Tampa, Florida is home to the University of South Florida and what is easily one of the most exciting young college football programs in the United States. The Bulls didn’t start playing football until 1997, but they were able to move up to the FBS Divisions (Division I-A) after only four years and have been very successful against the best competition in college football. The South Florida Bulls currently play in the American Athletic Conference.
After eight years of existence and four years of playing Division I-A football, the South Florida Bulls were eligible for their first bowl game in 2005. The following year, the Bulls got their first bowl victory when they beat the East Carolina Pirates in the 2006 PapaJohns.com Bowl by a score of 24-7. The Bulls gained national recognition in 2007 when they started out the season strong and pulled off several impressive upsets against the likes of Auburn and West Virginia. Midway through the season, the Bulls climbed the rankings as high as no. 2 in the nation! They went on to suffer an untimely losing streak and drop out of the rankings, but it was an impressive ascent nonetheless that put the South Florida Bulls football program on the national map.
South Florida may have a young football program, but a student body of over 45,000 and a six-year bowl game streak from 2005-2010 has already given the Bulls a strong regional fan base. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for South Florida Bulls Bowl Game tickets.
