South Florida @ UCF
Current Record: South Florida 2-9; UCF 7-4
What to know
The South Florida Bulls have gone the wrong way in a one-sided rivalry with the UCF Knights and are hoping to score their first win since November 26, 2016. South Florida and UCF will go head to head in a game between American Athletic at 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday at Bounce House. The Bulls are hoping to patch holes in the defense that have allowed for an average of 36.27 points per game.
South Florida suffered a grim 45-14 defeat to the Tulane Blue Wave this past Saturday. South Florida was in a difficult position in the first half, with the score already 35-7. South Florida loss comes despite a quality game from RB Kelley Joiner, who punched in a hasty touchdown.
Meanwhile, when you end up 228 yards ahead of the competition as UCF did this past Saturday, a favorable result will almost certainly follow. They overcame the Connecticut Huskies 49-17. With the Knights leading 35-14 in the half, the game was over. RB Johnny Richardson had a stellar game for UCF as he dashed for a TD and 147 yards in 14 executions in addition to grabbing a received TD.
The Bulls must know that they will be fighting an uphill battle by the 18.50 point margin they are up against. Those burned by picking them up over the spread this past Saturday may want to note that the team has yet to beat head-to-head games by the margin this season.
UCF’s win lifted them to 7-4 while defeat in South Florida dropped them irretrievably 2-9. We’ll see if the Knights can repeat their recent success or if South Florida recovers and reverses their fortunes.
