The 7-3 Bearcats will return home to play the South Florida Bulls on Friday in a pivotal conference game.
The Bearcats have dropped three of their last five games after starting the year 5-0, and are now a full two games behind the Scarlet Knights atop the conference. Owners of the No. 22-ranked rushing offense in America at 213.1 yards per game, the Bearcats will hope to once again rely on the legs of senior tailback George Winn, who leads the team with 1,015 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.
Winn and company will face a South Florida defense that gave up 40 points and 548 yards of total offense to the Miami Hurricanes in Week 12. The Bulls are 1-7 over their last eight regular season games, although last Saturday's 31-point loss to Miami represented USF's largest margin of defeat this year.
When: Friday, Nov. 23
Where: Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati, OH
Game time: 7 p.m. ET
TV channel: ESPN
Spread: Cincinnati -13
