Willie Taggart buying 500 USF students bowl tickets


To say that South Florida head coach Willie Taggart has had a successful season would be an understatement. He has helped the team get better over the last few years and he led the Bulls from 2-10 to 4-8 and then 8-4 and a second place finish in the AAC East.

The Bulls will be playing in their first bowl game since 2010 as they take on Western Kentucky, Taggart’s former school, in the Miami Beach Bowl on December 21. The school announced that Taggart will be helping 500 students get to the game as he is buying 500 students tickets to the bowl game just down the road.

Taggart was pretty simple about his explanation for his generous act for the students.

“I just want to say thank you to all the USF students that made [Raymond James Stadium] rock this season and I can’t wait to see them all in Miami and turn Marlins Park into Ray Jay South,” Taggart told USA Today. “The students are a huge part of our success and we want them to come down and get No. 9 with us.”

The Bulls were 5-1 this year at home, so it’s no surprise that Taggart would be willing to pay the students back.

The Bulls take the field against the Hilltoppers on December 21 at 2:30 p.m. EST on ESPN.
