UConn and Buffalo met in 10 of 11 seasons from 1995-2005. The Huskies have won nine of the last 10 meetings with the Bulls, with the exception being a 37-20 Bull win in Storrs in 2001. Buffalo was the only team to play UConn in all four of its first Division I-A seasons. The last meeting between the two schools was in Jan. 3, 2009, as the Huskies beat Buffalo in the 2009 International Bowl in Toronto to wrap up the 2008 season. UConn won the game by a score of 38-20. UConn’s Donald Brown was the MVP of that game as he rushed for 209 yards on 29 carries and a TD. It was his final game as a collegiate player before being picked in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Current Husky Jordan Todman had seven carries for 62 yards in the game. The Husky defense was outstanding in the game as it limited the Bulls to 237 yards of total offense and just 24 yards of net rushing. Buffalo led the game at the half by a 20-17 score after a haphazard second quarter where UConn committed four turnovers that resulted in 17 points for the Bulls.

HUSKIESONTHEREBOUND UConn is 24-14 in games following a loss since Oct. 26, 2002. BALLCONTROLISTHEKEY A telling sign of UConn’s strong performance on both sides of the ball during its tenure as a FBS program has been its ability to both record and prevent long drives. Since the start of the 2002 season, UConn’s offense has strung together 72 scoring drives of at least 80 yards while the Husky defense has surrendered just 51 such marches -- including two by Michigan on Sept. 4. UConn also holds a 19-6 advantage over its opponents in the number of 90-yard and over drives since becoming a I-A program. Michigan had a 96-yarder on Sept. 4. HUSKIESDOMINATINGONBOTHSIDESOFTHEBALL Over the past 92 games, UConn has outgained its opponent 60times. This stretch, like many UConn trends, dates back to a 28-24 loss at Vanderbilt on Oct. 26, 2002. CONNECTICUT’SFOURCAPTAINS The UConn team selected four team captains for the 2010 season, ScottLutrus and AnthonySherman (both for the second-consecutive year) and ZachHurdwith KendallReyes.

OFFENSE NOTES TODMANLEADSTHERUSHINGGAME Junior Jordan Todman (North Dartmouth, Mass.) has led Connecticut in rushhing in all three games this season with 105 yards and a touchdown vs. Michigan, 151 yards and three TDs vs. Texas Southern and 192 yards on 26 carries vs. Temple. The192yardsvs.Templewasacareer-highandhis59-yard rushforathird-quarterTDtiedacareerhigh. He is ranked fourth in the country in rushing and first in the BIG EAST at 149.33 yards per game.

Todman was the leading returning rusher for the Huskies as he rushed for 1,188 yards last year -- the sixth-highest mark in schoolhistory. He also teamed with the graduated Andre Dixon (who rushed for 1,093 yards in ‘09) to mark the first time UConn had two 1,000 yard rushers in the same season. UConn was just one of two FBS schools to have multiple 1,000 yard rushers last year -- along with Nevada. Todman was a Second Team All-BIG EAST performer in 2009 and became the 11th Husky to rush for 1,000 yards. His 235 carries in 2009 was the sixth-highest in school history and his 14 rushing TDs is tied for fifth. He was named a preseason candidate for the Doak Walker Award, given to the top running back in the nation. FRAZERATTHEQBPOSITION Senior ZachFrazerhas started the first three games of the season for UConn at quarterback. Frazer has seen action in 15 games for UConn over the past two-plus seasons and has 12 career starts. Frazer transferred to Connecticut from Notre Dame and sat out the 2007 season in Storrs. Frazer began the 2009 season as UConn’s starting QB and led the Huskies to a win at Ohio. He was injured in the loss to North Carolina and did not play in the next five games. He was called into action on Oct. 31 vs. Rutgers when Cody Endres went down and was 21 of 46 for 333 yards, one TD and three interceptions. Frazer started the five games of 2009 and led the Huskies to wins in the final four. Following the three interceptions vs. Rutgers, he threw just two more in the next five games. He led his team to a double-OT win over his former school, Notre Dame, and was 12 of 25 for 141 yards against the Irish. He also enjoyed an outstanding game in the regular season final vs. USF as he was 20 of 30 for 225 yards and a pair of TDs. Frazer made his collegiate debut in UConn’s win over Louisville in 2007. He came into the game late in the first half after starting QB TylerLorenzensuffered a broken foot. He led UConn to a comefrom-behind win over Louisville as he was eight of 15 for 90 yards and a TD -- despite not having played in an football game since his high school senior year of 2005 in Mechanicsburg, Pa. EXPERIENCEONTHELINE Todman, Frazer and company are having a chance to run the offense behind a very experienced line this year. UConn returned players that made 49 of the 65 starts on the offensive line in 2009. UConn’s returning offensive linemen made a total of 75 starts over their careers entering the 2010 season. Senior offensive guard ZachHurd (Waterford, Conn.) and junior center MoePetrus (St. Laurent, Que.) lead the way with 29 career starts, including the first three games of the 2010 season. FREYGETSCAREERHIGH Junior RobbieFrey(Lehighton, Pa.) rushed for a career-high 101 yards with two TDs on 12 carries against Texas Southern on Sept 11. The 101 yards was his career high and he had a 63-yard rush for a touchown, which was also a career-high. He carried the ball four times for 12 yards against Michigan on

He also saw limited practice time during the spring. Frey had a solid day returning kickoffs on October 24, 2009 vs. West Virginia as he had a career-high 136 yards on five returns. His high was 55 yards in the second quarter -- which set up a TD drive. He had three returns for 163 yards vs. Rutgers before a shoulder injury ended his day and season. He had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown vs. the Scarlet Knights -- the third in school history. . THERECEIVERSLOOKINGTOSTANDUP As experienced as UConn is in many areas of its team this year, it does lack that at the wide receiver position. UConn lost its top two receivers from last year in Marcus Easley (48 rec., 893 yards, 8 TD) and Brad Kanuch (27 rec., 325 yards and a TD). Those two combined for 75 of UConn’s 214 receptions (35 percent) and nine of UConn’s 16 receiving TDs (56.3 percent). UConn’s leading returning receiver entering the year was redshirt junior IsiahMoore(Cambridge, Mass.), who had 24 receptions for 286 yards and a TD. Second is redshirt sophomore tight end Ryan Griffin(Londonderry, N.H.) with 23 for 272 yards. Five different Huskies made three receptions each vs. Michigan in the opener while seven different UConn players had at least one reception on Sept. 1 vs. Texas Southern. Junior MikeSmith (Houston, Texas) leads the Huskies in receiving this year with 12 for 180 years and a TD. Redshirt junior Kashif Moore (Burlington, N.J.) is second with eight for 101 and a TD. SHOEMATEJOINSTHEHUSKIES Tailback D.J.Shoemate (Corona, Calif.) enrolled at UConn in July after spending his first two years at the University of Southern California. Shoemate is eligible to play at UConn immediately and has two years of eligibility remaining. He had three carries for 10 yards vs. Michigan -- his first action as a Husky -- on Sept. 4 and then had nine carries for 45 yards, including a 28-yarder, vs. Texas Southern. He had his first receptions as a Husky with a pair vs. Temple. Shoemate served as a backup fullback for the Trojans and played on special teams as a sophomore in 2009. He played in 12 games for USC and had a pair of carries for two yards and two receptions for 23 yards, including a 13-yard TD. Shoemate began 2008 as a wide receiver, and then was moved mid-season to fullback. He also played on special teams and played in a total of nine games. He enjoyed a tremendous career at Servite High School in AnaheimwherehewasteammateswithcurrentHuskyquarterbackJohnnyMcEntee.

DEFENSE NOTES DEFENSEAMONGTHENATION’SBEST UConn’s defensive unit was amongst the best in the nation in 2007 and 2008. In 2008, the UConn scoring defense was ranked 22nd in the country and third in the BIG EAST at 19.77 points per game and was sixth in the nation and first in the BIG EAST in total defense, giving up just 278.00 yards per game.

WILSON,LINEBACKERSEXPERIENCED UConn senior linebacker Lawrence Wilson (Birmingham, Ala.) was the leading tackler on the Husky team with 140 stops and had 11 tackles for a loss and five sacks. He was a first team All-BIG EAST pick last year. Wilson has started 2010 right where he was in 2009 as he led the Huskies with 12 tackles vs. Michigan, seven against Texas Southern and six vs. Temple. He is part of a highly experienced linebacker unit. Wilson has started 40 games during his career and all 13 last year. Joining him is senior GregLloyd (Clermont, Fla.), who has 23 career starts (most of them on the defensive line) and senior Scott Lutrus (Brookfield, Conn.) with 35. Lloyd had 11 tackles vs. the Wolverines, six against Texas Southern and seven vs. Temple. Lloyd is currently 11th in the country in solo tackles and firstintheBIGEASTat6.33pergame. Lloyd was a second team All-BIG EAST pick and suffered a season-ending knee injury that also kept him out of spring practice. It was originally thought that Lloyd might have to miss this season as well, but he has recovered and will play. Lutrus missed the Texas Southern and Temple games with an injury. STEPHENMAKESFIRSTCAREERSTART UConn redshirt freshman Shamar Stephen (Brooksville, N.Y.) started the first game of his collegiate career on Saturday vs. Temple. He had played in a reserve role in the first two games of the year and recorded four tackles with one for a loss of four yards. He currently has eight tackles on the year with one sack and is tied as the ninth-leading tackler on the team. JOSEPHSTARTSRIGHTAWAY UConn sophomore Jesse Joseph (Laval, Que.) started his first career game for the Huskies in last year’s opener. He became the first Husky to start as a true freshman in a season-opener since punter Shane Hussar in 2004. Tailback Terry Caulley and fullback Deon Anderson both started the season-opener as true freshmen in 2002. Joseph wound up starting all 13 games and had 38 tackles on the season. Joseph became the first player to start the opening game as a true freshman on defense in the UConn FBS era -- since 2002.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES TEGGARTALREADYINRECORDBOOK Redshirt junior DaveTeggart (Northborough, Mass.) has connected on all 72 of his extra point attempts during his career -- including 47 last year.

He had a total of 14 field goals in 2009 which is tied as the fourth-highest in school history. Teggart made his collegiate debut on Oct. 25, 2008 as the Huskies’ kicker and was an impressive four-for-four on field goals and also made four extra point attempts against Cincinnati.

Cullen graduated as the leading punter in school history in terms of average at 41.1 yards per boot. Last season, he averaged 42.8 yards per punt (another school record) and had two of the top six punting seasons in school history. Redshirt freshman ColeWagner (York, Pa.) has had 15 punts for an average of 38.9 yards this year. His long is 66 yards and he has had five within the 20-yard line.

STADIUM/ATTENDANCE NOTES RENTSCHLERFIELD The Huskies moved into brand new Rentschler Field in East Hartford for the 2003 season with the stadium opening its doors on August 30 when UConn defeated Indiana, 34-10. Conveniently located within miles of Interstates 91, 84 and 384, the home of the Huskies lies on 75 acres of land donated to the State of Connecticut from the historic Pratt & Whitney Airfield. The stadium, like the former airfield, is named for that company’s founder, Frederick Rentschler. The stadium boasts a capacity of 40,000 with 38 luxury suites in a massive press box tower which helps enclose the natural grass field. AHOTTICKET Swelling interest in the Husky football program as it gradually moved up into BIG EAST play can perhaps be best evidenced by the rise in attendance. UConn sold 28,000 season tickets in 2008 and sold its entire allotment of student season tickets at 4,700. These figures are staggering sums considering that the entire 2001 season ticket base was around 4,000. In 2002, the number reached 11,300 in the final season of Memorial Stadium. The burgeoning season ticket base more than doubled to 24,000 for the inaugural season at Rentschler Field and rose to 28,000 a year later in 2004. UConn reached an all-time high of 32,000 season tickets in 2005.

Smith 11 pass from D. Robinson (Gibbons kick) 13:07 (11 plays, 89 yards, 4:22) Attendance-113,090 ANNARBOR,Mich.-Sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson rushed for 199 yards and passed for 187 more as Michigan defeated Connecticut in the season-opening game for both teams. The game was the rededication game of Michigan Stadium and played before a crowd of 113,909 - the largest crowd to ever see a professional or college football game in the modern era. Robinson set a Michigan school record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. Robinson also was an effective passer as he was 19 of 22 in the air. The Huskies were led in rushing by junior tailback Jordan Todman (North Dartmouth, Mass.) with 20 carries for 105 yards while starting quarterback Zach Frazer (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) was 18 of 37 in the air for 205 yards. The Wolverines outgained the Huskies in total offense by a 474-332 count. Michigan led 21-10 at the half and scored a field goal on its first possession of the second half in a drive that consumed 8:09. Brendan Gibbons connected on a 24-yard FG for the score. The Huskies were deep in UM territory late in the third quarter when junior tailback D.J. Shoemate (Corona, Calif.) was hit and fumbled the ball on a fourth down play after he gained enough yards for the first down. Michigan sealed the win with an 11-yard TD pass from Robinson to Vincent Smith with 13:07 to go that made it 30-10 after the Wolverines missed the extra point. Michigan scored a touchdown on its first possession of the game as it went on a 14 play-96 yard drive. Smith scored on a 12-yard run for the score as Denard Robinson had 69 yards of rushing. The following drive Connecticut moved the ball to the Michigan 23, but the Wolverines blocked a 40-yard field goal attempt. Michigan scored after the blocked field goal on a seven-play, 77- yard drive as Robinson was impressive again. He had 52 yards of rushing on that drive - including a 32-yard run for the TD and a 14-0 Michigan lead. He also completed two passes for 21 yards. Michigan made it 21-0 early in the second quarter as it went on an eight play-38 yard drive as it gained great field possession on a poor Connecticut punt. Michael Shaw ran for three yards for the TD. The Huskies came back and scored the final 10 points of the half to make it 21-10 Wolverines at halftime. Connecticut got its first points of the season on a 32-yard field goal by junior David Teggart (Northborough, Mass.) that completed a 12 play-48 yard scoring drive. UConn then forced Michigan to punt for the first time of the game and the Huskies proceeded to score a touchdown on a 10 play-77 yard drive. Junior Mike Smith (Houston, Texas) had two receptions on the drive for 68 yards - including a nifty 47-yarder where he maintained possession several times as the ball bobbled in his hands. Todman scored the TD on a two-yard run on a fourth down play.

The Huskies leveled their record on the season at 1-1, while the Tigers drop to 0-2. The victory was the 67th win in head coach Randy Edsall's career at UConn making him the school all-time winningest coach. Edsall, in his 12th year at UConn, passed the mark of J.O. Christan, who had 66 from 1934-49. Todman did all of his damage in the game's first 27 minutes as the Huskies thoroughly dominated the contest. He narrowly missed topping his career-best rushing total of 162 yards and his 21 career rushing touchdowns tie him for 10th all-time at Connecticut with Jeff Gallaher. Also topping the 100-yard rushing mark in the contest was redshirt junior tailback Robbie Frey, who registered a career-best 101-yards, including a 63-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Frey finished with two touchdowns among his 12 carries, as the Huskies had teammates top the 100-yard rushing mark for the first time since the Notre Dame last season. The Huskies out-gained the Tigers on the ground, 307-18. Connecticut's offense was not one-dimensional as redshirt senior quarterback Zach Frazer had a solid outing as well. He completed six of nine passes, for 104 yards and two touchdowns. The scoring passes went to junior wide receiver Michael Smith, who snagged his first career touchdown midway through the first quarter, and to redshirt junior Kashif Moore, who scored on a 24-yard pass late in the first period. The Huskies led 24-0 at the end of the first 15 minutes and took a 45-0 lead into the locker room at intermission. The Connecticut defense was so dominant that the Tigers did not register a first down until the 6:54 mark of the second quarter. Texas Southern was only able to generate eight first downs on the contest, and was out-gained 444-169 in the contest. Redshirt senior linebacker Lawrence Wilson led the Huskies with seven tackles, while redshirt sophomore linebacker Sio Moore had a huge game, registering six tackles, a sack and a total of two tackles for loss. The Husky defense also forced four turnovers with interceptions by senior linebacker Greg Lloyd, freshman cornerback Taylor Mack and redshirt sophomore linebacker Jory Johnson. Junior defensive back Kijuan Dabney recovered a fumble. Edsall was able to substitute freely and the scoring was capped by an 11-yard touchdown run by redshirt junior tailback Meme Wylie, the first score of his career.

BUFFALO

The Huskies led 16-14 midway through the fourth quarter, but Temple's Adrian Robinson had a 43-yard fumble return off a five-yard Todman rush to make it 20-16 Owls with 8:28 to play. Temple was able to score again late in the fourth quarter, taking a 27-16 lead with 5:54 left to play. Temple's Delano Green had a 47-yard punt return and Bernard Pierce scored on a two-yard rush. Brandon McManus converted a 32-yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining in the game to give the Owl's the 30-16 lead and eventual final score. UConn trailed 7-6 at halftime but Todman opened the third quarter scoring with a career-high 63-yard TD run to give the Huskies at 13-7 lead a minute into the second half. The Owls took a 14-13 lead with 5:14 left in the third quarter on a one-yard rush by Pierce. That capped a nine play-60 yard drive as Pierce rushed nine times on the possession. The Huskies regained the lead on the next possession as Teggart connected on the career-long 47-yarder. That drive included a 16-yard pass from junior quarterback Zach Frazer to junior Mike Smith. The Huskies outgained Temple on total offense in the first half by a 245-135 count but UConn was also called for five penalties for 38 yards. UConn scored first on its opening drive as junior kicker Teggart connected on a 36-yard field goal for the 3-0 lead. The 12 play-71 yard drive started on the Husky 10 and UConn moved the ball to a first and 10 on the Temple 22. The drive stalled from there as UConn picked up only three more yards to set up Teggart's score. Temple scored the only touchdown of the first half as it covered 69 yards on three plays as quarterback Chester Stewart scored on a 27-yard TD run. Stewart also had a 33-yard pass to Joe Jones to open the drive. Connecticut rounded out the first half scoring on a 26-yard field goal by Teggart to make it 7-6 Owls at the half. The drive was 80 yards on 10 plays as Frazer had two completions for 33 yards and Todman had 39 yards on three carries in the drive.
