The USF Bulls win another close one, fighting off the late charging Tulsa Golden Hurricane.  USF showed off their high powered offensive abilities early, but followed that up with three quiet quarters and let Tulsa get very close to a big upset.

The USF women’s soccer team will advance to round two of the NCAA Tournament after easily defeating Florida Gulf Coast, 3-0 on Saturday. 


If it was a test, they did not pass.  The USF Bulls lost to Morgan State, 63-53, a game that looked like it should have been an easy win for the Bulls.  Morgan State came into the game, 0-1, having been handed a humiliating 76-59 loss at the hands of Binghampton University (it’s a real place).  And, if the loss doesn’t sting enough, the Bears were missing their top player, Tiwian Kenndley. 

The #23 / 22 USF women’s basketball team posted their first win of the season over the LSU Tigers, 61-55 on Friday night, the first game of a USF doubleheader.  The unranked Tigers (also receiving votes) gave USF a fight for four quarters. 


The USF Bulls squeaked out a win over the FAU Owls, 60-59 on Friday night.  The Owls had the ball at their end of the court with a chance to score with more than 11 seconds on the clock, but a missed three-point attempt sealed the victory for the Bulls.


USF athletic director, Mark Harlan, announced the plan to build a new, 160,000 square foot football center, the centerpiece of which being an indoor practice field.  While the indoor field will be a big help with the frequent bad weather problems that have doomed past football practices, it is only one facet of a more impressive investment into the football program and its student athletes. 

The USF women’s soccer team are American Conference champions after beating #8 / #6 UCF in the conference championship tournament. 

TheBombasticBull has won again, returning to a first place tie with McIntyre2k7, with four wins on the season.  TheBombasticBull barely edged out usf_fan, who also picked an eight point differential.  However, the win goes to the lowest point average variance percentage per the original game rules, and that means that TheBombasticBull beats usf_fan, 14%-19%. Please place your predictions here for the Tulsa game on 11/16. 

USF quarterback, Quinton Flowers, had a career day, amassing more than 500 yards of total offense to help his USF Bulls rebound from their loss last week to Houston and defeat the UConn Huskies, 37-20, in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score.
