USF running back Demetris Murray got the start with Darrell Scott out dealing with concussion symptoms and a wrist injury, and he took advantage in the 37-17 win at Syracuse. Murray rushed for 86 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries, season highs in both categories.
USF operated by committee for much of the season but with Scott out they went almost exclusively with Murray and B.J. Daniels. Scott may be able to return next week against Miami.
