USF Suffers 7th Loss

TAMPA (AP) -

Jake Elliott kicked a pair of first-half field goals, one of them a 56-yarder that hit the crossbar and bounced through to help Memphis beat sputtering South Florida 23-10 for the Tigers' first American Athletic Conference victory on Saturday night.

With 7 losses this season, a post season bowl game is out of reach for the Bulls.

The Tigers (3-6, 1-4) broke open a close game, driving 59 yards in eight plays to score on a 5-yard run by Brandon Hayes that made it 13-3 with 4:09 remaining.

Dion Witty's interception and 22-yard return set up Elliott's third field goal of the night, and Bobby McClain ran back an interception 37 yards for a touchdown to turn it into a rout.

USF (2-7, 2-3) avoided going without an offensive touchdown for the fifth time when Mike White threw a 31-yard scoring pass to Andre Davis with 46 seconds left.
