South Florida walks by Elon 28-13


Sept. 1

South Florida 28 ... Elon 13

Mike Ford scored three times and George Selvie came up with four sacks as South Florida had few troubles with the Elon Phoenix after the first half. It took a while for the offense to get going, but Ford was able to come up with a one-yard touchdown catch to start the scoring in the second quarter, a 20-yard dash early in the third, and a one-yard run to put it away in the fourth. Elon only managed two Andrew Wilcox field goals before finally getting into the end zone late in the fourth on a 26-yard Terrell Hudgins catch.

Player of the game ... South Florida RB Mike Ford ran five times for 77 yards and two touchdowns and caught one pass for a one-yard score

Stat Leaders:

Elon - Passing: Scott Riddle, 31-52, 204 yds, 1 TD, 1 iNT Rushing: T.J. Klegg, 15-41  Receiving: Terrell Hudgins, 13-81, 1 TD

South Florida - Passing: Matt Grothe, 22-38, 227 yds, 2 TD Rushing: Mike Ford, 5-77, 2 TD  Receiving: Carlton Mitchell, 5-35

Whoopty doo. What does it all mean, Basil? ... The Bulls didn't exactly open it up against Elon, mainly because they didn't need to. Several players got involved on both sides of the ball as the coaching staff truly used this as a preseason game before the showdown against Auburn next week. The pass rush kept the Phoenix under pressure all game long, and the secondary almost never allowed anything deep. Getting QB Matt Grothe on the move against the Tigers will be a key next week, but limiting mistakes will be even more important. Grothe was able to manage the game well, but the Bulls had too many penalties.
