South Florida Bulls Team Facts

  • South Florida has lost each of its last 10 matches at Raymond James Stadium when playing with a rest advantage.
  • The underdog has covered the spread in each of South Florida's last six games at Raymond James Stadium.
  • South Florida has lost the first half in three of its last four games against conference opponents at Raymond James Stadium.
  • Each of South Florida's last four November games as a home favorite against non-AP-ranked teams have gone UNDER the total points line.

Charlotte 49ers Team Facts

  • Charlotte has lost eight of its last 10 games.
  • Charlotte has covered the spread in seven of its last eight road games.
  • Four of Charlotte's last five road games in November have gone OVER the total points line.


South Florida comes into this matchup needing one win to become bowl eligible, and they should be able to pick it up against a bad Charlotte team. The Bulls have played pretty well this season and have a very good passing attack, but their defense has let them down. Charlotte only has three wins on the year, but their offense is only scoring 17.8 points per game. The 49ers won’t be able to expose this South Florida defense, so I like the Bulls in this matchup.
