Prediction:

South Florida hasn’t played as well in the trenches this year as most expected. But Pittsburgh quarterback Bill Stull will still see emense pressure from the Bulls in his first road start against the best in the Big East. It’ll be close, but USF rallied from a 14-7 deficit last year to outscore Pitt 38-23 in the second half. Each of the past five games in this series has been decided by nine or more points, so the key in this game will be which defense steps up more. We predict South Florida over Pittsburgh 34-20.
