A history making night for USF, as the Bulls raced out to a big lead and then had to hang on a bit as Tulane got closer, but it still ended 34-28.
The Bulls had been slow starters all year, outscoring opponents only 43-38 in the first quarter.
However, Saturday night was a different story. The Bulls opened with a 10-play, 85-yard drive for a touchdown on its opening possession on Saturday night at Yulman Stadium and controlled the game from there.
A victory over the Green Wave gave USF its first-ever 7-0 start to a season. The 34 points is the modern NCAA Division One record with 24 straight games with at least 30 points scored.
Meanwhile, RB Darius Tice ended the night with a career high 141 rushing yards on 13 carries, 10.8 yards per carry on the night.
Senior quarterback Quinton Flowers totaled 265 yards for three touchdowns to help the Bulls garner their second conference road win against Tulane (3-4, 1-2). He hit Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the third quarter on this score:

Tice scored on a 30-yard run only a few moments after Tulane called its final timeout sealed the win for the Bulls.
The Bulls now put their perfect mark on line and host Houston next Saturday at Raymond James Stadium.
