Cincinnati vs South Florida Free CFB Score Prediction

After a 1-3 start to the season, many people wrote off South Florida. But the Bulls have surged as the season has progressed, and they'll carry the momentum from a big upset win into the Friday Night Football Cincinnati-South Florida contest.


The CBS Sports Network will televise Friday's Cincinnati-South Florida game from Tampa at 8 p.m. Eastern.


South Florida has won five of its last six games, meaning it will carry a 6-4 record into the Cincinnati-South Florida game. It has been quite an improvement for USF, which has matched its win total from the past two seasons combined, when it went 6-18. And with winless Central Florida waiting next week, USF could finish the season on a very strong note with a win against a solid Bearcats team on Friday Night Football.


USF arguably had its best performance in a few years last Saturday, when the Bulls knocked off Top 25-ranked Temple, 44-23. That victory kept the Bulls alive in the race for the East Division title in the American Athletic Conference. Temple has a one game lead over the Bulls with two games remaining, so a win in the Cincinnati-South Florida game is a must for USF's hopes of advancing to the first-ever American Athletic Championship Game. Temple hosts Memphis Saturday before closing against Connecticut.


The Bearcats are also 6-4 entering the Cincinnati-South Florida game, but they're 3-3 in conference play, two games behind Temple in the East Division. All three of Cincinnati's losses in conference play came against the top teams in the league, as the Bearcats fell 34-26 against Temple, 33-30 at Houston, and 53-46 at Memphis. USF also has lost against Memphis this season, 24-17.


Cincinnati's magic number this season has been 30. When the Bearcats score more than 30 points, they're 6-1. When they score 30 points or less, they're 0-3. The South Florida defense hasn't allowed more than 30 points in a game since a 35-17 loss at Maryland in mid-September. Over that stretch of seven games in which USF hasn't allowed more than 30 points, the Bulls have gone 5-2.


Cincinnati and South Florida's series didn't start until 2003, but the two teams have played every year since then. The Bearcats lead the Cincinnati-South Florida all-time series, 8-4. Cincinnati has won three of its past four games in Tampa against the Bulls, but USF did win the last time these two teams played in Tampa in 2013, 26-20.
