College football scouting report: No. 9 Miami Hurricanes at Central Florida Golden Knights

Against the Golden Knights (3-2), the Hurricanes (4-1) are in what is arguably the easier portion of their schedule. Miami QB Jacory Harris has thrown at least two touchdowns in all four wins. He did not throw one in the loss at Virginia Tech. He also has thrown seven interceptions. RB Damien Berry saw his first career action in last week's 48-16 win against Division I-AA Florida A&M with 14 carries, 162 yards and a touchdown. Miami announced this week that DT Marcus Forston (ankle) and TE Richard Gordon (arm) have season-ending injuries. DT Josh Holmes (lower body) and DE Eric Moncur (groin) are also out with injuries. Miami will travel by bus to Orlando instead of by airplane to trim athletic department costs. The Hurricanes will do the same on Nov. 28 when they travel to Tampa to face USF.

What to watch for …

UCF will focus on trying to improve its total offense, ranked 100th nationally (319.6 yards per game). Former Largo RB Brynn Harvey leads the Knights. He's ranked 17th nationally, averaging 107.2 yards per game. Harvey is coming off his most productive game, 219 yards and one touchdown in a 32-14 win against Memphis on Oct. 3. Harvey, a sophomore, has rushed for 536 yards and six touchdowns to eclipse his season totals (519 yards, one touchdown) from 2008.

    It turns out Caleb Brantley isn't quite the dirtbag that millions of people presumed. It's too bad the damage to his reputation and bank account is already done.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
