The South Florida Bulls offense will be led this year by sophomore quarterback B.J. Daniels. Daniels looked decent as a rookie throwing for 14 touchdowns versus just nine interceptions for a 139.55 rating. He completed just 53.7 percent of his passes for an average of 8.7 yards per attempt, so there is still a lot of room for improvement. He showed some of that potential in USF’s spring game where he threw for 381 yards on five touchdowns.

Daniels was sacked 32 times last season, but he has four seniors on the o-line and he has a lighting quick delivery that should keep him upright more than he was last season.

Dontavia Bogan will be Daniels’ primary target. The 6’1” receiver saw a decline in production last season with Daniels at quarterback, but the extra season of familiarity and the graduation of a couple of other receivers should go a long way to seeing his numbers rise as the primary threat this season.

Senior Moise Plancher is the main running threat on this offense deep in seniors. Last season he ran for 581 yards and five touchdowns. If Daniels can find some chemistry with his receivers, he could be a candidate to put up much better numbers as he finds himself with more room behind the veteran o-line.

The Bulls have excellent offensive prospects, but they still have a lot of questions on defense.

They have a lot of young, athletic players in their secondary after losing a couple of key seniors. The candidates for the open safety and cornerback positions have all looked a little raw and will need to mature and learn their positions quickly for this team to succeed.

The losses to the secondary have been made worse by the graduation of key pass rushers. Not only is the secondary vulnerable, but they will have to cover receivers for longer as the Bulls aren’t going to be getting much pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

The offense is solid, but the defense has a lot of critical holes and it will be difficult for them to find consistent success.

South Florida Bulls odds to win the Big East: +500.
