12. Wichita State
It shouldn’t shock you that the Shockers are on this list. Ok, sorry for the pun, but it’s true. Wichita State has had one of the best mid-major programs in the country for about 15 years.
Do yourself a favor and attend a Wichita State game when they host rival Creighton. Talk about an intense rivalry. It will be “Midwestern nice” but the intensity will be high at Charles Koch Arena. The arena that once hosted Elvis Presley shakes, rattles, and rolls when the Shockers are at home.
