Three Reasons Why You Should Watch The Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl

Both programs know how to come up with bowl wins. USF might have only six since 2008, but under five different coaches – TJ Weist stepped in for Willie Taggart for the 2016 Birmingham win over South Carolina – the Bulls have gone 5-1. Marshall has been even more reliable, winning the last six – five in a row under Doc Holliday – and 10 of the last 11 going back to the 1997 Motor City.

USF gets to play in its home stadium for its bowl game, and it’ll take all the help it can get after going on a five-game losing streak to sour the 7-0 start. The Bulls beat just one team that’s going bowling over those first seven games, and all five losses came against strong teams off to get a swag bag. The narrative for entire season will hinge on this.

– This is the prove-it moment for Marshall. It lost to both NC State and Virginia Tech, and the best win was … FIU? The Thundering Herd beat exactly one bowl team, fattening up on a whole slew of Conference USA cupcakes. Beating USF – even a struggling USF – would make the year.
