September 28, 2013 • vs. Buffalo and also named to the lists for the Butkus Award that honors the nation’s best linebacker. Smallwood was a first team All-BIG EAST selection in 2012 and led the Huskies in tackles with 120 and was second in tackles for a loss with 15. He had four sacks and two forced fumbles. Smallwood was tied for 20th in the country in tackles per game (10.0) and was third in the BIG EAST. Entering 2013, Smallwood had played in all 24 UConn games over the past two seasons and with 214 career tackles with 5.5 sacks and 17.5 TFLs.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES CHRISTEN ON FG STREAK BROKEN Redshirt senior kicker Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) missed a 46yard field goal in the third quarter of the Michigan game, which broke a streak of ten-straight FG attempts dating back to last year. He connected on three field goals in the win over Louisville on Nov. 24, 2012, including the winning 30-yarder in the third overtime. His other field goals were 39 yards in the first quarter and a 37-yarder in the first overtime. Dating back to the Syracuse game on October 19, 2012 and including the Towson and Maryland games, he had made ten-straight FG attempts. He missed the ’12 season finale vs. Cincinnati due to injury. WAGNER ALREADY IN THE BOOK UConn redshirt senior Cole Wagner (York, Pa.) has already established himself as a top performer in the UConn record books. Wagner is in his third season as the regular UConn punter and was a Second Team All-Big East selection in 2011. He is now second in UConn career history in punting average (min. 80 punts) with a 40.7 average, while the leader is Desi Cullen (2006-09) with 41.1. Wagner is second in career number of punts (260) and second in career yardage (10,578). Consecutive Years of Returning a Kickoff/Punt for a Touchdown 1.

STADIUM/ATTENDANCE NOTES RENTSCHLER FIELD The Huskies moved into brand new Rentschler Field in East Hartford for the 2003 season and UConn will mark the 10th Anniversary of the stadium in 2013 with a number of special events and promotions, including the 2013 game tickets, which features a great moment in Rentschler Field history on each one. The ticket for the Michigan game featured D.J. Hernandez celebrating a successful two-point conversion in UConn’s doubleovertime win over Pittsburgh in 2006. The ticket for the Maryland game featured Alfred Fincher and UConn’s 22-20 win over Duke in 2004, the second year of stadium play. The ticket for the Towson game featured quarterback Dan Orlovsky and the Opening Day Game, a 34-10 win over Indiana on Aug. 30, 2003. Located within miles of Interstates 91, 84 and 384, the home of the Huskies lies on 75 acres of land donated to the State of Connecticut from the historic Pratt & Whitney Airfield. The stadium, like the former airfield, is named for that company’s founder, Frederick Rentschler. The stadium boasts a capacity of 40,000 with 38 luxury suites. The Huskies have sold out 30 of their first 65 dates at Rentschler Field. UConn has played to 96.4-pct. of capacity all-time there, drawing 2,506,962 fans, or an average of 38,568 per game. UConn set a new all-time single-game attendance record at Rentschler Field on Saturday against Michigan with a crowd of 42,704. That capacity was achieved with extra bleachers brought in for that game. FRIENDLY RENTSCHLER FIELD The Huskies went 7-0 at home in 2007 at Rentschler Field and also 6-0 in 2010. UConn’s 3-4 mark at home in 2006 was its only sub-.500 record at Rentschler Field. UConn finished 4-3 at Rentschler Field in 2011 and was 3-3 in ’12. The seven home wins in 2007 set a school record for a single season which was previously set in 2004. UConn stands at 45-19 all-time at Rentschler Field including a 25-10 mark in non-conference games.
