After averaging just over 17 points a game last season, USF opened its 2015 campaign by splashing 51 points on the board against the FAMU rattlers on the way to a 51-3 victory. The Bulls only scored a combined 206 points all of last season, so there was reason to celebrate. But it's not every day a team gets to celebrate in the locker room with a famous rapper.

USF freshman defensive end Vincent Jackson posted a video to his Twitter account after the win of rapper Plies with his arm around head coach Willie Taggart, giving him the seal of approval.

Not exactly what you'd expect in the locker room after a season opening victory, but maybe the Bulls are on to something. Plies seems pretty confident that USF will be "bustin' the scoreboard every Saturday," but a much bigger challenge lies ahead in Tallahassee next weekend as the Bulls are set to face the Seminoles.
