SAN DIEGO — Brian Fogarty, University of San Diego football coach, had hoped for a .500 finish for his team this season. Now, he would be satisfied with .400 as the Toreros (3-6) conclude their season today at 1:30 at Menlo College.
USD started the season by winning three of its first four games but has since lost five straight. The Toreros are coming off their worst loss of the season, 41-7, to Occidental.
But it hasn't been a disappointing season for Torero wide receiver Jeff Mansukhani, who has caught a team-high 45 passes and scored 8 touchdowns. He scored in each of USD's first seven games but has been shut out the last two weeks. He was held to only one reception by Occidental.
Pat Dixon, USD's junior quarterback, has struggled recently. He completed only 8 of 35 passes for 111 yards against Occidental. Dixon has completed 41% of his passes this season.
A year ago, Menlo was 9-0-1 and ranked No. 1. This season, the Oaks are 3-4-1, but that includes a 27-14 victory over Occidental.
