By now, you’ve digested the South Florida Bulls 25-24 miraculous comeback victory at Tulsa, read up on conference players of the week, a slight rise in the polls, and are awaiting the release of the newest edition of The Bulluminati Podcast.
Here’s everything else you missed in USF Athletics.
No. 17 Women’s Soccer (10-2-0, 5-1-0 AAC)
One of the greatest athletes in USF history, Evelyne Viens, broke the program record for career goals, finding the back of the net twice in a 2-0 win at No. 15 Memphis on Sunday.
The junior forward, and nation’s leading scorer, netted her 42nd career goal in the 47th minute and added another in the 60th minute. Viens is also just two goals away from breaking the USF record for goals in a season.
Winners of four straight, the first-place Bulls host Houston on Thursday at 7 p.m. and SMU on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Men’s Soccer (5-5-2, 2-0-2 AAC)
