Flowers, Mack each run for 2 TDs; USF beats UCF 48-31

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Quinton Flowers and Marlon Mack each ran for two touchdowns and South Florida scored at least 30 points for the 16th-straight game in its 48-31 win over UCF on Saturday.

USF extended the nation's longest active streak of 30-plus point games and tied school single-season records with four road wins and 10 wins overall.

After UCF took a 7-0 lead fewer than two minutes in, USF (10-3, 6-1 American Athletic Conference) scored 24 points in a row and led the rest of the way. Mack scored on runs of 43 and 56 yards, Juwuan Brown returned a fumble 22 yards for a score and Brandon Behr kicked a 33-yard field goal to make it 24-7 with 5:36 left in the half.

Mack had 155 yards rushing and Flowers added 152 — the fifth game this season that pair each had at least 100 yards rushing.

Tre'Quan Smith had 183 yards receiving and two touchdowns — both career highs — including a 72-yard TD from receiver Tristan Payton on a reverse-pass.
