Football: Hillsborough 28, King 0

TAMPA — Hillsborough showed it could play smashmouth football at will Friday night against King.

Its defense pitched a shutout and its offensive line dominated.

That led to a painless 28-0 victory at home. And it gave the Terriers a chance to rest some of their starters and play some key freshmen.

"After not playing very well last week it was nice to come out and turn it around tonight," Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia said. "We have a young offensive line who blocked great and protected the pocket. And it's not very often that you can shut out (King quarterback) Greg Windham. I'm proud of our defense."

The Terriers (7-2, 5-2) came out quickly and were breaking off tons of yards on the ground. Hillsborough running back Anthony Brown was carving his way through the defense and would have outrageous statistics had Garcia not sat him in the second half. Even so, Brown averaged 12 yards and totaled 132 yards.

Windham and the pass-oriented King (3-5, 2-3) offense had a couple of drives into Hillsborough territory, but could not get into the red zone before committing turnovers or being shut down.

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC

    College

    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
