South Florida hopes young players can break losing skid

Al Messerschmidt

The Bulls likely will expand the roles of some of their younger players during the second half of the season.

The South Florida Bulls have lost four games in a row, and head coach Skip Holtz used his team's bye week to re-evaluate his roster and find some young players who might be ready for expanded roles.

On the offensive side of the ball, tight end Sean Price and wide receiver D'Vario Montgomery are candidates for additional playing time; both players are true freshmen. Price does not have a reception this season, while Montgomery has made two catches for 36 yards.

On the defensive side, linebackers Reshard Cliett and Tashon Whitehurst could have bigger impacts, as could defensive end Clavion Nelson. Cliett has made one start this season, though he had to leave after just four plays because of a hamstring injury. He has appeared in five games this season and made three tackles. Whitehurst and Nelson each have one tackle this year.

The Bulls' game against Louisville begins at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. ABC will have the coverage.
