South Florida ended the 2018 college football season with six straight losses. Charlie Strong's program was hoping to get off on the right track in 2019. That didn't happen, though.

Wisconsin blew out USF, 49-0, to open Week 1 of the 2019 college football season on Friday evening.

The Bulls were out-classed in basically every aspect of the game, giving up 433 yards of total offense while gaining only 157 yards.

Strong was not a happy man following the game.

“Very disappointing and embarrassing loss," Strong said after the game. "No reason for that. Thought I had them ready to play. Guess I didn’t."

Welp, that is honest.

South Florida will hope to get things going in Week 2, when the Bulls take on Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

Kickoff for that one is set for 2 p.m. E.T. on ACC Network.
