It’s a big kickoff weekend for college football in the state, and we are debuting something new.
Each week, we will take a video look at the important match-ups with long time radio and TV veteran from Tampa, TJ Rives. And he is joined by Todd Grasley, a UCF alum who’s riding high after last season, to go over the top games weekly.
These guys are ready to preview the USF Bulls and Florida Gators Saturday night openers. Then, they will move on to the huge Sunday night showdown of LSU and Miami from AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
Then, Monday night is the ACC opener and the debut of Willie Taggart for Florida State, as they host Virginia Tech at Doak Campbell Stadium.
FFI week 4 CFB and NFL Preview
In our Florida Football Insiders Week 4 Preview, TJ Rives and Todd Grasley take a look at the Friday night showdown between UCF and FAU, an SEC rivalry that dates back to the early 1900’s between the Gators and Vols, can USF improve to 4-0 under Charlie Strong, and much more.
Plus all three Sunshine State NFL teams are undefeated: Bucs & Fitzmagic, Jags upend Patriots, and the Dolphins surprising folks in SOFL.
Video- Preview of college and huge NFL weekend in the state
While the college roll call of games is not tremendous for the schools in Florida, the NFL action will be poppin’.
Yes, FSU is a Syracuse in an ACC showdown at the Carrierdome, and USF is traveling to Illinois for a second straight game with a Power Five program in the Big Ten’s Illini. Still Miami should have an easy time with Toledo and the same with Florida at home with Colorado State.
Meanwhile, in the NFL all three state matchups have a battle of 1-0 teams. Probably, the game of the weekend is the rematch of the Jaguars vs. Patriots in Jacksonville. However, Bucs hosting Eagles and Dolphins traveling to New York will also have interest.
Here’s our F.F.I. Video preview with co-hosts, T.J. Rives and Todd Grasley getting you ready for the Saturday/Sunday games:
