Collin Sherwin of The Daily Stampede dot com noticed a little slip of the tongue in the Golden Arm Award’s press release:
The Johnny Unitas @GoldenArmAward thinks Quinton Flowers is so good that USF re-named the school after him: "University of South Flowers" pic.twitter.com/BOeZGQAeE5— Collin Sherwin (@USFCollin) October 11, 2017

They rented a plane with a banner on the tail to fly over campus to promote the game.

Bring The Right Tickets To Saturday’s Game
This is an important one. USF was originally scheduled to play UMass this Saturday, but that game was canceled in order to fit in a full conference slate. Instead the Bulls are facing Cincinnati. Tickets for Saturday’s game will be honored based on the opponent printed on them, not the date.
In other words, do not bring UMass tickets to Saturday’s game. They will not get you in the stadium. Bring your tickets and parking passes that say Cincinnati, even if the date is wrong.
IMPORTANT‼️— USF Football (@USFFootball) October 11, 2017
For Saturday, bring your ticket with the Cincinnati logo! Ignore the date.
Ticket MUST SHOW USF vs Cincinnati.#BullStrong pic.twitter.com/aBIGufOnSi
We’ll go through the same thing in a couple of weeks with the USF-Houston game, so be prepared for that.
