Friday night football forecast



Games to watch

Robinson (4-0) at Jesuit (6-0), 7:30

Outlook: The Knights, who are off to their best start in years, are dealing with COVID issues that forced their starting quarterback and kicker to quarantine. Being depleted does not bode well against the Tigers, who could likely finish the regular season undefeated. 

Pinkos’ pick: Jesuit by 42

Putnam’s prediction: Jesuit 42-14

Victory Christian (4-1) at Calvary Christian (5-0), 7

Outlook: This is the biggest test of the season so far for the Warriors. Expect a high-scoring game. Last week, the Storm fell short in a 41-35 loss to Berkeley Prep. 

Pinkos’ pick: Victory Christian by 10

Putnam’s prediction: Calvary Christian 35-34

Wesley Chapel (3-1) at River Ridge (3-2), 7:30

Outlook: Both teams are trying to rebound after losing last week. Points could be at a premium. The Wildcats have allowed 34 points all season. The Knights have given up 67.  

Pinkos’ pick: River Ridge by 19

Putnam’s prediction: River Ridge 28-13

Sickles (2-2) at East Lake (3-2), 7:30

Outlook: Three of the Gryphons’ four games have been decided by a combined eight points. This could be another tight one that could come down to the last possession. 

Pinkos’ pick: East Lake by 21

Putnam’s prediction: East Lake 20-13

Tampa Bay Tech (2-3) at Armwood (3-1)

Outlook: The Hawks have reeled off three straight wins since losing by a point to Bloomingdale in the season opener. The Titans know all about close outcomes. Twice, they have lost on the final play of regulation.  

Pinkos’ pick: Armwood by 13

Putnam’s prediction: Armwood 27-26

FNF Campus Tour Preview: Pinellas Park at PHU



Pinellas Park (6-1) at Palm Harbor University (3-4), 7

Three things to know

Pound the rock

Both teams have strong rushing attacks. Palm Harbor University’s ground game is led by Luke Yoder, whose father is former Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Todd Yoder. The younger Yoder currently leads the Tampa Bay area and ranks fourth overall in the state with 1,271 yards so far this season. Pinellas Park is more diversified in its approach. Isaiah Hampton (780 yards) and Terrion Williams (652 yards) are the Patriots’ top two leading rushers. 

Trap game

Pinellas Park is tied with Northeast for second place in Class 6A, District 11 and needs a win against Boca Ciega on Oct. 29 to force a three-way tie at the top of the standings. Before the Patriots can worry about playoff implications, they have to focus on Palm Harbor University. After starting 1-3, the Hurricanes have lost three straight and dropped out of contention for the 8A, District 11 title. That relegated Palm Harbor University to playing the role of spoiler the remainder of the season. 

Check out the FNF Campus Tour

The Friday Night Football Campus Tour, presented by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is a free, interactive event that includes games and prizes for all fans, including the opportunity to get Tampa Bay Buccaneers swag. A 15-foot-tall replica of the NFL’s Super Bowl trophy is on display at each stop.. Buccaneers cheerleaders and Captain Fear, the Bucs’ mascot, also will be in attendance.
