GAME DAY vs. Notre Dame

USF opened its 24th season of football and the Jeff Scott era with a 27-6 victory last Saturday to improve to 18-6 in season openers and make Scott the fourth Bulls head coach out of five to win their debut. The Bulls will now begin a difficult three-game road swing at No. 7 Notre Dame, which has won 19 straight at home. USF returns to South Bend for the first time since posting a 23-20 victory over the No. 16-ranked Irish to open the 2011 season. The 39-year-old Scott is the youngest coach in The American and leads one of the youngest staffs in America. USF added Notre Dame to the schedule in August and Saturday’s game will be the first of a three-game series that includes a game in Tampa, the first ever for the Irish, and a return to South Bend on dates still to be determined.

MAKING HISTORY: After opening the Jeff Scott era with a victory on the first Saturday of the season, on the second Saturday USF will play the first nonconference game in the tradition laden 132-season history of Notre Dame football, as the Irish became a conference member (AAC) this year for the first time since the program began in 1887.

VS. RANKED: USF is 11-28 all-time vs. FBS ranked opponents, with its last win coming on Oct. 28, 2016 with a 52-45 victory over No. 22 Navy in Tampa. The Bulls lost to three ranked teams last year and have lost their last six matchups with ranked foes. USF is 4-12 in road games at ranked opponents, but its last victory came at No. 16 Notre Dame, 23-20, in 2011. A win at No. 9 West Virginia in 2006 (24-19) is the highest ranked foe beaten on the road. USF downed No. 5 West Virginia (21-13) in Tampa in 2007 for the highest ranked foe beaten in program history, also the last top 10 foe defeated. USF has downed three top 10 teams in its history. A victory over No. 7 Notre Dame would rank as the second highest foe ever defeated in 24 seasons of USF football, and the highest ever on the road.

SERIES: USF leads, 1-0
IN TAMPA: Never met
IN SOUTH BEND: USF leads, 1-0
LAST: USF won, 23-20, in South Bend in 2011

Wow - we have not beaten a ranked opponent since 2016?  I guess I had forgotten that

The Charlie years just got worse in my mind and I did not think that was possible

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.

    "For me, I never considered it that way (as a stepping stone), honestly. When I was offered the head job at South Florida, and I'm sincere about this, I never thought I would ever go anywhere."
