South Florida has started off this season strong with three victories. They’ve defeated San Jose State, Stony Brook, and Illinois with each win coming by at least two touchdowns. They were supposed to play Connecticut in Week 3, but the game was postponed, so the Bulls got extra rest for the game against Illinois. Quinton Flowers has been the catalyst for the South Florida offense at the quarterback position. Through three games. he has passed for 678 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions on 55.6 percent passing. Flowers has thrown two or more touchdowns in 10 of his last 11 games. Not only is the team passing effectively, their ground game has exceeded their wildest expectations. They are rushing for 281.3 yards per game. Darius Tice has been a great runner with 256 yards and four touchdowns in three games. Defensively, South Florida has been fairly solid, as well. They are giving up an average of 20.7 points and 323.3 yards per game. With their stellar offense, this has been enough so far this season. All of this combined with home field advantage should be enough to lift South Florida over a decent Temple squad.

Temple started off the season with a rough loss at Notre Dame, but have come back with two close victories. They beat in-town rival Villanova in a defensive showdown 16-13 and defeated UMass at home by a score of 29-21. Temple came into this season with high expectations having won the American Athletic Conference title last season and they haven’t quite lived up to them yet. They should have blown out both Villanova and UMass. Their offense hasn’t been much of a problem this season. Quarterback Logan Marchi has played fantastic in the early going. On 57.5 percent passing, he has thrown for 767 yards, five touchdowns, and not a single interception. They have only turned the ball over once all season, while they’ve created three takeaways. Temple’s ground game has taken some of the pressure off of Marchi. While the team is only rushing for 94.3 yards per game, they’ve been great in short yardage scenarios. Defensively is where Temple gets a little shaky. They’ve allowed 27.7 points and 488.7 yards per game. If they remain this mediocre on defense, South Florida will surely take advantage and leave them in the dust.
According to Sportsbook Review, South Florida is favored to win their fourth game by 18 points. The game’s over/under is 60 1/2 points.
