Stefan LeFors' stat line against Miami was impressive, 17 of 22 for 242 yards and 3 TDs. He just about duplicated it against South Florida by having another impressive outing- 21 of 26 for 240 yards and 2 scores (one on the ground and one throwing). He started out again like gangbusters connecting on his first 13 passes. J.R. Russell continues to pick up where he left off last season by catching 8 passes for 111 yards. Adam McCauley had a career day when he caught 4 passes, including one for a score. Back-up QB Brian Brohm hit Montrell Jones with the longest pass of his career so far in the 4th quarter on a nifty play action pass. The three headed running beast known as Shelton, Bush and Gates kept the Bulls on their horns all game long with their TDs.
"The Hammer" grabbed his first INT in the first half to help set up another scoring drive when he scooped a bobbled ball off a USF receiver's hands. Brandon Johnson played with intense emotion as he made plays behind and at the line of scrimmage all night. The secondary has to improve its pass coverage before they take on the Jekell and Hyde Tigers of Memphis. The Cards were flagged several times for holding during pass plays, something that could come back and haunt U of L as they match up with Danny Wimprine and Co. However, the defense kept the Bulls pinned by only allowing 9 points and a little over 200 yards.
This unit was solid against USF. Art Carmody nailed two field goals with ease and the punt and kick-off coverage kept the Bulls at bay the entire game.
