USF Vs. Pitt: Bulls Down 20-17 To Pittsburgh At Halftime

Ray Graham and Tino Sunseri are each having strong games as the Pittsburgh Panthers lead the #14/16 South Florida Bulls 20-17 at Heinz Field.

Graham has been a terror against the Bulls defense, rushing for 102 yards and a score while also catching 3 balls out of the backfield for 28 yards in the first half. Even more impressive than Graham is Sunseri, who is having his best game of the year. The junior QB has been efficient through the air, going 14-23 for 118 yards, while also running for 47 yards and a touchdown. Sunseri's ability to scramble saved a couple of Pitt drives while giving Graham extra space as USF now has to account for his ability to run.

On the other side of the ball, the Bulls offense once again looks great. B.J. Daniels has 106 yards through the air while also rushing for a team-high 39 yards and a touchdown. Darrell Scott and Demetris Murray have been a solid 1-2 punch, each rushing for 36 yards and Murray scoring his 2nd touchdown of the year.

The Bulls obviously need to find a way to stop Graham in the 2nd half, and force Pitt into 3rd and long situations. If the Bulls can get a couple of stops on defense, the offense can get back on the field and continue to pressure the Pitt defense.
