USF Limits Running Game In Season Opener

South Florida didn't really run into much trouble against FCS opponent Chattanooga in Saturday's season opener, defeating them 34-13. But fans could still tell they weren't seeing their team play at full potential, even for a season opener.

Maybe USF was bored, or maybe it's what Voodoo Five picked up from Todd Fitch's post-game comments.

From Voodoo Five's Jame DeVriend:

Fitch said they limited the running game "to see where they were," and it was noticeable. B.J. Daniels did very little running, and there weren't a whole lot of wrinkles, just a lot of Demetris Murray and Marcus Shaw between the tackles. That's probably why the Bulls only ran for a total of 85 yards.

USF had to deal with Chattanooga's relentless blitz all night, so it makes sense for the Bulls to hold back a bit if they can still win comfortably.
