Spring (FOOTBALL) is Here!
Yes, it’s spring, and yes we mean football. It’s crazy I know. But it is springtime Bulls football practice. The fifth annual Spring Football Game will be on Saturday, April 13th. This at-capacity event is a great way to spend a beautiful Spring day. It is held at the Corbett Stadium on the USF campus and is free to the public. Bring your chairs, blankets, and sunscreen and set up camp on the grass berms surrounding the playing surface.
It is free to the public and will cap off a day of entertainment on campus that begins with a street festival starting at 11 a.m. outside the stadium. Normal pregame tailgating activities will be allowed in campus lots. Fans are also encouraged to bring blankets and utilize seating areas on the grass berms surrounding the playing surface as a large crowd is expected.
Fans will get their first look at a 2019 Bulls team that returns 16 starters (9 offense, 5 defense, 2 specialists) from a 2018 squad that reached the program’s fourth straight bowl game. USF’s third season under head coach Charlie Strong will feature a new offensive coordinator in Kerwin Bell, who led Valdosta State to an NCAA Division II national championship with the nation’s top scoring offense (52.0 ppg) last year.
USF season football tickets are on sale now for renewals but if you are looking to buy season tickets for the first time, they are taking deposits. You can also purchase new season tickets at the Spring game. With USF coming off of 21 wins in the last two seasons, and a program record run of 20 straight appearances in the top 25 polls, crowds will be anxious to see what Coach Charlie Strong has in store for us for 2018.
The Bulls will take the field for the first of 15 spring practices on March 19 and will practice for four weeks leading up to the spring game.
