Toreros aim to keep PFL home streak & title hopes alive

San Diego Toreros (3-2, 2-1 PFL) vs. Drake Bulldogs (3-3, 2-1 PFL)
Torero Stadium at Walter J. Zable Field (San Diego, CA)
Saturday, October 17th, 2015 @ 2:00 p.m. PT

Winners of their last 20 games against Pioneer Football League opponents at home, the Toreros own the league's longest active streak in that category.

It previously belonged to Drake, who was victorious at home against 19 straight PFL foes before USD pulled off a 17-14 come-from-behind victory last season at Drake Stadium. Down 14-0, the Toreros rallied back with 17 unanswered points.

USD will try to avoid suffering the same faith this Saturday when they host the revenge-minded Bulldogs in a must-win contest for both teams.

Despite a tough 14-13 loss at Dayton last week, the defending PFL champions are still alive in the title race. With a 2-1 league record, they're tied for second place with Drake and Morehead State, while Dayton sits on top of the standings at 2-0.
