TAMPA, OCT. 23, 2020 – South Florida (1-5, 0-4) hosted Tulsa (2-1, 2-0) in a primetime matchup under the Friday night lights of Raymond James Stadium on ESPN, but unfortunately the Bulls lost their fifth game consecutive game 42-13 to the Golden Hurricane.
To start off the game, Quarterback Jordan McCloud led the Bulls’ offense. In his time as the gunslinger against Tulsa, McCloud only completed two of seven pass attempts for an underwhelming grand total of eight yards through the air. Through multiple stints throughout the game, Noah Johnson completed 18 of 27 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown. Johnson was not the last quarterback to make an appearance, as Jeff Scott played a never ending game of quarterback musical chairs (Russian Roulette).
The difference maker in USF’s embarrassing loss: turnovers. Johnny Ford and Noah Johnson each coughed up the rock, losing possession each time. Additionally, Johnson threw an interception Tulsa returned for a touchdown in the third quarter. Remove the costly turnovers and the Bulls could have kept themselves in the game, maybe even with a shot of taking the victory down the stretch.
