Football Opens Conference Play On The Road At USF
The University of Cincinnati football team comes out of its first bye week of 2013 with the American Athletic Conference opener at USF on the horizon for Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013 inside Raymond James Stadium.

SCOUTING USF
Marcus Shaw has totaled 525 yards on the ground, an average of 131.2 yards per game, 6.8 yards per carry and 2 TDs. Andre Davis leads the receivers with 14 catches for 191 yards and a TD. Steven Bench earned the starting QB role going into last week’s game against Miami (Fla.). He has thrown for 317 yards and 2 TDs. DeDe Lattimore leads the defense with 32 tackles and an interception.

THE SERIES
Saturday marks the 11th time the two schools will meet with UC holding a 7-3 advantage, including a 3-2 margin in games played in Tampa. The Bearcats have won the last two matchups.

THE COACHES
Tommy Tuberville, a 17-year head coaching veteran was named the 41st football head coach at the University of Cincinnati on Dec. 8, 2012. Widely regarded as one of the top coaches and recruiters in the collegiate game, comes to Cincinnati after three years at Texas Tech. Tuberville holds a 133-78 career record with head coaching stops at Texas Tech, Auburn and Ole Miss.

WILLIE TAGGART is 0-4 in his first season at the helm of the USF program. The Tampa Bay area native was born in Bradenton, Fla. and is the second-youngest head coach in the NCAA FBS at the age of 37. He played and later coached at Western Kentucky where he was recruited by Jim Harbaugh and coached by Jack Harbaugh. John Harbaugh was a UC assistant from 1989-96.
