TAMPA, Fla. -- South Florida has made its way back into the national rankings.

The Bulls came in at No. 24 in both the NFCA Coaches' Poll and ESPN/USA Softball Top 25 polls after winning their 12th consecutive Big East game on Sunday.

USF (35-12, 13-1) took a three-game set from Providence last weekend and has won 29 of its past 31 games. The Bulls’ pitching staff ranks second nationally with a 1.29 ERA.

Individually, Sara Nevins’ 0.96 ERA ranks fifth in the country, while Lindsey Richardson (1.16 ERA) is eighth. Nevins and Richardson have combined to throw four no-hitters this season after Richardson produced her third in game two of Saturday’s doubleheader against Providence.

Shortstop Kourtney Salvarola leads the Big East with 13 homers after hitting a three-run shot to cap off USF’s 10-0 win in game one on Saturday.
