South Florida is coming back after a long trip out West where they played at high altitude and now they are on a short week. Rutgers meanwhile has barely shown a pulse on offense this season and they haven't been exactly playing juggernauts. South Florida's offense has looked good thus far, but they are about to get a wake up call on a short week playing Rutgers that returns 9 starters and can be dominant against the run. BJ Daniels has struggled against Rutgers in his career over 3 starts completing 31-68 passes while throwing 3 TD's and 3 INT's. Rutgers was dominant a year ago against the run and they have a veteran unit returning. Their secondary only allowed just 8 passing TD's and they have the secondary to match up with WR Andre Davis.
I just think this is major let down spot for South Florida and the offense after playing so well at Nevada pulling the come back win and Rutgers is so disciplined on third downs last year allowing just 32.14 % conversions while South Florida's offense was among the worst in converting ranked 8th 37% that this game will tend to be a low scoring game. Rutgers should be shut down on offense, but they will be good enough to move the ball a bit with the talent they have at tackle. Don't sleep on their ability to block punts and their punt coverage when they punt is one of the best giving them a major advantage in that department. When it comes down to it I think this will be a low scoring game with South Florida probably winning, but it won't be easy.
