Skip Holtz takes blame in USF losing streak

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

South Florida has lost four games in a row.

The South Florida Bulls lost to the Temple Owls on Saturday, which extended their losing streak to four games. After it was over, head coach Skip Holtz accepted the blame for USF's slow start. "I'm certainly not trying to pass any blame or trying to wash away that responsibility," Holtz said. "That falls on us. That falls on me as the head football coach."

The Bulls were expected by many to compete for a Big East title in 2012, but instead they have stumbled to an 0-2 start to conference play, with losses to Temple and Rutgers. South Florida also has non-conference losses to Ball State and Florida State. Among their problems is a turnover margin that ranks 117th in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

USF resumes its conference schedule with a road game against a ranked Louisville Cardinals team on Oct. 20.
