South Florida is headed to the Miami Beach Bowl, sources told ESPN.
Under third-year coach Willie Taggart, USF rebounded from a 1-3 start to win seven of its last eight regular-season games and finish 8-4. The Bulls will play a team from Conference USA, most likely Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers host Southern Miss on Saturday for the C-USA title.
South Florida will be making its first bowl appearance since 2010.
