What’s Going To Happen
Just win, South Florida.
USF at 9-1 is just fine, even with the loss to Houston a few weeks ago. The schedule isn’t all that great, and the team has lost its offensive mojo a bit, but if it can get by Tulsa this week, then it’s time focus on the big prizes.
Win this week, beat UCF in Orlando on Friday, and then it’s off to the American Athletic Conference Championship. Win that, and it’s off to the big stage of a New Year’s Six bowl in Charlie Strong’s first season.
This is Tulsa’s bowl game. It’s a national stage moment to screw everything up, and hand UCF the AAC East along the way.
The Golden Hurricane haven’t been able to get their offense going, the defense has been a disaster, and now they’re playing out the string with Temple to close things out next week.
There’s one slight problem – the Tulsa run defense is next-level miserable.
The third-worst in college football, the Tulsa run D gives up 271 yards per game.
However, Tulsa did hammer the Houston team – 45-17 – that beat USF.
To be fair, the run D has been better over the last month, and since the 488-yard, eight-score debacle against SMU, it was only really ripped up once by SMU two weeks ago, but this is USF’s moment to get everything going again.
The Bull running game that made 300-yard days a weekly thing will be at it from the start, the defensive front will live in the Tulsa backfield, and this will quickly turn into the exact sort of dominant performance in the home finale needed to be ready for the Fighting Frosts.
