South Florida Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:

The Bulls can get their offense going. They surprised Alabama a few weeks ago, jumping ahead at the end of the first half with a score of 17-7 but falling behind in the second half 40-17.

Weaknesses:

South Florida needs to be able to put points on the board in the second half. They have scored only 13 points in the last two quarters this season.
