USF spring football game preview


USF spring game

When/where: 5 p.m.; Raymond James Stadium

Radio: 98.7-FM

Admission: Free

Of note: First-year coach Willie Taggart devised an elaborate draft to split the players into teams. Defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan's Green team faces defensive backs coach Ron Cooper's White squad. … It is the first chance to see heralded DE Aaron Lynch, a transfer from Notre Dame. … Bobby Eveld can solidify his position as No. 1 quarterback entering the fall, and RBs Marcus Shaw and Mike Pierre will make their cases for big roles. … Can the secondary come up with interceptions as a sign of a more encouraging season ahead? … The winning team gets a steak dinner. The losers get hot dogs. … Players and coaches will sign autographs after the game.
