TAMPA - Head coach George Kiefer knows his Bulls will have to be on their 'A' game if they want to stay undefeated in Big East play this week.

The No. 8 USF men's soccer team (9-2-2, 4-0-1 in Big East) gets another tough road test Tuesday night when it plays at No. 16 Louisville, which is 5-0-1 at home this season.

"Louisville was ranked No. 1 in the country for a while this year, so it's a great game for us," Kiefer said. "We look forward to it."

The Bulls are certainly built for the road and have posted a 4-1-1 record away from Corbett Soccer Stadium. Their latest win came by a 3-2 margin in overtime against Syracuse on Saturday.

"I think the Syracuse game showed a lot of character of the guys," Kiefer said. "There is a lot of belief in the team and you're starting to see a lot of guys from the bench contribute as well."

A lot of eyes will be on the Bulls in Tuesday's 7 p.m. game that will be broadcast nationally on ESPNU. It marks the third televised game for USF this season with two available for a national audience.

"When we're recruiting players all over the country we can tell them to tune in. That's always helpful," Kiefer said. "I think they'll get to see the way that we like to play. It's a good situation for the program."
