Once again, it appears the USF Bulls will fade from a football season withoout a peep.

A year ago, the Bulls lost their final six games of the season. This year, they are staring at losing their final five games of the year.

In both years, the Bulls did not win after October.

The Bulls lost their fourth consecutive games of the year, taking one between the eyes against Memphis 49-10. The Bulls led 10-7 after a quarter and then were steamrolled by the Tigers.

USF had just 44 yards passing and 126 yards rushing. Kelley Joyner had 116 yards rushing for the Bulls.

“You gotta give their team their credit," said USF coach Charlie Strong. "We didn’t play well. When you go out there and we play a good team like Memphis, we knew that all three phases had to play together, just knowing who they are, what they’ve done and how they’ve played the whole season. You get out there and we take the ball the opening drive and we go score to go up 7-0. Then we were able to get two turnovers there on defense and made it a short field and only got three points out of it, and missed another field goal. Then, we just could never get any rhythm at all going on offense. Then, it just beats down your defense.”


USF concludes its season Friday night In Orlando against USF. The game begins at 8 p.m.

FIU 30, Miami 24: The Hurricanes' offense was invisible through three quarters, and Miami ended up losing an embarrassing game to C-USA opponent Florida International.
