The BYU Cougars are set to visit Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida for a Week 7 clash against the South Florida Bulls. The BYU Cougars come into this matchup with a 2-3 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Toledo Rockets, 28-21. QB Zach Wilson struggled to find much consistency through the air for the Cougars as he connected on 22 of his 38 pass attempts for 315 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 interception. Senior WR Aleva Hifo was the top target for Wilson and the Cougars as he hauled in 5 catches for 111 yards and 2 TDs.
The BYU Cougars struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Toledo Rockets as they allowed them to score 28 points and rack up a total of 448 yards of offense. Junior LB Kavika Fonua led the way for the BYU defense as he contributed 10 tackles. Junior DL Uriah Leiataua was able to get into the Toledo backfield a handful of times as he contributed 2 TFL and 1 sack. Freshman LB Payton Wilgar was able to contribute the lone interception of the game for the BYU defense.
The South Florida Bulls come into this matchup with a 2-3 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the UConn Huskies, 48-22. QB Jordan McCloud struggled to find much consistency through the air for South Florida as he connected on 11 of his 21 pass attempts for 157 yards, 3 TDs, and 2 interceptions. RB Jordan Cromkrite was solid on the ground for the Bulls as he contributed 148 yards on 20 carries.
The South Florida Bulls struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the UConn Huskies as they let one of the worst offenses in college football score 22 points and rack up 293 yards of offense. Sophomore LB Dwayne Boyles was able to get into the UConn backfield a handful of times as he contributed 8 tackles, 3 TFL, and 1 sack. Junior DB Mike Hampton had a productive game from the secondary as he pitched in 8 tackles and 3 pass deflections.
The South Florida Bulls have had a rough start to the season as their only wins have come against an FCS foe and the worst team in college football in UConn. The BYU Cougars should cause problems for the South Florida defense as they have an explosive QB in Zach Wilson as he has shown the ability to pick up TDs on the ground and through the air. The South Florida Bulls showed a pulse on the offensive side of the ball against the UConn Huskies, but their young QB Jordan McCloud made some mistakes as he threw 2 interceptions. The Cougars were able to rattle the USC Trojans young QB in a win, and I expect them to throw some different looks at McCloud here. The Cougars are coming off a bye week and should be well prepared for this game.
