Bulls seeks 100th win in Ray Jay, sixth win on year for first bowl eligibility since 2018
TAMPA, Nov. 20, 2023 – There will be prizes, records falling and much on the line Saturday, when the USF Football team (5-6; 3-4 American) takes on Charlotte (3-8; 2-5 American) on the second-annual Fan Appreciation Night presented by Tryp360 at Raymond James Stadium.
USF will thank all fans in attendance with gifts upon entering the stadium and fans will have the chance to win prizes throughout the game such as a flat screen TV, Play Station 5, Apple Earbuds, a stay in a beach house, concert tickets to acts such as Kenny Chesney, Drake and Bad Bunny, Tampa Bay Lightning tickets and numerous branded giveaways all together valued at more than $80,000. Prizes will be awarded individually as well to entire rows and sections of fans in the stadium during the game.
The Bulls will honor 15 seniors prior to the 7:30 p.m. kick off on ESPNU as USF looks to capture the program’s 100th victory in Raymond James Stadium and secure its first bowl bid since 2018.
The Bulls may also see several big individual standards reached as redshirt freshman quarterback Byrum Brown (Raleigh, N.C.) is just 87 yards short of breaking the program’s season passing record and just a bit more from becoming the first USF 3,000-yard passer. Graduate wide receiver Sean Atkins (Viera) already owns USF season records for receptions (79) and receiving yards (900), but the 5-10, former walk-on coming off 10 catches for 92 yards at UTSA could also become the first USF player to post 1,000 yards receiving in a season.

Among premium items given away will be: 50-inch TV, PS5 Gaming System, Apple Earbuds, Kenny Chesney tickets, Drake tickets, Bad Bunny tickets, Tampa Bay Lightning tickets, three days in a five-bedroom beach house, Nate Bargatze tickets, Kat Williams tickets, Kevin Gates tickets, Harlem Globetrotters tickets,
Row & Section Prizes (awarded to all fans in a row): Busch Gardens Christmas Town tickets, PDQ gift cards, Jersey Mikes gift cards, Zoo Tampa entrance, Tampa Aquarium entrance, free popcorn and drink from Legends, Rocky Magnets, Outback Bloomin Onion cards, Portillo’s BOGO cards, Fanatics gift cards.
