MONDAY HUDDLE: Jarren Williams' star continues to rise for Miami
Jarren Williams #15 of the Miami Hurricanes throws a pass against the Louisville Cardinals.

Instead of playing for a game-tying extra point, Timber Creek put its season on the line by going for a 2-point conversion.

This is a critical moment in the course of a once-proud FSU football program that needs this next hire to be right. It sure looked like it in a 27-10 win over Florida State. Miami freshman quarterback Jarren Williams continued to show he is getting better rapidly, throwing for 313 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
