USF Bulls football on ESPN Primetime vs. Alabama

TAMPA (USF) – The USF Bulls will receive primetime ESPN television coverage against Alabama on Saturday, Sept. 7. The game will be played in Tuscaloosa with a 7 p.m. kickoff.

In 2023, the Bulls faced the 10th ranked Crimson Tide 17-3 at Raymond James Stadium that drew 4.8 million viewers on ABC. The 2024 game marks USF’s second trip to Alabama, as the Bulls fell 40-17 in the first game of the 2003 season at Legion Field in Birmingham.

The 2023 season saw the Bulls program produce the best six-game turnaround and a Boca Raton Bowl rout of Syracuse (45-0) in its first season under head coach Alex Golesh.  USF’s 2024 home games start with an Aug. 31 match against Bethune-Cookman. That game will be broadcast on ESPN+ with 7pm kickoff. The Bulls then travel to Southern Mississippi on Sept.14 for another 7pm start on ESPN+.

There are also two confirmed Friday prime-time games, Oct. 11 vs. Memphis in Raymond James Stadium and a Nov. 1 contest at Florida Atlantic.  The remaining kickoff times and television coverage are expected to be made on a weekly basis as part of the American Athletic Conference’s 12-day selection process.
