The South Florida Bulls visit the Connecticut Huskies in week two of the season. Both teams are undefeated going into week two. The Bulls have beaten San Jose State and Stony Brook, while the Huskies beat Holy Cross last week at home.
This week 2 game is important for both teams.
They open American football conference play against each other this weekend, making this game just as important as every other game that will be played by both teams in 2017.
South Florida Bulls
The South Florida Bulls have looked suspect the first two weeks under Charlie Strong’s leadership as head coach. The South Florida roster is loaded with talent, but has yet to prove they are worthy of being ranked 21st in the country.
The Bulls struggled through the first three quarters against San Jose State in week one.
They trailed until half way through the second quarter then turned it on, getting the 42-22 road win. Last week the Bulls did the same against FCS Stony Brook. Stony Brook led 10-7 at halftime, then the Bulls got serious for the 31-17 win.
For the Bulls sake, let’s hope the team is still getting use to Strong’s coaching style. With two unconvincing victories over the first two week’s, wins are wins. Quinton Flowers and South Florida face another opponent in Connecticut who they should blow out of the water this week. They hope.
Connecticut opened the season at home with a win against FCS Holy Cross. The Huskies trailed at home 20-7 against the Crusaders at halftime, then somewhat turned it on the in the second half, earning the win 27-20.
The Huskies defense did a good job in the second half shutting out the Crusaders.
The Huskies defense gave up 447 total yards to FCS Holy Cross. Holy Cross had more first downs (24) and more passing yards (358) than the Huskies. The Huskies did defend the run well, allowing just 89 yard on the ground to Holy Cross.
Connecticut needs to be better on both sides of the ball if they want a win against the South Florida. If the defense looks like they did in week one, expect a long day for the Huskies at home in this one.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
The Huskies are suspect all over the field. Giving up close to 450 total yards of offense to an FCS school is unacceptable. South Florida is bigger, faster, more experienced and better than the Huskies.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: South Florida -17.
South Florida’s Quinton Flowers should have a career day against Connecticut. The dual threat quarterback should be familiar enough with coach Strong’s offense to get an important, early season conference win.
Connecticut will have their work cut out for them. The Huskies offense will need to play a lot better this week if they want to get a win. The game may start out slow, but in the end, the Bulls will cover the 17 point spread. Take the South Florida in this one.
