USF Vs. Miami 2011: Bulls Host Hurricanes In Non-Conference Showdown

In a matchup of in-state rivals, USF (5-4, 1-4 Big East) hosts Miami (5-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) this Saturday.

This Saturday, Nov. 19, the South Florida Bulls (5-4, 1-4 Big East) begin a three-game homestand to end their season, hosting the Miami Hurricanes (5-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) in a rare late-season, non-conference battle.

Last Thursday, the Bulls ended their four-game losing streak in emphatic fashion, sending the Syracuse Orange to a 37-17 defeat. South Florida outgained Syracuse, 236 yards to 108, on the ground and scored all four of its touchdowns rushing. Demetris Murray scored two touchdowns on his 17 carries, while quarterback B.J. Daniels led USF in rushes (21) and yards (117) while adding a touchdown of his own.

Miami is coming off a 23-19 loss the Florida State Seminoles, rivals from the ACC. The Hurricanes ran 18 more plays than the Noles and held a 383-259 edge in net yards, but their three turnovers did them in.

USF is 1-2 all-time against Miami, but won the most recent meeting between the teams, 23-20, in overtime. Murray scored the winning touchdown with a one-yard run.
