J. HARRIS vs. J. MURPHY
The USF secondary has been giving up big passing plays this season. Miami quarterback Jacory Harris needs about 360 more passing yards to jump former quarterback Ken Dorsey for the second most passing yards during a single season in program history.

Miami senior tackle Jason Fox, listed at 6-foot-7 and 314 pounds, is a candidate for the Outland Trophy.
D. VAN DYKE vs. C. MITCHELL
USF offensive coordinator Mike Canales was optimistic Tuesday about junior Carlton Mitchell’s chances of playing against Miami. If Mitchell, who’s been sidelined with a high ankle sprain for three weeks, plays, he’ll most likely be matched up with Miami junior cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke, who has two years of starting experience. Despite Mitchell’s absence, he’s still USF’s leading receiver with 542 yards.

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 […]
