Last season USD beat Jacksonville by 39 points at Torero Stadium. On Saturday, the Dolphins exacted a bit of revenge. It wasn't a blowout, but this might have hurt even more. Donovan Curry kicked a 50-yard field goal with 1:23 left in the game to give the Fins a 30-29 win, the Toreros first loss of the season.
USD had not been challenged in 2008, easily winning its first 6 games. QB Seb Trujillo threw for 278 yards and 4 touchdowns. WR John Matthews caught two of them. The Toreros return home to face 7-1 Dayton, the only Pioneer League team to beat them last season, next week.
