GAME DAY VS Georgia Tech

The Bulls and Yellow Jackets will meet for the first time as USF looks for its fourth straight win vs. a Power Five opponent. The Bulls are 5-1 vs. P5 teams in their last six meetings, including a pair of bowl victories. The lone loss came to No. 13 Florida State (55-35) in 2016 in Raymond James Stadium. The Bulls are 7-10 all-time vs. ACC opponents, but have won two of the last three meetings, downing Syracuse twice.

POWER RUN GAMES: USF and Georgia Tech are among just four teams nationally to rank in the Top 10 in rushing in each of the past three seasons. USF ranked 8th (264.1 ypg) in 2017 while Tech was 5th (307.4). Tech returns its top two rushers (both over 1,000 yards) and 90.4 percent of its 3,381 rushing yards from 2017, while USF is replacing its top three rushers and 92 percent of its 3,169 rushing yards from 2017.

TECH TIES: USF Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator Brian Jean-Mary served as linebackers coach at Georgia Tech from 2004-09. He was a part of current Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson’s first staff at Tech and helped the Yellow Jackets to the 2009 ACC Championship game played in Tampa (Tech’s last trip to Raymond James Stadium) and the 2009 FedEx Orange Bowl.

ON A ROLL: USF has gone 22-4 since the start of 2016, including 9-1 in out-of-conference games (two bowl wins) with the only loss coming to No. 13 Florida State in 2016. The Bulls have posted a 17-3 record in Raymond James Stadium over the past four seasons and are in the midst of the most successful run in program history (30-9 (76.9) since 2015) that includes a 29-6 mark in the last 35 games, which ranks among the top six in the nation over that time.
