TAMPA — USF junior QB Blake Barnett is not suited up for today's showdown against UCF, the second time in three games he has been sidelined by an injury.
Third-year sophomore Chris Oladokun, a Sickles High alumnus, is expected to make his second career start today at Raymond James Stadium. Kickoff is at 4:15 p.m.
Barnett, third in the American Athletic Conference in total offense (280.6 ypg), injured his ankle in the second quarter of last week's 27-17 loss at Temple, but completed the game. He also re-aggravated a shoulder injury that kept him sidelined for the Bulls' loss at Cincinnati two weeks ago.
Oladokun started against the Bearcats, finishing 10-for-22 for 165 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He enters today's game 12-for-27 (44.4 percent) for 190 yards.
DB Bentlee Sanders and DT Kevin Bronson also aren't suited up today for the Bulls.
