American Conference rivals, South Florida will get together for their annual meeting this week. The Bulls are still undefeated, while the Huskies have only one win on the year. If Connecticut can pull the upset, it will likely end any chance the Bulls have of making it to a New Years’ Six Bowl Game.
When these two schools met last year, South Florida won by a score of 37-20. The Huskies were a 23 point underdog in this game so they did end up covering the spread.
Connecticut has not won a game in over a month, with the last win coming in the middle of September. The Huskies are quite possibly the worst team in the entire country and do not seem to be anywhere close to a winning team.
The Huskies offense is almost non existent, as they only score 20.3 points per game. In only one game this year have the Huskies scored more than 21 points and that was against FCS school, Rhode Island.
The Huskies defense is by far the worst in the entire country. They rank in last or second to last in nearly every defensive category. Part of the reason they are so bad is they allow 53.7 points per game. They also allow 658.2 total yards per game. Do not expect for the Huskies to start playing well against the Bulls.
South Florida Bulls
South Florida is currently 6-0 and 2-0 in the American Conference. They had a scare last week against Tulsa, but managed to squeeze out a one point win. The Bulls cannot afford to lose if they want to remain in the talks for a good bowl game. They also need to win to keep pace with undefeated rival, UCF.
The Bulls do not have great numbers offensively, but they do have a top 15 offense when it comes to total yards per game. They run a balanced offense and average over 200 passing yards and rushing yards per game, making them a threat in the air and on the ground. Quarterback, Blake Barnett will need to play a much cleaner game, but the Bulls still should have no trouble in this contest.
The Bulls do not have a flashy defense like a lot of other schools do. They have played well enough to get the job done, but in a game against one of the teams at the bottom of division one football expect them to play much better than they have so far this year.
