Box Score

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -The University of San Diego football team dropped its season-opener to No. 11 Cal Poly, 38-16, Saturday evening in a non-conference game at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

Mason Mills completed 29-of-36 passes for 230 yards and had a pair of touchdowns to pace the Torero offense. Kenn James rushed for 102 yards on seven carries, including a 67-yard run, and Reggie Bell had 109 receiving yards. On the defensive side of the ball, Matt Miller led the way with 11 total tackles, while Zach Devaneyrecorded eight tackles.

"The biggest disappointment," first-year Toreros head coach Dale Lindsey said, "would be we made mental errors and missed tackles that led to some explosive scores for them that I don't think we did last year, and that made the difference in the game. I did like the way we competed, and we continued to compete until the very end of the game. We can take a lot of good things from this game as we move forward."

The Mustangs got on the scoreboard first, as running back Kristaan Ivory took the opening offensive play for the team 81 yards on the ground, for a score to give Cal Poly a 7-0 lead.

Three USD possessions later, San Diego got on the scoreboard. Senior quarterback Mason Millsled the Toreros 45 yards down the field on nine plays, setting up a 22-yard field goal by David Last, to move the score to 7-3.

In the second quarter, the Mustangs were finally able to get past a stingy USD defense, and managed to score a 44-yard field goal, to regain a touchdown lead at 10-3.

San Diego's next possession resulted in a seven play, 66-yard drive, that was capped on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Mills to Matt Guillaume, to even the score at 10-all.


 

 

Cal Poly was then able to sneak in the end zone just before halftime on a Ivory 2-yard run, which capped a 7-play 65-yard drive to give the home team a 17-10 lead heading into the break.

Cal Poly then scored a pair of long touchdown runs (61 & 45) in the third quarter, while the Toreros would find the endzone just once more (2-yard TD reception by Reggie Bell) as the game finished at 38-16.

San Diego returns to action on Saturday, as they begin their home slate with a 6 p.m. game against Western New Mexico at Torero Stadium.
