    Nice work, as always. I was surprised to see Ulizio starting for Pitt. Good for him. On Crawford at Cal, I wonder how many instances there are of three transfers in two years at the same position group (Ways, Bunting, Crawford) making meaningful contributions at the same school. Finally, what’s up with Swenson?

      Swenson didn’t start, but came in after halftime at LT. I stopped watching after the 3Q, but he was in there

    Thanks for putting this together.

    Nice to see Ulizio, Crawford, Peters, and Martin do well. Taylor getting his chance to play at least.

    Ulizio starting at Pitt speaks to our OL depth. As does Mayfield and Hayes surviving their first test. Still would like to have Swenson on the roster but things look good on our OL.

    I was kind of hoping Sims and BSJ would play, as some indirect evidence that our CB depth was better than we might think. Oh well. Our top 3 looked great. Can save 2020 worries for another day.

    Wish we had held onto Gray but we’ll be fine at RB.
