USF keys to success
By GREG AUMAN, Times Staff Writer

3 key matchups
TURNOVERS vs. TURNOVERS: Cincinnati and USF rank second and fourth nationally by forcing 26 and 25 turnovers, respectively. The Bearcats and Bulls need turnovers to win; just look at each teams' losses. For Cincinnati, zero turnovers forced against Louisville, one against Pittsburgh. USF's defense forced just two turnovers in the Bulls' two losses.
USF SCORING vs. SNOOZE ALARM: The Bulls let Connecticut get out to a 16-0 halftime lead, then couldn't dig out of that hole in the second half. Cincinnati has outscored opponents 75-22 in the first quarter, so the Bearcats are used to striking early, which would also lessen USF's home-crowd advantage at Raymond James Stadium.
BOTH KICKERS vs. THEMSELVES: These are the Big East's least-accurate teams on field goals: Cincinnati's Jake Rogers is 7-for-12 this season; USF's Delbert Alvarado is 11-for-20. Alvarado rebounded from two early misses in the rain last week, so Bulls fans can hope today's nice weather bodes well for him.
