Week 1

1) USF's Game

SAT 08/30 -- 7:00pm -- Tennessee-Martin (0-0, 0-0) @ #19 South Florida (0-0, 0-0) -- [GAMEPLAN  |  Catch 47]


2) Games involving one or more schools on USF's 2008 schedule.

#30 Cincinnati (1-0, 0-0)  40   -  Eastern Kentucky (0-1, 0-0)    7

#39 Connecticut (1-0, 0-0)    35  -  Hofstra (0-1, 0-0)    3

#26 South Carolina (1-0, 0-0)    34  -  North Carolina State (0-1, 0-0)  0

Northwestern (1-0, 0-0)  30  -  Syracuse (0-1, 0-0)  10

Bowling Green (1-0, 0-0)  27  -  #25 Pittsburgh (0-1, 0-0)  17

#8 West Virginia (1-0, 0-0)  48  -  Villanova (0-1, 0-0)  21

Central Florida (1-0, 0-0)  17  -  South Carolina State (0-1, 0-0)  0

#14 Kansas (1-0, 0-0)  40  -  Florida International (0-1, 0-0)  10

Kentucky (1-0, 0-0)  27  -  Louisville (0-1, 0-0)  2

#27 Fresno State (1-0, 0-0)  24  -  #34 Rutgers (0-1, 0-0)  7


3) Games involving Notre Dame because of its ties to Big East bowl games.

#47 Notre Dame (0-0, 0-0) -- IDLE


4) Games involving teams two ranked teams and at least one of the teams is ranked higher than the 2nd highest Big East team.

If the highest and 2nd highest teams can move up and up the polls, then there is at least a chance that 2 Big East teams could make the 10 BCS slots.  Big East ranks: #8 West Virginia, #19 South Florda

Alabama (1-0, 0-0)  34  -  #9 Clemson (0-1, 0-0)  10

#6 Missouri (1-0, 0-0)  52  -  #20 Illinois (0-1, 0-0)  42


5) Games involving a Top 12 non-BCS team, or a Top 16 non-BCS team ranked higher than any BCS conference's highest ranked team.

If no teams from the non-BCS conferences make the BCS, then that would mean 4 at-large slots in the 5 BCS bowls.  This increases the chances for 2 Big East teams to be selected.

There are no Top 12 non-BCS teams or Top 16 non-BCS teams still ranked ahead of a BCS conference's higest ranked team:

Highest ranked non-BCS team: #16 Brigham Young

Lowest ranked BCS conference's highest ranked team: #9 Clemson (ACC)

      (SEC: #1, Big Ten: #2, Pac 10: #3, Big 12: #4, Big East: #8)


6) Other games of interest, including teams ranked near USF.

USF is #19 in the AP poll.

#23 Wake Forest (1-0, 0-0)  41  -  Baylor (0-1, 0-0)    7

#7 Louisiana State (1-0, 0-0)  41  -  Apalachian State (0-1, 0-0)  13

East Carolina (1-0, 0-0)  27  -  #17 Virginia Tech (0-1, 0-0)  22

#3 Southern Cal (1-0, 0-0)  52  -  Virginia (0-1, 0-0)  7

#11 Texas (1-0, 0-0)  52  -  Florida Atlantic (0-1, 0-0)  10

#15 Arizona State (1-0, 0-0)  30  -  Northern Arizona (0-1, 0-0)  13

#21 Oregon (1-0, 0-0)  44  -  Washington (0-1, 0-0)  10

#41 UCLA (1-0, 0-0)  27]  -  #18 Tennessee (0-1, 0-0)  24    OT

All times are Eastern.  Ranks used are AP rankings.

Thanks Jim, but I think that EKU plays at Cincy, and Hofstra plays at Uconn.

Thanks BBM... corrected.

KingBull... this is year three for this format... I liked Normal's preview, too. This just gives you a little more of what games have an impact on USF.

I like that almost every game with a ranked team gives me someone to root for...except I won't mind at all if Texas manhandles Florida Atlantic.

I'd really like to be able to watch every single one of these games were future USF opponents play.  If I were a coach with USF I would watch them all for tape and practice.

    “This is not a broken football program by any means. It just needs to be united, to get everybody on the same page, share that same vision, and really to have that standard - best is the standard.”

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."

    Terry Lucas, 09/26/22
