We actually had the ball in the red zone SIX times and only scored on two of them. The four failed tries were: an INT, a failed fourth down on the 1, and two missed field goals (23 and 30). So if we actually had some offense going then this game would've been a disaster for the Orange, who was completely punished by the USF defense. As a whole, the defense gave up 67 TOTAL yards! Only 1 rushing yard. The only score for Syracuse was on that INT return, a 95-yarder.For USF, we compiled 263 yards of total offense. Grothe went 14-18 for 204 yards a score and an INT. Ford struggled, gaining just 52 on 17 and a TD. Marcus Edwards led all receivers with 3 receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown. Other notables: TJ Johnson (3-32) and Carlton Mitchell (3-37). George Baker recorded the INT and the only turnover caused by the Bulls' D. For Syracuse, Andrew Robinson went 13-18 for 66 yards and a pick. That's pretty much it.That brings USF up to 6-1 for the season and 1-1 in conference play. Unlike last season, it appears we have dodged the losing the streak, so far......AROUND THE BIG EAST: Cincy has had ANOTHER Bye Week , UCONN scored a TD with less than minute remaining to knock off Rutgers 38-34, Louisville defeated Mid Tenn State 45-28, Pitt got revenge on NAVY 31-3, and West Virginia had the week off.STANDINGS:West Virginia 6-0 (2-0)Pittsburgh 5-1 (2-0)Louisville 4-2 (1-0)USF 6-1 (1-1)UCONN 4-3 (1-1)Rutgers 4-3 (1-2)Cincinnati 3-2 (0-1)Syracuse 3-4 (0-3)Another game, another win.
