USF's Bench Must Take Care Of Ball

Bulls_Steven_Bench_2013University of South Florida sophomore QB Steven Bench, who will make his second college start Saturday night when the Bulls (0-4) face Cincinnati (3-1) at Raymond James Stadium, can best show improvement with more attention to detail and taking care of the football, USF coach Willie Taggart said Thursday.

Bench, a Penn State transfer who followed Matt Floyd and Bobby Eveld as USF?s starter this season, has thrown two interceptions and also lost a fumble in the end zone, which was recovered for a touchdown in Miami?s 49-21 victory.

?We felt like the times Steven has been in there, he has been kind of careless with the football,?? Taggart said. ?That?s Quarterback 101. A lot of it is Steven just being sure (on what to do). When he?s sure, he?s pretty, he?s right on what we need him to do.
