Let’s go Bulls! The USF Bulls Football Team had a big weekend. For the first time in five seasons, the team (6-6; 4-4 American) is going bowling after another superlative five-touchdown day from redshirt freshman quarterback Byrum Brown.
The Bulls clinched the crucial sixth win of the season with a decisive 48-14 victory over Charlotte (3-9; 2-6 American) on Senior Night in Raymond James Stadium. The Bulls celebrated 16 seniors prior to the game, celebrated program records during it, and celebrated the program’s 11th bowl berth, and first since 2018, after the final buzzer.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Byrum Brown threw for 253 yards and four touchdowns and added 43 yards rushing and a touchdown as he became the first Bull to pass for 3,000 yards on a season, increasing his 2023 total to 3,078 on the night, according to a release from USF Athletics.
Sean Atkins logged his seventh-straight game with seven or more receptions, making seven grabs for 61 yards and a touchdown, and threw a 62-yard touchdown to become the first Bull since 1998 to both catch and throw a touchdown in a game.
The Bulls will go bowling for the first time since 2018. Bowl destinations are officially announced on Dec. 3.
