For once, a made-for-TV match-up lived-up to its billing on Saturday as #14 Miami Central defeated #2 Hoover in a showdown of Alabama and Florida high school football powers on ESPN.

The game between the two defending 2013 state champs came-down to a field goal with under a minute remaining to give the Rockets a 24-21 win over Hoover, which saw its 30-game win streak come to an end.  Beymar Piraquive booted a 31-yard field goal with :45 left to give the Rockets the victory.
