THE GAME UCONN VS. USF HISTORY Saturday’s game is the 11th meeting between UConn and South Florida and the series is tied 5-5 – with the home team winning every game except a UConn win at USF in 2010. UConn and USF have met each year since 2005 as conference foes and the Huskies lead that series 5-3. Since becoming conference mates, the home team has won each game in the UConn-USF series except for a 2010 UConn win at USF – a game which clinched the Huskies’ first-ever trip to a Bowl Championship Series Bowl. Last season, USF defeated UConn by a 13-6 score at Raymond James Stadium on November 2, 2012. USF QB B.J. Daniels had a five-yard rush for a TD late in the first quarter to complete an eight-play, 80-yard drive for the only TD of the game as both teams added a pair of field goals. Daniels, who left the game in the fourth quarter with an injury, was 19 for 29 in the air with one INT for 199 yards and rushed for 23 yards. UConn QB Chandler Whitmer was 24 of 38 for 284 yards with 2 INT. Lyle McCombs rushed for 47 yards. UConn had 327 yards of total offense in the game while USF had 283. In the last game in the series at Rentschler Field, UConn topped USF by a 1610 score at Rentschler Field on October 15. McCombs rushed for 130 yards in that game and Dave Teggart hit on three field goals. The Huskies did not have an offensive TD in the game. Cornerback Byron Jones returned a fumble 10yards for a third quarter touchdown for UConn. Teggart was the dramatic hero in both the 2009 and ’10 games with the Bulls for the Huskies. On Dec. 4, 2010 at Raymond James Stadium, Teggart kicked a then career-long 52-yard field goal with 17 seconds left to play to lift UConn to a 19-16 win and clinch the Huskies first-ever appearance in a BCS game. UConn led at the half 10-3 in 2010, scoring the only touchdown of the first half on a 55-yard interception return by Lawrence Wilson. The Huskies led 16-6 with 13:39 left to go on a 50-yard Teggart FG, but the Bulls responded with 10 points in a little over seven minutes to tie the game at 16-16. Jordan Todman had 93 yards of rushing for UConn and Zach Frazer was 13 of 29 for 112 yards in the game. Teggart had a total of four field goals. In 2009, Teggart kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Huskies a 29-27 win at Rentschler Field on a snowy Dec. 5. On Oct. 27, 2007 at Rentschler Field, UConn topped the Bulls by a 22-15 score. USF was ranked 11th in the country at the time of the game and it marked UConn’s first win over an Associated Press ranked team at the time of the game. The win propelled UConn

2013 University of Connecticut Football Game Notes

October 12, 2013 • vs. USF to a #16 national ranking the following week -- the first in UConn history. The teams met for the first time on Oct. 28, 2000 at Memorial Stadium in Storrs with the Bulls taking a 21-13 victory. UConn returned the trip on Oct. 13, 2001 and faced the Bulls at Raymond James Stadium during USF’s inaugural I-A season. The Huskies, still transitioning to I-A, fell 40-21. UCONN-USF CONNECTIONS The UConn roster has nine players from Florida on it – redshirt sophomore Tyree Clark (Tampa), redshirt freshman John Green (Miami), freshman Javon Hadley (Miami), redshirt freshman Ellis Marder (Windermere), redshirt junior Bryan Paull (Parkland), sophomore Bobby Puyol (North Palm Beach), freshman Kyle Schafenacker (Cooper City), redshirt sophomore Brandon Steg (Coral Springs) and redshirt freshman Jhavon Wiliams (Wellington). The USF roster, dominated by Florida players, has one Connecticut connection—sophomore WR and Central Connecticut transfer Jimel Atkins, who is a Jacksonville native. The two head coaches, UConn’s T.J. Weist and USF’s Willie Taggart, were members of the same coaching staff at Western Kentucky from 2001-06. At various times while on staff together, Taggart was the quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach while Weist handled the wide receivers and was the offensive coordinator for the Hilltoppers.

HUSKIES HAVE BEEN BOWL ELIGIBLE The UConn football team has been bowl eligible four times in the past six years and in six of the past ten. The 2010 UConn football team won the BIG EAST Championship and advanced to play in the school’s first-ever BCS game -- the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. UConn lost to Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl and it defeated South Carolina by a 20-7 score in the 2010 Papajohns.com Bowl. The Huskies also went to the International Bowl in 2009 and defeated Buffalo. In 2007, UConn was 9-3 in the regular season and went on to the Meineke Car Care Bowl. In 2004, the Huskies went 7-4 in the regular season and won the Motor City Bowl. In 2003, UConn was 9-3, but did not go to a bowl because of its independent status.

Tackles Yawin Smallwood, 2nd at 13.8 per game (1st American) HUSKIES AND NATIONAL POLLS Connecticut has been ranked in the Associated Press poll for six weeks during its FBS history, four weeks in the USA Today poll and seven weeks in the BCS rankings. UConn was No. 25 on Dec. 5, 2010, in its only ranking of that year. The Huskies were No. 16 on Oct. 28, 2007 and Nov. 4, 2007, No. 25 on Nov. 11, 2007, No. 20 on Nov. 18, 2007 and No. 24 on Sept. 28, 2008. UCONN VS. RANKED TEAMS The Sept. 21 game vs. Michigan was the 21st time in school history that the Huskies faced a team ranked in the Associated Press poll at the time of the game. UConn has a 2-19 record in those games with the two wins coming vs. No. 19 Louisville on November 24, 2012 by a 23-20 score in triple overtime and on Oct. 27, 2007 with a 22-15 win over No. 11 USF. UConn first played a ranked team in the 2001 season opener at No. 9 Virginia Tech. UConn has played the country’s top ranked team once when it traveled to Miami on Oct. 5, 2002. UCONN FOOTBALL A LEADER IN ACADEMICS The UConn football program continues to be a leader in terms of academic performance by its student-athletes. UConn was the top team in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of both October 2008 and ’09 among Big East league schools. In 2010, the Huskies GSR was third in the Big East and within four points of the second place team in 2011, was tied for fourth in the league, but within four points of the two schools that were tied for second. UConn’s 75 percent GSR mark released in 2012 was well ahead of the national GSR for FBS teams, which was 67 percent. The UConn football program also had the highest NCAA GSR for African-American student-athletes among all state universities that participated in a bowl game in 2008. In five of the past seven years, including 2007, ‘08 and ‘09, UConn was recognized by the American Football Coaches Association for its high graduation rate. 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). UConn’s 2013 APR score of 958 was 11 points higher than the national average of public institutions. HUSKIES VS. NON-CONFERENCE FOES SINCE 2002 Connecticut boasts a 45-26 record against non-conference

opponents in the regular season since making the move to the FBS in 2002. The Huskies have won 20 of their last 32 regular season nonleague games overall with the only blemishes coming via a onepoint loss at Virginia (17-16) in 2007, losses to North Carolina in 2008 and ‘09, Michigan and Temple in ’10, Vanderbilt, Iowa State and Western Michigan in ’11, North Carolina State and Western Michigan in ’12 and Towson, Maryland, Michigan and Buffalo in ’13. UConn has posted the following records in non-conference regular season games: 6-6 (2002), 9-3 (2003), 4-1 (2004), 3-1 (2005), 3-2 (2006), 4-1 (2007), 4-1 (2008), 4-1 (2009), 3-2 (2010), 2-3 (2011), 3-2 (2012) and 0-4 (2013). HUSKIES ON THE REBOUND UConn is 34-24 in games following a loss since Oct. 26, 2002. The Huskies lost their 2012 season finale vs. Cincinnati and the record includes games over two seasons with the losses to Towson, Maryland, Michigan and now Buffalo.

OFFENSE NOTES BOYLE GETS THE STARTING NOD UConn freshman quarterback Tim Boyle (Middlefield, Conn.) is scheduled to make his first career start and get his first career playing time on Saturday against USF. Boyle was named Connecticut High School Coaches’ Association Player of the Year as a senior in 2012 at Xavier High School in Middletown. Boyle becomes the first true freshman to start a game for UConn at quarterback since Shelton native Dan Orlovsky did on October 6, 2001 – a 19-0 win over Eastern Michigan. Orlovsky started 43 consecutive games over three-plus seasons, concluding his career with a win in the Huskies’ first-ever bowl appearance – the 2004 Motor City Bowl. Boyle was named first team All-State by the New Haven Register and All-Hartford Courant and was named All-Southern Connecticut Conference as a senior. He threw for nearly 2,500 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior as team won state Class LL championship for the third-straight season – a 48-14 win over Norwich Free Academy at Rentschler Field. Boyle was named one of three finalists for the Walter Camp Football Foundation Connecticut Player of the Year Award along with fellow UConn freshman FB Matt Walsh (Madison, Conn.). As a junior, Boyle shared starting duties and threw for 850 yards and 15 TDs in six games. On June 29 at Rentschler Field, Boyle played in the Hall of Fame Classic Military Bowl – a Connecticut all-star game – and had two TD passes leading his team to a 15-14 win. He was 12 of 24 in the air for 134 yards. WHITMER AT BACKUP UConn junior quarterback Chandler Whitmer (Newnan, Ga.) started the last 15 games for the Huskies at quarterback dating back to the start of the 2012 season. His 2,503 yards of total offense last year was eighth in school single-season history while his 208 completions was seventh. Whitmer’s 2,664 passing yards was fifth. Here is the statement that head coach T.J. Weist released to explain the quarterback change and how Whitmer has handled himself since coming to UConn. “Chandler Whitmer has exhibited outstanding character and integrity since the day I stepped on to this campus and even be-

2013 University of Connecticut Football Game Notes

October 12, 2013 • vs. USF fore I got here. He has worked extremely hard, put in a lot of hours at his craft, and done everything in his power to help this team be successful. We all know the QB takes an unfair amount of criticism when a team loses. To Chandler’s credit he has handled the criticism with class and dignity. He has done everything in his power to improve and do the best job possible. We haven’t always put him in the best position to be successful, having had multiple injuries at the wide receiver and the offensive line positions and to his credit he has not complained. He’s gone out and battled every game for this team. “That being said, we feel like at this time we need to give Tim a chance to play and see if he can provide a spark for our team. He has been working hard and deserves an opportunity to show what he can do. Chandler is still a big factor and leader on this team and we know that he will continue to prepare as if he’s the starter and when his number is called he will be ready to help this team in whatever capacity is needed. He’s been a great mentor to Tim up to this point and given his integrity and character we know he will continue to do whatever it takes to help Tim and this team be successful.” Whitmer enrolled at Connecticut for the spring 2012 semester and participated in spring practice. 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. McCOMBS A DOAK WALKER CANDIDATE UConn junior running back Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) was named to the preseason candidate list for the 2013 Doak Walker Award, which is given to the nation’s top college running back each year by the PwC SMU Athletic Forum. He led UConn in rushing in the opening game vs. Towson with 76 yards on 17 carries. McCombs has led UConn in rushing the past two seasons with 1,151 yards in 2011 and was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America and a Second Team All-BIG EAST pick. He was the secondleading freshman rusher in the country in ‘11. Last year, he led the Huskies with 860 yards on 243 carries. He is currently the seventh-leading rusher in school history with 2,211 yards while Vinny Clements is sixth with 2,327 from 1968-70. McCombs is third in career carries at UConn with 575 and has two of the top six single-season marks in rushing carries. McCombs has nine 100-yard rushing games over the past two-plus seasons. DAVIS TOPS 100, SHAK SETS RECEIVING YARDAGE MILESTONES UConn redshirt junior Geremy Davis (Lawrenceville, Ga.) is the leading receiver on the team with 15 receptions for 308 – having five receptions in each of the first two games, four receptions for 52 yards vs. Michigan and five for 102 yards against Buffalo. He now has two 100-yard receiving games this season (also had 100 vs. Towson). He now has three 100-yard receiving games as he had 123 vs. Western Michigan in 2012. UConn redshirt junior Shakim Phillips (Paterson, N.J.) is second with 15 receptions for 225 yards and three TDs this season despite missing the past two games with a hamstring injury. Philips had ten receptions for 178 yards and one TD vs. Maryland on Sept. 14, which was a career-high in each category. The 178 yards of receiving was the most for a Husky in UConn’s FBS era (since 2002). It marked the first time a Husky receiver had more than 150 yards in one game since Marcus Easley had 157 against West Virginia on Oct. 24, 2009. It was the most receiving yards in a single-game for a Husky since Dak Newton had 222 vs. Villanova on Oct. 5, 1996.

October 12, 2013 • vs. USF last season in 2012. UConn was ninth in total defense (309.92 yards per game), seventh in rushing defense (97.92 yards per game), 15th in tackles for loss (7.33 per game), 18th in sacks (2.75 per game), 36th in pass defense (212.00 yards per game) and 19th in scoring defense (19.83 points per game). UConn leads the BIG EAST in total defense, rushing defense, pass defense and sacks. UConn gave up just 36 points in the first quarter of games last year (field goal by WMU, TD vs. Buffalo, two FG by Rutgers, two FG by Syracuse. TD by USF, TD by Cincinnati) and gave up only 33 first quarter first downs. The Huskies have now given up just 43 points in the past 13 games in the first quarter, including the Towson and Maryland games this year. SMALLWOOD SECOND IN COUNTRY IN TACKLES UConn junior linebacker Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) has led UConn in tackles in each of the Huskies first four games with 16 against Towson, 14 against Maryland, 13 vs. Michigan and 12 vs. Buffalo. He is ranked second in the country in tackles per game at 13.8 and leads the American. Smallwood was named to the American Weekly Honor roll for his performance vs. Michigan. He was named the National Defensive Player of the Week by CBSSports.com for his performance vs. the Wolverines. Smallwood was named to virtually every defensive award preseason Watch List for the 2013 season. He was named to the lists for the: Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Bednarik Award -- both are given to the top defensive player in the country – 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 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 made two in the Buffalo game (33 and 37 yards) before having a 48-yarder blocked in the third quarter. 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

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 USF game features Scott Lutrus against USF in 2007, UConn’s first win over a ranked opponent. 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.

AMHERST, N.Y. -- Buffalo quarterback Joe Licata was 10 for 19 in the air with three TD passes for 177 yards as the Bulls defeated the University of Connecticut football team by a 41-12 score before a crowd of 20,952 at UB Stadium. The win was the first for Buffalo over UConn since 2001 as the Bulls up their record to 2-2 and the Huskies are 0-4. UConn is 0-4 for the first time since 1991. UConn turned the ball over five times while Buffalo scored through the air, on the ground and on defense in building a 28-12 halftime lead. They blocked a field goal and scored 17 points off Connecticut turnovers. Licata passed for a career-high three touchdowns, connecting with different receivers on each score. Licata found tight end Mason Schreck for a five-yard touchdown in the first quarter, later adding a 22-yard touchdown to Alex Neutz and a 36-yard score to Fred Lee. The Bulls were aided by the return of starting running back Branden Oliver, who had 110 total yards including 90 yards rushing and a touchdown. UConn junior quarterback Chandler Whitmer (Newnan, Ga.) turned the ball over four times, including a second-quarter interception that Najja Johnson returned 33-yards for a Bulls touchdown. UConn redshirt freshman quarterback Casey Cochran (Monroe, Conn.) made his collegiate debut in the fourth quarter as he was two-for-five in the air for 11 yards and an interception. Husky senior kicker Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) connected on field goals of 33 and 37 yards, but had a 48-yard attempt blocked in the second quarter. Patrick Clarke hit field goals of 49 and 50 yards for Buffalo. UConn junior wide receiver Geremy Davis (Lawrenceville, Ga.) was a bright spot for the Huskies, with five catches for 102 yards. The Huskies continue to have trouble on the ground as they entered the game 121st in rushing offense. They finished the game with 27 yards rushing on 39 attempts. The win was Buffalo’s first against a BCS school since Sept. 7, 2002, when they beat Rutgers.
