South Florida-Cincinnati Preview

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — With South Florida off to another slow start in Big East play, Skip Holtz concedes there’s a sense of urgency to pull out of a mid-season tailspin against Cincinnati.

But what the coach stops short of calling Saturday’s crucial conference matchup against the surging Bearcats (5-1, 1-0) is a must-win situation for the sputtering Bulls (4-2, 0-2), who are looking to rebound from beginning their league schedule with a pair of losses on the road.

Cincinnati has won four straight, including last week’s league opener over Louisville at home. USF is coming off road losses to Pittsburgh and Connecticut that followed a 4-0 start that propelled Holtz’s team to a No. 16 ranking.
