Florida News: college football
Tampa Bay Sports This Morning was joined by a phenomenal guest on Friday when Rich Cirminiello of the Maxwell Football Club came on to discuss college football as championship weekend arrived.
It has been a long season for the Ohio State Buckeyes and Urban Meyer, but they still could get into the College Football Playoff with a win and some help. First they need to take care of business in the Big Ten Championship against Northwestern, which can be heard on our own Sports Talk 1040 The Team Tampa Bay on Saturday night.
On today's show, Rock talks Lightning ahead of their clash with the Buffalo Sabres who are on a ten-game win streak. Plus, Jameis Winston's new perspective in life, Cam Newton's attitude change, a look at the matchup with the Carolina Panthers Sunday, and much more!
This weekend is Championship Weekend in college football, and fans of the teams involved are planning their game days all over the Tampa Bay area. Since Florida has a bit of everything, it stands to reason that there are a number of watch parties for fans to watch their favorite college football team shoot for those conference bragging rights.
Every week this college football season, as we at Sports Talk Florida have done our voting in our Florida Rankings, debates and divisions have emerged. The value of simply being in a “power 5” conference was a matter of dispute, as was the value of a so-called “quality loss.” Teams went up and down as the season went on.
With 11:17 to play in the second quarter UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton was tackled by corner Mazzi Wilkins following a five-yard gain on third-and-seven. Within a minute a cart was on the field as it was clear the junior suffered a severe right leg injury. He was immobilized and taken to a hospital.
It’s safe to say that nobody was satisfied when the University of Central Florida missed the College Football Playoff, won their New Year’s Day bowl game over Auburn, and promptly declared themselves national champions. In fact, it was the talk of the offseason throughout the Sunshine State.
McKenzie Milton threw for 268 yards and accounted for four touchdowns Saturday night, helping the defending American Athletic Conference champions remain unbeaten and extend the nation's longest winning streak to 23 games with a 38-13 rout of No. 19 Cincinnati.
Deondre Francois threw a 74-yard touchdown pass to Tamorrion Terry with 1:49 left and the Seminoles beat No. 22 Boston College 22-21 on Saturday to keep their bowl hopes alive.
N'Kosi Perry threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Cam'Ron Davis scored twice and Miami snapped a four-game losing streak with a 38-14 victory against Virginia Tech on Saturday.
