College football preview capsule: USF Bulls vs. Louisville Cardinals, 11 a.m. Friday, ESPN2, 620-AM

WATCH OUT FOR...

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater is the second true freshman to face USF this month, after Rutgers' Gary Nova. He reminds the Bulls of UM's Jacory Harris, who beat them last week. No Louisville skill-position player has 500 yards of offense. Senior WR Josh Bellamy, a Boca Ciega graduate, has one TD reception.

USF (5-5, 1-4 in Big East) needs one win to be bowl-eligible for the seventh year in a row. Louisville (6-5, 4-2) is trying to win the conference title. The Cardinals are 0-4 in Tampa. USF leads 5-3 in the overall series, including an overtime win in Louisville last season. The Bulls' big question is whether QB B.J. Daniels, left, can play despite a shoulder injury that kept him out of the end of Saturday's loss to Miami. If he can't, USF will turn to sophomore Bobby Eveld, who lost to Connecticut last year in his only previous start. The Bulls mustered only three points in the Miami loss. They will lean heavily on RBs Darrell Scott and Demetris Murray to ease the burden on whichever quarterback gets the nod.
