South Florida (10-2) vs South Carolina (6-6)

 

When South Florida Has The Ball: The Bulls are a running team, they rank 5th nationally in rushing yards. Tailback Marlon Mak and quarterback Quinton Flowers combined for over 2500 yards and 30 touchdowns. This will be a tough task for a South Carolina team that wasn’t very stout against the run. Defensive lineman Darius English will need to better his average of 1 TFL per game in order to force the Bulls into longer rushing situations.

 

When South Carolina Has The Ball: The Gamecocks struggled offensively this season. Rico Dowdle was the team’s leading rusher with only 714 yards while Deebo Samuel amassed just over 500 yards and no touchdowns as the leading receiver. It’s tough to see how South Carolina is going to be able to keep pace with South Florida.

 

Analysis: The saving graces for Will Muschamp are threefold; turnover margin, recruited talent, and Willie Taggart leaving for Oregon. USC hasn’t done much with whatever talent they have acquired, although they typically play more talented teams, and Willie Taggart's absence on the sidelines shouldn’t have a huge impact on the Bulls production. If, however, they Bulls turn the ball over a few times where they normally wouldn’t then the Gamecocks are in business.


Prediction: South Florida 27 - USC 20
