The Fighting Irish put away the Pitt Panthers Saturday 42 – 30. The Kizer to Fuller connection worked to perfection throughout the day. However the defense continues to give up yards and points which will be a challenge when they meet Stanford the last game of the season. Kisser threw for 4 TD and ran in another as he continues to mature into one of the best college QBs. Will Fuller caught 3 TDs and had 152 receiving yards. The one concern is the injury to C. J. Prosise. Prosise hurt his shoulder early on and hopefully won’t be out to long.
The Cal Bears continue their losing streak, now 4 games, in Eugene. The Ducks ran all over Cal 44 – 28. Cal got out to a 10-0 lead then folded their tent. Jered Goff once again had a below average evening going 18 – 41 for 329 years with 2 TDs and a pick. Oregon out gained Cal 777 yards to 432. A lot of Cal’s yards came in garbage time. It now seems apparent that Sonny Dykes is likely to leave at the end of the season and that Goff will also leave even he doesn’t seem ready for prime time NFL. However it is likely that Goff will leave Cal because he will taken fairly high in the first round due to a lack of quality QB going in the upcoming draft. Cal now has 3 games left; they should win at least one, Oregon State, but not likely to beat Stanford. They do have an outside chance against a struggling ASU.
