If you haven’t paid attention to UCF quarterback Blake Bortles, now is the time to start noticing what the junior is doing. Take last night against Akron in a 38-7 win. Bortles was 18-24 for 318 yards and 3 TDs, including this amazing fumble to himself and then he maintains enough composure to throw a touchdown.
Sure, it was Akron, but still.
Bortles had 25 TDs and 7 INTs last year. Don’t be shocked if he drops 30 TD passes this year. I mentioned a couple weeks ago that his big show of the year will be September 28 when he gets to go against Clowney – at home.
You might also remember that Bortles has the bikini model girlfriend, Lindsey Duke ( @liindseyduke). Could Bortles be the breakout star of the season? The pieces are lining up.
