This American Athletic Conference game features an up and down UConn team going up against a surging South Florida squad.
South Florida’s offense has been great this year, but this is the type of game that UConn can win with some hard-nosed defense late in the 4th.
Bryant Shireffs had a quality game last week in the victory over Cincinnati. He finished the day 18-33 for 224 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
He also chipped in 52 yards on the ground. If he can avoid the strong South Florida pass rush look for him to make big plays late in the game.
Arkeel Newsome has had an up and down season so far. One week he is hot and then he follows it up with a weak performance.
Last week he had 14 carries for 116 yards so look for him to not reach the same numbers this week. I’m guessing he will get 50 yards rushing and reach the end zone on a short run.
Noel Thomas has been one of the breakout receivers in the conference this year. He has surpassed his reception total from last year, is averaging over 100 yards per game, and has 3 touchdowns.
He will continue his consistently strong play this week against a South Florida secondary known for shutting down opposing QBs.
The Huskies run defense was excellent last week.
They held Cincy to only 2 rushing first downs the entire game. They passing yardage should not be attributed to bad defensive play but an excess of passes called (56 total).
If the defensive line can have the same success this week stopping the run the Huskies will be able to pull the upset.
South Florida Bulls
I think I am one of the few people outside of Tampa on the Quinton Flowers bandwagon. He has been very good at the QB spot this year both throwing and running the ball.
In last weeks big win over ECU he threw 3 touchdown passes and also had 115 yards rushing.
He should be able to beat Uconn with his legs as I don’t see the defensive line being able to contain him. It won’t be surprising to see him have a 400 total yards game with 4 scores.
Marlon Mack has had two straight big games for the Bulls.
Last week he ran the ball 18 times for 152 yards and 2 scores and I look for another big game from him against Uconn. He won’t reach 100 yards because Flowers will do most of the heavy lifting, but he will get reach the end zone.
Rodney Adams came up huge in the win against ECU. He had 7 catches for over 100 yards and a score. His speed will cause headaches for the Huskies secondary and he should have at least one grab over 30 yards on the day.
The Bulls defense shut down ECU’s passing attack last week. If they can play at that level for the second straight week they should have an easy victory.
