The University of South Florida football team is featured in the new issue of Sports Illustrated hitting newsstands. While New England Patriot Tom Brady is on the cover, USF is highlighted with a ribbon text box along the lower right hand corner. The story is written by Phil Taylor and is titled, “Fresh Juice in Florida.”

Below is paragraph from the article:
“Those results opened the door a bit wider for South Florida, which won at Auburn and beat West Virginia when the Mountaineers were No. 5 in the nation, to do what would have been considered all but impossible a few weeks ago — slip into the BCS championship game. If Appalachian State can walk into the Big House and stun fifth-ranked Michigan, if Stanford, with its paper-thin roster, can prove to prodigiously talented USC that games aren’t won with a depth chart, why should it be a shocker that USF, a program that didn’t even have offices for its coaching staff three years ago, has a realistic chance to play for the national title? “It’s just been that kind of year,” says Southern Cal coach Pete Carroll. “You can take the concept of who’s a favorite and who’s an underdog and throw it out the window. You don’t have to be a big-name school to win; you just have to play good football.”

USF is also scheduled to be featured in USA Today on Thursday and in ESPN The Magazine‘s Oct. 24 issue.
