  1. USF Bulls

USF offering more discounted football tickets

USF announced Friday it is providing 500 free tickets to service members at MacDill Air Force Base for each of the Bulls' last two home games, including Saturday's "Salute to Service" contest against Houston.

Aiding the gesture were funds from season-ticket holders who diverted their refunds from the rescheduled Massachusetts game (due to Hurricane Irma).

Service members wishing to obtain tickets are asked to contact the Office of Publice Relations on the base. USF will recognize first responders and military service members Saturday.

The Bulls will wear special all-green uniforms based on a camouflage pattern of World War II-era aircraft stationed at Henderson Air Field, which previously occupied the site of the USF campus.

USF also is offering $15 tickets for all bay area government employs (city or county). Additionally, the first 400 students arriving in vehicles with four or more occupants will park for free.

Discounted tickets can be purchased at this link.

The Bulls' most recent game, its Oct. 14 homecoming rout of Cincinnati, drew an actual crowd of 38,121 -- its largest home audience for a game against a non-Power Five opponent in six years. Similar ticket discounts were offered for that contest.
