We have reached week three of the college football season which means most of the games this weekend are non-conference showdowns. That is the case in this game when the South Florida Bulls make the trip to Soldier Field to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini.
Last year these two teams played with the Bulls winning the game in a shootout.
South Florida Bulls
It’s the second year under head coach Charlie Strong and the South Florida Bulls couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season.
In the last game they were three point underdogs to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets but that didn’t seem to bother them as they ran up the score on the way to a 49-38 victory.
The Bulls are led at quarterback by Blake Barnett who has been really good this year coming into this game having thrown for 507 yards, five touchdowns and one interception.
INn this game the Bulls just need to try and run up the score. The higher the scoring this game the better the chance they will be able to turn this one into blowout city.
Illinois Fighting Illini
On the other side of this matchup is the Illinois Fighting Illini who also come into this game with a 2-0 record but neither of the games have been impressive.
They opened the season beating a really bad Kent State team by only three points an in their last game they took on an FCS level team.
The stats actually look decent for the Fighting Illini but don’t let that fool you they aren’t a very good team and are going to need to have an amazing showing for a chance to pull the upset in this game.
