Hot prospects: With a big group enrolling this month and a small senior class leaving, USF only has 3-4 scholarships left in play, but it hopes to land QB Chris Moody of McDonough, Ga., who has visits to Vanderbilt and South Carolina remaining. Two possible commitments who have already visited campus are Oakland Park OL Kam Davis and Gainesville LB Tashon Whitehurst, a Syracuse commitment who went to school with early enrollee Chris Bivins. The Bulls might make a scholarship offer to Citra North Marion RB Jamie Gilmore, a teammate of commitment Sean Price who is very interested in USF.

    Despite a sore shoulder, Jameis Winston will be making his 38th consecutive start since being drafted first overall in 2015.
  3. Bucs journal: LB Kwon Alexander ready to return from injury


    TAMPA — LB Kwon Alexander, sidelined by a hamstring injury since the second quarter of the Bucs' season opener against Chicago, will finally make a healthy return Sunday against the Bills.

    Linebacker Kwon Alexander needs “to get my stats back up” after being out since the opener.
  4. A rare treat Saturday for Rowdies: a home playoff game


    ST. PETERSBURG — Rowdies fans, set to be rewarded with their first home playoff match in five years, can also take a little credit for it.
