A New Look for the Huskies The 2013-14 academic year marks the debut of a new look for the uniforms worn by University of Connecticut student-athletes and coaches of all 24 Husky teams. The two major changes will be the use of “UCONN” across the front of every uniform worn by each team and a new look for the Jonathan Husky logo. The new look is part of a new institutional branding and marketing program that uses “UCONN” as the primary mark of the University in all signage, publications, advertising and marketing activities. A new Husky dog logo was also developed as part of a review of all athletic team logos and marks, which in recent years had moved away from a consistent look on team uniforms. The new Jonathan Husky logo is a reflection of comments by coaches and student-athletes who participated in the process of reviewing the branding and logos used in the Division of Athletics.

Philosophy Academics Are The Priority

Head coach Paul Pasqualoni and his staff emphasize 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 five seasons. UConn’s 2012 GSR score was eight points over the national average for FBS teams. In the latest NCAA Academic Performance Rate (APR) results, the UConn score over a four-year period was six points over the national average for FBS teams and 11 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.

Bowl Games

Connecticut has now played in a bowl game in five seasons in its brief FBS history, including four of the past six 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 for the first time in school 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”.

Conference Champions

Each and every year, the Connecticut football team expects to be a factor in the race for its conference championship and the new American Athletic Conference will be a highly-competitively and exciting league . The goal of a conference championship 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.

Community Service

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.

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 its locker room.


quarters of the games played there and has posted victories over teams from the 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.

Staying In Touch With Alumni

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 give a video presentation on the latest crop of National Letter of 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, Nick Williams led the country kickoff returns and in 2011, 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 four times on defense (2002, ’05, ’08 and ‘12).

Professional Football

Former UConn players are in the National Football League in numbers that are unprecedented in school history. UConn had 12 players on active NFL rosters in 2012 – the most ever in school history. The 2013 NFL Draft saw five Huskies taken – an all-time high for the Huskies. Only five schools in the country had more 2013 NFL Draft picks in the first six rounds than UConn. 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 three-

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 seven 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

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 American Athletic Conference and each year plays a challenging non-conference schedule. The winner of the American each year will have access to the pinnacle of college football’s postseason structure. In 2013, the league champion will receive an automatic bid for the final edition of the Bowl Championship Series. Moving forward, The American champion will have access to the College Football Playoff semifinals 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. UConn will also have upcoming home games against BYU (2014), Boise State (2014) and Virginia (2016).


U.S. News World Report ranks UConn among the top 25 public universities in the nation. UConn’s School of Business is ranked among the Top 25 public undergraduate business programs in the U.S. according to U.S. News and World Report. The University has been selected as a member of Universitas 21, a preeminent international network of leading research-intensive universities in 15 countries. The Neag School of Education’s doctoral program in kinesiology ranks No. 1 in the nation, according to the American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

Next Generation Connecticut “Next Generation Connecticut” was signed into law this past summer and positions UConn to ascend the ranks of the world’s elite research universities, as its intellectual capital is put to work energizing the state’s innovation-based economy. The $1.5 billion construction component is an investment in building new scientific laboratories, purchasing advanced equipment, constructing new classrooms, and adding housing. The state will also invest $137 million in operating funds to hire hundreds of new faculty, and to expand the student body in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math). The initiative is projected to bring in more than $270 million in new research dollars over 10 years, spur well over half a billion dollars in business activity, and support more than 4,000 permanent jobs, plus 30,000 construction jobs.

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 18th year, UCONN 2000 has invigorated the University’s living and learning environments, helped advance faculty research, and stimulated public and private investment. This investment revitalizes the state’s future by providing the means for the University to attract high-achieving students, prestigious faculty, and funding from public grants and private donors. The multibillion dollar facelift has facilitated UConn’s ascent to national prominence among public research universities.

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.

American Athletic

C onference

N

ot entirely unlike the nation that provides its namesake, the American Athletic Conference was born from an ideal in which members with ambitious goals are provided with the means to succeed in their quests for excellence. With roots that extend to three conferences, the American Athletic Conference membership in 2013 – its debut season – consists of 10 institutions: the University of Central Florida, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Connecticut, the University of Houston, the University of Louisville, the University of Memphis, Rutgers University, Southern Methodist University, the University of South Florida and Temple University. In 2014-15, East Carolina University, Tulane University and the University of Tulsa come aboard. The 2015-16 season sees the U.S. Naval Academy join the ranks in football only. The American, which operated as the Big East Conference from 1979 to 2013, will immediately take a place at the forefront of Division I athletics, with schools that have played in a combined five Bowl Championship Series games, won four NCAA men’s basketball titles since 1999 and won eight NCAA women’s basketball championships since 1995. Among the league’s 2013 members, seven of The American’s 10 football teams have been ranked in the top 13 in the BCS since 2006. Eight of the 10 teams have been in the BCS top 25 in that span. The 2013-14 membership will also include the most recent NCAA men’s basketball (Louisville) and women’s basketball (UConn) champions.

The 2013 season will mark the final year of a six-year arrangement with ESPN that gives The American national exposure on ABC television and the ESPN family of networks. ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC will carry a minimum of 19 American home football games each season. Championship Week in December includes three American games on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. At least four American games are featured on ESPN’s Thursday-night package. In addition, ESPN Regional Television will continue to produce and distribute its 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. Following the 2013 football season, the American Athletic Conference enters new television partnerships with ESPN and CBS Sports which will give the conference unprecedented national exposure. The football portion of the contract, which begins in the 2014 season, calls for nearly 90 percent of conference-controlled games on national broadcast or national cable platforms. The first American Athletic Conference Football Championship, which will be played in 2015, will be carried either on ABC or ESPN on Championship Saturday. In men’s basketball, the new television deal calls for all conference-controlled games to be televised, with more than 63 percent slotted for national broadcast or national cable – a minimum of 107 games. The entire postseason tournament will be televised, including the championship game, which will be either on ABC or ESPN.

American Athletic Conference teams will have access to the pinnacle of college football’s postseason structure, both in the coming season and beyond. In 2013-14, the league champion will receive an automatic bid for the final edition of the Bowl Championship Series, including a spot in the VIZIO National Championship Game if it is ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings. Moving forward, The American champion would be chosen for the College Football Playoff semifinals if it is among the top four teams following the regular season. Otherwise, the league would place its champion in either the Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl or Peach Bowl if it is ranked higher than the champions of Conference USA, the Mid-American Conference, the Mountain West Conference and the Sun Belt Conference.

The postseason lineup gives American Athletic Conference teams access to at least six postseason games.

The American has additional partnerships with a number of bowl games in 2013 that match conference teams against opponents from the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Big 12 Conference, the Southeastern Conference and Conference USA. The Russell Athletic Bowl has the first selection of American teams after the conference’s BCS representative is determined. The Atlantic Coast Conference will provide the opposition for the Russell Athletic Bowl, which is played in Orlando, Fla. The American also is a partner with the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, N.C. Played in Bank of America Stadium, the Belk Bowl will select its American Athletic Conference participant after the Russell Athletic Bowl with the ACC again providing the opponent. The American and the Big 12 conferences partner for the New Era Pinstripe Bowl 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 American team’s opponent. An American representative will face either an opponent from the Southeastern Conference or the Conference USA champion as part of arrangements with the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis. The league also holds a partnership with the Beef ‘O’Brady’s Bowl at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Beef ‘O’Brady’s

The American Athletic Conference administers to its membership from a state-of-the-art office located in Providence, R.I. The location of the conference headquarters – just steps from the city’s Amtrak station and 10 minutes from T.F. Green International Airport – gives the conference easy access to its member schools. The conference headquarters is equipped with a complete video production studio and small- and large-scale meeting rooms to accommodate the many coaches’ and administrators’ meetings held on-site each year.

Intercollegiate Athletes T

he Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes, a unit within the Division of Athletics, 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. 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 perform a number of footballrelated 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 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 student-athlete’s academic performance.

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 student-athlete, the Learning Disability office and Disability Services to provide the student with the best support possible.

Freshman Summer Program 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.

Strength & Conditioning T

he strength and conditioning program for the University of Connecticut football players is coordinated and directed by UConn’s Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Jerry Martin and Assistant Coach Joel DeMarco. The UConn strength and conditioning program benefits all 24 of Connecticut’s intercollegiate teams.

UConn football players enjoy a state-of-theart 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.


T

he 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 fifth year of its reading initiative in the winter of 2012 with the Verplanck Elementary School in Manchester, Conn. Through a generous donation by the SBM Foundation,

Community Service


UConn student-athletes visit Verplanck to participate in a variety of activities aimed at teaching the value of education, sportsmanship, integrity and teamwork. UConn’s continuing outreach partnership 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 2012-13 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 are collected.


Sports Medicine T

he 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. In the football program, Howard is assisted by Anthony Salvatore, MS, 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 Physicians, Dr. Thomas Trojian and Dr. Giselle Aerni. 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.

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 seven seasons, former UConn head coaches and alumni have served as honorary coaches for the Blue-White Spring Game. In May of 2012, 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.

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 and also played during the 2012 season. 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 senior punter Cole Wagner joined the team as a walkon prior to the 2009 season. He became the Husky starter in 2010, earned a scholarship for 2011 and wound up an All-BIG EST pick for the season and will be UConn’s starting punter in 2013. UConn redshirt senior tight end Spencer Parker is a walk-on and earned a letter in 2013. He took a curious route to UConn as the Newington, Conn., native first played volleyball as an all-conference pick at Lasell College in Massachusetts. He then transferred to

UConn and resumed his football career and played in eight games last year – mostly on special teams. 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 walk-on, Chard earned a scholSenior punter Cole Wagner originally joined the Huskies as arship for his final two a freshman walk-on and now has been elevated to a scholaryears at UConn. ship player and has earned All-BIG EAST honors. 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 guard and earned All-BIG EAST honors in 2007. Capping a remarkable story, Thomas was drafted by the Miami Dolphins following his senior year and, after playing for the New England Patriots, is now a member of the Indianapolis Colts. 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. • Brian Sparks 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.

Senior tight end Spencer Parker earned a letter in 2012 for his play on special teams.

Now in its 17th year, completed projects include: • An award-winning building for the Department of Chemistry. According to the International Architecture Yearbook, the Chemistry building is one of the best-designed buildings in the world. • New buildings for the Schools of Business and Pharmacy. • The modern Biology/Physics Building. • New building for Information Technologies Engineering. • A new Agricultural Biotechnology Laboratory. • Additions to the William Benton Museum of Art. • Renovations to numerous facilities, including the Homer Babbidge Library, the historic Wilbur Cross building, the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History, and the Philip E. Austin Building, the home of UConn’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. • Construction that includes the latest innovations in student residential communities. • Oak Hall and Laurel Hall are dynamic new buildings dedicated solely to state-of-the art classrooms, both notable for their environmental conscious, sustainable energy feature. Laurel Hall is the University’s First Green LEED Certification building. • Widmer Wing, a new 15,800-square foot addition to the main building of UConn’s School of Nursing. • Additions and renovations to the Weston A. Bousfield Psychology Building. • In addition to the improvements to the Storrs campus, the Avery Point campus houses a sophisticated marine facility; the campuses at Stamford, Waterbury, Hartford, and Torrington have been revitalized, as well as the UConn School of Law. •A new technology park with the initial building scheduled to be completed in 2015-16. The first facility will consist of a 125,000 square foot Innovation Partnership Building, allowing industry scientists and business entrepreneurs to work side-by-side using world-class equipment and shared laboratories.


The State of

Storrs Center:

A New Downtown


Our Campus is Connecticut In addition to the main campus in Storrs, the University of Connecticut has a number of other campuses and schools around the state, which truly makes the state into the campus. The UConn Health Center and John Dempsey Hospital is located in Farmington, just west of Hartford. Today, Bioscience Connecticut, an $864 million initiative, is transforming the campus of the UConn Health Center. Bioscience Connecticut is a forwardthinking plan to create thousands of construction and related jobs in the short-term and generate long-term, sustainable economic growth based on bioscience research, innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialization. It is a multifaceted plan that also includes initiatives to improve access to healthcare services in the region and beyond. Renovations have begun in the original research tower and work is underway to build the new outpatient care center and the new hospital tower. In addition, groundbreaking ceremonies were held in January for the new $1.1 billion Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, the first return on the state’s Bioscience Connecticut investment, which will be housed on the UConn Health Center campus. The Jackson initiative is a collaboration between the globally prominent Jackson Laboratory, UConn, the Health Center and leading academic and healthcare institutions in the region. The UConn School of Law is one of the leading public law schools in the country. Its campus, listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, is among the most beautiful of any law school in the United States. The newly-completed law library is perhaps the finest facility of its kind in the world. Two miles from the center of Hartford, the Law School is located in a neighborhood of large Victorian homes. UConn has long had an undergraduate campus in the Greater Hartford region and plans are now underway to relocate that campus to the center of downtown Hartford. The UConn campus in downtown Stamford is surrounded by a cluster of corporate headquarters including a number of Fortune 500 companies, such as Pitney-Bowes and Charter Communications. The UConn campus in Waterbury is housed in a new state-of the-art facility. Options exist to transfer to the Storrs campus after two years or earn a degree right in Waterbury. UConn’s “campus by the ocean” is located at Avery Point in the southern portion of the state in Groton. Avery Point is the home to the Connecticut Sea Grant Program in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Project Oceanography, and education program for middle school and high school students, is also on the Avery Point campus. The Torrington campus, located in the hills of the western portion of the state, is home to the famed Litchfield County Writers Program. The program attracts visits by some of the country’s most preeminent writers including Roxana Robinson and the late Madeline L’Engle and Arthur Miller.


• There are approximately 22,000 UConn graduates who live in New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area. • The New York Chapter of the UConn Alumni Association is the group’s fastest growing chapter. • In 2010-11, UConn men’s basketball was the most viewed Big East Conference team in New York City. A combined 1.35 million households watched UConn basketball games in the New York DMA that were televised on ESPN or ESPN2.

“A lot of people don’t understand what makes New York

tick. The two schools with the biggest impact in the New York market have been Syracuse and Connecticut.

Former BIG EAST Commissioner Mike Tranghese, New York Times, March 11, 2013

• UConn’s five games in the BIG EAST tournament were watched by a combined 590,000 households in the New York DMA.

• The world-famous Metropolitan Opera in New York City has an exclusive educational partnership with UConn, providing internships and other benefits for Fine Arts students.


UConn and New York City The UConn Football Footprint In New York City • In a recent New York Times on-line story, UConn was the only former BIG EAST school listed among the top five most popular college football teams in both the New York and Boston DMAs.

SNY (SportsNet New York) Recognizes The Popularity Of The UConn Brand • UConn is the only university in the country whose football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball television programs have syndicated TV packages with the same regional sports network – SportsNet New York, which is also the television home of the New York Mets. A total of 38 UConn games during the 201213 academic year were shown by SNY, whose distribution is 14 million television households.  SNY’s four-state regional footprint, which includes New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, is comprised of nine million TV households.  Its national distribution through satellite service is five million TV homes.  • SNY, with its headquarters located in midtown Manhattan, dedicates more than 650 hours of coverage annually to UConn Athletics, including live games, re-airs, previews/reviews, coaches’ shows, specials and features.

Huskies Have High Hopes In A Challenging 2013 Season

Chandler Whitmer

T

he University of Connecticut football team enters the 2013 season in a new conference – the American Athletic Conference – and with the best non-conference schedule in school history. Pundits should not underestimate the teams in this new league in the sport of football. Some of the familiar names on the schedule have changed for Husky fans, but the American will feature topnotch institutions with on-campus stadiums where football is very important. As the tenth anniversary of UConn football at Rentschler Field is celebrated in 2013, the Huskies will face the best home schedule in the history of the facility, highlighted by home games against Michigan, Maryland, Rutgers, USF and Louisville. UConn welcomes three new members of its coaching staff this season in offensive coordinator-receivers coach T.J. Weist, special teams coordinator and running backs coach Kermit Buggs and former Husky letterman and graduate assistant coach Shane Fogarty.

Lyle McCombs

Offense QUARTERBACK

On offense, the Huskies return a key number of last year’s leaders. Redshirt junior quarterback Chandler Whitmer (Newnan, Ga.) started all 12 games last season – his first year of action in college football. Whitmer showed improvement each week and finished the year with 2,664 passing yards and nine passing TDs. He threw for 200 yards or more in five of his final six games last season. Also back at the QB spot is redshirt junior Scott McCummings (Natick, Mass.), who saw time last year primarily in the “wildcat” position. Redshirt freshman Casey Cochran (Monroe, Conn.) looks forward to spring practice after being sidelined with a hand injury for most of last year.

RUNNING BACKS

Redshirt junior Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) led the team in rushing last year with 860 yards with six TDs, but would like to regain the form of 2011 when he rushed for over 1,000 yards and was a Freshman All-American. Redshirt sophomore Max DeLorenzo (Berlin, Conn.) showed moments of excellence last year and looks for more consistency. Sophomore Joseph Williams (Allentown, Pa.) played in nine

Kevin Friend Geremy Davis

Jimmy Bennett

games as a true freshman last year and will look to play an even bigger role this year. Redshirt senior Martin Hyppolite (Wakefield, Mass.) has worked hard to recover after being injured in a serious car accident in February and will look for playing time.

FULLBACK

Redshirt junior Reuben Frank (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) was the starter at fullback last season but has been moved to defensive end, so redshirt freshman Jazzmar Clax (Freehold, N.J.) enters preseason camp tops on the depth chart. He is backed up by redshirt freshman James Horan (Rockaway, N.J.).

WIDE RECEIVERS

The Huskies return their top two receivers from last season in redshirt juniors Geremy Davis (Lawrenceville, Ga.) and Skakim Phillips (Paterson, N.J.). Davis made 44 receptions for 613 yards while Phillips had 32 receptions for 399 yards in 2012. Phillips came on strong at the end of the season and had 14 receptions in the final three games of the year. Other experienced wide receivers include junior Kamal Abrams (Dover, Del.) and junior Deshon Foxx (Lynchburg, Va.). Pushing all of them and eager for playing time are redshirt freshmen John Greene (Miami, Fla.) and two freshman that came in for spring ball in 2013 – Dhameer Bradley (New Castle, Del.) and Noel Thomas (Norwalk, Conn.).

2013 Huskies Football Media Guide

OFFENSIVE LINE

UConn has good experience returning this spring on the offensive line – a unit that is key for improved production in 2013. Sixthyear senior Jimmy Bennett (Alexandria, Va.) was granted a sixth year of eligibility after an injury-filled career and is back after starting all 12 games at left tackle in ’12. Redshirt junior Steve Greene (Edensburg, Pa.) is back after starting all of 2012 at left guard and redshirt senior Kevin Friend (Warrentown, Va.) has started 23 games over the last two years and all 12 at right tackle last year. Redshirt junior Guz Cruz (Manchester, N.H.) started five games at right guard in 2012, including the last four while redshirt senior Tyler Bullock (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) started the final eight games at center. There will be plenty of others looking to push this group in redshirt freshmen Kyle Bockeloh (Houston, Texas), Richard Levy (Trenton, N.J.) and Zach Rugg (Windber, Pa.) and sophomore Tyler Samra (Wycoff, N.J.). Also looking for playing time are redshirt sophomores Dalton Gifford (Fairhaven, Mass.), Xavier Hemingway (Powder Springs, Ga.) and Paul Nwokeji (Randolph, Mass.) and redshirt junior Bryan Paull (Parkland, Fla.). Redshirt junior Alex Mateas (Ottawa, Ont.) started the first four games of 2012 and will also be in the mix.

TIGHT END

The tight end spot is wide open with the loss of seniors Ryan Griffin and John Delahunt. Look for redshirt sophomore Sean McQuillan (Glastonbury, Conn.) to get a long look there along with redshirt senior Spencer Parker (Newington, Conn.)

Julian Campenni

Jesse Joseph

DEFENSE

Unlike the offense, there will have to be plenty of new faces on defense. Among the Husky losses there are four career starters who all selected in the 2013 NFL draft – defensive tackle Trevardo Williams, linebacker Sio Moore and cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

DEFENSIVE LINE

On the defensive line, UConn also loses the graduated Ryan Wirth, who started each game last year. Redshirt senior Shamar Stephen (Brookville, N.J.) has the most experience on the line and has 70 career tackles. Redshirt senior Jesse Joseph (Laval, Qu.) only played in three games last season before being lost to injury but has 118 career tackles in 37 games. Redshirt sophomore Julian Campenni (West Pittson, Pa.) started two games last season and was a consistent part of the rotation. A number of Huskies will have the opportunity to play here in: sophomore Elijah Norris (Upper Marlboro, Md.), redshirt senior Tim Willman (Fulton, Md.), redshirt junior B.J. McBryde (Beaver Falls, Pa.), redshirt junior Angelo Pruitt (Cincinnati, Ohio) and redshirt sophomore Kenton Adeyemi (Wethersfield, Conn.). Redshirt freshmen Mikal Myers (Newburgh, N.Y.), Brendan Battles-Santos (Eastham, Mass.), Andreas Knappe (Silkeborg, Denmark) and Sean Marinan (Higganum, Conn.) will look for their first college playing time.

LINEBACKERS

In addition to Moore, UConn also lost steady starter Jory Johnson from last year’s team at linebacker. Redshirt junior Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) emerged as a defensive force last season and is the top returnee at LB. He is a nominee for virtually every preseason National Defensive Player of the

Byron Jones

Year Award. One of the top stories will be the progress of redshirt sophomore Graham Stewart (Durham, Conn.), who sat out last year as a transfer from Florida. Also competing for time at LB will be redshirt sophomore Jefferson Ashiru (Powder Springs, Ga.), redshirt senior Ryan Donohue (Montvale, N.J.), redshirt junior Brandon Steg (Coral Springs, Fla.) and redshirt sophomore Marquise Vann (Cincinnati, Ohio) plus redshirt freshmen Jon Hicks (Palmyra, Pa.) and Omaine Stephens (East Orange, N.J.).

SECONDARY

The most defensive experience returns in the secondary with redshirt junior Byron Jones (New Britain, Conn.) and safety Ty-Meer Brown (McKeesport, Pa.), who both started all 12 games last year. Jones has been moved to cornerback this spring. Senior Taylor Mack (Powder Springs, Ga.) brings a great deal of experience back to the secondary and redshirt sophomore Andrew Adams (Fayetteville, Ga.) earned a letter last year at safety. At cornerback, redshirt sophomores David Stevenson (Stone Mountain, Ga.) and Tyree Shamar Stephen Clark (Tampa,

2013 Huskies Football Media Guide


201 3 S eason P r e v i e w Fla.), sophomore Kenrick Mattison (Bloomfield, Conn.) and redshirt freshman Jhavon Williams (Wellington, Fla.) will all look for playing time. Safeties include: redshirt freshmen Jordan Floyd (Bel Air, Md.), Obi Melifonwu (South Grafton, Mass.) and Ellis Marder (Windermere, Fla.) and redshirt sophomore Wilbert Lee (Brooklyn, N.Y.). Redshirt sophomore Jeremy Claflin (West Hartford, Conn.) is also in the mix here.

SPECIAL TEAMS

UConn is solid on special teams with redshirt senior kicker Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) returning for his second year as the starter while classmate Cole Wagner (York, Pa.) is among the top career punters in Husky history. Sophomore Bobby Puyol (North Palm Beach, Fla.) saw action in the last game of 2012 when Christen was hurt while redshirt freshman Justin Wain (Wilmington, N.C.) is also at punter. Redshirt sophomore Dominick Manco (Lagrangeville, N.Y.) and redshirt junior Adam Mueller (Park Ridge, Ill.) are both back at long snapper.

Mike Foley

Mike Foley Tight Ends A veteran of northeastern football coaching, Mike Foley enters his eighth season on the UConn staff and his second year 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. In his first season working with the tight ends in 2012, Ryan Griffin earned All-BIG EAST second team honors and he and John Delahunt combined to be one of the more effective tight ends duos in school history. Griffin was selected by the Houston Texans in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Foley and his offensive line were 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. Foley helped coach all seven of Colgate’s NCAA Playoff squads, including the 2003 team that advanced to the National Championship Game. 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. The Foleys: Mike and Kathleen. campus in 1997 as offensive coordinator and line coach after three years on the Harvard staff. 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. A three-year starter at center, he was twice honored as an All-East performer by the Associated Press and, in 1977, was also named to the ECAC All-East squad. In 2004, Foley was inducted into Colgate’s Athletic Hall of Honor. Foley was born in Kittery, Maine, but grew up in Newburyport, Mass. He graduated from Colgate University in 1978 with a degree in economics. Foley and his wife, Kathleen, have two grown children, Erin and Patrick. A football coach like his father, Patrick is the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Colgate.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – University of Connecticut redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer threw for 219 yards and Connecticut scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams to beat Massachusetts 37-0 Thursday night before a crowd of 35,270 at Rentschler Field in the opener for both teams. Connecticut’s defense dominated the game, holding UMass to just 59 yards of offense and limiting the Minutemen to three first downs. UMass did not have an offensive snap in UConn territory and the three UMass first downs tied a Husky school record for the least allowed. Redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 82 yards and a firstquarter touchdown, one of two by the offense. UConn also scored on a 37-yard interception return by redshirt senior cornerback Dwayne Gratz and on a blocked punt. Redshirt junior Chad Christen added field goals of 36, 47 and 19 yards for his first collegiate scores. This was the 72nd meeting between the two programs but the first since 1999, when both teams were Division I-AA. Whitmer, a transfer who threw for more than 3,000 yards in junior college last year, completed 15 of his 25 passes, but also threw two interceptions in his first game as a FBS starter. He hit his first three passes, including a 16-yarder to senior Nick Williams that set up the Huskies’ first score, a one-yard plunge by McCombs that capped a 12-play, 75-yard drive. Williams, who had more than 140 yards of total offense, returned the next UMass punt 34 yards, setting up UConn on the UMass 30. But safety Darren Thellen stopped the UConn drive – and made a few highlight shows – by diving out of bounds and tipping a Whitmer pass back to linebacker Tom Brandt, who made his first career interception. UConn had 372 yards of offense, but had three drives end with turnovers deep in UMass territory. Whitmer split time with redshirt sophomore Scott McCummings, who ran UConn’s version of the “Wildcat” offense. McCummings ran for 13 yards and a one-yard fourth-quarter touchdown that put UConn up 34-0. The defense got into the scoring column when Gratz stepped in front of UMass receiver Marken Michel and returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown with 1:49 left in the first half. The special teams got their score with just over four minutes left in the third quarter. UConn’s Taylor Mack blocked a punt after Colter Johnson dropped the snap, and the Huskies’ Max DeLorenzo recovered in the end zone to give UConn a 27-0 lead. UMass never got its offense started, averaging just over 1 yard per play, and failing to get a first down until just 34 seconds before halftime. Senior defensive end Trevardo Williams (Bridgeport, Conn.), who had 12.5 sacks a year ago, got his first of the season late in the third quarter, one of two sacks by the Huskies on the day. The game was the first between Football Bowl Subdivision programs from New England since 2004, when UConn played Boston College.

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

Kalamazoo, Mich. – Western Michigan quarterback Alex Carder threw for 237 yards and a touchdown to lead Western Michigan to a 30-24 win over the University of Connecticut on Saturday before a crowd of 10,328 at Waldo Stadium. Both teams are now 2-2 on the season. Carder completed 18 of 34 passes before leaving the game late in the third quarter after hitting his throwing hand on a helmet. Josh Schaffer caught six of Carder’s passes for 104 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown early in the third quarter that put Western Michigan ahead 24-7. UConn redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer was 28 of 44 for 333 yards passing and three touchdowns for Connecticut. Redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 119 yards while redshirt sophomore Geremy Davis caught nine passes for 123 yards for the Huskies. Connecticut pulled within 24-17 on a two-yard pass from Whitmer to John Delahunt and a 32-yard field goal from Chad Christen midway through the fourth quarter. But on the Huskies’ next drive, Desmond Bozeman returned a Whitmer fumble 53 yards for a touchdown. It was the Broncos’ first fumble recovery for a touchdown in three years. The score also pushed Western Michigan past the 10,000-point total in team history. Whitmer added a seven-yard TD pass to Davis with 54 seconds to play, but the Broncos recovered the onside kick. Antoin Scriven scored from one yard out early in the second quarter to cap an 88-yard drive and give Western Michigan a 10-0 lead. It marked his ninth career touchdown, all on one-yard runs. The Broncos followed that with a 36-yard drive capped by Dareyon Chance’s nine-yard run for a 17-point lead. Chance led Western Michigan with 66 yards rushing. The Huskies finally got on the scoreboard with 2:36 left in the first half on Whitmer’s 9-yard pass to redshirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin. Donald Celiscar’s interception at the three-yard line stopped a UConn drive midway in the first quarter. UConn had a 425-330 advantage in total yards. This marked the first appearance at Western Michigan for a BIG EAST opponent. The start of the game was delayed by a half-hour because of lightning storms in the area.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Running backs Lyle McCombs and Martin Hyppolite combined for 157 yards rushing and two touchdowns to lead the University of Connecticut football team to a 24-17 win over Buffalo on Saturday before a crowd of 34,666 at Rentschler Feld. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer, who completed passes to eight different receivers, threw for 227 yards and another score as UConn opened up a 24-7 lead in the third quarter and held on to win. Buffalo, which was playing without injured running back Branden Oliver, had the ball with a chance to tie late in the game, but failed to convert on fourth down at its own 39 yard line. Quarterback Alex Zordich threw for 220 yards and ran for 76 to lead the Bulls. McCombs, UConn’s 166-pound tailback was the Huskies workhorse, carrying the ball 29 times for 97 yards. His two-yard fourth-down touchdown run gave the Huskies a 24-7 lead with just over five minutes left in the third quarter. But Buffalo went into its bag of tricks to pull within 24-14. Zordich completed a four-yard pass to Alex Neutz in the right flat, who then pitched the ball to running back Brandon Murie. He raced down the right sideline, breaking a Byron Jones’ tackle on the way to a 50-yard touchdown. The Bulls got within a touchdown on a 44-yard field goal by Patrick Clarke with 2:23 left after a 43 yard pass from Zordich to Neutz. UConn redshirt sophomore wide receiver Geremy Davis recovered the onside kick, but UConn punted it away three plays later giving Buffalo one more chance to tie. The Bulls took the ball at their own 20 and managed one first down. But Zordich was stuffed by redshirt sophomore linebacker Yawin Smallwood after a two-yard gain on a fourth-and-four from the 39, and the Huskies ran out the clock. Connecticut had big plays on back-to-back drives in the first half to take a 17-7 lead. Tight end Ryan Griffin’s 36-yard catch and run over the middle on the first play of the second quarter capped a 10-play 92-yard drive that gave the Huskies a 10-7 lead. The Huskies then went 75 yards in five plays the next time they had the ball. Hyppolite, who had just four carries coming into the game, took a pitchout on his fifth and went 50 yards off the right side for the Huskies second touchdown. Connecticut moved the ball well from the opening kickoff. A 24-yard pass from Whitmer to senior wide receiver Nick Williams set up a 29-yard field goal by redshirt senior Chad Christen that gave the Huskies a 3-0 lead. Buffalo responded with a 10 play, 75-yard drive that included a 30-yard screen pass to Devin Campbell on a fourth down that set up Murie’s 4-yard touchdown run. The Bulls special teams then stepped up, executing a successful onside kick, before the offense stalled. UConn came in ranked fifth in the nation against the rush, allowing just 51 yards per game, but gave up 141 to the Bulls. Buffalo came into the game giving up 34 points a game.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – It just didn’t look like anything was improving on Saturday when the Huskies ran into 22nd-ranked Rutgers and absorbed a 19-3 setback in their BIG EAST opener. The focus has been to improve the running game, but it was tougher early on when Whitmer and his teammates began the game without top running back Lyle McCombs, who sat for the first quarter for breaking team rules earlier in the week. Playing against a Rutgers team that leads the nation in rush defense, UConn wound up with 53 yards on 28 attempts, led by McCombs with 32 yards on 12 attempts. He came in averaging 90.4 yards per game. Despite all its offensive woes, which included five turnovers, the Huskies might have pulled off the upset if it had taken advantage of its opportunities. Shamar Stephen blocked a Rutgers field goal attempt in the second quarter, which led to the Huskies only points, a 19-yard field goal by Chad Christen. It was the first blocked field goal by UConn since 2004. The Scarlet Knights (5-0, 2-0 BIG EAST) are off to their best start since 2006, and they avenged a bitter loss to the Huskies that ended last regular season and kept Rutgers from sharing the conference title. Jawan Jamison ran it 28 times and recorded his sixth straight 100-yard game and Gary Nova hooked up with Mark Harrison on a 14-yard touchdown pass early in the third quarter. Warren put it away with 3:44 left in the fourth when he grabbed a pass down the middle from Chandler Whitmer, and then darted through wouldbe-tacklers toward the end zone. Warren pushed across the goal line with some help from his teammates. UConn benched McCombs for the first quarter. He finished with 32 yards on 12 carries and the Huskies (3-3, 0-1) were held to their worst scoring output since getting shut out by Louisville in the middle of the 2010 season. Rutgers has won six of the last eight meetings, but lost last year’s game 40-22. Linebackers Khaseem Greene and Steve Beauharnais were all over UConn’s runners, and the Huskies couldn’t keep Rutgers blitzes from forcing Whitmer to hurry his throws. Greene also had an interception late in the fourth quarter. Rutgers chipped away offensively with Jamison running tough against a defense that had only been allowing 74 yards per game on the ground. Nova rarely went downfield but finished 18 for 27 for 157 yards. The Scarlet Knights’ first drive of the second half was the best of the game for either team, an 84-yarder on nine plays, highlighted by Jamison’s 28-yard run and capped when Harrison slipped a couple of tacklers and reached into the end zone with 9:09 left to make it 13-3. Rutgers turned two first-quarter turnovers by UConn into two field goals by Kyle Federico in a span of 3:15. UConn put together one solid drive in the first half, going 43 yards on 10 plays behind the running of McCombs and backup quarterback Scott McCummings. The drive stalled inside the 5 and Chad Christen kicked a 19-yard field goal to make it 6-3.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Temple senior kicker Brandon McManus hit a 29-yard field goal in overtime as the Owls, who trailed for over 59 minutes Saturday, came from behind to beat the University of Connecticut football team by a 17-14 score before a Homecoming crowd of 37,279 at Rentschler Field. Temple senior running back Montel Harris ran 30 times for 142 yards and a touchdown for the Owls. UConn was held to just two first-quarter touchdowns. UConn redshirt junior kicker Chad Christen missed four field goal attempts, including a 28-yarder on UConn’s overtime possession. Husky redshirt sophomore Chandler Whitmer threw for 293 yards and both of UConn’s scores and redshirt freshman running back Max DeLorenzo had 91 yards rushing for the Huskies in his first career start. Temple trailed until sophomore Jalen Fitzpatrick caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Chris Coyer with 19 seconds in regulation. The touchdown was set up by a 33-yard catch on the left sideline by junior Deon Miller on a third-and-13 from the UConn 47, which followed a 13-yard catch by Harris on a fourth down that moved the ball into UConn territory. Temple had failed on fourth down on two other fourth-quarter drives. Christen had a chance to secure the win for UConn, but his 45-yard field-goal attempt with just under three minutes to play was blocked. He had missed earlier from 38 and 42 yards. Whitmer completed 10 of his first 12 passes, including a 15-yard strike over the middle to Mike Smith for a touchdown that gave the Huskies a 7-0 lead. On his next drive, he found redshirt senior tight end Ryan Griffin over the middle for a 42-yard score. Whitmer completed 22 of 39 passes for 293 yards and no interceptions. He had thrown four interceptions at Rutgers and came in with 10 on the season and just four touchdown passes. Coyer, who threw for just 132 yards, also ran for 51 for the Owls. The Huskies kept Temple pinned in its own territory for most of the first half. The Owls managed just eight yards and one first down on their first four possessions. But they had 113 on their next two. Harris broke a 37-yard run and a 24-yarder for a touchdown to cut the deficit to 14-7. The Owls were driving again before Harris was stripped of the ball by linebacker redshirt sophomore Yawin Smallwood at Connecticut’s 26-yard line. The Huskies managed just 88 rushing yards. The win gave Temple coach Steve Addazio a victory over his mentor. UConn’s Paul Pasqualoni was the head coach at Western Connecticut and hired Addazio to his first assistant coaching job there in 1985. The win gave Temple its first road win of the season. The Huskies came in ranked sixth in the nation in total defense, giving up just over 82 yards per game on the ground.

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

TAMPA, Fla. – USF senior quarterback B.J. Daniels ran for a firstquarter touchdown before leaving in the fourth with an injury as USF stopped a school-record six-game losing streak by beating the University of Connecticut football team by a 13-6 score on Saturday night before a crowd of 36,190 at Raymond James Stadium. Both teams are now 3-6 on the season while UConn is 0-4 in BIG EAST play while the Bulls are 1-4 in the conference. Daniels was hurt on a 15-yard run inside the UConn 10 just over five minutes into the fourth. The senior quarterback couldn’t put any weight on his left leg as he was helped from the field. The Bulls settled for a 28-yard field goal by Maikon Bonani later in the drive to take a 10-6 advantage. Bonani added a 50-yard kick to extend the lead to 13-6 with four and a half minutes left. South Florida had dropped 12 of its last 13 BIG EAST games dating to November 2010. The Bulls squandered a 20-point halftime lead en route to a 37-36 loss to Syracuse on Nov. 27. UConn senior kicker Chad Christen had two field goals for UConn. Daniels put the Bulls up 7-0 on a 5-yard TD run with 4:08 left in the first. He set a school record for career rushing touchdowns with 25 on the score. UConn got within 7-3 when Christen made a 50-yard field goal two seconds before halftime. His second field goal of the game, from 37 yards with 4:28 to go in the third, made it 7-6. The Huskies had failed to score during the second half in their previous three games. USF threatened to extend its early lead midway through the second, but UConn redshirt senior cornerback Dwayne Gratz intercepted Daniels’ pass in the end zone. South Florida was the only FBS team in the nation without an interception until safety Jon Lejiste picked off redshirt sophomore Chandler Whitmer’s pass at the USF 10 with 6:27 remaining in the game. A late UConn drive ended with 50 seconds to go when Elkino Watson intercepted a Whitmer pass. Whitmer has thrown 13 interceptions this season.

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

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Connecticut redshirt senior cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson knew the ball would eventually come his way. The Connecticut cornerback just wanted to make sure he was in the right position to make a play. Wilson’s first interception of the season came in the third overtime Saturday and helped the Huskies upset No. 19 Louisville by a 23-20 score before a crowd of 45,618 at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. On third and goal from Connecticut’s five, Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater looked for DeVante Parker in the end zone. His pass was slightly behind his receiver and Wreh-Wilson, one of the top cornerbacks in the country, read it perfectly to make the pickoff. Four plays later, UConn redshirt junior Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) kicked a 30-yard field goal to give the Huskies their second-straight win. The win for the Huskies was just the second in program history over a ranked team and the first since a win over USF in 2007. Louisville fell to 9-2 overall and 4-2 in the BIG EAST. UConn senior quarterback Johnny McEntee relieved injured redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer in the fourth quarter and threw a three-yard touchdown pass to redshirt sophomore Shakim Phillips in the second OT. Redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 133 yards on 29 carries and senior Nick Williams scored on a three-yard run to put the Huskies up 10-0. Christen gave Connecticut its first lead with a 39-yard field goal in the first quarter. Bridgewater finished 30 of 53 passing for 331 yards and two touchdowns. He was sacked four times along with the game-changing interception. Louisville gained 27 yards rushing. For Connecticut, that was nothing new. The Huskies entered the game with the nation’s ninth-ranked defense and was No. 11 against the run at 108 yards allowed per game. They applied those strengths early and often against the Cardinals, who had the conference’s top scoring offense. Louisville was outgained 160-88 in the first half while being shut out for the first time since Pittsburgh did it here a year ago. The Huskies took advantage of their limited offensive opportunities. After two three-and-out drives, Connecticut moved 51 yards in eight plays to set up Christen’s 39-yard field goal. Two drives later it was 10-0 as the Huskies drove 66 yards in 10 plays ending in Williams’ three-yard TD run. The lead stood until Bridgewater’s return inspired the Cardinals late in the third quarter. After John Wallace’s 19-yard field goal early in the fourth, Bridgewater directed a 92-yard, 13-play drive kept alive by a 28-yard pass to Eli Rogers and a nine-yarder to Wright for first down at the Huskies’ 26. A 14-yard pass to Wright and a face mask foul penalty on Connecticut set up first-and-goal at the six, and Bridgewater found a wide-open Parker in the end zone.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Cincinnati quarterback Brandon Kay threw two touchdown passes to Travis Kelce, and caught one from the big tight end on a trick play, as the Bearcats beat the University of Connecticut football team by 34-17 on Saturday before a crowd of 33,112 at Rentschler Field. The win gave Cincinnati a final regular season record of 9-3 and was 5-2 in the BIG EAST to gain a share of the league championship with Louisville, Rutgers and Syracuse. Kelce caught five balls for 69 yards and the two scores while Kay completed 19 of his 29 passes for 245 yards and the two scores. UConn redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer threw for 264 yards and a touchdown for UConn, before leaving the game with a head injury in the third quarter. Kay hit Kelce for a 25-yard touchdown on the Bearcats’ opening drive, one of three passes of at least 25 yards during the six-play, 76-yard march. Kelce returned the favor to Kay in the second quarter. An interception return by Chris Williams set the Bearcats up on the UConn 39. On first down, Kelce took a backward screen pass from Kay and threw the ball back across the field to his quarterback, who ran down the right side for a touchdown that made it 14-0. Connecticut senior tight end Ryan Griffin got the Huskies into the game in the second quarter with a 74-yard TD catch. He caught the ball on the UConn 35 and outran the Bearcats’ defense, diving into the end zone after almost being tripped up at the six-yard line by Deven Drane to make it 14-10 at the half. UConn freshman kicker Bobby Puyol made the first field goal of his career, a 40-yarder to give the Huskies their first points. That was set up when Whitmer found redshirt senior wide receiver Michael Smith open over the middle for a 51-yard pass from the UConn 24-yard line. UConn’s regular kicker, junior Chad Christen, sat out the game with a hip injury. Whitmer started for UConn despite being knocked out of last week’s win over Louisville with a head injury. He left this game in the third quarter after taking a shot from Greg Blair on a trick play and hitting his head on the turf. Senior walk-on quarterback Johnny McEntee replaced Whitmer and completed the 15-play, 69-yard drive which ended with a one-yard touchdown plunge by redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs. It was the first second-half touchdown in a BIG EAST game for UConn this season and brought the Huskies to within four at 21-17. McCombs finished with 21 carries for 60 yards. A bad pass by McEntee that was intercepted by Drane set up another Bearcats touchdown, a four-yard run by George Winn, his 12th touchdown this season. That came after Tony Miliano had made it a seven-point game, hitting a 38-yard field goal with 12 minutes left. His 42-yarder with six minutes left put a bow on the game. McEntee finished with 73 yards passing and two interceptions. Winn finished with just 70 yards rushing after coming in averaging 105 yards per game and 5.5 yards per carry. He had just eight yards at the half.

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.

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.

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.

2010

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 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.

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.

TEAM STATISTICS

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.

Wake Forest took the opening possession of the second half and marched for a touchdown on a six-play, 66-yard drive. Josh Adams scored the touchdown on a 38-yard run 2:16 into the half. The Demon Deacons took the lead for good on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Skinner to John Tereshinski on a third-and-14 play. Wake Forest made it 17-10 on a 43-yard field goal 3:07 into the final quarter by Sam Swank. The Demon Deacons sealed the win with a TD run by Micah Andrews in the final minute. UConn was severely limited in the second half on offense as the Huskies had just 73 total yards of offense while the Deacons had 275. UConn’s Tyler Lorenzen was 13-of-26 in the air for 98 yards. Donald Brown led UConn in rushing with 13 carries for 72 yards. Brad Kanuch was the leading Husky receiver with three receptions for 36 yards. Wake Forest senior wide receiver Kenny Moore was named the game’s MVP as he made 11 receptions for 112 yards. UConn scored all 10 of its points in the first half. Larry Taylor scored the only touchdown of the first half when he returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown with 2:38 left in the first quarter. Ironically, Taylor had a 68-yard punt return for a TD in UConn’s only other bowl game – a win over Toledo in the 2004 Motor City Bowl – which came with 2:31 left in the first quarter down the near (UConn) sideline running to the camera’s right. The only other first half points came with 5:00 left in the second quarter as Tony Ciaravino connected on a 29-yard field goal that finished an eight-play, 80-yard drive. That drive was highlighted by a 58-yard run by Brown on the first play of the drive.

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.

DONALD BROWN BECOMES THIRD HUSKY TO PLAY IN THE SUPER BOWL Former Husky AllAmerican running back Donald Brown became the third UConn alumnus to play in the Super Bowl in February of 2010 when the rookie helped the Indianapolis Colts win the AFC championship. In addition, former Husky quarterback Tyler Lorenzen was on the practice squad for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. Brian Kozlowski became the second Husky to play in a Super Bowl with the Atlanta Falcons in January of 1999. Kozlowski was the starting fullback for the AFC Champions. Nick Giaquinto, who played at UConn from 1975-76, participated in two Super Bowls with the Washington Redskins. He played in Super Bowl XVII in 1982 which the Redskins won and Super Bowl XVIII. In the Super Bowl in February of 2011, Donald Thomas was on the New England Patriots active roster but did not dress for the game and Williams Beatty was on the New York Giants roster but was not active because of an injury.

UConn and th e CFL

UConn And The Canadian Football League The University of Connecticut has a long tradition of sending players to the Canadian Football League – both Canadian natives as “non-import” players and natives of the United States. That tradition continued in 2012 as five former Huskies were in the CFL. Two former Huskies – Jordan Younger and Danny Desriveaux – played for the 2012 Grey Cup Champion Toronto Argonauts. Younger is a veteran of the league as 2012 was his 12th season while Desriveaux was in his sixth. Younger has played 11 of his 12 seasons with Toronto. Tight end Martin Bedard is now a five-year member of the Montreal Argonauts and the team was the Grey Cup Champions in 2009 and 2001. Montreal played in the Grey Cup championship game in 2012. Larry Taylor is a five-year veteran of the league and now plays for the Calgary Stampeders. He was with Montreal from 2008-10 and won a pair of Grey Cup titles. He was the 2009 CFL Special Teams Player of the Year. As a rookie in 2008, he returned two punts for a touchdown in the East Division final games vs. Edmonton. Julius Williams, who played at UConn through 2008, played his second CFL season in 2012 and is with the Edmonton Eskimos. The following other Huskies have won Grey Cup titles:

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.

Di rector of Athl e t i cs Wa rde Manue l

Director of Athletics

Warde Manuel W

arde J. Manuel, who has had a distinguished career in intercollegiate athletics that ranges from being a student-athlete to a director of athletics, became the Director of Athletics in March of 2011. Manuel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Michigan where he played both football and track and field, has most recently been the Director of Athletics at the University at Buffalo for six years. His first academic year of 2012-13 was a highly successful one for UConn teams, highlighted by the women’s basketball team winning the NCAA Championship. In addition, UConn teams from men’s soccer, field hockey and baseball all took part in NCAA tournament play while the women’s diving and men’s and women’s track and field programs were all represented in NCAA individual championships. Manuel also directed UConn’s acceptance into membership of Hockey East, the nation’s premier men’s ice hockey conference, as the Huskies begin play in the league in 2014-15. Ground was broken for the UConn Basketball Development Center in the spring of 2013 and the facility will open in 2014 to service both the Huskies’ men’s and women’s championship basketball teams. Manuel oversaw a coaching transition in men’s basketball with the retirement of Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun and the hiring of former Husky student-athlete, NBA player and UConn assistant coach Kevin Ollie. Manuel also hired new head coaches for the UConn men’s and women’s ice hockey programs. The UConn Division of Athletics once again had an outstanding rate performance in the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) in 2013 as the men’s basketball team posted a 947 as Manuel has helped develop a comprehensive academic plan for all UConn programs. Each Husky team met the NCAA minimum requirement while most teams, a total of 20, scored 970 or better. In June of 2013, Manuel was one of 11 Division I ADs, who were named to Athletic Director Advisory Group to the NCAA leadership. The membership of this advisory group will meet periodically with NCAA leadership to provide feedback and perspective on issues that affect NCAA

2013 Huskies Football Media Guide

Division I members. Manuel has already become a key leader in the American Athletic Conference and has been named a member of the league’s Finance Committee. Manuel led a 20-sport program at Buffalo, an institution that is a member of the prestigious American Association of Universities. Buffalo enjoyed an unparalleled period of success during his time there from an athletic, academic and community service perspective. From an academic standpoint, teams at Buffalo enjoyed incredible academic success. When Manuel arrived at UB, there were four programs - football, men’s basketball, wrestling, and baseball - that fell far below the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) cut score of 925. With a focused academic plan, all four teams posted a four-year APR rate above the cut score and at the end of 2009-10, 10 of UB’s 20 sports had scores of 975 or above. Buffalo enjoyed great on-field success during Manuel’s time as the football team participated in the 2009 International Bowl and the men’s basketball team made postseason appearances in three of the past seven years. Olympic sports also thrived under Manuel’s leadership with accomplishments such as three-straight Dad Vail Regatta titles by the rowing team, six wrestlers earning spots at the 2011 NCAA Championship and the women’s tennis team making an appearance in the 2008 NCAA tournament. The sports of baseball and softball won a record number of games during his tenure and student-athletes earned All-American and allconference honors at record rates. Manuel was honored by Sports Business Journal as a 2008 national 40-Under-40 honoree after receiving the same honor from Business First of Buffalo in Fall of 2007. Manuel has served on a number of national and conference committees and boards. In September of 2011, he was one of only three Athletic Directors asked to serve on the Collegiate Model Rules committee, a working group of the Division I Committee on Academic Performance, charged with broad overview of the current NCAA Rules Manual. He also currently serves on the NCAA Division I Championships/ Sports Management Cabinet and served for four years as a member of the NCAA’s Academic Cabinet. During that time, he was selected as Chair of the NCAA Academic Eligibility & Compliance Transfer Ad Hoc Committee. He is a member of the Boards of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the D1A Athletic Directors Association. He also serves as a member of the Council of Presidents Budget & Finance Committee and served for three years as the Chair of the MidAmerican Conference Director of Athletics Finance Committee. In June of 2007, Manuel accepted the Opportunity Award by all-time tennis great Billie Jean King, as Buffalo was recognized by the Women’s Sports Foundation as one of four “standout” colleges and universities in the nation for outstanding achievement in providing equitable athletic opportunities for its female student-athletes. Prior to his time at Buffalo, he was the assistant and associate director of athletics for the University of Michigan, where he oversaw that school’s football and men’s basketball programs. In February 1998, he was named an assistant athletic director at Michigan with responsibilities for overseeing operational facets of the university’s athletic program. He was named an associate athletic director in September 2000. Born May 22, 1968, Manuel is a native of New Orleans, who was a high school All-American football player and played for the University of Michigan under its legendary coach, Bo Schembechler. Manuel earned multiple letters and started at defensive end in his sophomore year. His football career was cut short by a neck injury and he subsequently earned two letters on the Wolverines’ track and field team. After graduating from Michigan, Manuel was coordinator of the university’s Wade H. McCree, Jr., Incentive Scholars Program from June 1990 to August 1993. The program is a partnership with The President’s Council of State Universities and Detroit Public Schools that helps students prepare for higher education at public universities in Michigan. He subsequently worked briefly as an academic advisor with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association before being named assistant athletic director of academic affairs. In the course of working on a PhD in social work and psychology at Michigan, he earned a master’s degree in social work in 1993 and an MBA from Michigan’s Ross School of Business in April 2005. Manuel and his wife, Chrislan, have a daughter, Emma (18), who is entering her sophomore year at UConn, and a son, Evan (14).

Close to Storrs In addition to all that the city of Hartford and the state of Connecticut has to offer, the region within two hours of Storrs is ripe with cultural and entertainment possibilities. SPRINGFIELD (47 miles) The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is located less than an hour from Storrs in Springfield, Mass., just minutes from the YMCA where Dr. James Naismith invented the game in 1891. A must-see for any fan of the hardwood, the Hall of Fame reopened in the fall of 2002 in a $45 million home just off of Interstate 91 in Springfield. The pinnacle of any basketball career, the hall’s long list of inductees now includes UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun, a 2005 inductee, and women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma, a 2006 inductee. Once you finish your tour of the Hall of Fame, Springfield’s neighboring suburb of Agawam is the home of Six Flags New England, the region’s largest amusement park.

NEW YORK CITY (142 miles) The United States’ largest city and “the media capital of the world,” New York City is located approximately two hours from Storrs and offers a wide array of cultural opportunities. From the glitter of Times Square, to the vast expanse of Central Park, to the majestic skyline, New York City is an incomparable destination and one that can be easily reached by the Metro-North train lines that run into southern Connecticut. UConn students also enjoy the city’s active sporting landscape. The New York metro area also boasts 10 major professional sports franchises, including the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants, Major League Baseball’s New York Mets and Yankees, the NBA’s New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, the NHL’s New York Islanders, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils and the WNBA’s New York Liberty.

BOSTON (86 miles) The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston’s historic Freedom Trail is a living history textbook, covering everything from the Battle of Bunker Hill to the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Meanwhile, the city blends its old world charm with a cosmopolitan new world attitude that is evidenced by some of the trendier shops and restaurants that line both historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Back Bay’s Newbury Street. One of the world’s foremost centers of education, Boston is home to over 50 colleges and universities; perhaps the entire world’s most concentrated collection of colleges. The greater Boston area also includes the summer beach resorts on Cape Cod and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. A hub of sporting activity, the 2004 and 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox have called fabled Fenway Park home since 1912. The 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins also call Beantown home, while the 2002, 2004 and 2005 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots and MLS’ New England Revolution play outside of the city in Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium.

PROVIDENCE (51 miles) Rhode Island’s capital city shows that one of the nation’s smallest states also has plenty to offer its visitors. The multi-cultural capital city, which dates back to 1636, is the Ocean State’s centerpiece. The best known hamlet on the Rhode Island shore, the ocean town of Newport is world famous for its mansions and is a popular vacation destination for those seeking aquatic activities. Newport’s renowned music festival is also a well-attended annual event.

“The Husky Walk”

UConn fans get a chance to greet the Huskies as the team arrives at Rentschler Field for gameday. “The Husky Walk” takes places about two-and-a-half hours before each game as the UConn buses pull up to Gate D of the stadium and make their way to Gate C.

JONATHAN THE HUSKY MASCOT

The official mascot of the University of Connecticut is a Siberian Husky dog named Jonathan. Jonathan XIII made his debut on the Storrs campus in the winter of 2008 and made his Rentschler Field debut at the 2008 Blue-White Spring Football Game. He will be once again on hand for the ’13 season. The first Husky dog came to UConn in 1934 and the puppy was named for Jonathan Trumbull, the Governor of Connecticut during the Revolutionary War. The pedigree of Jonathan I was traced back to include a great-grandfather who traveled to the North Pole with Admiral Bryd in 1909. Jonathan III was with Admiral Byrd when he undertook “Operation High Jump” to the Antarctic in 1946-47. A costumed mascot has also gained popularity over the past several decades.

Fight Song Sing After each game at Rentschler Field, the entire UConn football team goes to the student section and sings “UConn Husky” with their fellow classmates with the music of the UConn Marching Band.

UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT ALMA MATER “UCONN HUSKY” FIGHT SONG “UConn Husky” is the fight song of the school. It was written in the mid-1930’s by Herb France, who was UConn’s Director of Music until the mid-1950’s. The song is widely known for its playing at different sporting events, but got “out of this world” attention in October 1989 when it was played aboard NASA’s Space Shuttle to wake up the shuttle astronauts. Among those astronauts on the mission was Franklin Chang-Diaz, a 1973 UConn graduate. UConn Husky Symbol of might to the foe. Fight, fight Connecticut, It’s victory, let’s go! Connecticut UConn Husky, Do it again for the white and blue,

So go, go, go, go, Connecticut, Connecticut U. C-O-N-N-E-C-T-I-C-U-T, Connecticut Connecticut Husky, Connecticut Husky, Connecticut C-O-N-N-U. Fight! (Repeat first verse)

Once more, as we gather today To sing our alma mater’s praise And join in the fellowship strong That inspires our college days. We’re backing our teams in the strife Cheering them to victory. We pledge anew To old Connecticut, Our steadfast spirit of loyalty.

When time shall have severed us far And the years their changes bring, The thought of the college we love In our memories will cling. For friendships that ever remain And associations dear We’ll raise a song To old Connecticut And join our voices in our long cheer

Connecticut, Connecticut Thy sons and daughters true Unite to honor thy name Our fairest white and blue.

Connecticut, Connecticut Thy sons and daughters true Unite to honor thy name Our fairest white and blue.

VICTORY BELL An enduring tradition of UConn football is the ringing of the Victory Bell after each UConn score. The bell was moved from the previous home of UConn football, Memorial Stadium, to its new home – Rentschler Field. After each score, the bell is rung once for each point UConn has scored in the game.

Rentschler Field S

ome college football teams play in stadiums that put fans so close to the action that the spectators feel like they can reach out and touch the players. These stadiums are intimate and are part of what has made college football special. Other stadiums are ultra-modern edifices that feature the latest in facilities such as luxurious suites and spacious locker rooms. The home of University of Connecticut football — Rentschler Field — happens to be both and the Huskies are celebrating the tenth anniversary of the stadium in 2013. Rentschler Field, located in East Hartford, opened on Aug. 30, 2003, as the Huskies defeated Big Ten Conference member Indiana, 34-10. Among the enhancements that will be new to the stadium in 2013 are a brand-new video board and ribbon boards that circle the stadium. UConn has now played 64 games in the facility over the past nine seasons and has posted an impressive 46-18 record at Rentschler Field – including perfect records in 2010 (6-0) and a 7-0 mark in 2007 to set a UConn single-season record for home wins. The Huskies have sold out 29 of their 64 Rentschler Field games, including a streak of 12 in a row. UConn has played to a 98 percent of capacity during its time there before a total of 2,361,541 fans. The building of the facility and its management was and is the result of incredible teamwork and dedication between the state’s

UConnHuskies.com

Office of Policy and Management, the town of East Hartford, United Technologies Corporation and the assistance from numerous public and private sector organizations. The result of this cooperation gives the people of Connecticut the opportunity to view college football at its highest level in a world-class facility. The natural grass playing surface of Rentschler Field is 26 feet below grade at the stadium and was resodded in the summer of 2011. Rentschler Field features stadium seating, outdoor chairback seating, fully enclosed club seats and luxury suites. The tower at Rentschler Field includes levels for suites, club seating and media/game management facilities. There are 38 suites in the stadium and more than 600 seats in the club area, which also includes a 12,000-square foot function area, which is used by club patrons on gameday and is available for meetings and social events the remainder of the year. The outdoor seating area of Rentschler Field includes nearly 4,000 chairback seats with the rest being bleacher seating. Rentschler Field is unique in the fact that it has handicap accessible seating on the field level. The media facilities are some of the most modern in the country with seating for 125 media members in the main press area. There are also separate booths for television and radio broadcasts. That level also includes booths for coaching staffs, security, public address announcer, scoreboard operation and other gameday facilities.

The various East Hartford area non-profit groups that staff the concession stands on game days are able to generate approximately $65,000 on an annual basis through their work at the games. Rentschler Field is also the home of the Connecticut High School Coaches Hall of Fame, which is located on the southwest concourse.

The stadium was developed by the State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management. The facility was designed by the architectural firm Ellerbe Becket and the construction manager was Hunt/Gilbane joint venture. The primary tenant at Rentschler Field, which is operated by Bushnell Management Services, LLC, is the UConn football program. In addition to UConn football, the stadium also played host to a pair of Bruce Springsteen concerts on Sept. 16 and 18, 2003, a concert by the Rolling Stones on Aug. 26, 2005 and the Police on July 31, 2007. It also served as the home of the annual Governors’ Cup High School All-Star game between Connecticut and Rhode Island and now the Military Bowl, which matches the top high school seniors in the state of Connecticut. Rentschler Field has played host to college lacrosse games while international rugby matches have been played in the summers of 2004, ’05 and ‘08. The facility has become a mainstay in soccer. An exhibition soccer game between the British teams of Liverpool and Glasgow Celtic was played on July 26, 2004; an exhibition women’s soccer match between the United States and China on Aug. 1, 2004; a men’s World Cup qualifying match between the United States and Trinidad and Tobago was played on Aug. 17, 2005; the United States men’s national team playing their final tuneup before 2006 World Cup against Latvia on May 28, 2006; an exhibition women’s soccer match between the United States and Norway on July 14, 2007; a World Cup sendoff match between the United States and the Czech Republic on May 25, 2010; an exhibition women’s soccer match between the United States and Sweden on July 17, 2010; an CONCACAF Gold Cup doubleheader (United States vs. Costa Rica, Cuba vs. Belize) on July 16, 2013.

Rentsch le r F i e l d In February of 2011, Whalers Hockey Fest was held at Rentschler Field as an ice rink was set up on the surface. The tenday event hosted numerous hockey games, including a doubleheader which featured both the UConn men’s and women’s ice hockey teams. Rentschler Field also served as the home of the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League in 2009 and ’10. UConn received the Governor’s Leadership Award in December of 2003 for its efforts in the first year of play at Rentschler Field. The annual award is given to an individual or group that had done an outstanding job in bringing together a wide spectrum of people and resources to bear on a significant development issue in Connecticut. UConn was cited for working hard to assure that Rentschler Field was a significant economic resource for the greater Hartford region and a point of pride for the high quality of life in the area that business leaders seek. The 75-acre site for the stadium was donated by United Technologies and sits on a former airfield — Rentschler Field — which opened in 1931 and saw the likes of Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart. In addition to the donation of the land for the sta-

dium, UTC is allowing another 100 acres of its land to be used for gameday parking. There is a display on the history of the site as an airfield in the stadium. The “original” Rentschler Field was dedicated on May 24, 1931. The company air field served as a base for experimental flight tests of airplanes, engines and propellers and was also used for servicing and overhauling engines. In later years the airfield was used for general aviation for United Aircraft Corporation — now United Technologies Corporation. The field was de-commissioned as an active airport in the 1990s.

Sports Museum

J. R obert D onnelly H usky H eritage

Sports Museum T he sights and sounds of more than a century of intercollegiate athletics competition come alive during a visit to the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum. Located in the UConn Alumni Center in the heart of the University of Connecticut’s main campus in Storrs, the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is the ultimate library documenting the wide-ranging successes of Connecticut’s athletic programs. The state-of-the-art design and layout of the 2,700 square foot Husky Heritage Sports Museum, named after benefactor and 1940 Connecticut basketball and football captain J. Robert (Bob) Donnelly (shown above with wife M.J.), vividly captures all of the energy, excitement and enthusiasm that is associated with “Huskymania”. Donnelly passed away on Sept. 26, 2005. The visitors’ UConn experience begins with the University of Connecticut “National Champions” Gallery. This unique museum addition, located in the entrance foyer of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, was unveiled in December of 2004 and will serve as a permanent tribute to all University of Connecticut varsity teams that climbed to the mountaintop and earned the right to be called National Champions. Currently, a total of 14 national champion squads, representing four different UConn sports, have team photos and national championship logos on display in the National Champions gallery. Included in the National Champions Gallery is the unbeaten 1948 men’s soccer team of Coach John Squires, the 1981 and 1985 UConn women’s field hockey teams of Coach Diane Wright, the 1981 men’s soccer team of Coach Joe Morrone, the 2000 men’s soccer team of Coach Ray Reid, the eight national championship women’s basketball teams of Coach Geno Auriemma (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2010, 2013), and the 1999, 2004 and 2011 UConn men’s basketball teams of Coach Jim Calhoun. Upon entering the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, visitors are greeted by a full figure statue of Jonathan, the legendary mascot of all Husky athletic teams. Oversized banners proudly hang from the ceiling, displaying action images that feature 88 of Connecticut’s All-American stars representing 17 different intercollegiate sports. A tour of the various sections of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is a walk down memory lane for long-time followers of Connecticut athletics. For fans just becoming acquainted with UConn’s tradition of excellence, the various themes and areas of the museum, when woven together, narrate a complete and compelling sport-by-sport story line. The growth and development of Connecticut athletics is traced via text, photographs and select artifacts from its humble beginnings in the 1890s to its present day ranking among the elite major college athletic programs in the nation. Included among the “must see” memorabilia in the Husky Heritage Sports Museum main concourse are the 1981 and 2000 NCAA National Championship Men’s Soccer trophies; the 1981 and 1985 NCAA National Championship Women’s Field Hockey trophies; the 1950s era baseball gloves belonging to Connecticut’s three Dropo brothers-including Walt Dropo’s first base-

man’s mitt when he was the American League Rookie of the Year with the Boston Red Sox in 1950; the 1935 Ramnapping Trophy, awarded annually to the winner of the Connecticut-Rhode Island football game; a 1931 football signed by the entire Connecticut squad; team photos of Connecticut’s first men’s (1901) and women’s (1902) basketball squads; and the Waterford Crystal NCAA National Championship trophies won by UConn Women’s Basketball (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2010, 2013) and UConn Men’s Basketball (1999, 2004, 2011). The pinnacle achievement of UConn’s 11 NCAA National Championships in both men’s and women’s basketball is preserved and promoted in a unique circular sanctuary– the Connecticut Basketball Rotunda, a gift of Herb and Marcia Dunn. Championship trophies and related artifacts that chronicle UConn’s men’s and women’s national titles are prominently featured in the rotunda, as are life-size cutouts of Husky All-American stars Ray Allen and Rebecca Lobo. Celebratory paintings of head coaches Jim Calhoun and Geno Auriemma are on display along with a one-of-a-kind watercolor team photo of the 25-member UConn Men’s Basketball All-Century team. Also within the Husky Heritage Sports Museum experience is a video wall featuring a 65-inch high definition television. Visitors can view numerous historical moments in UConn history as captured on a variety of highlight films and documentaries. Each display case of memorabilia and every historical photograph located within the walls of the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum describe a portion of a truly remarkable story. That story of the teams, the coaches, and student-athletes who have been part of the rich history that constitutes the University of Connecticut athletic experience is now being told on a daily basis at UConn’s Husky Heritage Sports Museum. In addition, there is a display on the history of football at UConn – from its starts in 1897, to its time in Division I-AA and now as a team that has played in a Bowl Championship Series game. The J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum is open free of charge to the general public during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) of the UConn Alumni Center. Since the Husky Heritage Sports Museum opened in January of 2002, several important artifacts have been donated from UConn loyalists to help expand the scope of the Connecticut Athletics storyline. The University of Connecticut Division of Athletics continues to seek additional memorabilia/artifacts to help expand the story of the UConn Huskies. Anyone wishing to donate specific Connecticut Athletics items to the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum should contact: Tim Tolokan, Phone: (860) 486-1500, e-mail: tim.tolokan@uconn.edu.
