What you need to know about South Florida
South Florida has to be hurting after a devastating 41-17 loss at the hands of the SMU Mustangs last week. The Bulls were unable to contain QB Tanner Mordecai who threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns. Mordecai also had 28 rushing yards as South Florida gave up over 160 yards on the ground.
Defense -- and offense -- has been a problem for the Bulls all year as they rank 114th in the nation in scoring and 116th in points allowed. The passing game for South Florida has been nearly non-existent as the plethora of quarterbacks has combined for just one passing touchdown compared to four interceptions. However, there is a cause for optimism as USF passed for 223 yards vs. SMU which was its first time topping 200 yards.
What you need to know about Tulsa
Meanwhile, Tulsa didn't have too much breathing room in its contest with the Memphis Tigers on Saturday, but it still walked away with a 35-29 victory. Among those leading the charge for Tulsa was RB Shamari Brooks, who rushed for two TDs and 126 yards on 26 carries.
Brooks has been a workhorse for Tulsa as his 661 career carries are the second-most in AAC history. He played USF once before in 2018 and rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns. He has 14 career 100-rushing yard games and the Golden Hurricane are 7-7 in those contests.
