TAMPA, Fla — Jordan McCloud threw for a touchdown, Noah Johnson ran for another, and South Florida beat The Citadel 27-6 to give Jeff Scott a win in his first game as a head coach.
Scott, who had served as Clemson’s co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach since 2015, replaced the fired Charlie Strong in December 2019.
McCloud hit DeVontres Odoms-Dukes for a 10-yard touchdown to make it 7-3 with 49 seconds left in the first quarter and USF (1-0) led the rest of the way.
Colby Kinter, who opened the scoring with a 45-yard field goal, made a 41-yarder to pull The Citadel (0-1) within a point with 11:08 left in the second quarter.
