If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our recap and breakdown of the South Florida Bulls 20-13 (not so pretty) win over East Carolina on Saturday and stay tuned for the latest edition of The Bulluminati Podcast.

Now it’s time for our weekly look at all the happenings off the football field in Bulls sports, and there is plenty to cover.

No. 18 Women’s Soccer (5-1)

After nearly three weeks off, the Bulls won their seventh straight game at home with an 11-0 victory over Florida College on Friday night.

As Carl recaps here, All-American Evelyne Veins and freshman Sydney Nasello both recorded hat tricks in the Bulls rout of the NAIA Falcons.

USF will hit the road for two American Conference contests beginning Thursday night at UConn and finishing with Temple on Sunday afternoon.

Men’s Soccer (2-5-1)

Stop what you’re doing and watch this Stephen Rudderham goal in the Bulls 2-2 draw at UConn from Saturday night.

Unfortunately, less than three minutes later the Huskies were able to find an equalizer. Nobody was able to find the back of the net in the double overtime periods, and the Bulls settled for a tie.

Sophomore Kori Cupid, a Trinidad and Tobago native, tallied the only other USF goal.

The Bulls return home Tuesday night for an out-of-conference match against Stetson at 7 p.m.

Volleyball (11-3, 0-1 AAC)

In one of the best on-campus atmospheres I've seen in quite a while, the Bulls dropped a heartbreaking five-set match (25-22, 20-25, 25-18, 23-25, 10-15) to C. on Friday night at the Corral.

After a back-and-forth first three sets, the Bulls fell behind 16-10 in the fourth set before fighting back to tie it 22-22 but couldn’t put together a big enough rally to complete the comeback.

USF did bounce back with a clean straight set victory (25-20, 25-16, 25-17) over UNF in Jacksonville on Sunday.

On Monday, junior outside hitter Jac’cara Walker was named to The American Honor Roll for a second straight week.

The Bulls will resume conference play on Friday night with a trip to Memphis.
