Top five games

1. Land O’ Lakes 28, Sunlake 26

Ahead by 11 at the half, the Gators had to sweat it out in the latest installment of the Butter Bowl. The Seahawks made a furious rally, but the comeback fell short on a missed field goal in the waning seconds. 

2. Hernando 27, Nature Coast 21

The Leopards, who won two straight entering the rivalry game, continued their momentum by scoring the winning touchdown in the final minute. The loss snapped the Sharks’ 10-game regular season win streak. 

3. Leto 14, Brandon 12

A year after snapping a six-year losing streak, the Falcons ended another drought by winning a game at home for the first time in a decade. They did it in dramatic fashion, rallying from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter. 

4. Clearwater 15, Largo 12

The Tornadoes’ defense delivered when it mattered most, stopping the Packers on downs late in the fourth quarter to seal the win.  

5. Mitchell 25, East Lake 20

The Mustangs had to hold off a second-half comeback to beat the Eagles for the third straight season.

Friday night football forecast



Must-see matchups

Northeast (6-0) at Boca Ciega (4-2), 7

A win would all but clinch the Class 6A, District 11 title for the Vikings. That could be tough considering Northeast is dealing with some injuries. 

Putnam’s prediction: Boca Ciega 21-20

Steinbrenner (3-4) at East Lake (2-5), 7

The winner becomes the overwhelming favorite to take the Class 8A, District 11 title. 

Putnam’s prediction: Steinbrenner 17-13

Armwood (4-2) at Bloomingdale (3-3), 7:30

The Hawks won both meetings in 2019. The Bulls won both meetings last season. The stakes are not as high this time around with neither team in the same district but still a riveting rivalry. 

Putnam’s prediction: Armwood 27-21

Nature Coast (4-2) at Hudson (5-1), 7:30

The Sharks already have a loss in Class 5A, District 9 play and cannot afford another if they want to stay within striking distance of the Cobras and Zephyrhills at the top of the standings. 

Putnam’s prediction: Nature Coast 24-21

Largo (2-4) at Mitchell (6-1), 7:30

This is a must-win for the Packers to have any shot at the Class 7A, District 9 title.

Putnam’s prediction: Mitchell 20-14

Tampa Bay Tech (6-0) at Wiregrass Ranch (4-1), 7:30

A Titans win would set up a showdown with Wharton next week to decide the Class 7A, District 10 title. This matchups features two differing styles on offense with Tampa Bay Tech’s ground attack going up against the Bulls’ aerial assault.  

Putnam’s prediction: Tampa Bay Tech 28-21

Plant City (4-2) at Durant (6-1), 7:30

The host Cougars already have a loss in Class 8A, District 10 and cannot afford another one to keep their title hopes alive. 

Putnam’s prediction: Durant 17-16

Tampa Catholic (3-2) at Land O’ Lakes (6-0), 7:30

This is the Gators’ toughest test so far this season, one that could end up derailing their perfect regular season. 

Putnam’s prediction: Tampa Catholic 34-28

East Bay (5-1) at Palmetto (2-3), 7:30

A pivotal Class 7A, District 11 matchup the visiting Indians need to keep their district title hopes alive. 

Putnam’s prediction: Palmetto 14-13 

Braden River (5-0) at Clearwater Central Catholic (4-2), 7:30

The tough schedule continues for the Marauders who face the undefeated the Pirates. 

Putnam’s prediction: Clearwater Central Catholic 21-16

FNF Campus Tour Preview: Armwood at Bloomingdale



Armwood (4-2) at Bloomingdale (3-3), 7:30

Three things to know

Riveting rivalry

This has become a series to watch, especially the past two seasons. In 2019, Armwood won both meetings, including a region quarterfinal matchup en route to advancing to the state semifinals. Last season, it was Bloomingdale’s turn. The Bulls won a 15-14 thriller in the season opener and prevailed in the region semifinals, too, en route to making the state semifinals for the first time. There are no more district implications (The Hawks are in 7A-10, while Bloomingdale is in 7A-11). But there still is plenty at stake. Both teams are coming off losses and need a win to regain some momentum. 

Defensive dynamos

The outcome could be decided on defense. After all, both teams have playmakers on that side of the ball. Armwood defensive back RJ Stroud has picked off five passes, three more than anyone else on the team. Bloomingdale defensive end Jackson Sykes has recorded a team-high four sacks, caused two fumbles and recovered one. 

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.
