The Blue Tornado Leaves Irish in its Wake
Father Ryan (2-1, 0-1 DII-AA) held McCallie in check for the first quarter, but 21-striaght points in the second began to put the game out of reach.

McColley, who rushed for 136 yards on 8 carries and a touchdown also scored on a pass; Riddle passed for two touchdowns in addition to his two on the ground.
Father Ryan cut the lead to 21-7 early in the third on a Zach Pfeifer quarterback keeper. Pfeifer finished 5-12 for 59 yards and an interception. He also led the Fighting Irish in rushing, gaining 55 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.
