The “Returning Home: Florida College Football” episode of Film Don’t Lie covers bringing a historical star back to campus in their prime for the seven FBS Florida football programs.
What if the Florida Gators could bring back Tim Tebow in his prime? Or the FSU Seminoles could see Peter Warrick lined up all over the field again? Can you picture Ken Dorsey back behind the center in Mark Richt’s offense? Or even TY Hilton playing for Butch Davis? The USF Bulls could use Jason Pierre-Paul and the FAU Owls could use Trey Hendrickson to improve their pass rush. That’s what this episode Returning Home: Florida College Football is all about. The seven FBS schools get the chance to bring one player back from their history and in the prime of their careers.
The UCF (Golden) Knights take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves in the Cure Bowl at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL on December 17th. The Knights, who have bounced back from an 0-12 fiasco in their last year under George O’Leary (an some interim coaches, and probably Brent Key in all reality) to a 6-6 record.
The Knights can finish 2016 a winner if they can upset Ark State. The Red Wolves slipped from 9-4 to 7-5, and could string together another good season with a win. The Knights are favored on the S&P+ standing at 70 while Ark State sits at 92, ASU however has a bigger win by defeating Troy while UCF really just has a “big loss” narrowly losing to Houston.
