LINE: Memphis -14.5; Over/Under 60
Well, it’s senior day for 17 Bulls, who will play their final home game today. The redshirt seniors have seen the full life cycle of USF Football. 2015: 8-5, first bowl game in five years, 2016: 11-2, first bowl win in six years, 2017: 10-2, first back-to-back 10 win seasons in program history, 2018: 7-0...you know the rest. And finally, 2019: 4-6, battling just to become bowl eligible.
There are many great players in this senior class like tight end Mitchell Wilcox, defensive ends Greg Reaves, and Kirk Livingstone, linebacker Patrick Macon, who have contributed significantly during their time in Tampa, and we can’t thank them enough.
The seniors got dealt a bad hand with some organizational things that were out of their control, and have had to battle back from it ever since.
The Bulls will have to go without senior running backs Jordan Cronkrite and Trevon Sands today as they battle injuries.
USF needs to be (nearly) perfect to win this game today. If you’re not going to the game due to your feelings about the head coach, please change your mind and go support these 17 men.
Anyway, come hang out in the comments.
Thank you seniors for your efforts.
