1. Rocky the Bull
Rocky is the official mascot of the University of South Florida and can be seen on the sidelines throughout the game. Rocky pumps up the crowd with his antics and is a big part of a USF game, so keep your eyes peeled for him during games.
2. Bulls Tailgating Association
The Bulls Tailgating Association’s motto is “party hard, cheer harder” so if you’re looking to join one of the most raucous tailgates at a USF game then look no further. You can join in the fun for as low as $2 if you don’t need to park, so come on down and join in on the festivities.
3. Bulls Club Game Day Tailgate
If you’re looking for a premium tailgate location, then the Bulls Club tailgate is the spot for you. Here you’ll be able to enjoy a full buffet, beer, wine, and other beverages. The Bulls Club is perfect if you don’t want to go through the hassle of setting up your tailgate.
4. University of South Florida Herd of Thunder
The 320 member band put on an outstanding display during Bulls games entertaining USF fans young and old. The pregame and halftime show, as well as the music, played throughout the game, enhances the gameday atmosphere inside Raymond James Stadium and puts a smile on Bulls fans faces as well.
5. The Bull
The Bull is played on key third downs to give the USF defense some added inspiration to make the stop. While performing this cheer, Bulls fans wave their Bull hands in the air to throw the opposition off of their game.
6. Pirate Ship
A unique aspect of Raymond James Stadium is the 103-foot, 43-ton steel and concrete replica pirate ship. No other stadium in all of the sports has one, so make sure to stop by and take a picture when attending a Bulls game.
After every Bulls’ score, a cannon sound is made in celebration of the Bulls scoring. Listen for the cannon to energize the crowd and add to the festive atmosphere whenever USF scores.
8. Rivalry with UCF
Each Thanksgiving weekend these two bitter instate rivals duke it out. The rivalry between UCF and USF dates back to 2005 and has been rekindled recently as both teams are now members of the American Athletic Conference. USF leads the all-time series 4-2 and will look to extend their lead this season.
