TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - South Florida's season won't end with a bowl appearance, and the Bulls would like to ruin any chance Pittsburgh might have of finishing an underachieving year of its own on a positive note.

 

Pitt (5-6, 2-4) can become eligible for a postseason berth by winning the final conference game the Panthers will play before moving from the Big East to the ACC next fall. USF (3-8, 1-5) is hoping to undermine that prospect while maybe also saving coach Skip Holtz's job.

 

The Panthers have rebounded from an 0-2 start to get themselves into position to possibly earn a bowl berth for the fifth straight year. The Bulls have been in a downward spiral, losing eight of nine, since beating Chattanooga and Nevada to begin their third season under Holtz.
