Florida State 34, South Florida 14

Willie Taggart’s believing Bulls took a 7-7 tie into halftime and hung tough with No. 11/8 Florida State in a 34-14 loss before a crowd of 72,811 at Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday.

Head coach Willie Taggert on his USF team:

“I’m really proud of our guys considering everything they’ve been through this week”

“To play with so much emotion and so much energy, I’m very proud of them.”

FSU (2-0) was powered by Dalvin Cook’s 266 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries. The All-American candidate produced the second-most rushing yards in a game ever at FSU and became the fifth Seminole to pass the 200-yard mark.

Taggert on Cook:

“When you’re playing against a guy like Cook, you’ve got to get the whole team to wrap him up. We didn’t do a good job of wrapping him up and allowed him to get too many yards.”

Taggert on Florida State:

fsu“That’s a really good football team over there… We had a lot of opportunities in that game, where we could have made a statement, and we didn’t. When you’re playing a good team, you have to.”

The Bulls get a Big Ten test on the road next Saturday at Maryland. Kickoff is set for noon in College Park, Md.  Following a bye week, USF returns home to Raymond James Stadium to take on defending conference co-champion Memphis on Friday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. Reserve your seats at USFBullsTix.com.
