TAMPA — The defense was ahead of the offense in USF's first scrimmage of the spring.
The highlight Saturday was an 88-yard score. Chris Robinson forced a fumble, and Brouce Mompremier picked it up and ran about 30 yards then lateraled to Carlton Williams for the score.
"Five turnovers is a good thing if you play defense, but it's bad for the offense," coach Jim Leavitt told gousfbulls.com. "I haven't watched film, so I can't say much about the running game. I thought the passing game was fair."
