Game of the Week: Dwyer vs. Glades Central

Story by John Evenson / CBS 12 Sports
Our first Game of the Week of the season features a match-up that is highly regarded as the best in the east against the best in the west. Both the Dwyer and Glades Central football teams are well known for consistently producing BCS and NFL stars, and there is no shortage of talent on the teams entering this season. Both teams consider anything less than a State Championship as a disappointment.

In my eyes its a good way to start the season, says Glades Central running back Jerry Jones, because in the playoffs well be playing tougher teams than this, so its a good way to get prepared.

You know theyre gonna come to play, says Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon, because theyve got a chip on their shoulders.

That chip on Dwyers shoulder in courtesy of a 44-13 Kickoff Classic loss to Miami Central this past Saturday. The Panthers were not happy about giving up 175 yards worth of penalties, and they turned over the ball too much for their liking.

We gave up plays against Miami Central, agrees Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels, two pass plays, and were not like that. We dont usually do that, but Glades Central will exploit you in the same way.

MIAMI (AP)-- The first Miami Beach Bowl ended with a dandy Miami Beach brawl.

Moments after Memphis had secured a 55-48 double overtime victory over BYU at Marlins Park in Miami, several fights broke out between Memphis and Brigham Young players. It took several minutes for order to be restored, but not before several punches had been thrown and tempers flared. The brawl involved many players from both teams after BYU's Christian Stewart threw an interception on the final play.

As for the game, Paxton Lynch accounted for seven touchdowns including a scoring pass to Roderick Proctor in the second overtime to win it. Jake Elliott made a 55-yard field goal to force the second OT.

Lynch threw for four scores and ran for three more for Memphis.

The victory secured the first 10-victory season for Memphis since 1938. The Tigers wound up 10-3. BYU finished 8-5.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Peyton Manning is 8-0 in his career against Cincinnati. That doesn't bode well for the Bengals tonight when Manning and the Denver Broncos visit in the Monday Night Football game.

But the Broncos quarterback may not be 100 percent for this critical game for both teams. He's been bothered by the flu and a strained right thigh. That limited him in practice this week.

It's a pivotal game for both teams in the playoff picture. The 11-3 Broncos have already won the AFC West and would clinch a first-round bye with a victory at Paul Brown Stadium. They are also in the running for best record in the AFC and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The 9-4-1 Bengals would earn a fourth straight trip to the playoffs with a win. Regardless of the outcome, Cincinnati will play the Steelers in Pittsburgh next week for the AFC North title.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Johnny Football's unspectacular first NFL season is over. Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL') has been ruled out of the team's season finale against Baltimore after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to Carolina. It was the second start of the season for the rookie sensation. The player he replaced as starter, Brian Hoyer had to come in to finish up the Panthers game but he hurt his shoulder.

If Hoyer can't play against the Ravens, rookie Connor Shaw will start.


LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago quarterback Jimmy Clausen will miss the season finale against Minnesota because of a concussion, moving Jay Cutler back into the starting role. Cutler was benched in favor of Clausen for Sunday's loss to Detroit. Clausen was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit by the Lions Ezekiel Ansah during the game.

The Bears say he passed all tests by team physicians after the game and reported no concussion symptoms. He started having issues later in the day.


TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- In the wake of Arizona's one-sided loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he's leaning toward starting rookie quarterback Logan Thomas in the regular-season finale. Arians insists the decision is not a reflection on how Ryan Lindley played in Sunday's 35-6 home loss to the Seahawks.

Arians says he wants to see what Thomas "can do for the future and the playoffs."

It's not that the game has no playoff implications.

At 11-4, Arizona still can clinch the NFC West and No. 1 seed in the playoffs if it beats San Francisco and the Seahawks lose at home to St. Louis.


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A dozen people are recovering after they were injured by an indirect lightning strike at Raymond James Stadium after a game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers.

Tampa Fire Rescue officials say the lightning strike happened Sunday afternoon as fans were walking back to their cars in one of the parking lots.

Rescue crews took seven people to the hospital. All were in stable condition when they left for St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa. Another four to five people told authorities they were going on their own to be checked out.


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- San Francisco Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro (SKOO'-tah-roh) has undergone back surgery that could end his career.

Giants general manager Brian Sabean (SAY'-bee-ihn) says Scutaro had the fusion procedure performed by Dr. Michael Wang in Miami on Friday to alleviate the troublesome area at level L-2/L-3 of his spine. It will be four-to-six months before doctors determine whether Scutaro can play baseball again.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Phil Hughes finished his first season in Minnesota one out shy of a $500,000 bonus. His new deal with the Twins more than takes care of that.

The Twins and the 28-year-old right-hander have agreed to a $58 million, five-year contract that adds $42 million in guaranteed money from 2017-19.

Hughes went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA and led the major leagues among qualifying pitchers with an 11.63 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He had been scheduled to make $8 million each of the next two seasons as part of a $24 million, three-year contract.


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Free agent reliever Sergio Romo has finalized a $15 million, two-year contract with the Giants, keeping a key member of bullpen from three championship runs.

The 31-year-old right-hander has spent all seven of his big league seasons with San Francisco, winning titles in 2010, `12 and this year. He went 6-4 with a 3.72 ERA with 23 saves in 64 outings last season.


UNDATED (AP) -- Make it three weeks in a row that Kentucky has been a unanimous pick as No. 1 in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll. The 12-0 Wildcats got all 65 first-place votes. Kentucky solidified its spot as the top team in the land with a crushing 83-44 win over UCLA Saturday in which the Wildcats rattled off the first 24 points in the game.

Duke, Arizona and Louisville held onto the next three spots.

The Cardinals have a showdown with Kentucky in Louisville on Saturday.

Virginia moves up a spot to No. 5, trading places with Wisconsin.

Villanova, Gonzaga, Texas and Kansas rounded out the top 10 in the same spots they held last week.


UNDATED (AP) -- Toronto visits Chicago in a battle of division leaders that highlights tonight's seven-game NBA schedule.

The Atlantic Division leading Raptors top the Eastern Conference with a 22-5 record that includes a six-game winning streak. The Bulls lead the Central Division but are only 5-5 at home this season. Chicago is hoping to have Derek Rose back in the lineup after the star guard missed the last two games with an illness.

The Hawks are on quite a run. Atlanta has won 12 of its last 13 to pull into a tie with Washington for first in the Southeast Division. The Hawks are on the road to take on the Mavericks and newly acquired guard Rajon Rondo.

Golden State has won 17 of 18 as it prepares to host Sacramento. The Warriors are 9-1 on their home court this season.

San Antonio is in an uncharacteristic slump heading into its home game against the Clippers. The Spurs have dropped four in a row and lost six of their last eight. In the Clippers, they'll be taking on a fifth straight opponent that would currently qualify for the playoffs.


AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- With Detroit sporting a 5-23 record, it was time for a Pistons change.

The Pistons waived forward Josh Smith, less than halfway through the lucrative four-year contract he signed before the 2013-14 season. Pistons GM and coach Stan Van Gundy said he wants to develop younger players.


UNDATED (AP) -- No. 6 Wisconsin should be well rested for tonight's game at California and they may need it. The 10-1 Badgers have been off for nine days for exams. The Golden Bears have won seven in a row to improve to 10-1. It's their best start to a season since 1959-60.

The only team that's beaten Kansas this season is top-ranked Kentucky. The 10th-ranked Jayhawks try to improve on their 9-1 record when they visit 7-4 Temple.

No. 13 Washington will try to match its best start to a season since 2005-06 when they host Tulane. The Huskies are 10-0 thanks, in part, to the nation's leading shot blocker, Robert Upshaw.

There are 12 games on the schedule involving top 25 teams.
