The South Florida offense has been primarily known as a quick strike offense, however, a 13 play, 77 yard drive that drained 5:24 off the clock could make a case that its getting the hang of this possession offense thing.

A 13 yard touchdown reception by junior tight end Ben Busbee capped off the drive. Busbee caught the ball around the five yard line, then ran over a Memphis defender on his way into the end zone, right in front of the USF marching band.

Busbee has 3 receptions for 36 yards, while quarterback Matt Grothe is 13-of-19 for 177 yards passing and two touchdowns.

Grothe has 48 yards rushing, as well.

Grothe has surpassed 10,000 yard total offense, which places him as only the second player in Big East history to do so in a career. Pat White was the other player.
