PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Local 10 sports reporter Clay Ferraro believed in USF. His faith in the Bulls paid off, catapulting him to the top of the pack in the Local10.com college football picks.
Ferraro was the only one to pick USF to upset Syracuse in Tampa. His pick broke a three-way tie with Local 10 sports director Will Manso and Local 10 sports reporter Andrea Brody to give him a one-game lead in the standings.
Manso and Brody remain tied with a 49-18 overall record.
Local 10 meteorologist Julie Durda was .500 for the week. Her upset pick of California backfired as the Golden Bears fell to Utah.
