10:21:00 p.m. as we always say, it is not about changing leaves in florida, it is usually delayed until the second or third week in october when the big cold front comes through on average. dark clouds up in the spring hill area. lots of these here and there. not a whole lot of rain, but good downpours did occur at times. at 8:00 a.m., temperatures in the upper 70s. the temperatures are expected to be warm. it is currently 82 degrees at the airport and our view of downtown from our own camera hoar at point and the wins are fairly light. this is a jacksonville, charleston, south carolina and our water say pop imagery shows dry air at the mid and high levels of the atmosphere colored in red. it show as strong west to northwestsly wind. this is our tropical depression julia blowing all of the clouds off to the east. this really hurt this storm, thankfully. that is a good thing the avoid all of the flooding. we still have a few showers,

scattered thunderstorms there saturday afternoon in louisville, kentucky. and we have ucf playing maryland in orlando. 84 degrees again. a slight chance of seeing a passing shower there. florida a&m, they are playing in mobile, alabama. 81 degrees for that game. of course, the bucs, they're traveling out to phoenix to play the that fancy dome, sometimes open dome wthe grass that slides out. 100 degrees outside that stadium and air conditioned and forecast model again, we see the rain pushing off to the west. a few clouds left over. sunshine, too, mixed in. otherwise quiet to start the day a similar day for tomorrow afternoon. steamy conditions for sure. the dew points remain quite high. 90 for a high temperature on saturday. as i mentioned, a little lower for sunday thanks to slightly drier air sneaking in from the north. the rain chances on sunday would favor generally south of
you disproportionately for you. and then fall starts to pop up there on thursday. >> i should say if you're thinking about fall, don't. >> and not in the conventional way of all that is on the greeting cards and the pumpkin spice. >> it still sounds nice, though. >> it is lovely. >> and you have a great-looking graphic. coming up next, something that is fall like, it is the friday night blitz. >> and they are standing by and join school football action. >> you're watching news channel 8, your official buc station. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. donald trump says he alone can fix the

of the week! and the unstoppable push a state title, but first, let's check out the eagles. hey, dano! we're in district play already. district 6-a, the cross county match-up here. it runs much like the coca cola free-style machines, options, and runs for a while before taking a break. the eagles come up empty. and a nice snag there, and once again, it doesn't show on the sc for dough. >> and 6-0 eagles. and then in the second. wright finds randy morgan in the flats, and he finds some green grass. that sets up the q.b. for another keeper. there is nothing wrong with wright. and they win handily 33-7. in your kitchen! >> let's get in the time machine. let's go to thursday night. and this is a rivalry game hosting central.
and look at one of about nine quarterbacks last night for this game for nature coast. 7-0 at that point. more sharks here. t.j. owens playing the quarterback position. untouched, 56 yards. 14-0. the bears are going to cut into this league, though, on the legs of davante smith. his brother led the nation in running last year for nature coast. >> is that good? >> he is a bear, though. the little brother hits the pylon there. 59-20, nature coast, the winner. >> time now for the friday night blitz game of the week. i love those neighborhood rivalries, especially with the gigantic tub of butter at stake. it was butter bowl night at land oh lakes. >> i don't think they get the butter. unfortunately for the gators, the arch rival sun lake owns three straight butter bowl trophies, and anthony alred
continue. >> reporter: welcome to the swap where the gators haven't beat the gators since swine flu was a pandemic around the world. so can the gators beat them for the first time in six season ? i don't know! so to the highlights we go. gator fans at the swamp were ready to rock, but would it be enough to shut down the seahawks. the first possession, and they only need a yard for a first down. there goes justin mets gear with the gators chopping at seahawks would g on to punch it in from the goal line, and the ensuing kick-off. and the line drive kick. and it looks like he may see daylight. he is bobbing and wieing hen oh, my groceries! that's got to hurt that wasn't a very neighborly gesture from the seahawks. watch this textbook three-step pass. and per receipty catches his balance on the run and he gets deep into the gators' secondary
to get a comfortable lead, but the gators ain't having it. pigskin gone wild and the gators would keep the seahawks from knocking on the door with the score 7-0. from the gun when tick, tick, tick, boom goes the byron nelson mite! justin kern runs it all the way down to the red zone before he has run out of bounds. and all they would get is a field goal with the seahawks. they would go on to win it and the seventh year in a row teaching you to never sleep on the gym of the week. anthony alred, news channel 8 sports. >> butta! >> i got to hold that butter bowl trophy today, which is something land oh lakes has never done. >> oh! >> harsh. >> go to the grocery store and get some. >> let's have the highlights,

show up. i'm patrick murphy. solving problems means showing up. and working together. it's why i worked to protect women's health care and worked with both parties to stop cuts to medicare. i'm patrick murphy and i approve this message because florida needs a full-time senator. marco?
i wore a badge for 38 years knowing how much you trusted us to keep you safe. yet when a officer was killed in action florida was not doing enough to give their families the help they desperately needed. dana young understood. that was benefits they are entitled to and the honor they deserve. dana young has our back and she has yours. dana young for the florida senate.
friendly at least until mother nature had enough skylights. >> the helicopters have windows, just put them up! before a bird's eye view of east bay hosting durant, and chamberlain, it is time for this week's friday night blitz skylights. >> what a colorful night for a blitz. fly down the bay to the east bay and home of the indians in the battle against the cougars. the indians' ground game a go. and up the middle. and this time the q.b. tanner morris keeps it, finds an opening, but, wait, dragged down from behind, and now time for trey everett who gets it inside the 10. drive stalled, and in comes big number 90 for three pick up and good. the cougar ball. carlton potter looks deep and connects with brandon myers who goes. good gain. potter fakes one way and back
myers who has clear sailing all the way, but he stretches out of bounds at the 10. no t.d., and the east bay defense stands tough. durant settles for a field goal. and time now to dodge the rain drops and some bright lights to the big lights, up against the chiefs of chamber lynn. the chiefs having a tough time against an even tougher defense, and showing us some sleight oh, wrong guys. devin black has the billion and he scrambles down to the 30. here comes aaron collins. he springs it wide. gets the corner and then run out of bounds. so why not try mr. collins one more time. he avoids can't until he is in for six. and that's all the time for eagle 8 hd skylights in eagle 8 hd. and news channel 8. >> thank you, paul. more highlights. this time from the ground.
do you ever go somewhere and realize you forgot something? like a football! >> and they take over. and geovany, common spelling. that was pretty. and later, the ravens trying to get something going. scott, goodwill hunting who wheels into enemy territory. and it is best summed up by the late gene wilder, you get nothing. you lose. good day, sir. and that allows geovany to do th six! and when will alonzo score, quote the raven, never month. and he shut down alonzo, 44-0. >> we head north, and clearwater hosting boca tonight. a 7-7 game. the quarterback. he is also the punter. and at least not on that play. clearwater takes over deep inside. the territory, one play, to grant wilson, the tornadoes take the lead 14-7. the pirates go back on offense.
as the quarterback breaks four tackles, on his way to the end zone. he is better as a quarterback than a punter. >> the ensuing kick-off. that is jones. for those of you who don't know who he is. clearwater pulls away 51-35. >> finally, i'm sure this is a football field, not your own private roadway. probably playing they have got jones, who finishes the braves' first two drives of touchdown runs mr. intelligence and me are going to be big, big stars. 12-0. lake gibson right out of the gate. and he loses the snap, find as friend in the end zone. chris howard, lucky number 13 falling into your living room. and a quick out to m.j. link, and his quest ends in the end zone. they win it 35-0. and good
show with yetness. >> yes, that's exactly what i need. >> the play of the week tonight. this is a beauty. we just saw this a couple of minutes ago. if you did not know this guy before tonight, he is your hero. you're trying to tackle jones. a 90-yard kick. jones also had a big touchdown catch in the first quarter in the tornadoes' win. look at him go down the sideline. >> and remember the name. anyone? nobody remembers? hum. >> shout it out, crew. nothing? all right. >> can we acknowledge a score tonight, by the way? >> yes. >> middleton, four, robinson, nothing. >> fun fact about robinson. >> two safeties. >> they're averaging 11.75 points per game. that is some old-fashioned big 10 football. >> as derek cutter says never apologize for a win. >> check out middleton. >> go tigers! thank you for ginning us. we'll see you next week for
