USF junior tailback Marlon Mack finds himself on the cusp of at least two more Bulls offensive records entering Saturday's game at Memphis.

Seemingly every Bulls football game this season has been accompanied by a degree of revision to the school record books. Saturday's game at Memphis will be no exception.

In fact, some serious editing could ensue.

If the Gulf Coast Offense is performing at its normal potency, the historic moments could outnumber commercial breaks Saturday night at the Liberty Bowl. Here's a breakdown of the history the Bulls are on the cusp of overtaking:

* QB Quinton Flowers needs 79 rushing and 59 passing yards to become the first 1,000/2,000 single-season performer in program history. If his recent efforts are any barometer, he may reach that standard by halftime.

* TB Marlon Mack, with 3,206 rushing yards, needs 126 to move into the top 10 on Florida's all-time collegiate chart. Mack sits in 13th place with FSU's Travis Minor (3,218), Florida's Neal Anderson (3,234) and Miami's Ottis Anderson (3,331) directly in front of him.

* Mack is two rushing TDs shy of Andre Hall's single-season mark (13), and needs 276 all-purpose yards to eclipse DeAndrew Rubin's 14-year-old USF career record (3,898)

* USF needs one touchdown against the Tigers to equal the program season record for total TDs (54) set in 2015.

* Junior D'Ernest Johnson needs only 12 receiving yards to break Rafael Williams' school career mark for receiving yards by a running back (659).

* Senior WR Rodney Adams, with 15 career receiving TDs, enters the Memphis game only two shy of Andre Davis' all-time record.
