Florida college football scouting reports

Other state schools

Miami at North Carolina, 12:30, Ch. 44

The Tar Heels (5-1, 1-1 ACC) can clinch bowl eligibility for the fourth straight season by beating Miami (2-3, 0-2) in a Coastal Division matchup. A win would give North Carolina its best start since the 1997 team also opened 6-1, and it would keep the Tar Heels in contention in the division. The Hurricanes' three losses have come by a combined 15 points.

UCF at SMU, 3:30, Sun Sports

This is a matchup of the defending Conference USA division champs. The Knights (3-2, 1-0) have not allowed a passing touchdown this season, and their defense has surrendered just three touchdowns in all. But UCF will be challenged by quarterback J.J. McDermott; Zach Line, the league's leading rusher, and Darius Johnson, the league's leading receiver for SMU (4-1, 2-0).

Fort Valley State at Bethune-Cookman, 4

The Wildcats (2-3) were held to 5 rushing yards last week, and the offense struggled in B-CU's second consecutive loss. Fort Valley State is 1-5.

W. Kentucky at FAU, 4

FAU (0-5, 0-2 Sun Belt) opens its long-awaited on-campus stadium, a $70 million, 30,000-seat, open-air venue that has chair backs for every seat; 6,000 premium seats, including 24 suites; 26 loge boxes; 1,000 premier club seats, and 4,000 priority club seats. Former Owls will return to see the stadium, including NFL players Rusty Smith and Rob Housler. Western Kentucky is 1-4 overall and 1-1 in the league.

Florida A&M at Savannah State, 7

The Rattlers (3-3, 1-2 MEAC) are led by linebacker Demarius Folsom, who has six sacks and 43 tackles. Savannah State (1-5, 1-2) has struggled under first-year coach Steve Davenport.
