B.J. Daniels and USF will look to avoid their second consecutive loss as they travel to Muncie, Ind. to take on Ball State.
The South Florida Bulls will head north to Muncie, Ind. this weekend to play the Ball State Cardinals on their home turf. Both teams enter the game with identical 2-1 records, but Ball State is coming off a big road win over the Indiana Hoosiers, 41-39, while USF is coming off a disappointing home loss to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 23-13.
These two teams do have some recent history. They met last season and USF picked up an easy victory in their home opener, 37-7. But after last weekend's disappointment, the Bulls will most certainly be looking to avoid becoming the second consecutive BCS opponent the Cardinals knock off this season.
Offensively, USF is led by senior quarterback B.J. Daniels. In three games this season, Daniels has already passed for 830 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. The quarterback has contributed in the running game as well, carrying the ball 32 times and racking up 124 yards and a touchdown.
