USF-Auburn: Don't Overlook the Bulls

Robbie MunroeCorrespondent ISeptember 9, 2007

IconThe big stories of Week Two will center around the major programs, but one that shouldn't be overlooked is that of South Florida. 

After beating Auburn on ESPN2, USF should be ranked. 

Will they be? 


In fact, I expect Auburn to get more votes in the polls than USF.

USF came out on top by sticking to their game plan and winning the turnover battle (+5). Auburn's defense swarmed to the ball all game long, but USF kept pounding it on the ground (52 attempts). The Bulls capped off the win with a touchdown pass after five straight rushes in overtime.

USF will now have two weeks to prepare for home games against the University of North Carolina and West Virginia (conference opener). Keep an eye on them as the season progresses.
