South Florida senior RB Darius Tice ran for 80 yards and a score on just nine carries in a 27-20 victory over Tulsa on Thursday.

Tice doesn't need many touches to make a difference in a game, and he showed that again against Tulsa on Thursday. His 57-yard burst through the Hurricane defense in the first quarter gave the Bulls a 14-7 lead in the first quarter; a lead they would never relinquish. It's the tenth touchdown on the season for the 5-foot-10, 205-pound senior, and he's one of the big reasons why the Bulls have a chance to win a conference championship. A marquee matchup against Central Florida comes next week.

South Florida senior QB Quinton Flowers completed just 11-of-28 passes for 142 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, and ran for 119 yards on 17 carries in a 27-20 victory over Tulsa on Thursday.

Flowers (6'0/215) was inaccurate throwing the football, which has become a fairly common theme for the senior quarterback this year. He also showed why he's one of the best running quarterbacks in college football, which has fortunately been a theme as well. He started the game off well, throwing two touchdown passes in the first quarter to give the Bulls a 21-7 lead at the end of one. After that there weren't many fireworks, but he made enough plays with his legs to avoid the upset loss. USF has a massive game next week against Central Florida.

USF senior CB Devin Abraham has made a case for "late-round consideration" this season, writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Abraham (5'9/187) has lined up at both CB and S this year while posting 36 tackles and four interceptions. "Abraham is vertically challenged and struggled with durability issues in the past but shows enough ability to line up as a dime back and coverage unit player on Sundays," Pauline wrote.

South Florida senior WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught six passes for 152 yards and a touchdown in a 37-20 victory over UConn on Saturday.

Valdes-Scantling (6'3/204) was the welcome recipient of a red-hot Quinton Flowers, and a terrible Connecticut defense. His touchdown was a 95-yarder where the wideout did the majority of the work after catching the ball right around the 12 yard line. Valdes-Scantling and USF have another friendly passing date next week against Tulsa.
Nov 4 - 6:53 PM

South Florida senior QB Quinton Flowers completed 24-of-37 passes for 385 yards with three scores, and ran for 131 yards in a 37-20 victory over UConn on Saturday.

This is the Flowers we saw for most of 2016, and then some. The ridiculously tough-to-tackle signal caller not only dominated the Huskies on the ground, but was efficient, accurate and made the right choice throwing the football time and time again. When Flowers is playing like this, USF is borderline unstoppable on offense. It helps that UConn can't defend anyone, but give a lot of credit to the senior quarterback today.
Nov 4 - 6:49 PM

South Florida sophomore RB Trevon Sands (undisclosed) did not travel with the team for Saturday's game against UConn.

Whether Sands is dealing with an injury or is being held back for another reason unrelated to health has not been divulged. The 5-foot-11, 201-pound sophomore is not an integral part of the offense and his absence should be viewed mostly as a depth blow.

South Florida senior QB Quinton Flowers was named one of the ten finalists for the Unitas Award on Thursday.

Flowers has been one of the best two-way threats at the quarterback position the last two years, and even if his numbers don't quite compare to his sensational 2016 season, he's still thrown for 12 scores and rushed for nine. The complete list of Unitas Award finalists is: J.T. Barrett, Ohio State; Riley Ferguson, Memphis; Ryan Finley, NC State; Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi St.; Quinton Flowers, South Florida Kenny Hill, TCU; Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma; Trace McSorley, Penn St.; Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State and Logan Woodside, Toledo
Nov 2 - 10:21 PM

South Florida senior QB Quinton Flowers completed 23-of-38 passes for 325 yards while rushing for two additional scores in Saturday's 28-24 loss to Houston.

We've been somewhat underwhelmed by what should be an explosive Bulls offense this season and Saturday's performance ended up as more of the same. While Flowers did earn himself a pair of touchdowns, he finished with just seven yards rushing. His darkhorse Heisman campaign is dead in the water at this point after he accounted for 42 total touchdowns a year ago.
Oct 28 - 8:34 PM

South Florida senior WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 10 passes for 186 yards in Saturday's 28-24 loss to Houston.

Valdes-Scantling (6'3/204) was phenomenal in this one even without finding the end zone. Alas for the Bulls, it just wasn't enough in what was a disappointing offensive show by the team as a whole. While the senior has now posted at least 90 yards receiving in four games on the year, consistency has not been his hallmark -- he has been held under 45 yards receiving in the other four contests.
Oct 28 - 8:23 PM

South Florida senior RB Darius Tice rushed for 141 yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries in Saturday's 34-28 win over Tulane.

Tice led the way with his 141 yards rushing in what was a dominant ground attack by the Bulls on Saturday. They racked up 378 yards as a team. This was the 5-foot-10, 210-pound Tice's third effort of at least 100 yards rushing. He's scored a touchdown in all seven contests this season.
Oct 21 - 11:03 PM

South Florida senior QB Quinton Flowers completed 10-of-25 passes for 127 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 138 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 34-28 win over Tulane.

Flowers was inefficient as a passer in this one, but as a runner, he was superb. The 6-foot, 217-pounder entered the season with some darkhorse Heisman buzz, but it just hasn't come together this year. He has thrown for more than two touchdown passes just once and has accounted for 19 total scores in seven games. He was responsible for 42 a year ago. Still time to boost those stats, but the air is chilling.
Oct 21 - 10:57 PM

South Florida senior RB Darius Tice rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in Saturday's 33-3 win over Cincinnati.

Tice (5'10/210) has been dealing with a bit of a leg injury of late, but has not had to miss a game. Through six contests, the senior back has rushed for 493 yards and eight touchdowns. He has already set career bests for both rushing yardage and rushing touchdowns.
Oct 14 - 11:29 PM

South Florida senior QB Quinton Flowers completed 16-of-29 passes for 184 yards while rushing for 80 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 33-3 win over Cincinnati.

This was not one of USF's shiniest offensive performances of the season, but they got the job done nonetheless. For his part, Flowers notched a one-yard rushing touchdown with 5:47 remaining in the third quarter. The 6-foot, 217-pound senior has now accounted for 16 total touchdowns this season. He accounted for 42 a year ago.
Oct 14 - 11:25 PM

South Florida senior RB D'Ernest Johnson (leg) was wearing a protective boot on Thursday.

Johnson might or might not have been dealing with this leg injury during this past weekend's win over ECU. There are no indications that this is any sort of a serious injury which might cost the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder playing time. Johnson has rushed for 432 yards (4.7 YPC) and five touchdowns in four games this season. USF is off on bye this weekend, which should allow Johnson plenty of time to heal up barring setback.
Oct 5 - 3:48 PM

South Florida senior RB Darius Tice wore a walking boot on Tuesday.

That said, Joey Knight of The Tampa Bay Times reported that Tice "was suited up and appeared to be walking fine." Fortunately for Tice, he and his Bulls teammates are on bye this week. Tice leads USF with 438 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
