Cougar Football: One in a Row


Nationally ranked 6th USF, defeated fledgling Marian College 57-7 on Saturday afternoon at Bishop D'Arcy Stadium in the Cougars' return home after three consecutive road games.This was USF's first game after Ohio Dominican snapped USF's 54 game winning streak. Not a bad reaction at all.

To emphasize the breadth of the team Quarterback Jeff Wedding rested an injured leg while the game was dominated by two, two, (did I mention two?) USF freshman quarterbacks. Only 53 more to go!

Still, University of Sioux Falls, Carroll College (Montana), St. Xavier College (Illinois) and good ole Ohio Dominican all look hungry, real hungry.

For now though, the focus is one game at a time and next week, Homecoming.

Yep, yesterday was perfect weather. Cool for the game but not cold. We won! Chili cook off afterwards, carnival by the lake, geese flying overhead, ducks in Mirror Lake. Perfect day!
