College football scouting report: No. 20 USF Bulls vs. Florida A&M Rattlers, 7 p.m. Saturday, BHSN, 970-AM

FAMU (1-1) came to Tampa in 2005 and lost 37-3. It was held to 85 yards of total offense and four first downs as USF piled up 490 yards. That day's crowd was, at the time, the Bulls' second largest at Raymond James Stadium, and tonight's game should top the 43,122 announced that day. The Rattlers have just 13 rushing yards in two games, but the Bulls (2-0) still will come out trying to stop the run and adjust from there.

USF will try more downfield passing. Despite averaging 250 passing yards, the Bulls haven't connected on a pass play longer than 24 yards. QB B.J. Daniels will try to continue to limit his mistakes against a Rattlers defense that has blitzed on about 70 percent of its snaps. USF coach Skip Holtz, far left, said he wants to play his No. 2 units during the first half and likely most of the second half.
