USF- UConn 15th Edition
USF leads the all time series 9-5 (7-5 in conference) and have won 5 in a row. USF has played UConn more than any other opponent other than Cincinnati which it has also played 14 times to date.

USF-UConn since we became conference mates. Words cannot describe the ugliness of this series. Arguably 2009 was the only entertaining game for people not fans of either team.

2000 - We beat the Huskies in Connecticut 21-13. This was UConn's transitional year from 1-AA to 1-A and was USF's 1st win against a 1-A opponent.

2001- We crush the huskies 40-21 in the return trip to Tampa.

2005 - We lose 15-10.  The infamous voodoo 5 game.

2006 - We beat UConn 38-16. Never in doubt.

2007- We lose 22-15, a week after the Rutgers' "illegal forward propulsion call", as we throw a pick in the endzone and have a turnover returned for a touchdown

2008- We beat UConn 17-13 in an ugly game

2009- We lose 29-27 in the snow on a last second field goal by UConn

2010 - We lose 19-16 on a last second field goal where UConn does not score an offensive touchdown. They go to the Fiesta Bowl.

2011- We lose 16-10 where UConn does not score an offensive touchdown

2012- We beat UConn 13-6. BJD's career ends at USF with an injury. 3d Game in a row against us that UConn offense doesn't score. 

2013- We beat Uconn 13-10. We repay Uconn by winning without scoring an offensive touchdown.

2014- We beat Uconn 17-14 in a monsoon.

2015- We beat UConn 28-20. This was the game right after the Syracuse game where xCWT let the offense loose.

2016- We beat UConn 42-27 despite losing the turnover battle with 4 turnovers to Uconn's 0. This game also gave us this ridiculous Q run at 0:27

TBP AAC Week One Power Poll Results
After Week One in the American Athletic we have a team at 2-0 (South Florida) and a team still 0-0 (Houston).

UCF's win over FIU was impressive enough to garner seven first place votes.  Navy's win, over FAU, was also decisive.  The Midshipmen collected three first place votes. Both UCF and Navy demonstrated capable offenses .  

South Florida captured all 35 first place votes in the preseason poll.  Their performance, not all that impressive over Stony Brook,  lost them first place votes and left the Bulls with a very narrow lead over second place UCF.

Image Gallery:  Bulls vs Stony Brook
Our site photographer, @Old Baldy , was patrolling the sidelines Saturday and has uploaded some of his shots to our sister site, BullsGallery.com.  Please visit BullsGallery.com to see the images and others we've gathered over the years.  Old Baldy's picture quality is superb, I think.  Sure beats what I've taken in the past and uploaded to Bulls Gallery.  Here's a sample:


And of course, Old Baldy is always looking for good fan shots, too!

The TBP Gallery Challenge
Trying to get more folks with the community feel and use of the board, I'm hoping members attending the game Saturday will utilize their phones to grab some on-scene photos whether it be at the tailgate or while storming the field after the win over Stony Brook.

For the way game last week, I managed to put up dozens of photos quite easily.  Some were viewed 120+ times so people cared to check out the happenings in San Jose:  http://www.thebullspen.com/gallery/category/32-bulls-at-sjsu/

There is an album out there, ready for Bulls/Seawolves images:


Please upload your images, it's really simple to do.

I'll select a handful of the best photos and we'll have a vote for the absolute best photo and that member will win a prize.  We'll make it into a competition, since we're almost all that type.

IF you want to test the process today, please do.  I'll remove test images later today.

Remember, people, for me and some others this is going to be a TV game.  Anything you can do to share the atmosphere is always appreciated by the out of towners.

Supporting USF
We all have ways we support USF, as we close in on a new academic year/athletic season, I want to challenge all of us to find new ways to support USF and do it in addition to the ways we already support USF. 


For most on this board the most obvious ways to support are:

Season Tickets and Bulls Club Donations that are tied to the seats we buy. 

We should all look to find new ways to support USF, based on what we can afford to give (and sometimes, that is just time, which is totally ok). Here are a few ways that maybe you didn't think of:

Give to the Bulls Club in addition to what is required for your seats. 

Buy an extra season ticket to take a friend to each game.

Attend a USF event (like a play)

Get a USF license plate (the Official State of Florida one)

Go to more USF sporting events (lots of good teams to support)

Mentor a USF student

Shop at a sponsor of USF and tell the owner that is why you are there. 

Give to your college at USF (like the College of Business for me)

Buy an extra piece of official USF gear

Ask media outlets for more USF coverage

Go to a sports bar and ask them to turn on the USF game

Hire a USF grad

Become a member/lifetime member of the Alumni Association

Tour the campus

Support USF coverage on fans sites like this one. 

Go to a road/bowl game.

Display your USF diploma

(I'd love others to add other suggestions in the comments). 

Now - I do have a specific plug. I work under the larger umbrella of Student Affairs and Student Success. A big part of our focus is retaining and graduating USF students. We have made great strides in those areas, but we need to keep improving. This is the front lines on the battle for preeminence and eventually AAU membership. Consider throwing $10-$20 towards this important USF fund: https://usffdn.usf.edu/herdfunder/261/  But don't do it instead of something else you were doing to support USF, do it in addition to what you already do for USF.
