Louisville QB reminds Bulls of Miami's Harris



Here are Tuesday night's practice notes from Times correspondent Ian Lanphier. ...


TAMPA -- When USF's defense lines up against Louisville freshman QB Teddy Bridgewater on Friday, it won't have to jog its memory when facing a player with his skill set, defensive coordinator Mark Snyder said.
Snyder said Bridgewater's game is comparable to the most recent signal-caller the Bulls faced, Miami QB Jacory Harris.
"You look at (Bridgewater) athletically, he's just like the guy we just played," he said. "I mean, they're from the same high school. You watch the film you think you're watching Jacory Harris play. He's starting to take care of the football."
Bridgewater, who has nine TDs and nine interceptions for 1,614 yards and three rushing TDs this season, is elusive in the pocket much like Harris and is doing a better job of using all of his receivers, Snyder said. The Bulls had success against Rutgers freshman Gary Nova earlier this month, holding him to 11-of-24 passing for 110 yards before backup Chas Dodd led the Scarlet Knights to victory.
STILL OUT: Junior QB B.J. Daniels remained out of practice Tuesday as he recovers from an AC joint sprain. Coach Skip Holtz said he will monitor how Daniels "responds to some of the treatment" as the week progresses. Starting CBs Kayvon Webster and Quenton Washington didn't practice, but are expected to play Friday.
