The Tigers Roar In Tampa Bay, Beat USF 23-10

The Memphis Tigers invaded Tampa Bay on Saturday evening and came out on top against South Florida, winning 23-9.

TAMPA BAY, FL--- The era of Mike White stalled on Saturday night in the freshman's second career start under center for the Bulls. After showing promise and hope against Houston two weeks prior, finishing the game with 311 yards on 26-of-41 passing with a touchdown and an interception, White never found his groove against the Tigers' defense on Saturday.

The 6-foot-4 Ft. Lauderdale native tossed four interceptions on the night, and finished with just 187 yards through the air against the Memphis Tigers. Coach Taggart remains confident in his freshman signal caller.

"He's (Mike White) our quarterback," Taggart said after the game.

Senior wide receiver Andre Davis caught his 100th career pass in the loss, and continued his stellar play with seven catches for 110 yards and a touchdown. The Bulls outgained the Tigers 325-242 in overall yards on Saturday night, but still came up short.

Coach Willie Taggart's program edged out Memphis with 30 minutes time-of-possession, but also had five total turnovers to Memphis' one, which was the dagger in the heart for Willie Taggart's squad.

Near perfect on the season, kicker Marvin Kloss struggled against the Memphis Tigers, finishing 1-3 on the night. The Bulls were penalized nine times on the night as well, which is actually an improvement from last time out again Houston, which the Bulls contributed to 19 penalties.

For Memphis, the win tonight against South Florida is their first conference win of the season and now sit at 3-6 (1-4) on the season.

The Bulls host SMU next Saturday at 7:00 p.m. inside Raymond James Stadium and the game will be broadcasted on ESPN3.
