Here are my five keys for this Thanksgiving battle. This is a very important game for the Bulls on many levels.
It’s Thanksgiving – It’s Thanksgiving, making it very interesting for the Bulls and the Knights alike. How big will the home crowd be for their senior night? Will the teams be in the game or will they be looking forward to the Thanksgiving dinner after the game? This could be a game that starts slow for both sides as they play on a week night during a major holiday. The national eyes of ESPN will be on them, so it will be interesting to see how much energy either side has in this game.
C. Florida has nothing to lose – let’s be honest for a second, this game should scare fans just a bit. It’s a Thursday night game, on the road against a rival that has nothing to lose on their senior night. Here comes USF, winning big, ready for a bowl game, and likely favored in this game. It is the perfect recipe for a disaster if the Bulls are not focused and prepared for this game. I always worry about a game like this and for good reason.
Again, just win this damn game
