[dropcap]N[/dropcap]obody will accuse South Florida coach Willie Taggart of backing down from a challenge.
South Florida visit Wisconsin on Sept. 27, 2014 with the Badgers making a return trip to Tampa on Sept. 16, 2017. The Bulls will host Maryland on Sept. 6, 2014 and travel to play the Terps on Sept. 19, 2015.
“We are pleased to be able to add quality Big Ten opponents in Wisconsin and Maryland to our football schedule,” South Florida athletic director Doug Woolard said. “They should be outstanding opportunities for our football program as well as attractive games for our fans.”
South Florida’s 2014 non-conference schedule consists of home games against Western Carolina (Aug. 30), Maryland (Sept. 6) and N.C. State (Sept. 13) along with the trip to Wisconsin (Sept. 27).
“This is the type of schedule we want to have here at USF,” Taggart said. “We want to challenge and prove ourselves against top competition.
“We think it is important to play these types of non-conference games not only for recruiting, but also to excite our fan base and for the continued growth of our program.”
