USF’s Dane Brenner was chosen as the Big East Goalkeeper of the Week, and West Virginia’s Nick Noble was granted the same award for the week ending Sept. 4. Brenner was also named to the Soccer America Team of the Week.
The Bulls also face Big East foe Pittsburgh on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the USF Soccer Stadium. The Panthers have just one win this season, and USF beat Pittsburgh last season, 1-0, in their first-ever meeting.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
