2019 Pac-12 Football Recreation: Week 1 results

Some big wins, some big performances dot Week 1 action across the Pac-12

NCAA Football: Washington at Brigham Young Melissa Majchrzak-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 of our 2019 recreated football season has kicked off in a big way with two Pac-12 schools headlining the Thursday night action to open the season.

Extended game recaps:

USC 59, Hawaii 17
Cal 42, Northwestern 28
UCLA 41, Nevada 7

USC 59, Hawaii 17

Starting the game at noon local time were the USC Trojans, who trounced the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, 59-17 behind five Kedon Slovis touchdowns (4 passing, 1 rushing). USC saw some of their youth take center stage as Slovis got the start over JT Daniels and fellow true freshman made big plays including two touchdowns by WR Drake London and an interception by CB Chris Steele.

Utah State 34, Utah 16

The Utes started this game exactly like you thought they would have, jumping out to a quick 10-0 lead after Utah State LB David Woodward left the game with an injury early. However, a fired up Utah State team closed the second quarter with a Siaosi Mariner 15-yard touchdown pass from QB Jordan Love to tie things up just before the half.

Utah State outscored the Utes 14-0 in the third quarter to create an insurmountable lead into the fourth despite Tyler Huntley’s best efforts once they opened up the passing game. Ultimately, it would be too little too late as a touchdown from Mariner and field goal from Dominik Eberle put insult to injury on the final score, 34-16.

Passing stats:

Huntley finished the day completing just 50% of his pass attempts and threw an interception on a dropped ball from TE Brant Kuithe. Love, on the other hand, completed three touchdown tosses on the evening but only completed 57% of his pass attempts against the Utes secondary. Jaylon Johnson led the way with four pass deflections into his coverage for Utah.

Utah State receiving stats:

Mariner had the biggest day in terms of splash plays for touchdowns but was largely bottled up by the Utes secondary outside those scores.

Utah receiving stats:

The short-area passing attack for the Utes was outdone as Huntley barely averaged further than 8.0 yards past the line of scrimmage per attempt in this one.
