USF senior quarterback B.J. Daniels will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his left ankle late in a 13-6 win over UConn on Saturday night.
Daniels was hurt at the end of a fourth-quarter run, and was helped off the field. Coach Skip Holtz said after the game that Daniels was done, saying he was heartbroken for his team leader. Daniels, who took over the starting job as a redshirt freshman in 2009, ends his career with 10,501 yards of total offense, ranking third in Big East history.
Had Daniels been able to finish out the season, he would have been a virtual lock to break the mark of 10,875 by former USF quarterback Matt Grothe.
The Bulls now will turn to redshirt freshman Matt Floyd for the final three games of the season. USF has a bye before playing at Miami on Nov. 17.
