GAME DAY vs. UCF

USF will travel to Orlando for the final game of the 2021 season as the Bulls look to end a four-game losing string in the War on I-4, an eight game road conference losing skid and an 11-game road losing streak dating to an Oct. 26, 2019 win at ECU. The Bulls are 3-3 all-time at UCF, but have lost in their last two trips, including an epic 49-42 loss in 2017 with both teams ranked in the Top 25 that stood as one of the best games in college football that season.

PREPARE FOR FIREWORKS: UCF came away with a 58-46 victory last season in Tampa as the teams combined for 104 points and 1,223 yards, with USF posting a season-best 646 yards, the sixth-best total in program history. The teams have combined for 79 or more points (with both teams scoring 30+) in three of the last five meetings, with at least one team scoring 34 or more points in each of the last six.

DEFENSIVE CHANGES: USF parted ways with defensive coordinator/safeties coach Glenn Spencer on Monday. Bulls linebackers coach Ernie Sims, a former Florida State All-American linebacker, and special teams coordinator Daniel Da Prato will split duties leading the Bulls’ defense in the final game of 2021.

SEEKING OFFENSIVE CONSISTENCY: The Bulls posted a season-best 42 points vs. No. 20 Houston and then scored 28 (21 in the second half) vs. No. 2 Cincinnati, the most given up on the year by a Bearcat defense that entered the game ranked No. 3 nationally in scoring defense giving up just 14.9 ppg. However, USF followed those performances up with 14 points and 297 yards in a loss at Tulane. USF entered the Tulane game averaging 31 ppg in starts with Timmy McClain under center and 34 ppg since the bye week.

SERIES: Tied, 6-6
IN TAMPA: Tied, 3-3
IN ORLANDO: Tied, 3-3, last UCF won 34-7 in ‘19

It's unfortunate that Cincinnati is on ABC at the same time so very little eyeballs on this game except for the faithful from both ends of I-4. 

GO BULLS!

I'll watch Cinci live, record ours and try to not ruin my day.  Picking up the grandkids at 4:30 so wouldn't be able to watch much anyway.

Why does anyone care about Cincy?  They will probably roll ECU and they are moving on, really couldn’t give less a **** about them if I tried. 

Just saying that the average day-after-Thanksgiving TV watching crowd looks at the guide to see what's on and chooses to watch the #4 team in the country play.  They've never heard of the American conference or USF or ECU, maybe UCF is in the far reaches of their minds.

GO BULLS!

I agree with you on that, was asking why NEB would care, I agree the casual fan would watch that one over our game.  Why would a USF fan be so vested in their play when we are playing at the same time.

It’s the first time a G5 team has a real ****…anyone who cares anything about CFB will have an interest.
