 East Carolina Pirates   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Oct. 15 – at SMU (1-10, 1-7 in Conference USA) – Offense: The SMU offense was painful to watch for most of last year with inconsistencies at quarterback, an infant running back corps, and a line that spent most of the season looking for the right combination.
Oct. 22 – at Memphis (6-5, 5-3 in Conference USA) – Offense: The offense was a finely tuned machine last year averaging 460 yards and close to 36 points per game good enough to finish in the top ten nationally.
Nov. 26 - UAB (8-3, 6-2 in Conference USA) – Offense: The Blazer offense won't have the explosiveness it had last year with deep-threat targets Roddy White and Bradly Chavez gone, but the attack will still be effective led by star QB Darrell Hackney and three good backs operating behind a massive, experienced line.

 Sports: Griffin's biggest score: joining Conference USA
Conference USA membership has been a boon, especially in basketball because the Bulls share league revenue and enjoy far more national attention than before.
Near the end of this year, USF will submit a report on its second season to the conference's board of directors, which is composed of the school presidents.
"The issue simply is one of whether or not the conference believes the program is ready and that it's in the best interest of the conference to expand its football membership." One factor in USF's favor: The league's five-year television contract with Fox expires after the 2000 season.
