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.

Rumors on talk radio and newspapers are saying that the University of  Texas-San Antonio is looking to join Conference USA.

It was a year ago that UTSA accepted an invitation to join the Western Athletic Conference.

Conference USA officials approached UTSA in March.

Conference USA is planning on merging with the Mountain West Conference, which will create a league of 24 teams across five time zones. No other conference will be able to match that fact.

Texas-San Antonio was scheduled to join the Western Athletic Conference this year, but three WAC schools declared their decisions to leave since UTSA accepted its invitation. This would leave the WAC with just four football schools.

UAB athletic director Brian Mackin said in making the decision to part ways with Davis, stemmed from ” decline in attendance, ticket revenue and a growing apathy among the fans.”

Meyer names Tom Herman as offensive coordinator/QB’s coach

Tom Herman, the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Iowa State University the past three years, and before that the same position for record-setting offenses at Rice University, has been named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State by new head coach Urban Meyer.

Herman’s 2011 Iowa State offense, which he will coach on December 30 in the Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers at Yankee Stadium, averages 181.2 rushing yards and 211.7 passing yards per game. The Cyclones put up 44 points in a triple-overtime win over Iowa and accumulated 37 in a double-overtime upset of then-undefeated and then-#2 Oklahoma State.

“To work with and for Coach Meyer is an exciting opportunity for me,” Herman said. “i am really looking forward to working with him and learning his offensive systems. And to be able to coach with him at The Ohio State University is simply a dream come true.”

Herman was born in Cincinnati and still has family there, although he was raised in Simi Valley, California. He played collegiately at California Lutheran, graduating in 1997 with a degree in business administration. He earned a master’s degree in education from the University of Texas.

Herman has 11 years of experience as a college coach, including seven seasons as an offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, and 13 when his two seasons, 1999-2000, as a graduate assistant at Texas are included. He coached four years at Sam Houston State (2001-04), serving as receivers coach and special teams coordinator. He also spent two years at Texas State (2005-06) and two years at Rice (2007-08) as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

While his Texas State offenses led the Southland Conference in total offense each season, his stint at Rice was really notable. His offenses broke over 40 school records and in his second season the Owls won 10 games and went to a bowl for the first time since 1954.

Furthermore, Rice ranked in the Top 10 nationally in 2008 in passing offense (5th; 327.8), scoring offense (T8th; 41.6) and total offense (10th; 472.3). Two Rice receivers had more than 1,300 yards receiving that year, tight end James Casey had 111 catches and quarterback Chase Clement was the Conference USA MVP.

Herman and his wife, Michelle, have a daughter, Priya, and a son, Maddock.
