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.

    ST. PETERSBURG —- Damion Lowe has loved his first season with the Rowdies but has some other soccer-related business that might pull him away for a bit.

    Family business, too.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — On June 10, 2009, the Brewers selected a Sarasota High School shortstop in the 16th round of the MLB draft. He'd assembled an impressive resume in prep ball, but as one of more than 1,500 players drafted that year, he had a tough road to the big leagues.

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett (4) of Sarasota makes the throw to first as Rays DH Trevor Plouffe (14) grounds into a double play at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Monday, June 19, 2017. For Gennett, the three-game series this week with the Rays was his first trip back to Tampa Bay since his historic four-home run game June 6, 2017 against St. Louis. DIRK SHADD   |   Times
