F

or the first time in the history of the Univeristy of Connecticut football program, four former Huskies played in the same NFL game. It took place Sunday, Dec. 3, as the New England Patriots topped the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 31-24. Offensive lineman Donald Thomas, a native of West Haven, Conn., suited up for the Patriots. He is in his fourth season in the NFL and his first season with the Patriots. Quarterback Dan Orlovsky, a Shelton, Conn., native, was the starting quarterback for the Colts and was 30 of 37 in the air for 353 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Donald Brown, who was UConn’s first-ever NFL first round draft pick in 2010, was the leading rusher for the Colts with 14 carries for 41 yards and a TD. Linebacker Scott Lutrus, a Brookfield, Conn., native, suited up for his first NFL game on an active roster, and made two tackles. Thomas and his Patriots then went on to win the AFC Championship and play in Super Bowl XLVI.

The Connecticut Football

PHILOSOPHY Academics Are The Priority

Community Service

Head coach Paul Pasqualoni and his staff emphasizes academics from the time that the recruiting process begins until a studentathlete has earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut…and the numbers prove this point. UConn was the top BIG EAST team in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate (GSR) survey in two of the past four seasons. UConn’s 2011 GSR score was eight points over the national average for FBS teams. In the latest NCAA Academic Performance Rate (APR) results, UConn scored an impressive 963 over a four-year period, which was 11 points over the national average for FBS teams and 20 points over the average for national public universities. The UConn football program had the third-highest GSR for the more than 50 public universities that played in a bowl game following the 2009 season. Husky football student-athletes use the Herb and Marcia Dunn Academic Support Center in The Burton Family Football Complex to assist in their academic endeavors.

Community service is an integral part of the UConn football experience. Husky football student-athletes perform numerous hours of community service throughout the year by visiting children at local schools, hospitals and other activities. One of the key community service activities of the UConn football team is service at East Hartford Middle School. The UConn football program has adopted the school and student-athletes make frequent visits to the school to provide mentoring and inspiration both in academics and athletics.

BIG EAST Champions Each and every year, the Connecticut football team expects to be a factor in the race for the BIG EAST Championship. That goal came to fruition in 2007 as the Huskies won the league title in just their fourth year as a member of the conference. UConn won its second BIG EAST title in four years in 2011.

Bowl Games Connecticut has now played in a bowl game in five of the past eight seasons, including four of the past five seasons, and has picked up victories in three of them. UConn made history in the 2010 season as it advanced to the Bowl Championship Series in its brief FBS history and played in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Bowl-eligibility is one of the goals of the Connecticut football program every year and Husky fans have helped develop UConn’s reputation into a school that “travels well”.

Connecting With The Fans Husky fans have numerous opportunities to meet and greet the Husky coaching staff and players during the calendar year. Before each home game, UConn fans are encouraged to come to the “Husky Walk” as the team gets off the team buses and makes its way through a sea of Blue and White to their locker room. UConn fans are also invited to sing the “UConn Husky” fight song at the end of each home game at Rentschler Field. In February, all season tickets holders and UConn Club members are invited to a “Signing Night Reception”, as head coach Paul Pasqualoni and his staff gives a video presentation on the latest crop of National Letter of


Staying In Touch With Alumni The UConn football alumni are the roots of the excellence of the Husky program. UConn football alumni are more active and involved in the program than ever. For the past six seasons, former UConn head coaches and alumni have served as honorary coaches for the Blue-White Spring Football Game. In an effort to help members of UConn’s football team enhance their prospects for employment following college, the UConn football program sponsors a Career Information Fair twice a year. Football alumni are also invited to the field before home games to form a tunnel as the current Huskies come running out – a gesture that bonds generations of Husky players.

Strength and Conditioning Intent signees. Several current Huskies attend that event and sign autographs during a reception. UConn players meet fans for autographs following the Blue-White Spring Football Game and after an open practice that is held each preseason.

Facilities The State of Connecticut and the University of Connecticut have committed the finest facilities in the nation to the Husky program. UConn plays its home games in the ultra-modern Rentschler Field, which opened in 2003 and remains one of the newest stadiums used by a team in Bowl Championship Series Conference. The team also enjoys the modern amenities of The Burton Family Football Complex and the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center in Storrs. Both of these facilities opened in 2006 and provide Husky football players with a campus home that provides for all their needs.

National Leaders Running back Donald Brown became UConn’s first NCAA Statistical Leader in 2009 as he led the country in rushing yards. In 2010, current Husky Nick Williams led the country kickoff returns and last season, current Husky Trevardo Wiliams was second in the country in sacks. The Huskies became eligible for the FBS Statistics in 2002 and have finished in the top 20 for total offense twice (2003 and ’04) and three times on defense (2002, ’05 and ’08).

Professional Football Former UConn players are in the National Football League in numbers that are unprecedented in school history. UConn had 11 players on active NFL rosters in 2009 – the most ever in school history – and ten in 2011. In the 2009 NFL Draft, UConn had four selections in the first two rounds – including the Huskies’ first-ever First Round Draft Pick in Donald Brown, who went to the Indianapolis Colts and then played in the Super Bowl in his rookie campaign. UConn has had 11 players drafted in the past four years with numerous free agent signees and Canadian Football League performers.

The Rentschler Field Advantage The UConn football team takes great pride in its winning percentage at Rentschler Field. Since the stadium opened, UConn has won over threequarters of the games played there and has posted victories over teams from the BIG EAST, SEC, ACC, Big Ten and Big XII at Rentschler Field. Husky fans have responded with a 96 percent capacity mark since the stadium opened. UConn has posted undefeated records at Rentschler Field in two seasons – both of them in years that the Huskies won BIG EAST Championships, 2007 and 2010.

The strength and conditioning program for UConn football players is among the most innovative in the nation and is coordinated by Jerry Martin – the school’s Strength and Conditioning Coordinator. Martin was the National Strength Coach of the Year in both 1994 and 2001. Husky players use the two-level, 18,000-square foot Polo Family Strength Center in the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center.

The Schedule Connecticut plays in the highly-competitive BIG EAST Conference, whose champion receives an automatic BCS berth at the end of the year. The BIG EAST will grow into the country’s only four-time zone conference over the next several seasons as teams ranging from national powerhouse Boise State to tradition-filled Navy joined the league. UConn schedules a competitive slate of non-conference games each season against a variety of opponents. UConn traveled to Notre Dame in 2009 and posted a double-overtime win at Notre Dame Stadium. The Huskies opened the 2010 season at Michigan Stadium against the Wolverines before 113,090 fans – the largest crowd in the history of modern college football at the time of the game. The Wolverines return the trip to Rentschler Field in 2013. The Huskies will play a home-and-home series with Tennessee beginning in 2015 with the Volunteers coming to Rentschler Field with a return trip to Knoxville in 2016. Other upcoming non-conference opponents coming to Rentschler Field include North Carolina State (2012), Maryland (2014) and Virginia (2016).

RENTSCHLER FIELD

Home of UConn Football Enters Its Tenth Season

The 2012 season will mark the tenth season of play at Rentschler Field – which remains one of the newest and most modern college football stadiums in the BCS. UConn has posted a 43-15 record at Rentschler Field, including undefeated seasons in the Huskies’ BIG EAST Championship seasons of 2007 and 2011. In nine seasons of play, the UConn football team has welcomed over two million fans to Rentschler Field.

“On Sept. 16, 2011, Shane Buzzell of Manchester, Conn., became the 2,000,000th fan to attend a game at Rentschler Field.”


Football Saturdays have become an important part of the social scene in Connecticut as tailgating begins four hours before kickoff and a FanFest is held before each game. The “Husky Walk” is held about two-and-a-half hours before each game as fans are able to greet the team as it arrives at the stadium. Student support is a tremendous asset to UConn football as the “Dog Pound” provides vocal inspiration for the Huskies.


The University of Connecticut ranks UConn among the top 20 public universities in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. UConn is the only public university in New England with its own schools of law, medicine, dental medicine, and social work. The University has been elected to membership in Universitas 21, a preeminent international network of leading research-intensive universities in 15 countries.

This is

UCONN

The University grants seven undergraduate degrees and offers more than 100 majors. The University grants 17 graduate degrees in more than 85 fields of study, and provides graduate professional programs in business, dental medicine, law, medicine, pharmacy and social work.


More than 30,000 students enrolled, representing nearly every state in the nation and more than 100 countries. Average SAT scores for incoming freshmen at Storrs are up over 100 points since 1996 and are now 1216 (critical reading and math only). The 440 students UConn welcomed into its Honors Program in 2011 had an average SAT score of more than 1400 and minority students make up 28% of the 2011 incoming undergraduate class. Since 1995, 1,394 valedictorians and salutatorians have enrolled at all campuses. In fall 2011, 43 percent of freshmen entering the Storrs campus were ranked in the top 10 percent of their high school class and 82 percent were ranked in the top 25 percent of their class.

UConn continues to renew, rebuild and enhance our campuses through an unprecedented $2.8 billion, 20-year investment in the University’s infrastructure. UCONN 2000 has been the most ambitious publicly financed university building program in the country. Now in its 17th year, UCONN 2000 has invigorated the University’s living and learning environments, helped advance faculty research, and stimulated public and private investment.

The

BURTON FAMILY T

he University of Connecticut football team enjoys the finest on-campus football facilities in the country – thanks in large part to the building of The Burton Family Football Complex.

Football Complex

The Burton Family Football Complex serves as the on-campus home of UConn football and complements Rentschler Field in East Hartford. The lead gift for the facility was a $2.5 million contribution by Robert G. Burton. Burton’s tremendously successful business career has included leadership in the printing and publishing industry, and his current role as Chairman and CEO of Cenveo, the third largest publicly traded printing company in the world, which is headquartered in Stamford, Conn.


Burton’s son, Michael, was the captain of the 1999 Husky football team. Burton has also donated in excess of $1 million to establish two endowed scholarships for UConn student-athletes. Construction on the facility began in the fall of 2004 and the building opened in the summer of 2006. The Burton Football Family Complex houses coaches’ offices and includes an academic resource center, team meeting rooms, a team locker room, a state-of-the-art sports medicine area, video facilities, a team dining hall, a studentathlete lounge and an equipment room. The Burton Family Football Complex is the University’s first project certified as meeting the Leadership in Energy

and Environmental Design (LEED) standards for “green” buildings. LEED designation is a process certifying that a building project meets a wide range of environmentally friendly criteria. This new construction marks the first college or university athletic project in the nation to earn the designation.

Counseling Program for

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETES T he Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes, a unit within the Division of Academic Affairs, is the academic support program for The University of Connecticut’s 650 student-athletes. The primary goal of the program is to assist student-athletes in reaching their educational goals while they compete in intercollegiate athletics. As academic affairs officers, CPIA counselors function as liaisons between the athletic and academic communities. Our counselors work closely with coaches, faculty and a variety of campus resources in order to help facilitate students’ successful transition into college life by instituting academic and social support programs, including but not limited to Counseling, Pre-Advising, Tutorial and Life Skills Programs. The CPIA facilities for football student-athletes are housed in modern facilities in The Burton Family Football Complex and the Herb and Marcia Dunn Academic Support Center The location inside The Burton Family Football Complex ensures maximum use of a student-athlete’s time as they can now perform a number of football-related activities and perform academic work under the same roof.

TUTORING PROGRAM

At the beginning of each semester, student-athletes request and are assigned tutors based on their individual needs.  Tutoring is done on an individual basis or in small groups so that each student-athlete can receive the best help available. Our tutorial staff consists of well-trained graduate and undergraduate students who have demonstrated high levels of proficiency in their respective subject areas.

STUDY HALL All freshmen and transfer students as well as some upperclassmen are required to attend study hall ten hours a week. Study hall is an interactive environment where students meet with their tutors and work on their assignments in their respective courses.

WEEKLY ACADEMIC MEETINGS All freshmen and at risk students will meet with their CPIA counselor at least once a week to review their course work, assignments, attendance and tutoring plan.

WEEKLY MEETING WITH COACH PASQUALONI

FRESHMAN SUMMER PROGRAM

UConn football coach Coach Pasqualoni meets with Ellen Tripp, the CPIA Football Program Director, on a weekly basis.  Together they review each student-athlete’s academic progress. This provides valuable information for Coach Pasqualoni and his staff regarding each studentathlete’s academic performance.

The Freshman Student-Athlete Summer Program began in the summer of 2006.  The main goal was to acclimate the students to the University of Connecticut over a seven-week process and allow them to enroll in six credits of coursework which would introduce them to the collegiate academic setting as well as prepare them for their freshman year. The program introduces students to the rigors of university life, helps them develop the discipline and skills required to succeed academically, and provide orientation to the general campus community and facilities. Since writing is imperative to the academic process, CPIA works with the Freshmen English Department, to offer the choice of two writing courses. Students are enrolled in either a four-credit Basic Writing class or a Seminar in Writing through Literature course. They also enroll in a two credit “Transitions into College: Beginning Your Journey”, which specifically deals with the topics of transitioning into the collegiate environment and provides tools for students to discover in order to achieve their goals of academic success and ultimately, graduation from the University of Connecticut.  These courses are the core of the Freshman Summer Program.

LIFE SKILLS UConn football student-athletes can enroll in two Life Skills courses during their freshmen and junior year.  The Freshmen Life Skills course is designed to provide the information, knowledge and confidence, which will enable the student-athlete to feel secure in a new environment and promote a successful transition from high school to college.  The course helps develop a set of adaptive, coping, critical thinking and problem solving skills.  It also acquaints the student-athlete with the resources that are available to balance the myriad of academic and athletic demands and adjust to college life. The primary goal of the Life Skills for Junior Student-Athletes Course is to provide information, techniques and strategies that will help students feel confident while making decisions about their future, postcollegiate lives. The focus of the class is to help students make a successful transition from college to the working world.

LEARNING DISABILITY SERVICES If a student-athlete enrolls at the University of Connecticut and has a diagnosed learning disability, CPIA works with that particular studentathlete, the Learning Disability office and Disability Services to provide the student with the best support possible.

UConn’s Rhema Fuller (center) is joined at the National Football Foundation Awards Dinner in December of 2007 by former Husky head coach and NFF president Bob Casciola, former UConn head coach Randy Edsall and NFF vice chairman and former UConn football coach and athletic director John Toner.

HUSKIES ARE A LEADER IN BIG EAST ACADEMICS The University of Connecticut football program continues to be a leader in the BIG EAST Conference in terms of academic performance by its student-athletes. UConn has been the top team in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rates (GSR) in two of the past four years among BIG EAST schools. 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. UConn’s overall GSR was the third-highest of the more than 50 state universities that participated in a bowl game. In 2012, the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rates (APR) for the UConn football team was an impressive 963. That mark was 11 points above the national average for all FBS teams and 20 points higher than the national average for public institutions.

THE NFL

Former UConn offensive tackle Will Beatty was a second round pick of the New York Giants in 2009 and has played in 34 games with 16 starts over the past three seasons.

The University of Connecticut has a long tradition of players moving on to the National Football League and Husky players are in the league at an all-time high. During the 2011 season, a total of 11 former Huskies appeared on NFL active rosters at one point during the season – which tied a UConn high also reached in 2009. Husky history was made in April of 2009 as four Huskies were selected among the first 63 selections in the NFL Draft and an additional four were picked up as free agent signees. UConn is the only BIG EAST Conference school to have four picks in the first 63 of a single NFL Draft since the league was reformatted in the 2005 season. UConn has had at least one player picked in seven of the past eight NFL Draft and 16 Huskies have been drafted since 2005. In addition to those draft picks, over 20 First and Second Round UConn players have signed NFL free agent contracts during that time period.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING The strength and conditioning program for the University of Connecticut football players is coordinated and directed by UConn’s Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Jerry Martin. The UConn strength and conditioning program benefits all 24 of Connecticut’s intercollegiate teams. Todd Devers is in his second year as an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at UConn and has primary responsibility of working with the UConn football team. Devers comes to Connecticut after being a member of the Dallas Cowboys’ strength and conditioning staff since 2007.

UConn football players enjoy a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility at the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center – which opened in the summer of 2007 – in The Polo Family Strength Center. The two-level strength and conditioning facility is over 18,000 square feet. The main strength area is more than 11,000 square feet and houses the primary exercise units. The balcony itself is more than 7,000 square feet and has a five-lane turf sprint area that is 70 yards long.  The balcony also houses the secondary training equipment, which includes indoor computerized blocking sleds to measure reaction time and force production. Keiser air machines with computer interface measures power output in order to enhance sport performance and to quicken the rehabilitation process.


The balcony also includes a number of aerobic pieces such as treadmills, stationary bikes and spin bikes for conditioning purposes as well as stair climbers and elliptical training equipment. The main strength area has complete Championship Units. Each unit includes a multi-purpose rack, an Olympic platform, a multi-adjustable bench and a multi-use cable column. Each of these units also includes an adjustable dumbbell system ranging from 15 pounds to 105 pounds in 2.5-pound increments. Each Championship Unit encompasses its own Tendo weight lifting analyzer which when attached to the bar, gives peak power, average power and the velocity of the bar and the weight being lifted. With all of this in place, the Mark R. Shenkman Training facility is the most modern, efficient and complete college strength facility in the United States. A unique part of UConn’s off-season training is a team competition that reflects the Bowl Championship Series. When the winter semester begins, 12 team captains are assigned. A draft is then held with six to seven players on each team and there are six teams in each

Blue and White conference. Individuals gain points in the competition for performance in the weight room and for other drills that are conducted during the team training sessions, such as the medicine ball, obstacle course and tire flip races. Academics and obligations in the athletic training room are also taken into account for an individual and their team  point total. As the beginning of spring football approaches, there are bowl games between teams. The top teams in each conference face off in the Rose Bowl while the second place teams face off in the Orange Bowl. The next two teams, regardless of conference, play in the Sugar Bowl and the next two play in the Fiesta Bowl. The goal of the program is to keep a competitive spirit throughout the UConn team during the offseason.


The University of Connecticut Division of Athletics believes that the responsibilities of student-athletes reach beyond classrooms, libraries, fields and courts. Community service is an integral part of the UConn experience as Husky student-athletes contribute countless hours each year to a number of worthy causes. UConn football players perform numerous hours of community service throughout the year by visiting children at local schools, hospitals and other activities. The UConn football team makes

several visits a year to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford. UConn football student-athletes make frequent visits to schools to provide inspiration both in academics and athletics. The UConn Division of Athletics and its community service program “Husky Reach” concluded its fourth year of its reading initiative in the winter of 2011 with the Verplanck Elementary School in Manchester, Conn. Through a generous donation by the SBM Foundation, UConn student-athletes visit Verplanck to participate in a variety of activities aimed at teaching the value of education, sportsmanship, integrity and teamwork.

with Verplanck has served to motivate many of these boys and girls to read more books and appreciate the importance of learning. The “Husky Reach” program is committed to building a “culture of hope” among these young students that they can someday attend college. Once again this year, through an initiative called the “Reading Millionaires Challenge”, the students read a combined one-million minutes of books – and for reaching this goal, they earned the trip to the UConn campus. The SBM Charitable Foundation was established in 2000 by Connecticut Bankshares, the parent company of the former Savings Bank of Manchester. The SBM Charitable Foundation, Inc., is committed to bettering the lives of those who live and work predominately in Hartford, Windham and Tolland counties. Other community service by UConn student-athletes is coordinated through the Student-Athlete Advisory Council. The Council consists of representatives from each one of UConn’s intercollegiate athletic teams and in addition to community service, it promotes fellowship and camaraderie between student-athletes from different sports. The SAAC had another successful year in 2011-12 as it held various “drives” at UConn athletic events that collect gently-used

coats and books, canned goods and other food items that are then distributed to worthy charities. One of these drives annually takes place at a late fall football game, where gently-used coats and other winter wear were collected.

SPORTS MEDICINE

The Department of Sports Medicine in the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics works as an integrated multidisciplinary team whose purpose is to provide the optimal, safe environment for the football student-athletes to train and participate in their sport. The staff takes great pride in the individual attention paid to each student-athlete. They are devoted to preventing injury, rapidly diagnosing and treating injury and maximizing athletic performance. The disciplines of athletic training, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, orthopedic sports medicine, optometry, nutrition, exercise physiology and psychology work in concert to provide comprehensive care. The team is spearheaded by Robert Howard, MA, ATC, the Head Athletic Trainer. Howard is assisted by Luke Ross, MA, ATC, and graduate assistants Michael Sundeen, ATC, and Jun Hashiwaki, ATC. Physician coverage is led by Dr. Jeffrey Anderson, the Director of Sports Medicine, and Team Physician, Dr. Thomas Trojian. The Orthopedic Sports Medicine Specialists for the team include: Dr. Michael Joyce of the Orthopedic Sports Specialists in Glastonbury; Dr.

Robert Arciero, Dr. Thomas DeBerardino, and Dr. Augustus Mazzocca of the New England Musculoskeletal Institute at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington. The Department of Sports Medicine works closely with the Departments of Kinesiology and Nutritional Sciences on the University of Connecticut campus. This affords the student-athletes with the input of several nationally recognized exercise scientists. This cooperation also keeps the sports medicine staff at the cutting edge of developments in the fields of human performance and sports nutrition. Members of the sports medicine staff are actively engaged in research that directly benefits the care of the football student-athletes. UConn football student-athletes enjoy state-of-the-art medical facilities at Rentschler Field and at The Burton Family Football Complex within the Marziali Family Training Room. The Department of Sports Medicine has incorporated the SwimEX technology to develop a 2,300 square-foot hydrotherapy room for rehabilitation and conditioning at The Burton Family Football Complex. As with Rentschler Field, the new sports medicine facility on campus includes onsite X-ray equipment. In addition to providing the finest in medical care for the UConn football program, the Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Connecticut administers to the daily needs of 650 male and female intercollegiate student-athletes, who are in 24 different varsity programs. The Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Connecticut plays a critical role in assuring that all UConn studentathletes have access to the best medical support and health care possible. Through patient care and ongoing research and education, the department continues to provide Husky teams a competitive edge from the medical perspective.


Chef Bob Zannoni and his staff ensure that UConn football players have healthy and delicious meals at The Burton Family Football Complex.

Nutrition is a key part of the plan for success of the UConn football program and is a priority under head coach Paul Pasqualoni. The saying goes that “you eat to compete� and a student-athlete’s daily diet receives exceptionally high care at Connecticut. The comprehensive sports nutrition program is under the direction of Dr. Nancy Rodriguez. Dr. Rodriguez and members of the sport nutrition team provide information regarding nutrition and performance to the UConn football team on a year-round basis and develop nutrition education materials. The Burton Family Football Complex features a full-service kitchen and dining hall for student-athletes.

SPORTS NUTRITION

Dr. Rodriguez works closely with the dining services staff of the Burton Family Football Complex, led by chef Bob Zannoni, to implement performance-based menu options and to set up the training. Menu recommendations have been developed for the team during road trips and performance nutrition directives are in place for competitive performance and optimal recovery. The sports nutrition team meets with freshman upon their arrival to campus in the summer. There is a discussion on the primary considerations for nutrition and performance and then a followup with individual athletes for nutrition workups and individual recommendations. Dr. Rodriguez and her staff attend training tables weekly through the season to discuss nutrition issues with the team and provide quality assurance regarding meals. There is also constant communication with personnel in the area of sports medicine, athletic training and strength and conditioning. Evaluations of and recommendations for nutritional supplements are also provided. Practical and everyday issues and concerns are also dealt with, such as how to make choices in campus dining halls, on road trips and in restaurants. They also provide grocery lists and quick meal and snack options for the players.

ALUMNI

As University of Connecticut football continues to progress as a NCAA FBS team, the roots of the program have not gone forgotten. In fact, UConn football alumni are more active and involved in the program than ever. Andy Baylock, a former UConn assistant football coach and longtime Husky baseball head coach, is the Director of Alumni and Community Affairs for the football team. All former UConn football alumni who are interested in re-connecting with the program should call Baylock at 860-486-2458. For the past six seasons, former UConn head coaches and alumni have served as honorary coaches for the Blue-White Spring Game. Last May, a reunion was held of all former Husky players in the former home of UConn football – Memorial Stadium. The stadium was demolished this past spring to make way for the UConn Basketball Development Center. In an effort to help members of UConn’s football team enhance their prospects for employment following college, the UConn football program sponsors a Career Information Fair twice a year. These events feature many UConn football alumni from a wide range

WALK-ONS With the limited number of scholarships each NCAA member is allowed and the highly competitive nature of high school recruiting around the country, the UConn coaching staff knows it can take no member of the team team for granted. Head coach Paul Pasqualoni highly values walk-ons and the role they can play on the team. UConn senior quarterback Johnny McEntee joined the team as a walk-on in 2008 and saw playing time in just two games from 2009-10. In 2011, the walk-on earned the starting QB spot for the Huskies for all 13 games. Fullback Mark Hinkley played four years at UConn from 2008-11. He only saw action in one game during those three years, but wound up being the Huskies starting fullback in 2012. Current junior punter Cole Wagner joined the team as a walk-on prior to the 2009 season. He became the Husky starter in 2010, earned a scholarship for 2011 and wound up an AllBIG EAST pick for the season. In 2011, Derek Chard was an invaluable member of the Husky squad serving as the team’s deep snapper. UConn converted all of its extra points attempts and 23 of 29 field goals

starting with a Chard snap. Originally a walkon, Chard earned a scholarship for his final two years at UConn. On a national level, perhaps the finest example of a walk-on making good in 2007 occurred at UConn with Donald Thomas of West Haven, Conn. Thomas barely played football in high school but walked onto the team as a sophomore. Thomas developed into a starter at offensive Junior punter Cole Wagner originally joined the Huskies as a guard and earned Allfreshman walk-on and now has been elevated to a scholarship BIG EAST honors in player and has earned All-BIG EAST honors. 2007. Capping a remarkable story, Thomas was drafted by the Miami Dolphins following his senior year and is now a member of the New England Patriots. Marcus Easley originally joined the Huskies as a walk-on in 2006 and then had a break-out senior season in 2009, where he made 48 receptions for eight touchdowns. He was then picked in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. Other walk-on success stories include: • Chris Pavasaris joined the team in 2003 and emerged as the starting punter for the Huskies and earned a scholarship. In 2006, he produced one of the top punting seasons in school history with a 40.1 yard average. An outstanding student, Pavasaris was a candidate for the Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships and earned CoSIDA Academic All-District recognition. • Justin DeRubertis played in 22 games from 2005-06 after starting as a walk-on for the Huskies. • David Sanchez graduated in 2005, earning a football scholarship after walking on as a wide receiver and played in 13 total career games. • Brian Spark was a three-year walk-on member of the Huskies and was rewarded with a scholarship before his senior season of 2004. He closed out his career in fine form with a touchdown reception in UConn’s Motor City Bowl win over Toledo. • Shaun Feldeisen – a captain for the 2003 Huskies, decided to come to UConn without a scholarship. Feldeisen’s chance to play came during the 2001 season as a wide receiver and the following year earned a scholarship. Feldeisen led the Huskies in receiving in ’03 and was also named a second team Academic All-America pick. • C.J. Hessel finished his UConn career in 2001, as joined the team as a walk-on and wound up being voted a team captain.

Walk-on quarterback Johnny McEntee started all 12 games for the Huskies in 2011.

The

BIG EAST

Conference

Entering its 22nd season as a football-playing entity in 2012, the BIG EAST Conference is poised, among a sea of change in the college football world, to continue as one of the nation’s top conferences. By any objective metric, the BIG EAST has been a success story on the football field. The conference has regularly put its teams in position for the Bowl Championship Series National Championship while amassing an impressive head-to-head record against its counterparts. The BIG EAST football membership in 2012 will consist of the University of Cincinnati, the University of Connecticut, the University of Louisville, the University of Pittsburgh, Rutgers University, the University of South Florida, Syracuse University and Temple University. The BIG EAST membership will have a new look in 2013 as the conference becomes the first truly national major college football league. That year, the league will welcome Boise State University, the University of Central Florida, the University of Houston, the University of Memphis, San Diego State University and Southern Methodist University to its football ranks. The U.S. Naval Academy will join the BIG EAST for the 2015 season. Eight of the schools that will comprise the future membership of the BIG EAST finished in the top 25 of the final BCS standings at least once since 2006, with a combined 14 top-25 finishes by those schools in that six-year span. That kind of success underscores the BIG EAST’s recent his-

tory as one of the deepest conferences in college football. Every BIG EAST team won at least five games in 2011 – the first time since 1905 that a major college football conference could make that claim. The BIG EAST is the only Division I conference in which each of its members played in at least one bowl game in the past two seasons. The BIG EAST will likewise be the only league in which each team has at least one bowl win in the last four years. The BIG EAST has always been strategic in its growth, with a goal of showcasing high-quality teams in highly populated markets. The conference’s coming membership changes will further enhance that strategy by placing at least one BIG EAST school in all four time zones across the continental United States. All told, the BIG EAST football membership will be centered in 11 states, 12 of the top 50 Nielsen media markets and six of the top 25 media markets. The conference will have a television households reach of 24.3 million – by far the largest number in college football. The BIG EAST has been a charter member of each of the major bowl agreements with the major conferences, beginning with the Bowl Coalition in 1992, followed by the Bowl Alliance in 1995 and the Bowl Championship Series in 1998. Eight times in the league’s 21 seasons, a BIG EAST squad has played for a claim to the national crown in a postseason game. The 2012 season will mark the fifth year of a six-year arrangement with ESPN that gives the BIG EAST national exposure on ABC television and the ESPN family of networks. ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC will carry a minimum of 19 BIG EAST home games each

season, marking the highest guaranteed total on ESPN and ABC in league history. Championship Week in December includes three BIG EAST games on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. At least four BIG EAST games are featured on ESPN’s Thursday-night package each year. In addition, ESPN Regional Television will continue to produce and distribute its BIG EAST Network Game of the Week package to a nationally syndicated audience, reaching more than 30 million homes. Most of these games also will be available as part of the ESPN GamePlan subscription service. Finally, a minimum of five home games will be carried on ESPNU. Extensive television exposure and the BIG EAST have been synonymous terms. The league established its own regional football television package in 1991 before it had played a game. The BIG EAST Television Network immediately was the largest regional college football network in the country. The BIG EAST has always aligned itself with prestigious bowl games. The league is one of the original founders of the Bowl Championship Series and continues to be one of only six conferences that receives an automatic annual bid in the existing agreement. The BIG EAST Conference champion earns the league’s automatic BCS bid. The BCS – which enters its 15th season in 2012-13 – is a five-game arrangement for postseason college football that is designed to match the two top-rated teams in a national championship game and to create exciting and competitive matchups between eight other highly regarded teams in four other BCS games. If the BIG EAST champion finishes No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings, that team earns a spot in the BCS National Championship Game. Otherwise, the league champion will compete in one of the four remaining BCS bowl games – the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, Discover Orange Bowl, Allstate Sugar Bowl or the Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO. Each bowl hosts two games once every four years - its traditional game plus the National Championship Game approximately one week later. The BIG EAST unveiled an enhanced collection of bowl partnerships beginning in 2010 that matches conference teams against opponents from the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Big 12 Conference, the Southeastern Conference and Conference USA. The Champs Sports Bowl has the first selection of BIG EAST

teams after the conference’s BCS representative is determined. The Atlantic Coast Conference will provide the opposition for the Champs Sports Bowl, which is played in Orlando, Fla. The BIG EAST enters its 11th year as a partner with the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, N.C. Played in Bank of America Stadium, the Belk Bowl will select its BIG EAST participant after the Champs Sports Bowl with the ACC again providing the opponent. The BIG EAST and the Big 12 conferences partnered for a new bowl game in 2010 as the New Era Pinstripe Bowl was played for the first time at Yankee Stadium in New York City. In the event that the Big 12 is unable to send an eligible team to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Notre Dame could step in as the BIG EAST team’s opponent. A BIG EAST representative will face either an opponent from the Southeastern Conference or the Conference USA champion as part of a four-year arrangement with the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis. The BIG EAST will send a team to one of those bowl games in each year of the deal. The BIG EAST has been a partner with the BBVA Compass Bowl since 2006 and has sent a number of teams to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in recent years.

Senior defensive end Trevardo Williams has been named to the preseason watch list for both the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Bednarik Award – both given to the top defensive player in the country – as well as the Lombardi Award To Watch List.

HUSKIES ENTER 2012 SEASON WITH OPTIMISM The University of Connecticut football team begins the 2012 season with plenty of experience as there are six starters back on offense and eight on defense. At the same time, there are several newcomers and current underclassmen that will push those starters for playing time. As Paul Pasqualoni begins his second year in charge of the Husky program, the goal of preseason camp will be to develop individual skills and also work on various overall schemes on both offense and defense. Connecticut fell just short of bowl eligibility last year as it went 5-7 and the hope is that the 2012 season will be a return to postseason play. Pasqualoni’s coaching staff from last year remained intact with the exception of one position. Former quarterbacks coach Joe Moorhead was named the head coach at Fordham, his alma mater. Joining the Husky staff at that same position is Shane Day, who spent the past two years as the QB coach with the Chicago Bears.

OFFENSE

The biggest losses for Connecticut on offense come on the offensive line and the wide receiver spot. UConn loses center Moe Petrus, who started 51 games over his career and was a two-time All-BIG EAST pick, and Mike Ryan at tackle, a three-year starter who also earned All-BIG EAST honors twice. Although there is experience returning on the offensive line, the Huskies do lose their top two receivers from last year in Kashif Moore and Isiah Moore.

BACKFIELD The competition at quarterback will be wide open between five players. Redshirt senior Johnny McEntee started all 12 games last season while redshirt sophomore Scott McCummings also saw considerable playing time, especially in Wildcat situations. McEntee’s

335 passing attempts in 2011 was eighth in school single-season history while his 172 completions was tenth and his 2,110 net yards was 14th. Sophomore Michael Nebrich returns looking for more playing time in 2012. There are two newcomers in 2012 – redshirt sophomore Chandler Whitmer, a junior college transfer who also played a year at Illinois, and freshman Casey Cochran, a mid-year enrollee, who was the Connecticut Player-of-the-Year for the past two seasons. Both Whitmer and Cochran were January 2012 enrollees and took part in spring practice. Tailback has become a staple of the UConn offense over the years and redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs leads the way this spring after earning Freshmen All-America honors in 2011 by rushing 1,151 yards. McCombs was named to the preseason watch list for

the Maxwell Award, given to the top college football player in the country. McCombs 275 carries was fourth in UConn single-season history and his yardage was ninth. Redshirt junior Martin Hyppolite also brings experience here while redshirt freshman and Connecticut product Max DeLorenzo looks to break into the lineup and freshman Joseph Williams, another midyear enrollee, will also be in the hunt for action. Last year’s starting fullback Mark Hinkley has departed and the Huskies have several FBs on the roster looking for playing time. Redshirt sophomore Reuben Frank played in all 12 games last year while redshirt sophomore Michael Osiecki has switched from linebacker to fullback.

WIDE RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS A number of performers return at wide receiver. Senior Nick Williams is the veteran of the group and has also enjoyed a terrific career as a kickoff and punt returner. Senior Mike Smith returns after missing last season, but has played in 36 career games – the most of any returning WR. Redshirt sophomore Geremy Davis played in all 12 games last year and made six catches while classmate Tebucky Jones played in eight games with five catches. Redshirt sophomore Shakim Phillips is a transfer from Boston College, who sat out last season at UConn, and will crack the rotation this year. Sophomore Deshon Foxx, who played seven games at TB last year, was moved over to WR in the spring and will fight for playing time as will sophomore Kamal Abrams, who played in eight games in 2011. Passing to the tight end was emphasized more at Connecticut under Pasqualoni in his first year than it had been in the past.

Redshirt seniors Ryan Griffin and John Delahunt both return this season to give the Huskies outstanding experience at the position. Griffin is the team’s leading returner from last season with 33 receptions and was named to the preseason watch list for the John Mackey Award given to the top tight end in the country. Griffin is fifth in school history in receptions by a tight end with 87 and is sixth in yardage with 1,016. Delahunt had six receptions and used more in the blocking scheme. Redshirt freshman Sean McQuillan will also battle for playing time.

OFFENSIVE LINE With the departure of Petrus, redshirt sophomore Alex Mateas, a Penn State transfer, will battle for the starting spot along with 2012 midyear enrollee Kyle Bockeloh. The Huskies return two veterans at guard in redshirt senior Adam Masters on the right side and redshirt junior Steve Greene on the left. Masters started all 13 games at right guard last year while Greene started at left guard for the final eight games of the year. Masters has started 23 games over the last two seasons. Also looking for time at guard are redshirt junior Tyler Bullock and redshirt sophomore Gus Cruz. Redshirt junior Kevin Friend leads the tackles after starting nine games last year at right tackle. He will be backed up by redshirt junior Stephen Brown. There is a whole on the left side with the departure of Ryan. Redshirt senior Jimmy Bennett will look to stay healthy and compete for that spot after making two starts last year. Also in the mix are redshirt freshmen Dalton Gifford and Paul Nwokeji.

DEFENSE DEFENSIVE LINE On defense, the Huskies have lost three key starters in defensive tackles Twyon Martin and Kendall Reyes, who made an amazing 85 career starts between the two of them and were keys in UConn making three bowl appearances in the four years they played. Also lost is safety Jerome Junior, who made nine starts in 2011. The defense ends return considerable experience with senior Jesse Joseph, who has started 34 games over his career and has 106 career tackles. Senior Trevardo Williams started most games at the other defensive end spot last year and exploded towards the end of the season to finish second in the country in sacks per game. Williams has been named to the preseason watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Bednarik Award – both given to the top defensive player in the country. Williams is tied for sixth in UConn career history with 19 sacks. Also at defensive end are redshirt senior Ted Jennings, redshirt sophomore Jonathan Louis and redshirt freshmen Kenton Adeyemi. With the loss of Reyes and Martin, there is ample playing time available for those returning at defensive tackle. Redshirt junior Shamar Stephen has the most experience with 24 career games while redshirt senior Ryan Wirth has been in 18 and both will look to secure starting spots. Redshirt junior Tim Willman, redshirt sophomore Angelo Pruitt and redshirt sophomore B.J. McBryde are also in the mix at DT.

LINEBACKERS UConn has the bulk of the linebackers back from 2011 and all three starters from last year. The leader is redshirt senior Sio Moore,

who has started 21 career games and has 202 career tackles and 28.5 for a loss. Redshirt sophomore Yawin Smallwood started each game to begin his college career and had 94 tackles while redshirt senior Jory Johnson also started each game last year and had 97 tackles and has 132 for his career. Also at linebacker is senior Ryan Donohue, a transfer from Maryland, redshirt sophomore Brandon Steg, and redshirt freshmen Jefferson Ashiru and Marquise Vann.

SECONDARY Redshirt senior Dwayne Gratz started all 12 games last season to lead the UConn cornerbacks as does classmate Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Wreh-Wilson was limited to just five starts last year due to injury but has played in 30 games over the past three years with 27 starts and has 134 career tackles. Wilson is eighth in UConn career history with 171 interception return yards. Bringing additional experience to the cornerbacks is junior Taylor Mack, who has played in 21 games over the past two seasons. Redshirt freshmen Tyree Clark and David Stevenson will also look to compete here. The departure of Jerome Junior at safety leaves a hole as he started nine games last year. Redshirt sophomore Byron Jones helped pick up the slack in Wilson’s absence as he started seven games at cornerback and made 51 tackles. This year he will make the move to safety and secure a starting role again. Redshirt sophomore Ty-Meer Brown had six starts last year as he made 45 tackles and will compete for the other starting safety spot. Junior Gilbert Stlouis has played in seven career games while redshirt freshmen Andrew Adams and Wilbert Lee will all look to get on the field.

SPECIAL TEAMS

The graduation of Dave Teggart, the school’s all-time leader in points, extra points and field goals, leaves a huge gap to fill. Redshirt junior Chad Christen, who has handled kickoffs the past two years, will be the leader for that job. True freshman Bobby Puyol will also get a look. The Huskies are solid at punter with redshirt junior Cole Wagner, a Second Team All-BIG EAST pick. Wagner enters the 2012 season as the UConn career leader in punting average at 41.2 yards and is ninth in number of punts with 159 and seventh in yardage at 6,548. Wagner owns two of the top four single-season punting averages in school history. Christen will be the backup there. Junior Adam Mueller returns as the deep snapper and will be backed up by redshirt freshman Dominick Manco. There is experience in the return areas as senior Nick Williams will look to once again handle both kickoff and punt returns. Williams is second in career kickoff return yardage at UConn with 1,556 and third in number of KO returns with 55. He is also just one of three Huskies to ever have two career KO returns for a TD. Also on kickoff returns will be junior Taylor Mack and redshirt freshman Wilbert Lee. Mack and sophomore Deshon Foxx will be involved in the punt return game.

UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni has served as a college head coach for 20 seasons and is in his second year at Connecticut.


H EAD COACH P AUL P AS Q U A LO N I

P

aul Pasqualoni became the 28th head football coach at the University of Connecticut on January 14, 2011. A native of Cheshire, Conn., Pasqualoni has extensive coaching experience on the high school, college and professional level and has served as a collegiate head coach for 20 seasons.

I am so excited for Coach P. He is an excellent coach and can coach at any level but I think he is a perfect fit as a head coach at the college level. Coach P. knows how to teach, he knows how to recruit, he knows how to run a college program. I always refer fondly to my days at Syracuse and one of the main reasons is that I loved playing football for Coach P. I grew in many ways while at college - as a person, as a student and as an athlete - and I owe a lot of that to Coach P..sd

In his first season in charge of the Connecticut program in 2011, a total of nine Husky players were named All-BIG EAST Conference. Three Husky seniors took part in the NFL Combine and four played in postseason all-star games. Tailback Lyle McCombs was named a Freshman AllAmerican by the Football Writers Association of America. Pasqualoni is the BIG EAST career leader in both overall coaching wins (112) and conference coaching wins (65). He broke the overall coaching wins record last year at Connecticut passing Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer (108) and leads Beamer by eight wins in conference play. Before taking the Connecticut position, Pasqualoni had been coaching in the National Football League as he was a member of the Dallas Cowboys staff (2005-07 and 2010) and the Miami Dolphins (2008-09).

MIKE FOLEY Tight Ends A veteran of northeastern football coaching, Mike Foley enters his seventh season on the UConn staff and will now work with the tight ends. He worked with the offensive line for his first six years with the Huskies. Prior to UConn, Foley completed 21 seasons of involvement with the football team at his alma mater, Colgate University. He had served as the Raiders’ offensive coordinator and offensive line coach since 1997. Foley and his offensive line have been key factors in UConn’s outstanding rushing game in 2009-11 as the Huskies featured two 1,000-yard rushers in BIG EAST Player of the Year and All-American Jordan Todman (2009 and ‘10) and Andre Dixon (2009). Lyle McCombs joined that group in 2011. In addition, center Moe Petrus was named First Team All-BIG EAST Conference while tackle Mike Ryan was second team. Foley and his offensive line were a key factor in Donald Brown achieving the status as the country’s leading rusher in 2008. In 2008, Foley coached First Team All-BIG EAST Conference selection Will Beatty at left tackle as Beatty later went on to play in the Senior Bowl and was selected in the Second Round of the National Football League Draft by the New York Giants. In 2005, his final year at Colgate, the Raiders posted an 8-4 record and advanced to the NCAA Division I-AA Playoffs.

Of the 13 seasons in which Colgate was eligible for the playoffs with Foley aboard, the team qualified seven times. Foley also played a role in each of Colgate’s five Patriot League Championship teams (1997, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2005). Colgate broke the league record for rushing yardage three times under his tutelage, and led the Patriot League five out of his last nine seasons. During his tenure as offensive coordinator (1997-2005), Foley produced 39 All-Patriot League players including 13 on the offensive line. His offensive schemes and the line’s blocking helped pave the way for a pair of Walter Payton Award winners, Kenny Gamble in 1987 and Jamal Branch in 2003. He began his coaching career as offensive line coach at Bates College in 1978, before moving the next fall to Dartmouth as the freshman offensive line coach for one season. After one season as offensive line coach at Holy Cross in 1980, he returned to his alma mater as junior varsity head coach and varsity receivers coach. After two seasons in that position, he took over as offensive line coach in 1983. Foley added the duties of offensive coordinator in 1984. In 1986, he served as interim head coach during the absence of head coach Fred Dunlap, who was recovering from bypass surgery. Following

Dunlap’s retirement in 1987, Foley was named head coach of the Raiders, a title he held through 1992, compiling a 21-34 record. He returned to the Hamilton, N.Y. campus in 1997 as offensive coordinator and line coach after three years on the Harvard staff. The Foleys: Mike and Kathleen. While with the Crimson, he served as offensive coordinator during his entire stay. He was a four-year letterwinner at Colgate and captain of the 1977 team.

Attendance-34,562

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Freshman running back Lyle McCombs(Staten Island, N.Y) rushed for 141 yards and four touchdowns in his first collegiate game as the University of Connecticut football team won their 2011 season opener, 35-3, over Fordham before a crowd of 34,562 at Rentschler Field. The game marked the Connecticut debut for head coach Paul Pasqualoni, who tied Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech for the most overall wins by a BIG EAST coach. They both have 108 victories. Pasqualoni was the first Connecticut football coach to win his debut since 1923. The Huskies initial drive ended in a punt after two first downs, but on their second possession began to force their will on their FCS opponent after forcing a Fordham three-and-out. A six-play, 58-yard drive was capped by a McCombs two-yard run. The key play on the drive was a 24-yard pass from Johnny McEntee (Fullerton, Calif.) to Isiah Moore(Cambridge, Mass.). The Huskies started the redshirt junior McEntee, but Pasqualoni played three signal callers in the contest. Redshirt freshman Scott McCummings (Natick, Mass.) and true freshman Michael Nebrich(Burke, Va.) both played well in their Connecticut unveilings. Early in the second quarter, the Huskies took over from their own 20 and McCombs had his first big play from scrimmage, rambling 60 yards before being caught at the Ram two-yard line. Two plays later, McCombs scored from the one and Connecticut had a 14-0 lead. The Connecticut defense, which was spectacular all day, got its first turnover of the season when redshirt freshman safety Byron Jones (New Britain, Conn.) picked off a Peter Maetzold pass. On the next play from scrimmage, McCummings hit redshirt junior tight end Ryan Griffin(Londonderry, N.H.) with a beautiful 55-yard catch-and-run off of play action to put the Huskies ahead by three scores. The Huskies kept that 21-0 lead until midway through the third quarter when McCombs capped drives with scoring runs of five- and one-yard. McCombs’ four touchdowns was the first time a Connecticut footballer achieved that feat since Jordan Todman turned the trick against Cincinnati in 2009. McEntee completed eight-of-12 passes for 113 yards, while Nebrich was three-of-eight, for 60 yards and one interception. The McCummings scoring pass to Griffin was his only attempt of the game. Griffin set a career-standard with his 97 receiving yards. The Connecticut defense held the Rams to just 169 total yards of offense and was led by redshirt junior linebacker Jory Johnson(Mobile, Ala.), who had 11 tackles. Redshirt junior defensive end Teddy Jennings (Dayton, Ohio) had 2.5 tackles for loss.

Connecticut redshirt senior wide receiver Isiah Moore recorded career-highs in receptions and yards with eight catches and 143 yards. The winning score for Iowa State came with 9:08 left in the game when Darius Reynolds leaped over a pair of UConn defenders and raced across the goal line for a 20-yard touchdown reception from junior quarterback Steele Jantz. Jantz threw three interceptions in the first quarter but finished with 200 yards. The Huskies used a trio of quarterbacks with redshirt junior Johnny McEntee taking the majority of snaps as he went 13-30 for a season-high 188 yards. Redshirt freshman Lyle McCombs led the UConn running game with 46 yards on 18 rushes. Sophomore Shontrelle Johnson and redshirt sophomore James White split the carries for ISU with 14 apiece. Johnson went for 65 yards, while White ran for 44. Connecticut opened the game with a 10-play, 57-yard drive that resulted in a touchdown for redshirt freshman quarterback Scott McCummings. McCummings, in the game for just his second play, was initially ruled down at the one-yard line, but after an official review it was determined that the ball crossed the goal line prior to his knee hitting the ground. For the game, McCummings rushed for 38 yards on 10 carries. The two teams would trade turnovers several times in the remaining minutes of the first quarter as redshirt junior Dwayne Gratz picked off Jantz on the Cyclone’s first play from scrimmage. Gratz returned the ball 19 yards to the ISU 41-yard line, but UConn gave the ball back on the very next play as McEntee was intercepted by Steve Ruempolhamer. Jantz was intercepted again, with less than three minutes to play in the first, by redshirt freshman Byron Jones, which set up a 52-yard field goal by redshirt senior kicker Dave Teggart to put the Huskies up 10-0. For Teggart, it tied his career long. Before the end of the first, UConn would force a third turnover as Jory Johnson grabbed a ball off a pass broken up by linebacker Sio Moore. Despite outgaining Iowa State 101-4 in the first, Connecticut went into halftime up only 10-7 as the Cyclones held a 114-13 advantage in the second quarter. ISU got on the board when James White broke loose for a 26-yard touchdown run to cut the Huskies lead to three. The Cyclones went on top early in the third quarter when White flipped the ball to junior WR Josh Lenz on a reverse, who threw a deep ball for Reynolds to take into the end zone. UConn came back with a 50-yard field goal from Teggart, the second time in his career he converted two field goals of 50 yard. With 6:44 left to play in the quarter, Iowa State added to its lead with a 36-yard field goal by senior kicker Zach Guyer, to go up 17-13. Connecticut regained the lead early in the fourth quarter as McCummings hooked up with redshirt senior wide receiver Kashif Moore for a 39-yard touchdown to take a 20-17 lead. McCummings has completed two passes on the season, both for touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, junior linebacker Jake Knott made 11 tackles and forced one fumble for the Cylcones, while Johnson added 10 tackles to go with his interception for the Huskies.

Attendance – 36,648 EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Johnny McEntee threw for 300 yards and four touchdowns for the University of Connecticut football team as the Huskies lost to Western Michigan by a 38-31 score on Saturday before a crowd of 36,648 at Rentschler Field. Kashif Moore had two touchdown catches and 112 yards receiving and Lyle McCombs added 136 yards rushing and a 26-yard touchdown reception for the Huskies. Alex Carder threw for a career-high 479 yards and five touchdowns to lead Western Michigan. Two of those scores were caught by Jordan White, who had his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season, catching 12 balls for 173 yards. He was one of three Bronco receivers to go over the century mark. Robert Arnheim had 113 yards and Chleb Ravenell added 123 and two fourth-quarter touchdowns, including a 41-yard catch that turned out to be the game winner. After making a 26-yard catch at the Western Michigan 13-yard line with 45 seconds left, UConn tight end Ryan Griffin fumbled. UConn scored the first of the fourth quarter’s five touchdowns, when McEntee found McCombs open behind the Broncos’ blitzing linebackers for a 26-yard score to give UConn its only lead at 24-17. But Carder led the Broncos right back on a 9-play 80-yard drive, finding White in the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown that tied the game. The Broncos held UConn to a three-and-out, and then went 62-yards to take the lead again on a 14-yard pass from Carder to Ravenell. UConn tied it again when McEntee scrambled and found Nick Williams on a fourth down from 26 yards out with just over 2 minutes left. Two plays after UConn’s kickoff went out of bounds, Ravenell raced down the right sideline and reached over cornerback Gary Wilburn to bring in a 41-yard touchdown with 1:35 left. Arnheim beat Wilburn down the right sideline and made a one-handed 32-yard catch to set up the Broncos second touchdown, an 11-yard pass from Carder to tight end Dallas Walker. The Broncos went 66 yards on their first drive of the second quarter and scored when White grabbed a slant pass and dragged several UConn defenders into the end zone for a 25-yard catch and run. The Huskies didn’t cross midfield until McCombs took a handoff at his own 7-yard line with just over 6 minutes left in the half, bounced off a tackle and ran 65 yards before tripping on the grass. That set up a 9-yard touchdown pass from McEntee to Moore. Moore’s second touchdown, a 3-yard reception on a play-action fake, was set up by his 47-yard catch and run. The 5-play 72-yard drive brought UConn to within 17-14 midway through the third quarter.

EAST HARTFORD – University of Connecticut redshirt freshman Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) ran for 130 yards and senior kicker Dave Teggart (Northborough, Mass.) kicked three field goals as the Huskies beat USF 16-10 on Saturday without scoring an offensive touchdown. The Homecoming contest was played before a crowd of 37,162 at Rentschler Field.

B.J. Daniels threw for 164 yards and ran for 64 and a touchdown. But the USF quarterback also threw two interceptions and had a key fumble. The Bulls failed to convert on a fourth down with just under 2 1/2 minutes left and the Huskies ran out the clock. A 32-yard run from Daniels had given the Bulls the ball in UConn territory. But a fourth-down pass to Sterling Griffin was stopped four yards short of the first-down marker.

Pittsburgh outgained UConn in total yardage 529-316 on the night despite loosing Ray Graham, the country’s second-leading rusher, on his second carry of the game. UConn junior quarterback Johnny McEntee (Fullerton, Calif.) struggled in the air as he was 17 of 33 for 193 yards and two TDs. Redshirt freshman Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) enjoyed a productive night on the ground as he rushed 25 times for 124 yards. It marked the fifth 100-yard game of his eightgame collegiate career. Sunseri was also the top ground gainer for the Panthers with 12 carries for 40 yards and a TD. Zach Brown was Sunseri’s favorite target of the night with 9 catches for 84 yards to go with 30 yards gained on the ground. Pittsburgh led 21-3 at halftime but the Huskies scored the first ten points of the second half to cut the Panther lead to 21-13 with 4:08 left in the third. Senior Kashif Moore (Burlington, N.J.) scored UConn’s only TD of the night as McEntee found him wide open with 11:35 to go in the third for a 62-yard score to make it 21-10. Moore finished the game with six receptions for 106 yards. UConn cut it to 21-13 on its next possession as senior Dave Teggart (Northborough, Mass.) hit a 31-yard field goal. It was Teggart’s fifth game of the year with multiple field goals and the 19th of his career. That UConn drive began at its own 22 and the Huskies moved all the way to the Pitt 10-yard line for first and goal, but had to settle for the field goal. As it appeared the game might be turning the Huskies’ way, Pittsburgh quickly came back after the field goal and moved the ball 82 yards on only five plays for a score that made it 28-13. The touchdown was scored on a 27-yard pass from Sunseri to Mike Shanahan. Ronald Jones replaced Sunseri late in the fourth quarter and led the Panthers on their fifth touchdown drive of the night as he found Devin Street for a 14-yard touchdown reception to cap a three play scoring drive. UConn got a one touchdown back with less than a minute to play as McEntee hooked up with junior tight end Ryan Griffin (Londonderry, N.H.) from 14 yards out to put the game at 35-20. Pittsburgh completely dominated the first half outgaining the Huskies in total yardage 321 to 80 and holding a 17-5 first down advantage. The Panthers scored on their first possession as they moved the ball 84 yards. Graham injured his leg on his second rush of the drive, but the Panthers did not flinch as they gained 51 yards on the next four plays for the score. Zach Brown had a three-yard rush for the 7-0 Pitt lead. Pittsburgh made it 14-0 on a 17-yard TD pass from Sunseri to Shanahan that capped a seven-play, 62-yard drive. Sunseri was a perfect five-for-five in that drive for 54 yards in that drive. UConn finally broke into the scoring column when Teggart hit a 40-yarder with 7:17 left in the half to make it 14-3. Connecticut moved the ball effectively as it started on its own 32 and got the ball to first and ten on the Pitt 25, but could only get two yards from there to settle for the field goal.

1897

1919

1896 The history of intercollegiate football at the University of Connecticut begins with the formation of the Athletic League of New England State Colleges. Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island join for the purpose of scheduling regular meetings in football and baseball. Connecticut is known as Storrs Agricultural College. 1897 A year of firsts, all in one game; first game against Rhode Island, first game against a collegiate opponent and first game in the newly formed conference. S.A.C. wins 22-8. 1899 Storrs Agricultural College changes its name to Connecticut Agricultural College. 1901 The 1901 squad finished 8-2 and registered six shutouts on the season, including five straight in one stretch. Rhode Island was the only intercollegiate opponent on the schedule and was one of the shutout victims, falling to the “Aggies” of Connecticut Agricultural College by a count of 27-0. 1919 Gardner Dow, a native of New Haven, dies on September 20, 1919, after making a spectacular flying tackle in a game at New Hampshire. Dow suffered a concussion of the brain. The athletic fields behind Hawley Armory were named after him and served as the site of home games for football, baseball, soccer, lacrosse and track meets.

1934

1923 Connecticut enters the New England Conference, which includes all New England state schools except for the University of Vermont. 1924 This squad is down in the annals as one of the school’s finest, finishing 6-0-2 and winning the New England Conference Championship. The Aggies are said by the New York Times to be among the best teams in the country and the team defense finishes first in the nation. The team gave up only 13 points all season and only three in the final seven games. Senior team captain Martin “Red” Martin “Red” O’Neill – O’Neill is the school’s first All-America UConn’s first All-America candidate, leading the 1923 and 1924 teams. Candidate As legend has it, his career started in 1922 during a loss to Springfield College. A Connecticut Agricultural College (now UConn) player was injured and the coaches could find no one to replace him among the reserves. Someone spotted O’Neill watching the game from the stands and called to him to join in the game. He threw on a uniform and stepped into the line-up, where he would remain for three seasons. 1934 First season for head coach J.O. Christian. The school receives big press coverage at the end of the 1-7 campaign for stealing the Rhody Ram mascot before the game with Rhode Island (pictured above). 1935 First football team to come in early for preseason camp at the expense of the school.

Gardner Dow

1939 First season as the University of Connecticut; team defeats Coast Guard, 14-0, in the first game ever played under flood lights at Gardner Dow Field.

1945 1942, 1944-1945 During the war years, head coach J.O. Christian and the Huskies put together a three-year stretch like none other in school history. In that three-season span (with no football being played in 1943), Connecticut won 20 of 24 contests. The Huskies registered separate winning streaks of six, eight and five games and shutout their opponents in 13 of the 20 wins. 1945 UConn tailback Walt Trojanowski shares the NCAA scoring title with Doc Blanchard of Army. Both men scored 132 points on the season. 1947 UConn becomes a charter member of the Yankee Conference. 1953 Memorial Stadium opens with a 26-6 Connecticut win over St. Lawrence on October 10, 1953. The 1953 season also marked the first appearance at a football game for the marching band. 1956-1960 UConn captures five straight Yankee Conference Championships, a league-record for consecutive titles won or shared. During that span, the Huskies compile a 17-1-2 record in Yankee Conference play and go 18 league contests before their lone loss in the stretch, to New Hampshire. 1965 UConn beats Yale for the first time ever (pictured on page 138), on September 25, 1965, 13-6. UConn becomes the first school from within the state of Connecticut to ever beat Yale. 1969 UConn joins the NCAA in celebrating the 100th anniversary of college football by selecting an 11-member All-Time UConn team. More than 130 UConn football players receive votes in the balloting of fans, alumni and former players.

1965

1967-73 Connecticut captures four Yankee Conference championships in a seven-season span, going 27-6-3 in league play during that stretch. 1983 Linebackers John Dorsey and Vernon Hargreaves become the first teammates in UConn football history to earn All-America honors in the same season. The duo combined for more than 300 tackles and helped UConn to a share of the Yankee Conference Championship. 1989 UConn plays the first night game in the history of Memorial Stadium on September 23, 1989, and defeats New Hampshire, 20-10. 1990 Matt DeGennaro finishes his Husky career as the leading passer in the history of the Yankee Conference, totaling 9,288 yards and 73 touchdowns. 1995 UConn matches the most successful start in school history by winning its first six games of the year. Senior captain Wilbur Gilliard becomes the all-time leading rusher in school history. Gilliard finishes his career with 2,624 rushing yards. The 1995 team finishes 8-3 and ties the school record for wins in a season. The squad finished the year ranked No. 23 in the national I-AA top 25. 1998 UConn football celebrates its 100th season with a school-record 10 wins and advances to the NCAA I-AA football playoffs for the first time. UConn defeats Hampton, 42-34, in its first playoff game and advances to the NCAA Quarterfinals. The Huskies finish the season ranked No. 7 in the national I-AA rankings. Senior quarterback Shane Stafford is the only active player named to the UConn Football 100th Anniversary AllTime Team and finishes his career in the top two of every quarterbacking category in school history. 1999 Randy Edsall becomes UConn’s 27th head coach and leads the Huskies through their final season in Division I-AA. UConn finishes 4-7, but wins its first ever game against a Division I-A opponent, beating Buffalo 23-0 on September 16.

2000 UConn begins play as a Division I-A Independent. The team earns two wins over Division I-A opponents and sets a single-season record for average home attendance (14,166), playing before the three largest crowds in school history (all advance sellouts) in their first three home games.

2007 UConn captured its first-ever BIG EAST Championship and appeared in the Meineke Car Care Bowl, selling out its allotment of 12,500 tickets for the game in Charlotte, N.C. During the season, UConn earned its first-ever national rankings, peaking at No. 16 in the AP Poll and No. 13 in the BCS.

2001 UConn earned its first-ever victory over a BIG EAST opponent as Marc Hickok nailed a career-long 47-yard field goal with 3:04 remaining in the game to lift the Huskies to a 20-19 win over Rutgers.

2008 UConn advanced to a bowl in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history and defeated Buffalo in the 2009 International Bowl in Toronto. Running back Donald Brown led the country in rushing with 2,083 yards and became UConn’s first All-American since the program moved to the FBS. Brown was also named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year – UConn’s first-ever BIG EAST individual award winner. Following the season, the Huskies had four players taken in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft.

2002 UConn has a breakthrough season, posting a 6-6 record, including a win at Big 12 member Iowa State, which would advance to a bowl game. For the first time, the NCAA included UConn in the Division I-A statistics and the Huskies placed in the national top five in passing defense and ranked 19th in total defense. Terry Caulley was the nation’s leading freshman rusher with 1,247 yards on the year. The Huskies closed a 50-year run at Memorial Stadium with a 63-21 win over Kent State in which Caulley tied an NCAA record by scoring four touchdowns in one quarter. 2003 UConn made its debut at Rentschler Field, playing to 93% capacity (37,059). The large home crowds helped push the Huskies to a 9-3 record, including a 34-10 win over Big Ten member Indiana on opening day. 2004 UConn made its debut as a member of the BIG EAST Conference in style as the Huskies finished one game back of the leaders and earned a berth in the Motor City Bowl. The Huskies led the conference in both total offense and total defense while Cornell Brockington led the BIG EAST with 1,218 rushing yards. The season ended with a win over Toledo in the Motor City Bowl as quarterback Dan Orlovsky was named MVP.

2009 Connecticut advances to a bowl game for the third-straight season and posts a 20-7 win over South Carolina. The Huskies endured an emotional season with the death of teammate Jasper Howard on Oct. 19, but came back to win its final four games, including a 33-30 double overtime win at Notre Dame. 2010 UConn appears in a Bowl Championship series game for the first time as it plays Oklahoma in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Huskies won five consecutive games to close the regular season and claim the BIG EAST Championship and a trip to the BCS. Running back Jordan Todman was unanimously named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year and was an All-American pick. Todman was also the second-leading rusher in the country. Nick Williams led the country in kickoff return average.

an Orlovsky earned Most Valuable Player honors after going 20 of 41 in the air for 239 yards and two touchdowns as UConn defeated MAC Champion Toledo by a 39-10 score in the 2004 Motor City Bowl, UConn’s first ever bowl appearance. In addition to O­rlovsky’s honor, Tyler King was named the United Auto Workers Lineman of the Game. The Huskies were led in rushing by Cornell Brockington, who had 15 carries for 72 yards. The leading receiver on the day for UConn was Keron Henry with nine catches for 239 yards. UConn got out of the gates early, and set a Motor City Bowl record, by scoring 17 points in the first quarter while shutting the Rockets out. The Huskies took the opening drive 41 yards on eight plays to set up a 35-yard field goal by Matt Nuzie. Nuzie went on to kick three more field goals, for a total of four, to set a new Motor City Bowl record and tie a UConn singlegame record. The Huskies scored the first touchdown of the contest as Orlovsky, after eluding a blitzing Rocket, hit Jason Williams in the corner of the end zone for a dazzling 32-yard TD pass on a fourth and six play. The final points of the first quarter came as Larry Taylor returned a punt 68 yards for a score. Toledo scored its first points of the game as it grinded out a 13-play, 63-yard drive that ended with a one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Bruce Gradowski. The Huskies scored 13 more points in the second quarter to take a 30-7 lead at the half. Orlovsky threw a seven-yard TD pass to Brian Sparks, whose sliding catch with 7:42 left in the half capped an eight-play, 41-yard drive. That touchdown was set up by a 54-yard kickoff return by Taylor. Nuzie kicked a pair of field goals in the final 1:24 of the half – a 37-yarder and a 25-yarder on the final play of the half. The teams traded a pair of field goals for the only scoring of the third quarter as Jason Robbins hit a 27-yard field goal for Toledo 3:13 into the half while Nuzie hit a 36-yarder with 1:53 left to play in the quarter. The only scoring of the fourth quarter came with 25 seconds remaining as sophomore Matt Lawrence scored a touchdown on an 11-yard run.

ake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner was 29-of-38 in the air for 268 yards and a touchdown to lead the Demon Deacons to a 24-10 victory over UConn in the 2007 Meineke Car Care Bowl before a crowd of 53,126 at Bank of America Stadium. The two halves were mirror images of each other as UConn shutout Wake Forest in the first half and the Demon Deacons held the Huskies scoreless in the second. The contest was the second bowl game in the last four years for UConn – who has been playing as a member of the BIG EAST for only four years. The Huskies defeated Toledo in the 2004 Motor City Bowl. This year, UConn sold its entire allotment of 12,500 tickets for the bowl game in Charlotte – the second BIG EAST school to ever do that. UConn led 10-0 at the half, but Wake Forest scored two third quarter touchdowns to take a 14-10 lead after three quarters.

n a defensively-minded game, the University of Connecticut football team nearly shutout South Carolina in the Papajohns.com Bowl to earn the school’s first win over a Southeastern Conference opponent. The game was played in front of a crowd of 45,254 at Legion Field, a Papajohns.com Bowl record attendance. UConn finished with the 20-7 victory earning their second-straight and third overall bowl victory. The Huskies shut out South Carolina in the first three quarters of the game and have shut out their bowl opponents in nine of 16 quarters played. With his 126 yards on the day, senior tailback and Fred Sington Most Vaulable Player Andre Dixon reached the 1,000-yard mark for the season becoming the 12th running back in UConn history to reach the mark and joining teammate Jordan Todman, who accomplished the feat earlier in the season. Todman finished the day with 36 yards. This is the first time in UConn history that two running backs have rushed for over 1,000 yards in the same season. They join Nevada and Georgia Tech as NCAA FBS teams that have at least two players that have rushed for over 1,000 yards during the 2009 season. Junior quarterback Zach Frazer was nine of 21 in the air for 106 yards and connected with sophomore Kashif Moore two times for 40 yards and a touchdown. Stephen Garcia led South Carolina by passing for 129 yards on a 16 for 38 effort also rushing for 56 yards on the day. Alshon Jeffery grabbed three passes for 28 yards for the Gamecocks. The Huskies were the first to get on the board after an unbelievable one-handed 37-yard grab by Moore, who tiptoed along the sidelines and extended into the endzone to put the Huskies up with 6:31 remaining in the first quarter.

South Carolina decided to attempt a fourth and short at its own 32-yard line but senior Lindsey Witten stepped up and stopped the rush as the Huskies took over in Gamecock territory. UConn got the ball down to the 16-yard line but settled for a 33-yard field goal by sophomore Dave Teggart to improve their lead to 10-0. Teggart boosted the lead to 13-0 in the second quarter with 8:26 remaining in the game connecting on his second field goal of the game, a 44-yard boot, setting a new Papajohns.com Bowl record. Later in the quarter, South Carolina earned their first first down of the game with 7:37 left in the half. They only managed four first downs in the entire first half for a net of 84 yards. After SC fumbled at their own 35-yard line, Dixon used the opportunity to record his first touchdown of the day, a 10-yard run to boost the Huskies lead to 20 with 13:12 remaining in the fourth quarter. Dixon’s TD capped a 3:53 minute, nine play 35-yard drive. The Gamecocks got on the board with 3:24 remaining in the game capitalizing on a blocked punt and scoring on a two-play 40-yard drive. Alex Molina recovered an onside kick for the Huskies as UConn ran out the clock.

UCON N AND THE CF L UConn And The Canadian Football League

T

he University of Connecticut has a long tradition of sending players to the Canadian Football League – both Canadian natives as “nonimport” players and natives of the United States. UConn has five players in the CFL during the 2012 season. Tight end Martin Bedard is a fouryear member of the Montreal Alouettes and the team was Grey Cup Champions in 2009 and 2010. Larry Taylor is a four-year veteran of the CFL and plays for Calgary after playing for Montreal from 2008-2010. Taylor also won a pair of Grey Cup titles and was the 2009 CFL Special Teams Player of the Year. As a rookie in 2008, he returned two punts for touchdowns in the East Division final against Edmonton. Julius Williams, who played at UConn through 2008, is playing his second CFL season in 2012 and is with the Edmonton Eskimos. The following other Huskies have won Grey Cup titles: Shawn Mayne with Montreal in 2009 and ’10; Danny Desriveaux with Montreal in 2009; and Maurice Lloyd with Saskatchewan in 2007.

Former UConn tight end Martin Bedard, who graduated in 2008, was one of four former Huskies that were on the 2009 Montreal Alouettes team that won the Grey Cup in November 2009.
