The Bulls, 9-5-1 (4-2-1), are on the road for a rare last season non-conference game. They will be facing off against ACC foe Clemson. Clemson is 8-6-1 (4-2-1) on the season and stand at 5-2 on the year at home (game begins at 7 PM).

Clemson is a very balanced and deep bench that has several players that can score for them. Leading the group is junior forward TJ Casner who has 3 goals (23 shot attempts) and has 4 assists on the season. Sophomore midfielder Thale Moreno has 3 goals (23 shot attempts as well) and has 3 assists on the season. Senior midfielder Manolo Sanchez has 2 goals (25 shot attempts) and has 5 assists. Sophomore midfielder Iman Mafi has 2 goals and 2 assists to round out their very deep offensive attack. Again Clemson has a deep bench so Spasoje Stefanovic and the back line for the Bulls will have to be on the ready for this one.

In net for Clemson is sophomore Andrew Tarbell who has allowed 9 goals and has made 27 saves on the season. Sharing minutes with him (Tarbell is the starter) is junior Chris Glodack who has allowed 6 goals on the year while making 27 saves. Tarbell is the starting goal keeper and will be a tough test for the USF offense. Tyler Blackwood and the rest of the crew will have to be ready for this game. In their last game against Memphis, the Bulls were unable to break through and score a goal late in the game despite chances. They will have to be a lot better in this one and capitalize on their shot attempts.
