In the battle for bowl eligibility, USF and Miami have not exactly supplied the offensive fireworks as they go into halftime tied at 3.
The teams have combined for seven punts and a turnover each. Both have had their opportunities but have come up short. Miami had a chance to score on its final possession but had several missteps, including a penalty and sack.
USF has gotten good pressure on Jacory Harris, but he has been able to break away from most of it, going 13-of-19 for 139 yards in the first half. B.J. Daniels has not been quite as effective, going 10-of-17 for 86 yards and an interception. That turnover came a play after USF recovered a Miami fumble, squandering an opportunity to take advantage of the miscue.
Somebody is going to have to step up and make a play between these in-state rivals.
