The Bulls struggled often defensively last year, but they are showing the ability to take the ball away in the early going and have not allowed a point in the third quarter in the first three games. “It’s a different feeling (from last season) because the defense is playing lights out,” USF’s leading rusher senior Darius Tice (256 yards) told reporters. “This is a new feeling.” Junior defensive back Ronnie Hoggins and sophomore linebacker Nico Sawtelle lead a balanced unit with 18 tackles each while both own an interception for the Bulls, who are 14th in the nation in rushing defense (89.3 yards) after permitting just 67 last Friday against Illinois.
The South Florida defense played well against the Minutemen last Friday. They only allowed 354 total yards, and held Illinois a 6 for 15 mark on third downs. The Bulls defense isn’t anything to write home to mom about, but can hold teams down enough for their offense to out score them. Something to consider is they are 14th in the nation against the run, which bodes well since the Owls had their way with them in the trenches last time out.
The senior signal-caller is off to strong start to the year, amassing 678 passing yards with 8 touchdowns and two interceptions. The dual-threat athlete has also tallied 243 rushing yards and is proving to be one of the most potent college quarterbacks in the nation. He threw for two touchdowns and ran for another when these two schools met in South Florida last season.
