a BCS bowl, so that makes a difference.
Baylor will want to be careful as well. When the Oklahoma Sooners faced a mid-major Boise State Broncos team a few years back, they fell in a major upset. The Bears lost only one game this season, to 10th ranked Oklahoma State, but UCF comes in with a lot to prove and this could be an interesting game if Baylor isn't careful.
The Fiesta Bowl live stream kicks off at 8:30 p.m. EST.
