This is a Bulls defense that is completely rebuilt from last year which gives me pause when I'm being asked to lay a big number. I need too see the chances and have confidence in them before I can't put my money behind a 20-pt favorite.
During their past 25 games, the Bulls have allowed 17 running backs to gain at least 100 yards.
USF -- which went 4-8 last year and fired coach Charlie Strong at season's end -- may be vulnerable to The Citadel's triple option. That means containing preseason All-American quarterback Brandon Rainey, who accounted for a school-record 30 touchdowns last season and rushed for 900 yards and 17 touchdowns.
