WHO: South Florida Bulls at No. 18 Florida Gators

WHERE: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville, FL

WHEN: 7:30 p.m.

TV/RADIO: SEC Network. 102.5 FM, Bulls Unlimited iHeart Radio

SERIES: Gators lead series 2-0

LINE: UF -23.5; Over/Under: 58

The South Florida Bulls face the Florida Gators inside The Swamp for just the second time in program history. The first meeting didn’t go well for the Bulls. The second meeting in Tampa in Tampa last season didn’t go well, either. The Gators are coming off a deflating loss to Kentucky last week so things may not go well for the Bulls tonight either.

USF needs to keep the game close—at least in the first quarter—if they don’t want a mutiny on their hands from the fan base. The Bulls have been down two or more scores after the first quarter in 10 of Jeff Scott’s 20 FBS games at the helm.

Can that change tonight? It’s unlikely the Bulls win, but they can at least make it semi-competitive for a little bit, right?
