rockyUSF travels to Maryland in third game of 2015 season


TAMPA, FLA. — USF had its fifth kickoff time and television designation set for the 2015 campaign Friday when the Big Ten Conference announced the Bulls’ contest at Maryland on Saturday, Sept. 19 will kickoff at noon on ESPNews. USF now has kickoff times set for its first four games of the 2015 season.


The Bulls and Terps will meet in the USF’s third game of the season and second non-conference contest. The game will be played at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md. Maryland escaped Raymond James Stadium with a 24-17 victory last year after taking the lead in the fourth quarter following a touchdown return on a blocked punt. That game marked the first meeting between the programs.


USF now has kick times and television arrangements announced for five games in the 2015 season. Four of those games are slated for a national television broadcast, three on an ESPN network. USF will open the 2015 campaign, the third under Head Coach Willie Taggart, in Tampa vs. Florida A&M on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN3. The Bulls’ other announced national television appearances come at Florida State (Saturday, Sept. 12 at 11:30 a.m. on ESPN), vs. Memphis (Friday, Oct. 2 at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN2) and at Navy (Saturday, Oct. 31 at noon on CBS Sports Network)


USF returns 13 starters (5 offense, 7 defense and 1 specialist) for Taggart’s third season at the helm. The Bulls will return their top five tacklers (9 the top 12 overall) and players that accounted for 73 percent of the team’s tackles in 2014. USF returns 100 percent of its rushing yardage from 2014, including 1,000-yard rusher Marlon Mack, and 50 percent of its receptions and receiving yards.


The USF Football program completed its 18th season and 15th at the FBS level. The Bulls have made six bowl appearances, including every season between 2005-10, and have four bowl game victories. USF has produced 14 All-America selections, 23 NFL Draft picks and reached the No. 2 ranking in the Associated Press Poll in 2007.
