The Bulls' senior night game Thursday against Tulsa may not be Quinton Flowers' final collegiate contest in the bay area after all.

Flowers, on pace to become USF's career leader in total offense, has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game, Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko reported Saturday.

The game will be held Jan. 20 at Tropicana Field. Kickoff is at 3 p.m.

Flowers, arguably the greatest player in school history, enters the Tulsa contest with 10,518 career total yards — 357 shy of Matt Grothe's career record. His 3,345 career rushing yards are only 264 shy of Marlon Mack's USF career mark.

Don't be shocked if at least one other Bull (Marquez Valdes-Scantling? Deatrick Nichols? Bruce Hector?) gets a Shrine invite as well.
