ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -For anyone who thought it might be difficult for Matt Grothe and South Florida to get excited about playing what amounted to an extra home game, the Bulls and their dual-threat quarterback answered with a dominating performance in the first St. Petersburg Bowl.
Grothe moved ahead of West Virginia's Pat White as the Big East's career total offense leader, throwing for 236 yards and three touchdowns to on the way to a 41-14 victory over Memphis on Saturday.
USF (8-5) scored on four of its first five possessions to build a 24-14 halftime lead, forcing Memphis (6-7) to play catch-up and essentially taking 1,000-yard rusher Curtis Steele out of the Tigers' game plan.
