TAMPA ‘ UCF’s current stretch of football and hoops sovereignty over USF can’t be vanquished in one afternoon, but the Bulls men managed to finally put a dent in that dominance Saturday.
Before the largest Yuengling Center audience of the season (6,254), the Bulls (10-12, 3-6 American Athletic Conference) snapped a nine-game skid to the Knights, leaning on their defensive grit and an ensemble rebounding effort for a 64-48 triumph.
‘There are mile markers,” Bulls third-year coach Brian Gregory said. ‘And this is a big one for us.’
Considering UCF’s recent ownership of this rivalry, the Bulls and their beleaguered fan base were famished for Saturday’s morsel of momentum. UCF entered having won the last 15 combined meetings against USF in football (three-game streak), men’s hoops (nine games) and women’s basketball (three).
