BIG EAST FOOTBALL PREVIEW: WEEK #2 SOUTH FLORIDA
September 4, 2008
After watching several Big East football teams stumble all over themselves in week #1, it was refreshing to see South Florida do no such thing as they stomped on Tennessee Martin early, scoring 28 1st quarter points, in a 56-7 victory.
The task is tougher this weekend as the Bulls travel to meet in-state rival Central Florida on Saturday evening. UCF will have a nice Saturday night crowd under the lights and motivation after being humiliated 64-12 last season.
The Bulls have some tough games ahead of them with dates against Kansas and a trip to NC State in their out of conference schedule, so looking past UCF is a possibility. The Bulls have talent with Mike Ford at running back and Matt Grothe at QB, so expect them to have the leadership at key positions to get the job done.
The NCAA Football Odds indicate USF is a 14-point road favorite. Look for UCF to kick it up a notch and, while the Bulls have more talent, the Knights will keep this game from getting out of hand with some inspired play.
