Mario Cristobal trolled Jimmy Lake over ‘academic prowess’ comment

Mario Cristobal got in his jokes at Jimmy Lake’s expense after his Oregon Ducks beat Lake’s Washington Huskies 26-16 on Saturday night.

Oregon fell behind early 7-0 and trailed 9-3 before coming on. The Ducks went to the run game and started to mount a comeback. They rushed for 329 yards and two touchdowns. Travis Dye had 211 of the yards and a touchdown.

After the road win, Cristobal was fired up. He also trolled Lake in his postgame press conference with a “prowess” mention.

Cristobal was referencing Lake’s comment that Washington was not a recruiting rival to Oregon due to the Huskies’ “academic prowess.”

After touting his program’s academics, Lake proceeded to make a dumb decision late in the game, leading to plenty of jokes. Even Cristobal couldn’t resist taking a shot.
