2014 South Florida Bulls Football Schedule
Football is a big deal in Florida and perhaps nowhere is this more true
than in Tampa Bay, which is not only home to the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but also the University of South Florida Bulls
football team. The Bulls are one of the newer football programs in the NCAA and struggled through a difficult 2013 season,
though they also showed some promise and have fans eagerly anticipating the growth and rise of this program. Playing their
home games at Raymond James Stadium, home of the Bucs, the Bulls even have the perfect backdrop for all of their biggest matchups
of the season, providing plenty of incentive to head out and see if the Bulls have what it takes to rise up the standings
in the American conference.
The home schedule kicks off for the South Florida Bulls on Aug. 30 when the Western Carolina
Catamounts come to town to take on the Bulls, with a Sept. 6 matchup the following week against Maryland also likely to create
plenty of fanfare leading up to the opening kickoff. Other prominent matchups include South Florida-NC State (Sept. 13), East
Carolina (Oct. 11) and Houston (Nov. 1), though that's only scratching the surface. Away matchups against Wisconsin, Tulsa
and Memphis will also provide some major competition as the Bulls look to grow their reputation, and seeing your team on the
road can be every bit as exciting. Either way, if you're a Bulls' fan the only place to be this season is in the stands, where
the camaraderie will get taken to a level you simply can't duplicate anywhere else.
