More news out of footbal, although this one is less suprising.

South Florida announced Tuesday a one-game agreement to play Charleston Southern, completing the Bulls’ 2009 schedule.

It will be the second FCS opponent on the schedule this year for the Bulls, which means one of the games will not count towards bowl eligibility. USF also plays in-state powerhouses Florida State and Miami.

USF was put in a bind when Florida International bought out of its agreement on Sept. 19 for $200,000. FIU will play Rutgers next season.

“We feel fortunate that a quality FCS opponent was available at this late date and that Charleston Southern was willing to adjust their schedule,” said USF Director of Athletics Doug Woolard.  “We are happy that our fans will be able to see six home games at Raymond James Stadium this season, which was our primary consideration in filling the unexpected void in our 2009 schedule.
