Florida needed three overtimes to beat Kentucky. Florida beat Kentucky, 36-30, on Saturday night. It took three overtimes. It took a record night from Demarcus Robinson.

The defense showed up, but the offense didn't. You can't win if you don't score. It was a really wet, rainy and ugly day in Norfolk, Virginia. For a pair of schools where the offensive philosophies are more pass-friendly, that's not favorable for either side. Coming into the game, nobody ...

James Conner breaks Pitt record in FIU win

Lost a bit in Pitt's win over Florida International was the fact that running back James Conner's big day was record-breaking. Conner didn't have a perfect game with the costly fumbles - that much is clear. But at the end of the day, he still racked up 177 yards on ...
