We have reached week five of the college football season and most teams have now entered the conference portion of the season.
It’s an AAC showdown in this one in Greenville, North Carolina.
The South Florida Bulls make the trip to take on the East Carolina Pirates. The two teams have faced off seven times in their history with the Bulls winning six of those games.
South Florida Bulls
People had high expectations coming into this season for the South Florida Bulls and so far they have lived up to the expectations although the schedule hasn’t been the toughest.
They have won all four games they have played in but only covered the spread in one of those games, although none of the games were really that close.
The strength of the Bulls team is the offense, and that is led by quarterback Quinton Flowers who has looked good for the most part this year although he still has an issue with sailing some throws.
He comes into this game having thrown for 774 yards and eight touchdowns. He has also thrown two interceptions and that number would probably be higher if playing a little better competition.
They should easily win this game but that shouldn’t be what they are focused on in this game. They need to make sure they are creating good habits on every play.
They can’t take this game for granted. They need to play this game hard and with a lot of intensity or they could be upset in this game.
East Carolina Pirates
On the other side of this match up is the East Carolina Pirates who have had a lot of struggles this year, which is expected with the type of schedule they have had to play.
They have had to play the likes of Virginia Tech and West Virginia, both teams who are ranked in the top 25 right now.
They do come into this game with a bit of confidence though as they just got their first win of the season last weekend against UConn.
The defense still really struggled in the game but the offense finally came around and that led them to a 41-38 victory.
To win this game the defense is going to need to be better. They can’t let Flowers through the ball wherever he wants.
If they can get pressure on him they can force him into mistakes but they are going to have to get the pressure on him early in the game to get him really rattled.
