Well week 5 is in the books for the USF Bulls (we’re ranked #20 in the media poll). And we travelled to NC State (who just got crushed by Ja514). We took advantage early and were up 21-0 at the half. Second half was a little tougher, we both scored 3 tds. So it ended up being 42-21, not as good as Ja514 but thats ok. The offense showed up this week only punting on the first possession and then scoring on the 7 we got after that. The defense started out good but faded late, still a work in progress. Overall pretty happy with a road win against a BCS opponent.
Matt Grothe, QB: 16-18 for 328 yards with 5 tds and no ints. Good game today, ran the option well, 5 tds to 4 different receivers and no turnovers!!
Mike Ford, RB: 6 rushes 36 yards and a td. Did most of his damage cathing the ball, 4 catches for 144 yards and 2 tds. Great game for him overall, still need to work on the running game.
Carlton Mitchell, WR: 4 catches for 104 yards and a td. Did good in the return game too, 3 kick returns for 79 yards and 2 punt returns for 23 yards. 200 yard day, not too bad and only a sophomore.
Overall pretty happy with the team. We are young, QB is a junior, starting RB is a sophomore and my top 2 receivers this game are sophomores, we can be better next year.
