FINAL: USF 48, NIU 17. Haiku & Recap

NCAA Football: Miami Beach Bowl-Western Kentucky vs South Florida Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Quinton did a lot.
And if the Bulls play like this,
Syracuse gon die.

Quick hitters:

  • Quinton Flowers’ final line: 21-33, 350 yards, 4 TD’s, 0 INT’s, 11 carries, 53 yards.
  • Q’s 73-yard TD pass to Ryshene Bronson in the 1st quarter was his career long.
  • The Bulls finished with 7.4 yards per play, including 9.9 yards per play in the first half.
  • Total offense at half: USF 370, NIU 163.
  • Darius Tice with his first career 100-yard rushing game: 19 carries, 120 yards, 1 TD.
  • NIU averaged just 4.1 yards per play in the first half.
  • Auggie Sanchez finished with 13 tackles.
  • USF had 31 first downs, NIU 19.
  • Four different USF receivers caught a TD: D’Ernest Johnson, Chris Barr, Rodney Adams, and Bronson.
  • USF held Huskies and future NFL receiver Kenny Golladay to four catches for 43 yards.
  • Neither team had a turnover until Hassan Childs muffed a punt with 4:09 left.
  • Rodney Adams has a TD in nine of his last 11 games.
  • Our thoughts are with NIU’s Drew Hare, who was carted off with what looked to be a brutal leg injury.
