Houston is far from elite this season but they are still good enough to put a scare in USF. They won at Arizona to start the season. A win that looks better every week.
South Florida has answered every question so far. They are creeping towards a date with UCF that could be kind of epic. They just have to keep staying focused.
The Cougars are having a so-so season. We all knew it was going to be a step down from what we have seen the last couple of years but it might be a little worse. They have lost their last two – both as favourites.
The biggest change is probably at quarterback. You know what they say when you are playing more than one quarterback. Kyle Postma has been starting lately but he makes a lot of mistakes.
Ed Oliver was a beast last season but this season he has been more easily contained. He is their biggest difference maker on either side of the ball so he will have to be a factor for Houston to stay in it.
South Florida Bulls
South Florida is 7-0 but I though they would be more impressive. They are just 4-3 ATS and have let teams with marginal talent stay in the game with them which is dangerous.
Before the season Quinton Flowers was a sleeper Heisman candidate. If they keep winning he keeps his name in there but his numbers are down from a year ago.
The defense is also less dominating than I thought it would be. These points are all connected. Nothing is wrong with the team but they are not making a splash. If they wan’t the big prize just winning might not be enough.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
The Bulls are back at home and this is a matchup they can dominate. I think there might be a little extra value because of last week’s snoozer against Tulane.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: South Florida
Last week’s game against Tulane was not truly a scare but it might have gotten the attention of the Bulls. They have to play things out.
I am guessing that coach Strong will use it as an opportunity to refocus a group that needs some challenge right now. That and their talent should yield an easy win.
