It took the South Florida offense just 1:02 to score the first ever touchdown in the magicJacks St. Petersburg bowl.

Senior wide receiver Taurus Johnson capped off a three play, 43 yard drive with a 26 yard touchdown reception from Grothe. Initially, the play was ruled a fumble in the end zone by the officials, as Johson lost control of the ball at the pylon. However, the call was eventually overturned.

Sophomore Dontavia Bogan took the opening kickoff 56 yards to set up good field position for the Bulls in the opening drive.
