The South Florida Bulls have not exactly been impressive this season. Despite aiming to compete for a title, they seem to be far from reaching that goal. Against East Carolina, things are not expected to get easier. They face a team who continue to improve and rank among the best teams in the conference. The Bulls can’t seem to figure out the right quarterback to use, experimenting on a couple of guys. Jordan McCloud is standing out, throwing 674 yards, eight touchdowns and six interceptions for the season. However, his decision-making needs to improve to avoid turnovers.
