Bulls_Mike_White_2013HOUSTON — University of South Florida coach Willie Taggart has been to Houston many times for recruiting. The last trip, he believes, was during his days as a Stanford University assistant, a home visit with quarterback prospect Andrew Luck.

That must seem like eons ago.

What a concept: Having a dynamic quarterback capable of producing touchdowns with a flick of his wrist.

Tonight, Taggart brings the offensively challenged USF Bulls (2-5, 2-1 American Athletic Conference) to Reliant Stadium for a matchup against the Houston Cougars (6-1, 3-0). USF hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown in 12 straight quarters and only has six, a national low, all season.

“For us, we’d love to have Andrew Luck, but we’re just looking for a little luck,’’ Taggart said. “We’d like to get there. Just a little bit. Not the whole Andrew, but just a little bit.’’
