SAN DIEGO — The University of San Diego football team, which lost last week's season opener on a touchdown with 13 seconds left, plays its first home game of the season, against Whittier College tonight at the USD football field. Game time is 7:30.
This will be the 12th meeting between Whittier and USD, which lost, 21-17, to Redlands last Saturday.
Two years ago, the Toreros beat Whittier, 23-19.
Senior quarterback Mike Owens is Whittier's foremost offensive threat. Owens, a transfer from Oregon, completed 12 of 24 passes for 218 yards and 2 touchdowns last week, in Whittier's season-opening 34-17 loss to Azusa Pacific.
