This Week Features Syracuse Legend Floyd Little and Road Trip to Pitt’s First Home ACC Game
Charlotte, N.C. – Raycom Sports’ multi-Emmy Award-winning summer television series, “Havoline Football Saturdays,” continues its eleventh season this summer with Episode 3. The series, with six one-hour episodes, is hosted by Tim Brando and syndicated in 92 markets throughout the country.
This week’s show features legendary Syracuse running back Floyd Little. The only three-time All-American running back at Syracuse, Little helped immortalize the number 44, following Jim Brown and Ernie Davis. He joined those two Syracuse legends in the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983. Little was known as “The Franchise” for the Denver Broncos and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010. He is now back on campus at Syracuse as special assistant to the athletics director. Hear how a conversation with Davis led Little to Syracuse and not the U.S. Military Academy and the reason for his nickname in Denver.
Road Trip to Pittsburgh with Tommy Kane as the Panthers host their first ACC game. After visiting the world famous Primanti Brothers for a bite to eat, T-K checks out the sights of the Steel City, including the Duquesne Incline. Then it’s on to the pregame bonfire on campus where Pitt Head Coach Paul Chryst helps build excitement for the game. Finally, Pitt takes the field against FSU and Tommy gets a firsthand narrative of the historic Pitt milestone from ACC Commissioner John Swofford.
