Saturday, September 24, 2005USF-Louisville
The Game: South Florida survived a potential trap game last week (actually they dominated) and now they get a top 10 team in their house with an opportunity to get national attention. Louisville has been picked by many (including me) to run the table.
The Players: Brian Brohm is already one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the nation and running back Michael Bush is somewhere between a load and a force. South Florida has their own running back, Andre Hall, and they will use him extensively to keep Louisville's explosive offense off the field.
The Numbers: The Bulls defeated Louisville at home in 2003 and these two teams are very familiar with each other. South Florida's defense is ranked in the top 20 nationally, Louisville's offense is in the Top 10.
The Line: Opened at Louisville -20.5 and has remained stable.
The Forecast: Hall will keep the Bulls competitive, they don't have the horses to keep up with Louisville, but they won't get blown out either.
The Pick: Louisville 35, South Florida 24
