The Bulls will play six non-conference games and 20 games in American Athletic Conference play as a part of the league’s new double round-robin format.

To kick off non-conference play, USF will face a crosstown rival of sorts in NAIA Florida College, in a matinee game on Wednesday at 11:30. USF last played the Falcons in the 2018-19 season as a makeup game for Charlotte.

‘We felt it was important to open the season with a home game before going on the road for a week to play in Connecticut,’ Gregory said in a release. ‘We had a number of different teams show interest in coming to Tampa for our season opener, but different situations and scenarios developed that made those potential match-ups unworkable.’
