For a little while in the third quarter Saturday night USF was handing their American Conference game to UConn. The Bulls turned the ball over three times in the third and the Huskies quickly capitalized with two TD’s to turn a 14-3 deficit into a 17-14 lead.

But, as we documented this week at F.F.I., the Bulls can score in a hurry and QB Quinton Flowers and RB Marlon Mack led the charge with 28 points after that, and USF won easily 42-27.

For his part, Flowers ran for 157 yards and 3 TD’s plus threw two more for his first 5 combined TD game of his USF career.

 

Mack, meanwhile, had 107 yards rushing for his fourth 100 yard game of the season and added the other TD.

USF is now 6-1 for the first time in program history and continues to extend more history: Saturday was the 12th straight game dating back to last year the Bulls have rushed for 200 or more yards in a game. That’s the longest streak in the NCAA. Also, the Bulls surpassed 35 points for the 11th straight game, which is also tops in D-1 football.
