  1. USF shut out the Knights for a War on I-4 sweep in Orlando, claiming the top spot in the conference with a 10-2 record in The AmericanView the full article
  2. Chicago, Illinois 09/15/2018 The Bulls entered the fourth quarter Saturday down 19-7 to Illinois. The Bulls defense had already begun to take the game back, holding the Illiini to just three points in the second half, coming on a Chase McLaughlin field goal with just under three minutes left in the third quarter. The Bulls’ offense, stymied much of the afternoon by drops, errant passes and penalties, finally found the rhythm in two scoring drives totaling 4:20. Both were called as “Blake Barnett to Darnell Salomon” with the first on a jump ball to the corner of the end zone on a Barnett rollout. The second a “blown coverage” pass down field in which Salomon bobbled the pass in open space but softly and surely pulled it in as he strode across the goal line for the 50 yard score. The two late touchdowns were in stark contrast to the previous three quarters of frustration which saw the Bulls running well, but struggling to score. A penalty negated a potential earlier score. So too, did the Bulls reluctance to kick in a couple of early fourth down situations. Add another penalty and the Bulls are punting instead of kicking for points. Leading the Bulls on the ground was Jordan Cronkrite who totaled 136 yards on 22 touches. It was Cronkrite’s three yard rushing TD (and PAT) that tallied the Bulls only points in the first three quarters. Barnett finished with 411 yards as the Bulls out-gained the Illini 626-380. Barnett added the two touchdowns to Salomon and ran for 17 yards. Barnett’s 411 passing yards were spread to Randall St. Felix (120 yards on 6 receptions), Mitchell Wilcox (109 yards on 8 receptions, career high yards, program high receptions by a tight end) and Darnell Salomon (95 yards on 5 receptions). Wide receiver Tyre McCants added 77 yards on 3 catches, including this incredible effort in a key fourth quarter drive. But it was the defense that turned the tide against Illinois, mush like against Georgia Tech a week ago. In addition to stifling the Illini’s ability to score beyond a field a goal in the second half, many defensive leaders set career highs. Linebacker Nico Sawtelle tallied a career high 13 tackles, Khalid McGee a career high 14 tackles and freshman Nick Roberts got his first start and totaled a career best 7 tackles. Defensive tackle Kevin Kelgler had another key and punishing QB sack late in this one. Kegler totaled 1.5 sacks a new high for the big man. That’s five in a row against “Power 5” opponents and the second in two seasons against the Fighting Illini. The Bulls return home to Raymond James Saturday for the conference opener against East Carolina. View full story
  3. September 15, 2018 The South Florida Bulls (2-0) resume play this weekend at Soldier Field against host Illinois (2-0). The Fighting Illini are off to an unimpressive start in 2018, coming from behind to beat both Kent State and Western Illinois at home. A win today would make the Illini 3-0, the first time since 2011 to reach that mark. During fall practice Lovie Smith remarked to writers that year three is the year to expect big results. Well, this week is the first week of potential big results. The Bulls are coming off a confidence boosting win over Georgia Tech and may still remember the 47-23 beating provided to the Illini in another NFL stadium – Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. USF is also looking to extend its streak of five straight wins over P5 programs. Big question marks exist for Illinois as a number of suspended players and injuries leave the roster depleted. Five suspended players impact the defensive backfield and some offensive positions. Coach Lovie Smith has not been clear on when the suspended players will return. They have been practicing, allegedly, on the practice squad this week. The Illini will feature a strong ground game, averaging 258.5 yards per game, good for 27th in the nation. It’s a balanced attack with running backs Reggie Corbin and Mike Epstein each totaling more than 130 yards through two games. South Florida struggled to stop the Yellowjacket ground game one week ago, surrendering 419 yards on the ground to the Tech triple option. Last season, the Bulls feasted on the return of former Buccaneer coach Lovie Smith and his flimsy Illinois defense. Quinton Flowers threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in the lopsided affair. Blake Barnett, the USF transfer QB, will look to keep his hot hand serving up completions to a stable of gifted receivers. Barnett is averaging more than 250 passing yards per game and an additional 58 on the ground, many of which came last week against an ACC defense. The Bulls are not without injury themselves and are hoping to see their leading rusher, Duran Bell, return as well as fellow running back Jordan Cronkite. A potential trap game for the Bulls coming off the win over Georgia Tech. First game away from Raymond James and with the first American Athletic Conference game at home next week, this game could end up a lot closer than Bulls fans and Illinois writers believe it will be. Still, the Florida Speed and skill players put this one out of reach for Lovie and the Illini, Bulls win 41-20. View full story
  4. USF Bulls Can Swat the Yellow Jackets in Week 2 The Bulls recorded their first win of the season, and it came against the Elon Phoenix, 34-14. The story of the day was the Arizona State transfer, Blake Barnett and his performance in his USF debut. He looked strong, completing 24 of 34 for 305 yards. Not only did Barnett bomb Elon with three TD passes, but he trucked one in on the ground as well. This Saturday, September 8th at 12:00 pm the USF Bulls will host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Raymond James Stadium. Even though the Bulls are at home, they are coming in as the underdogs to Georgia Tech. With the legalization of sports betting in various states, wagering on college football is becoming more and more popular. If you plan on wagering money on the Bulls or other teams, be sure to check and compare online outlets like Bovada to make sure that you are secure. What Happened in Week 1 The Yellow Jackets pounded the ball on the ground against the Alcorn State Braves. Granted, it isn’t saying much considering the defensive front that Georgia Tech was facing, but 439 rushing yards is still something that needs to be noted. Despite a 41-0 win, the Yellow Jackets didn’t look great. Paul Johnson even stated, “I didn’t like how we played, considering who we were playing.” QB, TaQuon Marshall threw a pick in the first half as well as several bad throws. RB, Jordan Mason, gave up the ball with a fumble. And Shawn Davis, the placekicker, booted one directly into the uprights during a routine PAT. The competition wasn’t fierce against the Phoenix, but Elon is tougher than Alcorn State by a longshot. It’s Charlie Strong’s second year, and this could be where things really start to come together under his tenure. A big win against a traditionally more powerful program like GT would go a long way in solidifying a big bowl game for the Bulls. Bulls Can Swat the Jackets Yes, the Yellow Jackets are the favorites, but many models actually show the Bulls winning this game by a touchdown. Georgia Tech has only won one out of their last five road games and is 3-5 over their last eight games. Meanwhile, USF is 8-2 over their last 10. It’s a team in decline against a team on the rise. Barnett will continue to drop bombs all over the Georgia Tech secondary. Remember, he was recruited under Nick Saben before transferring over to the Sun Devils. He has a great target in Randall St. Felix, and they could hook up for a couple of touchdowns. But the biggest issues for the Yellow Jackets is they have to face the USF defense. Georgia Tech played sloppily against a team that could be beaten by some high school programs. The USF secondary pulled down 15 interceptions last year, and the Alcon State Braves were able to get a pick off GT. If they go to the air, there will be turnovers. So the Yellow Jackets are likely to keep the ball on the ground. They will score, but in a shootout where one team can effectively launch the ball down the field and score quickly against one that has to rely on the run game, the outcome will favor the passing team. USF gets the win in a tough surface and air battle. View full story
