South Florida -3 vs. Florida Atlantic

Blog Picks (5-5-1)


Ladies and gentlemen, we’re about to witness the birth of a new rivalry as South Florida and Florida Atlantic go head to head, vying for the attention of potential recruits right here in the Sunshine State. It’s like a high-stakes game of chess, but with helmets and shoulder pads.

Now, let’s talk about South Florida’s rising star, freshman QB Byrum Brown. This kid’s like a fine wine, getting better with each game. In his last three outings, South Florida’s offense has been putting on a scoring clinic, putting up 42, 44, and 35 points respectively. I mean, it’s like watching a magician at work. Brown’s been dealing like a pro, completing a jaw-dropping 72 passes out of 106 attempts, racking up 1033 yards, seven touchdowns, and just a couple of hiccups in the form of interceptions.

On the other side of the field, we’ve got Florida Atlantic, who’ve been struggling to light up the scoreboard lately, managing only 61 points in their last four games. They’ve had their own drama with QB Casey Thompson, a seasoned starter at both Nebraska and Texas, but he’s out for the season with a torn ACL. Enter the backup, Daniel Richardson, a transfer from Central Michigan, who’s been having a hard time finding his groove, completing only 59% of his passes, averaging a mere 7 yards per pass, and throwing just two touchdowns while being a bit too generous with three interceptions.

Now, in this high-stakes showdown, it seems like the smart money is on the Bulls with a -2.5 spread. They’ve got the momentum, they’ve got the numbers, and they’ve got Byrum Brown, the young maestro. It’s a no-brainer.
