UConn’s overall GSR in 2009 was the third-highest of the more than 50 state universities that participated in a bowl game. In 2012, the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) for the UConn football team was an impressive 963 over a four-year cycle, with a one-year mark of 950 for the 2010-11 academic year. The 963 was above the national average for FBS schools (952) and public institutions (943). HUSKIES VS.

UConn is the only BIG EAST school to have four players picked that early since the league was reorganized in 2005. UConn had two players selected in the 2010 NFL Draft and four more in ’11 with one in 2012. The following are the Huskies on NFL rosters: * OT Will Beatty of the New York Giants, in fourth season with 26 career starts in 45 games played. * SS Tyvon Branch of the Oakland Raiders, in fifth season and has started all 16 games in each of the past three seasons..has 404 career tackles. * RB Donald Brown of the Indianapolis Colts, in fourth season and has 1,827 career rushing yards and 11 TD...was UConn’s first-ever first round NFL Draft pick in 2009. * CB Darius Butler of the Indianapolis Colts, is in his fourth season and was picked up by the Colts the week of Sept. 24 … Butler was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week on Nov. 13 in the tenth week of the season…had two interceptions, including one for a TD return, and a fumble recovery in a 27-10 win over Jacksonville. * WR Marcus Easley of the Buffalo Bills, in second season, is on the practice squad. * LB Scott Lutrus of the Indianapolis Colts, in second season but already out for year on IR. * CB Robert McClain of the Altanta Falcons, in third season. * WR Kashif Moore of the San Diego Chargers, a rookie free agent who is on the practice squad, and was on the Indianapolis Colts practice squad earlier in the season. * QB Dan Orlovsky of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in eighth season...has played in 21 career games with 12 starts for 2,880 passing yards...originally played for Detroit then Houston (200910) and Indianapolis (2011). * DE Kendall Reyes of the San Diego Chargers, a rookie second round NFL Draft pick...has two sacks on the season. * FB Anthony Sherman of the Arizona Cardinals, in second season after playing in 15 games last season with seven starts. * RB Jordan Todman of the Minnesota Vikings, in second season and is on the practice squad. * OL Donald Thomas of the New England Patriots, in fifth season and has made 20 starts and played in 38 games over the past five years (2008-12) for the Dolphins, Lions and Patriots.

In the opening game vs. UMass, the Huskies were coming off as they lost the 2011 season finale at Cincinnati and the Maryland win was coming off a loss to N.C. State while the Buffalo win was coming off a loss to Western Michigan. The Temple loss was coming off a loss to Rutgers, the Syracuse loss was coming off the Temple loss and the USF loss was coming off the Syracuse loss. The Pittsburgh win was coming off the USF loss. BALL CONTROL IS THE KEY A telling sign of UConn’s strong performance on both sides of the ball during its tenure as a FBS program has been its ability to both record and prevent long drives. Since the start of the 2002 season, UConn’s offense has strung together 86 scoring drives of at least 80 yards while the Husky defense has surrendered just 69 such marches. UConn also holds a 22-10 advantage over its opponents in the number of 90-yard and over drives since becoming a I-A program. HUSKIES DOMINATING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL Over the past 124 games, UConn has outgained its opponent 70 times. This stretch, like many UConn trends, dates back to a 2824 loss at Vanderbilt on Oct. 26, 2002.

Offense Notes McCombs Hits The 100-Yard Mark Again Redshirt sophomore running back Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) had a breakout season last year as he rushed for 1,151 yards and seven TDs on 275 carries. He was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America and was a Second Team All-Conference pick. McCombs was the second-leading freshman rusher in the country and trailed the leader by only 0.46 yards. McCombs rushing yardage was the ninth-highest in UConn single-season history while his carries were fourth. He was just the second UConn freshman (true or redshirt) to rush for 1,000 yards or more in a season. McCombs carried the ball 23 times for 119 yards on Sept. 22 vs. Western Michigan – marking the first time he has gone over 100 yards this season. His second 100-yard game of the year came in the win over Pittsburgh when he went for 120 yards on 29 carries with one TD. On Saturday, he rushed for 133 yards vs. Louisville on 29 carries. It marked the ninth time in his career that he hit the 100-yard mark and he has 12 career rushing TDs. McCombs is now sixth in UConn career history with 497 rushing attempts. Donald Brown holds the record with 698 from 2006-08. McCombs has 1,951 career rushing yards and will move into the UConn top 10 for career rushing when he passes No. 10 Andre Dixon, who had 1,958 from 2006-09. No. 9 is Tony Jordan with 1,983 from 1978-80 and No. 8 is Jeff Gallagher with 1,989

from 1985-88. No. 7 is Cornell Brockington with 2,198 from 2003-05 while the career leader is Brown with 3,800 from 200608. McCombs rushed for 82 yards on 23 carries vs. UMass with one rushing TD and then had 60 yards on 20 carries with one TD vs. N.C. State. He had a 43-yard reception in the fourth quarter vs. the Wolfpack that set up his five-yard TD rush on the next play. McCombs rushed for 94 yards on 27 carries with one TD in the win over Maryland and had 29 carries for 97 yards vs. Buffalo. He had 12 carries for 32 yards vs. Rutgers and missed the Temple game with an injury. He returned vs. Syracuse and had 16 yards on 12 carries and had 47 yards on 18 carries vs. USF. Whitmer Hits Career Highs Vs. WMU UConn redshirt sophomore Chandler Whitmer (Newnan, Ga.) was named the team’s starter by Paul Pasqualoni heading into preseason camp and made his first collegiate start vs. UMass on Aug. 30. Whitmer was 15 of 25 in the air for 219 yards with two interceptions and was 15 for 27 for 204 yards with three interceptions vs. N.C. State. He was 10 of 16 in the air for 68 yards with no interceptions in the win over Maryland.

He was 15 of 22 for 227 yards and one TD vs. Buffalo and was 14 of 32 for 191 yards and four interceptions vs. Rutgers. Whitmer was 22 of 39 in the air for 293 yards and two TDs in the loss to Temple (Oct. 13). In the first quarter of the game, he was eight of 10 for 159 yards and two TDs. His 42-yard TD pass in the first quarter to TE Ryan Griffin was the longest of his collegiate career. He was 23 of 41 for 296 yards with an interception and a TD vs. Syracuse on Oct. 19 and was a solid 24 for 38 for 284 yards against USF, but did have two interceptions on UConn’s final two possessions. In the win over Pittsburgh, Whitmer was 19 of 25 with an interception and a TD. In the win over Louisville, he was seven of 21 in the air for 72 yards and an interception. He left the game early in the fourth quarter with an injury. In the last five games (Temple, Syracuse, USF, Pittsburgh and Louisville), Whitmer has thrown for 1,158 yards and four TD. Whitmer enrolled at Connecticut for the spring 2012 semester and participated in spring practice and has three years of eligibility. Whitmer originally enrolled at Illinois in the fall of 2010 and was a redshirt. He spent the 2011 fall semester at Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kansas and was 180 for 316 in the air for 3,022 yards with 25 TDs and 14 interceptions. He was named All-Kansas Junior College Conference first team honors and earned National Junior College Athletic Association All-American honorable mention. Butler was the second-ranked junior college team nationally in 2011. Whitmer was named to The Champaign News-Gazette’s All-State team following his senior year of high school at Downers Grove (Ill.) South. He earned all state and all-area honors. He was 18 of 27 in the air for 187 yards and two touchdowns in UConn’s Blue-White Spring Football game on April 21, 2012. Remember Me? It’s Johnny McEntee With Whitmer going down in the fourth quarter, it was up to senior Johnny McEntee (Fullerton, Calif.) to save the day for the Huskies – and he did just that. McEntee, a walk-on, was UConn’s starting quarterback in all 12 games last season, but had seen action in just game this season – the closing moments of the opener vs. UMass.

Phillips had his best day as a collegiate player on Oct. 13 against Temple with seven receptions for 100 yards. He had two receptions in the win against Louisville on Saturday, including a three-yard TD reception in overtime. He had one reception for nine yards at BC in his freshman year of 2010.

He had three receptions for 31 yards in the win vs. Pittsburgh. Hyppolite Makes An Impact Redshirt junior running back Martin Hyppolite (Wakefield, Mass.) had a career-high six carries for 60 yards vs. Buffalo (Sept. 29), including a 50-yard TD rush in the second quarter to give UConn a 17-7 lead. Hyppolite entered the game with just five rushing yards this year and ten for his career. Hyppolite played as a backup TB in his true freshman year of 2010 but then missed all of last year with a knee injury. He carried the ball five times vs. Rutgers for -2 yards in his first career start and twice vs. Temple for four yards. He did not carry the ball vs. Syracuse or USF, had two carries for two yards vs. Pittsburgh and did not carry vs. Louisville. Tight Ends Are Tough Redshirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin (Londouderry, N.H.) was a second team All-BIG EAST selection last year and is moving up the career record book. Griffin is second in UConn history for receptions by a tight end with 113 while No. 1 is former NFL standout Brian Kozlowski (1989-92) with 159. Griffin is second in receiving yards by a tight end with 1,415 while Kozlowski also holds that record with 1,788. Griffin has had a touchdown reception in three of the past four games with a 42-yarder vs. Temple, a 32-yarder vs. Syracuse and a two-yarder vs. Pittsburgh. He also had a 36-yard TD reception vs. Buffalo earlier in the season and now has nine career TD receptions, which makes him fifth in Husky TE history. Griffin owns two of the top ten receiving seasons by a tight end in school history with 33 in 2011 (8th) and 31 in 2010 (tied for tenth). Griffin tied his career high with six receptions vs. Pittsburgh. Redshirt senior tight end John Delahunt (Ottawa, Ont.) is also having an outstanding year as he is the seventh-leading receiver on the team with 17 receptions for 220 yards and a TD. He entered the 2012 season with just 11 career receptions for 118 yards. DeLorenzo Makes First Career Start UConn redshirt freshman tailback Max DeLorenzo (Berlin, Conn.) made his first career start vs. Temple (Oct. 13). He had a solid day with 23 carries for 91 yards with a long of 20. He became the first Connecticut native to start at tailback for the Huskies since Matt Lawrence (Bloomfield) in 2004. He had three carries for one yard vs. Pittsburgh. He had two carries for no gain vs. Louisville.

DEFENSE NOTES Solid Experience Back As has become a yearly habit, the UConn defense returned a strong returning nucleus this season. UConn returns eight of 11 starters to this year’s unit. Senior defensive end Jesse Joseph (Laval, Que.) led the way with 32 career starts, while senior cornerback Dwayne Gratz (Piscataway, N.J.) had 29, senior linebacker Sio Moore (Apex, N.C.) had 21 and senior defensive end Trevardo Williams (Bridgeport, Conn.) has 19. Joseph tore

his left Achilles tendon at Maryland (Sept. 15) and is out for the remainder of the season. Gawdy Defensive Numbers THis Season The Connecticut defense has established itself as one of the top units in college football this season. UConn is 10th in total defense (305.73 yards per game), ninth in rushing defense (100.27 yards per game), 14th in tackles for loss (7.36 per game), 13th in sacks (2.91 per game), 30th in pass defense (205.45 yards per game) and 19th in scoring defense (18.55 points per game). UConn leads the BIG EAST in total defense, rushing defense, pass defense and sacks. UConn has only given up 29 points in the first quarter of games this year (field goal by WMU, TD vs. Buffalo, two FG by Rutgers, two FG by Syracuse. TD by USF) and has given up only 27 first quarter first downs this year. The Husky defense led to a shutout vs. UMass on August 30 and limited the Minutemen to just three first downs, three yards of rushing and 59 total offensive yards. The shutout was the first by UConn since a 38-0 win over Maine on Sept. 8, 2007 and the first over a FCS team since a 38-0 win over Buffalo on Sept. 1, 2005. The three first downs tied a school record for least allowed in a single game as UConn also gave up three vs. Navy in 2002. The three yards of rushing was the seventh lowest allowed in school history. The defense also stepped up vs. N.C. State (Sept. 8) and limited the Wolfpack to seven points, 12 first downs and 54 yards of rushing. The seven points given up by UConn after two games this season was the fewest since UConn began the 2005 season with shutouts vs. Buffalo (38-0) and Liberty (Sept. 10). Trevardo Gets The Career Sack Record Senior defensive end Trevardo Williams (Bridgeport, Conn.) became the career sack leader in UConn history vs. USF (Nov. 3). Williams sacked B.J. Daniels on the third play of the second quarter to set the mark. Williams now has 30.5 career sacks while the former record belonged to Mark Michaels with 27 from 1982-85. Williams added to his sack record by collecting three in the win vs. Louisville on Saturday for a total loss of 17 yards. In the second quarter, he had back-to-back sacks that resulted in losses of six yards each and forced the Cardinals to punt on a possession they had originally moved to the UConn 22-yard line on. Williams is fourth in UConn career history in tackles for a loss with 40.5. Uyi Osunde (1999-03) is the leader there with 49. Williams is fifth in the country in sacks and is first in the BIG EAST at 1.05 per game. He is the ninth-leading total tackler on the Husky team this year. Williams gained preseason notice for 2012 by being named to preseason watch lists for the Bednarik Award, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Lombardi Award. Williams earned Second Team All-BIG EAST honors last year and had a tremendous second half of 2011. Of his 43 tackles in 2011, 20 of them were made in the final five games and of his 15 tackles for a loss, 10.5 were in the final five. He led the BIG EAST and was ranked second in the country in sacks per game with 1.04 and was second in the BIG EAST and 32nd in the country in tackles for a loss. Smallwood 19th In The Country In Tackles Redshirt sophomore linebacker Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) leads UConn in tackles this season with 111 and is 19th

December 1, 2012 • vs. Cincinnati in the country (and is second in BIG EAST) in tackles per game at 10.36. He is also tied for 25th in the country in tackles for a loss with 1.36 per game – which is second in the BIG EAST. Smallwood has been honored twice this season as the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week. He was honored after the Sept. 15 win over Maryland when he had a game-high 14 tackles — five more than any other player in the game — to go with 2.5 sacks, 3.5 TFLs and a forced fumble. Smallwood was also UConn’s leading tackler in the opener vs. UMass as he had seven tackles with 3.5 for a loss. For his efforts, he was named the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week. Smallwood started all 12 games last year for the Huskies and was the second-leading tackler on the team. Gratz Returns For A Touchdown UConn redshirt senior cornerback Dwayne Gratz (Piscataway, N.J.) returned an interception for 37-yards for a touchdown in the second quarter of the game against UMass. UConn returned just one interception for a touchdown last year. The “pick-six” was the second of Gratz’s career as he had a 46-yarder against Oklahoma in the 2011 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Gratz, who also had an interception on Maryland’s first play from scrimmage on Sept. 15 and one vs. USF, now has eight career interceptions. Stephen Returns To Lineup UConn redshirt junior Shamar Stephen (Brookville, N.Y.) returned to the Husky lineup on Sept. 15 vs. Maryland and has now started the last seven games after missing the first two games of ’12 with a knee injury suffered in preseason camp. Stephen had begun camp as a projected starter on the defensive line as he played in 24 of 25 games over the past two seasons. He had three tackles vs. WMU, one against Maryland and Buffalo and five with half a tackle for a loss vs. Rutgers. He had three tackles vs. Temple, two vs. Syracuse and three vs. USF. Against Rutgers, Stephen made a season-high five tackles and blocked a 50-yard field goal attempt. The blocked kick was the first blocked field goal by Connecticut since James Hargrave against Murray State (Sep. 4, 2004). Short Breaks for the Offense The Connecticut defense is 10th in the country in three-and-outs forced this season at 5.00 per game. The Huskies have stopped opponents on third down 66% of the time this season and have forced three-play drives 36.7% (55-for-150) of the time. Florida State leads the country with 6.50 three-and-outs forced per game, followed by TCU (5.73), Alabama (5.33), Wisconsin (5.25) and Missouri (5.18) rounding out the top five.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES Christen Experiences The Ups and Downs Redshirt junior kicker Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) connected on three field goals in Saturday’s win over Louisville, 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, he has made seven-straight FG attempts. Christen connected on seven of his first ten collegiate field goal attempts and all 14 of his extra point attempts this season in his first year as the team’s placekicker entering the October 13

10

game vs. Temple. Christen had handled kickoff duties only for the past two years and is replacing UConn’s all-time leading kicker Dave Teggart this year. While Chrsiten made both his PAT attempts vs. the Owls, he missed four field goals in the game – tries of 36, 42, 44 (blocked) and 28 (OT) yards. Christen was the first player to appear in the interview after the game, which prompted Jeff Jacobs of The Hartford Courant to write: “And then you remember this is a 22-year-old college kid, and he was hurting inside. No, Christen didn’t do his job as a kicker on this day. He did do his job as a stand-up young man. He was the first player in the interview room. He answered the questions with a forthrightness that should be the envy of some professional athletes 10 years his senior. And when he was finished, he shook hands with reporters.” Christen connected on field goals of 36, 47 and 19 yards vs. UMass and hit on two extra points. He connected on his one PAT attempt vs. N.C. State. He missed a 49-yard field goal against Maryland, but came back to make a 34-yarder. He also had three PATs vs. the Terps. He missed a 51-yarder against WMU, but later made a 32-yarder and hit on all three of his PATs. He had a 29-yarder vs. Buffalo and hit on all three of his PAT attempts and against Rutgers he made a 19-yarder and missed a 51-yarder. He came back against Syracuse and connected on a 23-yard FG in the first quarter and scored UConn’s only points vs. USF with field goals of a career-long 50 yards and also a 37-yarder. He was sharp again in the win vs. Pittsburgh with a 29-yard field goal and three extra points. Wagner Already In The Books UConn redshirt junior Cole Wagner (York, Pa.) has already established himself as a top performer in the UConn record books. Wagner has been the Husky punter for the past two seasons and was a Second Team All-Conference pick last year. This season, 25 of his 72 punts have been downed inside the 20 yard line, including three of five punts on Oct. 6 vs. Rutgers. He is now second in UConn career history in punting average (min. 80 punts) with a 41.05 average, while the leader is Desi Cullen (2006-09) with 41.12. Wagner is third in career number of punts (231) and second in career yardage (9,484). Nick Williams Joins Elite Company UConn senior Nick Williams (East Windsor, N.J.) returned a punt 58 yards for a touchdown on Sept. 15 for the opening score of the Maryland game and then had a 80-yard punt return for a TD against Pittsburgh. The return vs. Pittsburgh was just the fifth in school history that went for 80 yards or more for a TD. Against Pittsburgh, he became UConn’s career leader in return yardage (punts, kickoffs and interceptions) with 2,389 – topping the mark of Larry Taylor (2004-07), who had 2,277. He is just the seventh player in UConn history to have two or more punt returns for a TD in a career. Williams becomes just the fifth UConn player in history, and only second in the “FBS Era”, to have both a kick-off and punt return for a TD during a career. He joins Larry Taylor (2004-07), Jordan Younger (1996-99), Nick Giaquinto (1975-76) and Rich Hedgepeth (1974-76). Williams was named the BIG EAST Special Teams Player of the Week following his game vs. Maryland and Pittsburgh. He was the ECAC Special Teams Player of the Week following the Pittsburgh game.

STADIUM/ATTENDANCE NOTES Rentschler Field The Huskies moved into brand new Rentschler Field in East Hartford for the 2003 season. 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. Fan No. 2,000,000 On Friday, Sept. 16, UConn welcomed the 2,000,000th fan to Renstchler Field in its history. That lucky fan was Shane Buzzell of Manchester, Conn.. The Huskies have sold out 29 of their first 61 dates at Rentschler Field. UConn has played to 95.2-pct. Of capacity all-time there, drawing 2,361,541 fans, or an average of 38,089 per game. Rentschler Field Proves Friendly For Huskies 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. The seven home wins in 2007 set a school record for a single season which was previously set in 2004. Prior to the Iowa State loss, UConn had won nine consecutive games at Rentschler Field. UConn stands at 45-17 all-time at Rentschler Field including a 25-7 mark in non-conference games. Michigan, Tennessee Will Visit Rentschler Field Following UConn’s trip to Ann Arbor on Sept. 4, 2010, the Wolverines will come to Rentschler Field on Sept. 21, 2013 to take on the Huskies. UConn will also play a home-and-home series with Tennessee beginning in 2015 with the Volunteers coming to Rentschler Field on Sept. 26 with a return trip to Knoxville on Sept. 3, 2016. Other upcoming non-conference opponents coming to Rentschler Field include Maryland (2013) and Virginia (2106).

Connecticut’s defense dominated the game, holding UMass to just 59 yards of offense and limiting the Minutemen to three first downs. UMass did not have an offensive snap in UConn territory and the three UMass first down tied a Husky school record for the least allowed. Redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 82 yards and a first-quarter touchdown, one of two by the offense. UConn also scored on a 37-yard interception return by redshirt senior cornerback Dwayne Gratz and on a blocked punt. Redshirt junior Chad Christen added field goals of 36, 47 and 19 yards for his first collegiate scores. This was the 72nd meeting between the two programs but the first since 1999, when both teams were Division I-AA. Whitmer, a transfer who threw for more than 3,000 yards in junior college last year, completed 15 of his 25 passes, but also threw two interceptions in his first game as a FBS starter. He hit his first three passes, including a 16-yarder to senior Nick Williams that set up the Huskies’ first score, a one-yard plunge by McCombs that capped a 12-play, 75-yard drive. Williams, who had more than 140 yards of total offense, returned the next UMass punt 34 yards, setting up UConn on the UMass 30. But safety Darren Thellen stopped the UConn drive - and made a few highlight shows - by diving out of bounds and tipping a Whitmer pass back to linebacker Tom Brandt, who made his first career interception. UConn had 372 yards of offense, but had three drives end with turnovers deep in UMass territory. Whitmer split time with redshirt sophomore Scott McCummings, who ran UConn’s version of the “Wildcat” offense. McCummings ran for 13 yards and a one-yard fourth-quarter touchdown that put UConn up 34-0. The defense got into the scoring column when Gratz stepped in front of UMass receiver Marken Michel and returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown with 1:49 left in the first half. The special teams got their score with just over four minutes left in the third quarter. UConn’s Taylor Mack blocked a punt after Colter Johnson dropped the snap, and the Huskies’ Max DeLorenzo recovered in the end zone to give UConn a 27-0 lead. UMass never got its offense started, averaging just over 1 yard per play, and failing to get a first down until just 34 seconds before halftime. Senior defensive end Trevardo Williams (Bridgeport, Conn.), who had 12.5 sacks a year ago, got his first of the season late in the third quarter, one of two sacks by the Huskies on the day. The game was the first between Football Bowl Subdivision programs from New England since 2004, when UConn bested Boston College.

shirt senior quarterback Mike Glennon threw a 46-yard third-quarter touchdown to receiver Bryan Underwood and the Wolfpack held on to beat the University of Connecticut 10-7 on Saturday before a crowd of 34,202 at Rentschler Field. UConn and NC State are both 1-1 on the season. Glennon and UConn redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer each threw for 204 yards. But Whitmer also had three passes intercepted as the Wolfpack forced four Huskies turnovers. All-America cornerback David Amerson recorded his 14th career interception and knocked away a fourth-down pass on Connecticut’s final drive to secure the win. Glennon completed 15 of his 30 passes but was sacked six times. NC State had just 258 yards of offense, but held the Huskies to 239. UConn redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 60 yards and caught a 43-yard swing pass that set up his five-yard fourth-quarter touchdown run to pull UConn to within three points with seven minutes left. Glennon opened the next drive by hitting Tobias Palmer with two quick passes to move into UConn territory. But the Huskies defense stiffened at the 27, and the Wolfpack, heading into a stiff wind, decided to go for it on fourth-and-two. Glennon’s pass to Underwood fell incomplete, giving UConn one more drive with 3:17 remaining. Whitmer moved the Huskies from their own 27 to the 46 before being sacked by linebacker Brian Slay on third down and having Amerson knock down the fourth-down pass. A bizarre UConn turnover led to NC State’s touchdown. Safety Earl Wolff tipped a Whitmer pass into the hands of Huskies redshirt senior tight end John Delahunt, who then fumbled the ball back to Wolff. Three plays later, Underwood ran under a Glennon pass, catching it with his fingertips at the 18-yard line and running the rest of the way into the end zone for a 10-0 lead. Amerson picked off Whitmer’s pass on the next UConn play, but Niklas Sade’s 44-yard FG attempt went wide right. N.C. State’s three halfbacks - Mustafa Green, Tony Creecy and James Washington - combined for just 82 yards. The first points didn’t come until late in the second quarter, when NC State put together the game’s first sustained drive of 15 plays. But after moving 61 yards, a sack by senior Trevardo Williams forced the Wolfpack to settle for a 40-yard field goal from Sade with just under three minutes left in the first half. Connecticut’s best scoring chance before halftime came when Nick Williams’ 30-yard catch set the Huskies up at the N.C. State 37. But after a penalty, Whitmer tripped and fell while dropping back, and an 18-yard catch by Williams set up a fourth-and-2. UConn went for it rather than try a 47-yard field goal into a stiff wind, and Whitmer was sacked by linebacker Rickey Dowdy. UConn won the early battle for field possession, but could not capitalize. The Huskies failed to get a first down after starting their first three drives on their own 39, 48 and the NC State 45. The Huskies didn’t have a first down until the end of the quarter when NC State’s T.Y. McGill was called for roughing Whitmer.

Williams 1-3-4 1.0 1.0 turned a punt for another score as the University of Connecticut football Gratz 0-2-2 1 team defeated Maryland 24-21 Saturday before a crowd of 35,491 at Byrd Stadium. Both teams are now 2-1 on the season. McCombs rushed for 94 yards and his fourth-quarter touchdown. McCummings, who also came in at quarterback occasionally, ran for a three-yard score that gave the Huskies a 14-0 first-half lead. That came after Williams scored the game’s first touchdown on a 58-yard punt return. Connecticut started quickly in going against their former coach, Randy Edsall, who left after 2010 to come to Maryland (2-1). The Huskies outgained Maryland 148-80 in total yardage in the first half and controlled the ball for 18 minutes, 40 seconds. They also came up with timely plays, converting four of nine third-down situations to keep the Maryland offense off the field. Connecticut opened the scoring on Williams’ 58-yard punt return, and redshirt junior Chad Christen’s extra point gave the Huskies a 7-0 lead with 7:05 left in the first quarter. They took advantage of a short field to score their second touchdown, gaining possession at the Maryland 36 after the Terrapins were forced to punt from their four. McCummings’ three-yard run seven plays later made it 14-0 with 12:35 left in the half. Maryland’s offense finally awakened on the next possession. A key play came on fourth-and-four from the Connecticut 37, when quarterback Perry Hills completed an 18-yard pass to Stefon Diggs. One play later, Wes Brown ran for a 19-yard touchdown, and Brad Craddock’s extra point cut the lead to 14-7 with 10:24 remaining in the half. Connecticut redshirt sophomore linebacker Yawin Smallwood sacked Hills and forced a third-quarter fumble that redshirt sophomore Angelo Pruitt recovered for the Huskies at the Maryland 23. UConn couldn’t pick up a first down, but Christen kicked a 34-yard field goal with 3:29 left in the quarter for a 17-7 lead. Smallwood caused problems for the Terrapins throughout the game, with four of his 14 tackles going for losses, including three sacks. After a 75-yard drive, Maryland made it 17-14 on the second play of the fourth quarter when Hills threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs on third-and-te. The Terrapins’ Marcus Leak tipped the pass and Diggs grabbed it for a touchdown to make it 17-14. The Huskies answered on their next possession, driving 76 yards to take a 24-14 lead on McCombs’ 11-yard touchdown run. Hills ran for a 10-yard touchdown that cut the Connecticut lead to 24-21 with 4:39 left. After getting the ball back following a Huskies punt, Maryland reached the Connecticut 39 before its drive stalled with 17 seconds left.

Both teams are now 2-2 on the season. Carder completed 18 of 34 passes before leaving the game late in the third quarter after hitting his throwing hand on a helmet. Josh Schaffer caught six of Carder’s passes for 104 yards, including a 30yard touchdown early in the third quarter that put Western Michigan ahead 24-7. UConn redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer was 28 of 44 for 333 yards passing and three touchdowns for Connecticut. Redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 119 yards while redshirt sophomore Geremy Davis caught nine passes for 123 yards for the Huskies. Connecticut pulled within 24-17 on a two-yard pass from Whitmer to John Delahunt and a 32-yard field goal from Chad Christen midway through the fourth quarter. But on the Huskies’ next drive, Desmond Bozeman returned a Whitmer fumble 53 yards for a touchdown. It was the Broncos’ first fumble recovery for a touchdown in three years. The score also pushed Western Michigan past the 10,000-point total in team history. Whitmer added a seven-yard TD pass to Davis with 54 seconds to play, but the Broncos recovered the onside kick. Antoin Scriven scored from one yard out early in the second quarter to cap an 88-yard drive and give Western Michigan a 10-0 lead. It marked his ninth career touchdown, all on one-yard runs. The Broncos followed that with a 36-yard drive capped by Dareyon Chance’s nine-yard run for a 17-point lead. Chance led Western Michigan with 66 yards rushing. The Huskies finally got on the scoreboard with 2:36 left in the first half on Whitmer’s 9-yard pass to redshirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin. Donald Celiscar’s interception at the three-yard line stopped a UConn drive midway in the first quarter. UConn had a 425-330 advantage in total yards. This marked the first appearance at Western Michigan for a BIG EAST opponent. The start of the game was delayed by a half-hour because of lightning storms in the area.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer, who completed passes to eight different receivers, threw for 227 yards and another score as UConn opened up a 24-7 lead in the third quarter and held on to win. Buffalo, which was playing without injured running back Branden Oliver, had the ball with a chance to tie late in the game, but failed to convert on fourth down at its own 39 yard line. Quarterback Alex Zordich threw for 220 yards and ran for 76 to lead the Bulls. UConn improved to 2-1 this season against the Mid-American conference. The Huskies beat Massachusetts in their season opener, but lost last week at Western Michigan. McCombs, UConn’s 166-pound tailback was the Huskies workhorse, carrying the ball 29 times for 97 yards. His two-yard fourth-down touchdown run gave the Huskies a 24-7 lead with just over five minutes left in the third quarter. But Buffalo went into its bag of tricks to pull within 24-14. Zordich completed a four-yard pass to Alex Neutz in the right flat, who then pitched the ball to running back Brandon Murie. He raced down the right sideline, breaking a Byron Jones’ tackle on the way to a 50-yard touchdown. The Bulls got within a touchdown on a 44-yard field goal by Patrick Clarke with 2:23 left after a 43 yard pass from Zordich to Neutz. UConn redshirt sophomore wide receiver Geremy Davis recovered the onside kick, but UConn punted it away three plays later giving Buffalo one more chance to tie. The Bulls took the ball at their own 20 and managed one first down. But Zordich was stuffed by redshirt sophomore linebacker Yawin Smallwood after a two-yard gain on a fourth-and-four from the 39, and the Huskies ran out the clock. Connecticut had big plays on back-to-back drives in the first half to take a 17-7 lead. Tight end Ryan Griffin’s 36-yard catch and run over the middle on the first play of the second quarter capped a 10-play 92-yard drive that gave the Huskies a 10-7 lead. The Huskies then went 75 yards in five plays the next time they had the ball. Hyppolite, who had just four carries coming into the game, took a pitchout on his fifth and went 50 yards off the right side for the Huskies second touchdown. Connecticut moved the ball well from the opening kickoff. A 24-yard pass from Whitmer to senior wide receiver Nick Williams set up a 29-yard field goal by redshirt senior Chad Christen that gave the Huskies a 3-0 lead. Buffalo responded with a 10 play, 75-yard drive that included a 30yard screen pass to Devin Campbell on a fourth down that set up Murie’s 4-yard touchdown run. The Bulls special teams then stepped up, executing a successful onside kick, before the offense stalled. UConn came in ranked fifth in the nation against the rush, allowing just 51 yards per game, but gave up 141 to the Bulls. Buffalo came into the game giving up 34 points a game.

football team by a 17-14 score before a Homecoming crowd of 37,279 at Rentschler Field. Temple senior running back Montel Harris, a transfer from Boston College, ran 30 times for 142 yards and a touchdown for the Owls, who improve to 3-2 overall and 2-0 in the BIG EAST. UConn is 3-4 overall and 0-2 in the BIG EAST and was held to just two first-quarter touchdowns. UConn redshirt junior kicker Chad Christen missed four field goal attempts, including a 28-yarder on UConn’s overtime possession. Husky redshirt sophomore Chandler Whitmer threw for 293 yards and both of UConn’s scores and redshirt freshman running back Max DeLorenzo had 91 yards rushing for the Huskies in his first career start. Temple trailed until sophomore Jalen Fitzpatrick caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Chris Coyer with 19 seconds in regulation. The Owls have won two consecutive BIG EAST games for the first time in the program’s history. The touchdown was set up by a 33-yard catch on the left sideline by junior Deon Miller on a third-and-13 from the UConn 47, which followed a 13-yard catch by Harris on a fourth down that moved the ball into UConn territory. Temple had failed on fourth down on two other fourth-quarter drives. Christen had a chance to secure the win for UConn, but his 45-yard field-goal attempt with just under three minutes to play was blocked. He had missed earlier from 38 and 42 yards. Whitmer completed 10 of his first 12 passes, including a 15-yard strike over the middle to Mike Smith for a touchdown that gave the Huskies a 7-0 lead. On his next drive, he found redshirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin over the middle for a 42-yard score. Whitmer completed 22 of 39 passes for 293 yards and no interceptions. He had thrown four interceptions at Rutgers and came in with 10 on the season and just four touchdown passes. Coyer, who threw for just 132 yards, also ran for 51 for the Owls. The Huskies kept Temple pinned in its own territory for most of the first half. The Owls managed just eight yards and one first down on their first four possessions. But they had 113 on their next two. Harris broke a 37-yard run and a 24-yarder for a touchdown to cut the deficit to 14-7. The Owls were driving again before Harris was stripped of the ball by linebacker redshirt sophomore Yawin Smallwood at Connecticut’s 26-yard line. Both teams played without their top running backs. Temple’s Matt Brown, suffered an ankle injury last week, and UConn redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs sprained his wrist. Without McCombs, the Huskies managed just 88 rushing yards. Harris ran for 133 yards in the Owls’ win last week over South Florida. The win gave Temple coach Steve Addazio a victory over his mentor. UConn’s Paul Pasqualoni was the head coach at Western Connecticut and hired Addazio to his first assistant coaching job there in 1985. The win gave Temple its first road win of the season. The Huskies came in ranked sixth in the nation in total defense, giving up just over 82 yards per game on the ground.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Univeristy of Connecticut football team fell 40-10 at Syracuse Friday night before a crowd of 36,715 at the Carrier Dome. UConn redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer had a solid game as he threw for 291 yards and a touchdown. Syracuse’s Jerome Smith finished with a career-high 133 yards rushing on 19 carries, SU quarterback Ryan Nassib was 14 of 20 for 251 yards passing and Ross Krautman kicked four field goals for the Orange. The Orange focused during practice this week on creating turnovers and the hard work paid off in the second quarter. Orange free safety Durell Eskridge blitzed, forcing a fumble by Whitmer, and Cameron Lynch recovered for the Orange near midfield. It was the 17th turnover of the season for the Huskies and the Orange capitalized. Nassib converted two critical third-down passes to keep the ensuing drive alive, hitting tight end Beckett Wales for 18 yards over the middle and Lemon for 17 yards in traffic. That set up a first-and-goal at the 10, and Adonis Ameen-Moore scored on fourth-and-inches for a 13-3 lead midway through the second quarter. The Huskies finally got on track just before halftime. Whitmer hit senior wide receiver Michael Smith for 18 yards on a slant and followed with a 23-yard completion to redshirt sophomore wide receiver Shakim Phillips After a pass-interference call against the Orange, Whitmer ran right, then turned and hit red shirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin all alone on the left side for a 32-yard score to make it 13-10 with 3:39 left. Undaunted, Syracuse drove 77 yards for another touchdown, keyed by Lemon’s brilliant 41-yard catch and run to the UConn 2. Nassib then rolled right and hit Wales for a 3-yard score and a 20-10 halftime lead. Syracuse put the game out of reach in the third. After Lemon’s 68-yard reception put the ball at the 2, Prince-Tyson Gulley scored on a 3-yard run. Krautman kicked a 42-yard field goal, his third of the game, for a 30-10 lead midway through the period, and Lemon capped his brilliant night with an 11-yard reception over the middle with 2 minutes left in the period.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - Redshirt sophomore running back Lyle McCombs ran for 120 yards and a touchdown as the University of Connecticut football team beat Pittsburgh 24-17 on Friday night before a crowd of 33,503 at Rentschler Field. Sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer threw for 213 yards and a score for the Huskies. UConn is now 4-6 overall and 1-4 in the BIG EAST while Pittsburgh is also 4-6 and 1-4. Senior Nick Williams returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown. Tino Sunseri threw for 302 yards and two touchdowns for Pitt, which fell short in its attempt to overcome a 24-0 halftime deficit. The Panthers, like UConn, must now win out to become bowl eligible. McCombs, who ran for more than 1,100 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman, had just 547 yards and four scores coming into the game. He carried the ball 29 times in this one. The Huskies held Pitt running back Ray Graham to 41 yards on 15 carries after he rushed for 172 against Notre Dame a week ago in an overtime loss. UConn scored on its first possession when Whitmer hit redshirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin with a four-yard pass to cap an 11-play, 75yard march. A staunch UConn defense, ranked ninth nationally, forced Pitt to punt on its first possession, setting the tone for the rest of the half. UConn extended the lead to 10-0 a little over three minutes later on a 29-yard field by redshirt junior Chad Christen. The Huskies opened a 17-0 lead on Williams’ punt return midway through the second quarter. McCombs made it 24-0 on a two-yard plunge, giving the Huskies their first rushing touchdown since a Sept. 29 win over Buffalo. While the UConn offense rolled in the first half, the Huskies’ defense, led by redshirt senior linebacker Sio Moore pressured Sunseri throughout the first 30 and blanketed the Pitt receivers, forcing Sunseri to scramble or throw out of bounds. It also didn’t help that several of Sunseri’s passes were dropped. The Panthers didn’t score until Kevin Harper’s 42-yard field goal in the third quarter. Harper’s 44-yard attempt in the first half hit the right upright. Pittsburgh opened the fourth quarter by going 72 yards in just six plays. Back-to-back passes from Sunseri to Devin Street picked up 46 yards and the Pitt quarterback then found Drew Carswell in the left flat for an 11-yard touchdown strike. UConn had a chance to put the game away after a 44-yard run set the Huskies up at the Pittsburgh 14, but Whitmer threw an interception in the end zone to end the threat. Sunseri took over and drove the Panthers 80 yards in just over two minutes, capped by an 18-yard touchdown pass to Mike Shanahan with 2:46 left. The Panthers never got the ball back as Whitmer hit redshirt sophomore Shakim Phillips for a key 17-yard completion on a thirdand-9 on UConn’s next drive and the Huskies ran out the clock.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - University of Connecticut redshirt senior cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson knew the ball would eventually come his way.
