The USF Football team will have their last home game of the regular season on Thursday night when they play host to the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes on ESPN at 7:30 p.m.
The #20/23 Bulls (8-1, 5-1 American Athletic Conference) will honor 23 seniors led by quarterback Quinton Flowers before the game. Flowers is closing in on former quarterback Matt Grothe's school record of 10,875 yards throughout his career. 14 of the seniors being honored are starters for the Bulls and have contributed immensely to the success of the program.
Flowers is one of the most dynamic players in all of college football and Thursday is the last time you'll be able to see him at Raymond James Stadium. He was also invited to the East-West Shrine Game, where the top seniors in college football showcase their talents in front of NFL scouts, following the conclusion of the season which is held at Tropicana Field.
Senior wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has had back-to-back 100-yard receiving games and sits just 102 yards away from breaking the all-time single-season yards record of 822 yards held by current Minnesota Viking Rodney Adams. The two were on the same team at Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg.
The senior class has led the Bulls to 31 wins and counting over the last four years as well as three bowl games. Prior to the 2015 Miami Beach Bowl, the Bulls hadn't been to a postseason game since 2010.
The Bulls offense averages over 500 yards a game and scores 39 points per game, while the much-improved defense is allowing just 319 yards and 19 points per game.
With a win over Tulsa, it will set up a Black Friday showdown with rival UCF to determine who will represent the AAC East division in the conference title game that game will air on ABC at 3:30 p.m.
