USF Loses to Utah, in Spite of Mormon's Record

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Last Saturday, the University of South Florida lost the first game in their attempt to beat three Utah teams, Utah State, Utah and Southern Utah, but a Mormon player on USF's football team set a kind of record for the game: The most tickets requested.

Sophomore tight end Tommy Hunter is, according to Mormon News' records, the only Mormon on South Florida's team. Like many Mormons throughout the U.S., his family has ties to Utah -- apparently a lot of them. Hunter requested 53 tickets to last Saturday's game against the University of Utah, played in Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. The request set a USF record, probably making his coaches wonder exactly how big his family is.

One report last week in the St Petersburg Times suggested that because it was playing three Utah schools, South Florida could claim the 'Beehive Boot,' the trophy given to the best record among the state's division 1-A schools, Utah, Utah State and BYU. Unfortunately, as Hunter's 53 guest saw, USF won't get to make that claim.
