Sports: MagicJack St. Petersburg Bowl

A brand new NCAA post-season bowl game debuts in the ’burg this weekend. It’s called the MagicJack St. Petersburg Bowl, and it pits USF against University of Memphis. Neither team lit it up this season. Memphis finished 6-6. USF started 5-0, but stumbled when it began to play Big East Conference foes, and finished with a 7-5 mark. While the MagicJack Bowl sits pretty low on the bowl food chain, it still has the potential to be an entertaining game. USF’s wide-open offensive attack is always fun to watch. By the way, a MagicJack is an internet voice phone device that “eliminates phone bills.” Sat., Dec. 20, 4 p.m., Tropicana Field, 1 Tropicana Drive, St. Petersburg, $30,; also televised on ESPN2.
