Bulls’ seniors poised to set records
TAMPA — Roughly 20 minutes prior to Thursday evening’s Tulsa-USF game, almost certainly the Bulls’ 2017 home finale, 23 senior players will be recognized. By night’s end, a few of them could be immortalized. A handful of seniors are on the cusp of breaking USF offensive and defensive career records. Among them is fifth-year senior MLB who enters the contest only four tackles shy of breaking
15-year-old school career mark (367). Sanchez appeared poised to break it two Saturdays ago at UConn, but finished with only three tackles.
“It’ll be nice if I can do it at home,” Sanchez said. “I would’ve loved to have done it [at UConn] to add on to it this week. But to do it at home in front of our fans, and especially on senior night if I were able to break it, it would be something really special for my family and everyone close to me see, and the fans that have been here to see me.”
Later in the evening, QB very well could break career total yardage record (10,875). Flowers, who expects to have his 1-year-old daughter in attendance, needs 357 yards — a typical night at the office for him — to break the mark.
With one rushing touchdown, he also becomes only the sixth player in Football Bowl Subdivsion history to collect 60 passing and 40 rushing TDs in a career.
Additionally, senior PK needs only one field goal to tie the USF season record (19) shared by
Maikon Bonani Auggie Sanchez, Kawika Mitchell’s Quinton Flowers Matt Grothe’s Emilio Nadelman Delbert Alvarado.
