TAMPA, Fla. (October 22, 2012) – This year marks the 16th annual Homecoming celebration for USF Football.


Throughout the week of Oct. 22, the University of South Florida community will come together for a series of traditional events in preparation for the big game on Saturday. For an event schedule, click here.


Though this is only the 16th celebration for USF Football, Homecoming is a USF tradition that dates back to 1964. Early USF Homecomings were scheduled around USF basketball games. Since the 1997 inaugural football season, USF Homecomings have been scheduled during football season.
