College football scouting report: USF Bulls vs. No. 19 Miami Hurricanes

It's the final home game for 16 USF seniors, including five who have started all 10 games this season: RB Mo Plancher, DE George Selvie, LB Kion Wilson, S Nate Allen and CB Jerome Murphy. Selvie has the honor of wearing the No. 10 jersey as a nod to former Bulls RB Keeley Dorsey, who died during a conditioning workout in 2007 and would have been a senior on this team. Today is also a chance for fans to say goodbye and thanks to QB Matt Grothe, who was lost for the season with a knee injury in September. USF's chances of upsetting Miami (8-3) start with QB B.J. Daniels, who came up with several big plays in the Bulls' win at Florida State on Sept. 26. Can the Bulls (7-3) beat a ranked team for the third time this season? It's just the third home sellout in USF history and should challenge the West Virginia game in 2007 for the largest crowd for a home game.

What to watch for …

USF's defense could generate a lot of turnovers against Miami Jacory Harris, whose 17 interceptions are the most of any QB in the current top 100 in the NCAA passer rating standings.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.
