Due to the shortage of funds (and bad history of mailing out prizes), all potential prizes are suspended until further notice. But please, participate nonetheless and have fun.
The Contest: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to select the winner for the week's USF football game - as well as make some tie-breaking prognostications. Prizes await, as does the respect and admiration of Bulls fans worldwide.

And now, the contest:
For the Bulls game against Michigan State on September 7, please select the following:
1) The winning team
2) The final score
3) Bulls leading rusher
4) Bulls leading receiver
5) Bulls total offensive yards (closest without going over)
Please try to keep in the above format so that it will be easier to manage. Sample response would be:
1) South Florida
3) Marcus Shaw
4) Chris Dunkley
After posting your entry, please feel free make your case for your picks, or predict other aspects of the game. It will make the thread much more entertaining if everyone gives their reasons for their picks, and make predictions on other aspects like special teams, rushing, or which QB will get the most PT.
The winner will be decided with the first and second prediction items. I am looking for the person that comes closest to the actual score, not simply the margin of victory. If more than one person is correct, or equally close, we'll go to item three. Closest wins. If still tied, we go to item four - if still tied, item 5. After that, whoever gives the best reasoning, and pre-game analysis wins.*
Prize for this game:
*As with previous years' contests, Bulliever is the final judge on all entries. He will select the winner based on secret, pre-established criteria. All decisions are final.
