USF Bulls +14

The Bulls have bounced back from their poor start to the season and have won three of their last four games.

They are two wins away from becoming bowl eligible, but with two of their final four games coming against ranked opponents, they can’t afford to lose this game to the Owls.

The South Florida Bulls come into Thursday’s game after beating East Carolina by the score of 45-20 in their last game. 

USF quarterback Jordan McCloud completed 9 of his 12 passing attempts for 102 yards and 2 touchdowns as well as running 4 times for 49 yards. McCloud split time under center with Kirk Rygol who completed 6 of 12 passes for 74 yards and a touchdown.

 

The Pick:

The UCF squad has a great offense and the defense is not that bad either for UCF. Look for the Tulsa team to put up quite a battle in the game here, but continue to have some problems in the way the Golden Hurricane are able to play offensively in the game and not be able to contain the Knights offense. Final Score Prediction, UCF Knights win and cover ATS 42-24
 
UCF Knights +14, Over 50
