In the history of the USF Bulls, every other running back is now watching Marlon Mack run away.
Mack, a junior, became the leading rusher in the history of the school Saturday night in a 45-20 victory over Cincinnati.
Mack rushed for 118 yards and two scores, breaking Andre Hall’s old record. Mack broke the record on a 49-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Quinton Flowers had 196 yards passing and 74 yards rushing.
“I was really excited about our defense,” said USF coach Willie Taggart. “That’s the defense that we all like to see. Guys are going out and getting turnovers. I was really impressed with the adjustments we made at halftime and the way our guys tackled in the second half.”
The Bearcats managed to make a game of it for a half, trailing only 20-14 at the break. But USF outscored Cincy 21-0 in the second half.
USF plays East Carolina at home Saturday.
