College football scouting report: USF Bulls at Cincinnati Bearcats, 8:05 p.m. Friday, ESPN2, 970-AM

Nippert Stadium has not been kind to the Bulls (3-3, 0-2 Big East), who have lost three games there by an average of 17.7 points. USF has never lost at a road stadium four times, but that's what the Bulls will have if they can't get their offense going. The Bulls offense hasn't found the end zone since the Florida Atlantic game, and the unit generated just 422 yards in losses to Syracuse and West Virginia. Cincinnati's defense is among the worst in the nation in interceptions and sacks, which should help give QB B.J. Daniels confidence despite poor play — nine interceptions and one touchdown in USF's three losses.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR …

Cincinnati (3-3, 1-0) has three offensive players already over 500 yards — RB Isaiah Pead is averaging 8.8 yards per carry, and WRs Armon Binns (525 yards, 7 TDs) and D.J. Woods (550 yards, 6 TDs) are two of the leading receivers in the Big East. USF's secondary, especially CBs Mistral Raymond, Quenton Washington and Kayvon Webster, will be tested downfield more than in any game this season so far.
