KNOW YOUR FOE: South Florida looks to play spoiler against UCF in final War on I-4Alone in the American Athletic Conference's basement, South Florida limps into the final week of the college football season with one last shot at redemption.

All we need do is reflect on how and why American democracy has proved resilient for so long, and vote accordingly.1 month ago Palm Beach Daily News
