TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Andre Hall ran for 155 yards and scored two touchdowns Saturday night to help South Florida beat UCF 31-14.

A crowd of 45,139, second-largest in South Florida's relatively brief football history, watched the Bulls (2-1) build a 21-0 halftime lead on the strength of a relentless running attack that finished with 326 yards.

UCF (0-2) was held to 45 yards rushing and was shut out until Joe Burnett returned a third-quarter punt 60 yards to the South Florida 4, setting up Steven Moffett's touchdown run on the next play.

Moffett also threw a 9-yard TD pass to Brandon Marshall late in the fourth quarter.

One play after Hall nearly scored on a 17-yard run, Pat Julmiste added South Florida's last TD on 1-yard quarterback sneak late in the third quarter. Kyle Bronson added a fourth-quarter field goal to make it 31-7.

Moffett threw for 208 yards and Mike Walker hauled in a game-high 70 yards receiving in the loss. Travonti Johnson posted a career-high 12 tackles.

UCF makes its home debut next Saturday, hosting Marshall at Citrus Bowl in the inaugural Conference USA game for both schools. Kickoff is slated 6 p.m.
