Great effort by the star junior QB who showed why he's a Div 1 lock for a big school. Paly showed that they can't support the star QB with players with good hands. Defense played tough for Paly but they just don't have the tackling capability and down field coverage. Special Teams killed Paly in this game. Two bad sequences for Special Teams cost Paly 14 points. I expect the league to light up the Paly defense all year. Coaches better get busy with new rotations on WR and Defense fast.
Mitty didn't look that strong against Paly. Mitty looked balanced but didn't have any big standouts in this game. The 98 yard kickoff return was notable but it was due to blown special teams coverage.
Paly wins this game if they played decent special teams and the receivers make the catches on offense.
