It’s #UCFHateWeek and the USF Bulls are looking to make history against their rival. If the Bulls win on Saturday they will become the first ten-win team in program history. And accomplishing that feat against the mouth breathers from Orlando will make it that much sweeter.

Harris has had quite the career at USF. He is one of four seniors (S Nate Godwin, RG Dominique Threatt and CB Johnny Ward) to start at least one game in each season as a Bull. He has a one-game advantage over Godwin for most career starts on the roster (39 to 38).

WR Rodney Adams and Harris were surprised at how big and heavy the trophy is. It’s over four feet tall and weighs 160 pounds.

Defensive Coordinator Raymond Woodie substituted liberally at SMU and Harris said that it was the freshest he’s felt in the fourth quarter of a game this year. By my count, 25 defensive players saw the field with 23 registering at least one tackle.

The senior wide out is one touchdown away from tying former WR Andre Davis’ career record of 17. He is 314 yards away from Davis’ record and is firmly entrenched as third all-time in catches behind Davis and Hugh Smith.

The Bulls beat the Knights 44-3 last year to cap off an incredible turnaround to the 2015 season. This time around, the Bulls need to win to keep the smallest chance of hosting the AAC title game alive if Temple somehow falls to ECU.

Taggart said he will not be watching the Temple game because he doesn’t want to do that to himself and he’s sure someone will send him a text. He instead will take his wife and kids out to dinner.

Injury Update:

Senat practiced today so that could be a good sign for him. I did not see Nadelman out there while I was waiting for the open portion of practice. I doubt he plays on Saturday.
