USD Goes for Fourth Shutout

October 10, 1987|CHRIS ELLO

SAN DIEGO — Coach Brian Fogarty knows it can't last forever.

The University of San Diego football team will go for a fourth consecutive shutout at 7:30 tonight when is plays Azusa Pacific at USD.

"Well, of course, it has to stop somewhere, but you never know," Fogarty said. "We've been playing awfully well, and if we keep it up, we'll continue to be successful."

USD (3-0-1) has consecutive 28-0 victories over Redlands, La Verne and Whittier.

Azusa Pacific is coming off its first victory of the season, 20-15 over La Verne last Saturday. Azusa (1-3) is trying to adjust to the loss of Christian Okoye, a 6-foot 3-inch, 253-pound running back who is now a rookie with the Kansas City Chiefs. Okoye rushed for more than 162 yards and scored 2 touchdowns in Azusa's 49-19 victory over USD last season.

Azusa also lost four offensive linemen and two defensive linemen from last season.

"Last year, they were just overpowering against us," Fogarty said. "But they've lost some people. We have to respect them, of course, but at least they're not as big as they've been the last few years."
