USF head coach Willie Taggart will buy 500 tickets for students for the team’s Miami Beach Bowl game against Western Kentucky, USF Athletics announced Friday.

The game, which takes place on Dec. 21 at Marlins Park in Miami, in USF’s first bowl appearance in five seasons.

“I just want to say thank you to all the USF students that made Ray Jay rock this season and I can’t wait to see them all in Miami and turn Marlins Park into Ray Jay South,” Taggart said. “The students are a huge part of our success and we want them to come down and get No. 9 with us.”

The Bulls went 5–1 at home this season and are in search of a program record-tying ninth win.
