Rivalry weekend lived up to the hype, providing a nice mix of competitive matchups and one-sided drubbings. We saw an unlikely Apple Cup upset, Duck dominance in the Civil War, a thrilling finish in Bedlam, and an Alabama Iron Bowl statement. The Game went to the Ohio State, the Egg Bowl to Ole Miss. The Old Oaken Bucket went to Purdue, and Notre Dame earned its spot in the National Championship Game by holding down USC and backup QB Max Wittek.
Not all backups suffered; South Carolina’s Dylan Thompson did just fine in topping Clemson. And out in the desert, Arizona State snatch the Territorial Cup away from Arizona with an improbable rally.
Here’s the best and worst of what week 13 had to offer.
Best Win of The Week, Week 12: Florida 37, Florida State 26 in Tallahassee
This 11-point win wasn’t even that close. The Gators went into Tallahassee as a forgotten team of sorts, highly-ranked and boasting a very solid resume, but out of the SEC Championship game. To stay on the BCS...

The Florida-Florida State rivalry is one of the most entertaining and deeply rooted rivalries in all of college football. However, the hatred that was once just reserved for players is seeping into a different social group — the cheerleaders. Tarin Moses, the girlfriend of Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel, took to Twitter in the week leading up to the sunshine showdown to express...
What’s hotter than a frog giggin’ cheerleader in the SEC? Very little. That’s why we’re now naming Florida cheerleader the “SEC’s Hottest Frog Giggin’ Cheerleader.” The competition (there was none) couldn’t come up with the resume to steal this title from Gators QB Jeff Driskel’s girlfriend.
It seems the QB of the #4 team in the nation will be spending his first...
According to an article from Yahoo! Sports, defensive tackle Omar Hunter had some strong words for former Florida Gator Head Coach Urban Meyer. Urban Meyer resigned from the Gators after the 2010 to spend more time with his family. Athletic Director Jeremy Foley hired Will Muschamp who was the head coach in waiting at Texas behind Mack Brown. Florida Gator beat reporter, Thomas Goldkamp...
A moment captured in time where Florida State Seminole Bjoern Werner was milliseconds away from touching Jeff Driskel. Florida Gator quarterback had a tough third quarter against the FSU defense but bounced back in the 4th quarter where UF cranked out 24 points to win the game. Maybe Werner just wanted to give Driskel a nice hug.
That’s just good sportsmanship.
College Cheer Heaven uncovered that a Florida State cheerleader, Mellisa, is dating senior walk-on Florida running back Scott Peek. It turns out that it doesn’t take being the star football player to date a smoking hot cheerleader.
Earlier this year, I made the case that Jeff Driskel needed to join the amazing second-year quarterback legacy at Florida for the Gators to have a great season. I’ll have more on this in a moment, but the real second-year … Continue reading →
