Trevor Knight and Oklahoma had a great showing in the Sugar Bowl. But does one game warrant the hype Knight and the Sooners are getting heading into this season?

College football is jam-packed with amazing players, coaches and teams, all of whom deserve the attention and praise they receive from fans and the media.

And then there are the ones who get all that attention despite their accomplishments.
