The Big 12 is 14-1 through two weeks of non-conference play.  That gaudy mark will be tested this weekend, with four Big 12 school hitting the road for matchups against BCS opponents.  Top-ranked Oklahoma (1-0) travels to face No. 5 Florida State on Saturday in a game that could have a major impact on the BCS race.       No. 24 Texas (2-0) plays at UCLA, facing a Bruins team that embarrassed the Longhorns in Austin a year ago. Iowa State (2-0) plays at Connecticut (1-1) on Friday night in a rare national TV
appearance for the Cyclones, and Kansas (2-0) plays at Georgia Tech (2-0).
