The Cincinnati Bearcats and South Florida Bulls clash Saturday in a week 6 college football contest at Nippert Stadium. The Cincinnati Bearcats look to build on their 4-game winning streak. The South Florida Bulls look to snap a 3-game losing streak. 

The Cincinnati Bearcats haven’t lost a home game since November 2017. Ben Bryant is completing 65.2 percent of his passes for 1,383 yards, 13 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Tyler Scott and Tre Tucker have combined for 823 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Charles McClelland has 12 receptions. The Cincinnati Bearcats ground game is averaging 144 yards per contest, and Charles McClelland leads the way with 323 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Cincinnati is allowing 20.6 points and 303.2 yards per game. Ivan Pace Jr. leads the Cincinnati Bearcats with 56 tackles, Jowon Briggs has 3 sacks and Ja’von Hicks has 2 interceptions.

The South Florida Bulls haven’t won a road game since October 2019. Gerry Bohanon is completing 55.7 percent of his passes for 822 yards, 3 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Xavier Weaver and Jimmy Horn Jr. combined for 549 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Omarion Dollison has 6 receptions. The South Florida Bulls ground game is averaging 175.2 yards per contest, and Brian Battie leads the way with 391 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, South Florida is allowing 38 points and 488.6 yards per game. Dwayne Boyles leads the South Florida Bulls with 35 tackles, Jatorian Hansford has 1.5 sacks and Jayden Curry has 1 interception.

The Bulls are 8-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bearcats are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 conference games. The over is 4-1 in Bulls last 5 games overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Bearcats last 5 games overall. The Bulls are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

The Cincinnati Bearcats are the better, more talented team, and they’re one of the better home teams in the country over the last 5 years. I get the resect they’re getting here. However, the USF Bulls have been competitive this season, despite not doing anything great on either side of the ball. South Florida has athletes on both sides and just finds ways to do just enough to hang around. We saw USF nearly upset Florida a few weeks ago, and the Bulls’ offense really finds success in the second half. This line is thick. I’ll grab the free touchdowns.

Randy’s Pick USF Bulls +27.5
