Box Score

DAVIS, Calif.- The University of San Diego football team fell to UC Davis by a score of 31-3 Saturday night from Aggie Stadium. The Toreros (2-1) were unable to capitalize on offensive opportunities throughout the contest, while UC Davis (1-2) earned their first win of the season with the victory.

USD took the opening kickoff and grinded out 44 yards in 12 plays during the opening drive. However, a 47-yard field goal attempt by Ernie Collins was blocked by Bobby Erskine, ending the Toreros' scoring chance.

The Aggies took advantage on the ensuing possession when quarterback Austin Heyworth connected with Cory Galindo for a six yard touchdown pass at the 3:25 mark that was followed by a point after that gave UC Davis an early 7-0 lead.

USD had another scoring opportunity early in the second quarter, but Collins' 36-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left.

After a missed field goal from UC Davis' Sean Kelley, the Torero offense marched 49 yards into Aggie territory before Mason Mills' pass was intercepted by Andre Allen at the UC Davis 20-yard line with just over eight minutes remaining in the half.

The USD defense helped shutdown the Aggies on the next three UC Davis possessions. However, after getting the ball at their own 25-yard line with three minutes left in the half, Mills was intercepted on the first play of the drive by Jonathan Perkins.

Coming out in the second half, UC Davis tacked on another seven points when backup quarterback Randy Wright found Tom Hemmingsen for a six-yard touchdown pass in their first drive of the half, putting the Aggies up 14-0.

With Mills knocked out of the game before halftime, the Torero offense fell on the shoulders of redshirt freshman Kyle Miller. Unfortunately, the Toreros were again hampered by turnovers when Miller was picked off by Jordan Glass at the UC Davis 36-yard line in USD's first drive of the half.



After back-to-back three-and-outs by each team, UC Davis went up 21-0 when Wright threw a three-yard touchdown pass to Mark Martindale with just under four minutes to play in the third quarter.

USD answered, however, with a seven play, 45-yard drive that resulted in their lone points of the day, a 41-yard field goal by Collins that put the score at 21-3 with seconds remaining in the third quarter.

The final quarter was all Aggies as UC Davis added to its lead with a 24-yard field goal from Kelley that gave them a 24-3 edge, followed by a 17-yard touchdown pass from Wright to Hemmingsen with 5:31 to play, giving UC Davis their final 31-3 advantage.

Kenny James led the Torero offense with 117 yards on 19 carries as USD outrushed UC Davis 150-23. Mills was 10 of 20 with 92 yards and a pair of interceptions before his departure, while Miller completed one pass for 13 yards with two interceptions. Wright paced the Aggies offensively as he threw for 278 yards on 22 completions in 35 attempts and three touchdowns.

Zach Dunaj and Joey York each tallied eight tackles for the Toreros, while Mario Kurn registered his third sack of the season and Blake Oliaro his first. The Aggies' Patrick Shelton led the UC Davis defense with seven tackles on the night.

USD returns to action next Saturday, Sept. 24th when they travel to face Morehead State in their Pioneer Football League opener at 9:30 am PT.
