Conference USA member Central Florida, one of Ohio State’s 2012 opponents, beat Ball State of the Mid-American Conference on Friday night in the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl, 38-17.

The game took place at St. Petersburg, Florida at Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball.

Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles threw three touchdowns and ran for another in the contest.

Bortles completed 22 of 33 passes without an interception.

Ball State, which finishes the season at 9-4, had high hopes of winning 10 games for only the third time in school history, but its usually high-scoring offense was held to a season-low point total by a swarming, speedy Knights defense. The Cardinals saw their six-game winning streak come to an end.

Bortles, who led the Knights to a 10-4 record, passed for 272 yards to become the first QB to throw for 3,000 yards since 2002. A solid runner, he also led the team on the ground, rushing nine times for a career-best 80 yards.

Cardinals quarterback Keith Wenning was 22 of 34 passing for 217 yards and two touchdowns.

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

 

(courtesy Notre Dame athletics)

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.

REVISTED: Ohio State 31 Central Florida 16; Defensive mistakes, no QB pressure, new stars found

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Just like the week before in the Miami, Ohio game, the Ohio State defense made a boatload of mistakes.

The defense had trouble with pass coverages and long runs by the running back.

Freshman DE Noah Spence

On Central Florida’s first touchdown, Storm Johnson, the Miami Hurricanes transfer, rumbled 48 yards down the right sideline and would’ve took it to the house if he hadn’t ran out of gas at the Ohio State 12.

On the Knight’s second touchdown, on a fourth-down, a 2-yard pass to fullback Billy Giovanetti out of a three-receiver cluster formation. The fullback simply got open and one was arround to defend on defense for the Buckeyes.

Another area which was suppose to be strong was the pass rush with John Simon, Johnathan Hankins and Garrett Goebel around. But for the second straight week, was a no-factor due to QB Blake Bortles quick release to get the pass out. He was not hurried, was sack once and threw three interceptions only because of his careless, not the OSU pass rush. Simon, to be fair here, was double-teammed most of the day.

The defense with nine pass breakups was a positive sign.

Freshman DT Tommy Schutt

The defense did have its stars in Travis Howard, Orhian Johnson and Etienne Sabino all with the interceptions

The fans did get to see some new stars from three freshman, DE Noah Spence, DT Tommy Schutt and DE Adolphus Washington. Remember those names, because they’ll be the next All-Big Ten performers on the defense.

Navy accepts invite to join Big East in football

 

The Navy Midshipmen football program has accepted the Big East Conference’s invitation to join the league starting in 2015.

The United States service academy has been an independent in football since the program’s inception in 1879.

The Big East is trying to the build the conference into a 12-team league for football, with eastern and western divisions and a league championship game.
