GASPARILLA BOWL; Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL 8PM/ET ESPN
MARSHALL (8-4) vs. SOUTH FLORIDA (USF) (7-5)
An extra home game for the BULLS, but unless Marshall brings a lot of fans with them, USF won’t fill that stadium, based on their regular season attendance. USF started the season 7-0, but lost their last 5 games. Marshall comes into town with a 2-0 record for games played in Florida in 2018, having beaten both FAU and FIU in conference play. Neither team has a standout QB, which somewhat wastes the presence of some nice receiving prospects. CHARLIE STRONG has a solid reputation for recruiting well, especially in Florida, but on game days, he leaves a bit to be desired. Here’s hoping Strong is better prepared for Marshall than he and/or his team was in the month of November.
For Marshall, keep your eyes on:
#8 TYRE BRADY/WR
#37 CHASE HANCOCK/LB
#29 MALIK GANT/S (JR)
USF prospects to keep an eye on include:
#8 TYRE McCANTS/WR
#89 MITCHELL WILCOX/TE (JR) INJ
#23 MAZZI WILKINS/CB
#18 JAYMON THOMAS/FS.
