FSU demolishes the Gators 37-7 and Alabama loses in last second to Auburn! FSU now #1!!!??

     Tallahassee, FL  — The Florida Gators had a massive opportunity to ruin their rivals’ season on Saturday. They were able to hang tough early against the Florida State Seminoles, but their spoiler bid went to pot as the superior team pulled away in a 37-7 laugher that was effectively over by halftime.   AUBURN, Ala.  — Chris Davis raced 100-plus yards with a missed field-goal attempt for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith’s 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). Now who will be the NCAA National Champion?

Lobaton hits walk off HR into the Tampa Bay Rays Aquarium to keep the series alive vs Boston | MLB NEWS

Jose Lobaton hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays staved off elimination once again, beating the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Monday night. Tampa Bay took a win-or-go-home game for the fourth time in nine days. The Rays did it with an unlikely stroke as Lobaton, who came off the bench late in the game, connected against Red Sox closer Koji Uehara. Keys to the win: Lobaton’s shot wound up in the giant rays tank beyond the wall at Tropicana Field. Evan Longoria’s two-out, three-run homer in the fifth off Clay Buchholz rallied the Rays to a 3-all tie. Delmon Young, who has a penchant for driving home key runs in October, put Tampa Bay ahead 4-3 with an RBI grounder in the eighth. The Red Sox tied it in the ninth against Rays closer Fernando Rodney. Dustin ...

The Home of The Seminole Club of Polk County

  With co-owners Bill Alcock (FSU FAN) and Leroy Bigsby (GATOR FAN) becoming rivals on college gameday, the challenge was made to turn Winners Circle Sportsbar & Grill into THE hotspot to watch their teams games. The initial focus was on being a hub for the local in-state favorites (Noles, Gators, Hurricanes, Bulls) and it caught on fast. Quickly the sportsbar grew to exactly what they were wanting to be on college gameday, the place to be. Welcoming any and all sports fans to dine, drink, and play, this famous local Sportsbar is now one of the places where college football fans come in droves; many beginning to “tail-gate” and play cornhole on the outside patio hours before game-time and all with one thing on their mind – COLLEGE GAMEDAY.   Thus approached the The Seminole Club of Polk County, with a huge mass of fans, looking for a solidified home to watch ...
