UConn has closed out its last two seasons against the Bearcats needing a win in each game to earn bowl eligibility, but lost both games. Last season, Cincinnati beat UConn by a 34-17 score on December 1, 2012 at Rentschler Field. Cincy QB Brandon Kay threw two TD passes to TE Travis Kelce and caught another on a trick play from the tight end. 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 QB Chandler Whitmer threw for 264 yards and a TD before leaving the game with a head injury. Lyle McCombs had 60 yards of rushing. The Bearcats scored the first two TDs of the game but the Huskies came back to trail just 14-10 at the half. After the teams traded third quarter TDs, the Bearcats scored the final 13 points for the win. In its last visit to Cincinnati, UConn lost by a 35-27 score on December 3, 2011. The tone of the game was set quickly as the Bearcats scored first quarter touchdowns on a fumble recovery and an interception to lead 14-0 after one quarter and led 28-6 at the half. Cincinnati led 35-12 after three quarters and the Huskies scored the final 15 points of the game to make the score closer.

October 19, 2013 • vs. Cincinnati Huskies faced a team ranked in the Associated Press poll at the time of the game. UConn has a 2-19 record in those games with the two wins coming vs. No. 19 Louisville on November 24, 2012 by a 23-20 score in triple overtime and on Oct. 27, 2007 with a 22-15 win over No. 11 USF. UConn first played a ranked team in the 2001 season opener at No. 9 Virginia Tech. UConn has played the country’s top ranked team once when it traveled to Miami on Oct. 5, 2002. UCONN FOOTBALL A LEADER IN ACADEMICS The UConn football program continues to be a leader in terms of academic performance by its student-athletes. UConn was the top team in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of both October 2008 and ’09 among Big East league schools. In 2010, the Huskies GSR was third in the Big East and within four points of the second place team in 2011, was tied for fourth in the league, but within four points of the two schools that were tied for second. UConn’s 75 percent GSR mark released in 2012 was well ahead of the national GSR for FBS teams, which was 67 percent. The UConn football program also had the highest NCAA GSR for African-American student-athletes among all state universities that participated in a bowl game in 2008. In five of the past seven years, including 2007, ‘08 and ‘09, UConn was recognized by the American Football Coaches Association for its high graduation rate. UConn’s overall GSR in 2009 was the third-highest of the more than 50 state universities that participated in a bowl game. In 2012, the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) for the UConn football team was an impressive 963 over a four-year cycle, with a one-year mark of 950 for the 2010-11 academic year. The 963 was above the national average for FBS schools (952) and public institutions (943). UConn’s 2013 APR score of 958 was 11 points higher than the national average of public institutions. HUSKIES VS. NON-CONFERENCE FOES SINCE 2002 Connecticut boasts a 45-26 record against non-conference opponents in the regular season since making the move to the FBS in 2002. The Huskies have won 20 of their last 32 regular season nonleague games overall with the only blemishes coming via a onepoint loss at Virginia (17-16) in 2007, losses to North Carolina in 2008 and ‘09, Michigan and Temple in ’10, Vanderbilt, Iowa State and Western Michigan in ’11, North Carolina State and Western Michigan in ’12 and Towson, Maryland, Michigan and Buffalo in ’13. UConn has posted the following records in non-conference regular season games: 6-6 (2002), 9-3 (2003), 4-1 (2004), 3-1 (2005), 3-2 (2006), 4-1 (2007), 4-1 (2008), 4-1 (2009), 3-2 (2010), 2-3 (2011), 3-2 (2012) and 0-4 (2013). HUSKIES ON THE REBOUND UConn is 34-25 in games following a loss since Oct. 26, 2002. The Huskies lost their 2012 season finale vs. Cincinnati and the record includes games over two seasons with the losses to Towson, Maryland, Michigan, Buffalo and now USF.

OFFENSE NOTES BOYLE GETS THE STARTING NOD UConn freshman quarterback Tim Boyle (Middlefield, Conn.) made his first career start and got his first career playing time

4

last Saturday against USF. Boyle was 15 of 43 in the air for 149 yards without a touchdown or an interception. He also ran the ball nine times for 12 yards. Boyle was named Connecticut High School Coaches’ Association Player of the Year as a senior in 2012 at Xavier High School in Middletown. Boyle became the first true freshman to start a game for UConn at quarterback since Shelton native Dan Orlovsky did on October 6, 2001 – a 19-0 win over Eastern Michigan. Orlovsky started 43 consecutive games over three-plus seasons, concluding his career with a win in the Huskies’ first-ever bowl appearance – the 2004 Motor City Bowl. Boyle was named first team All-State by the New Haven Register and All-Hartford Courant and was named All-Southern Connecticut Conference as a senior. He threw for nearly 2,500 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior as team won state Class LL championship for the third-straight season – a 48-14 win over Norwich Free Academy at Rentschler Field. Boyle was named one of three finalists for the Walter Camp Football Foundation Connecticut Player of the Year Award along with fellow UConn freshman FB Matt Walsh (Madison, Conn.). As a junior, Boyle shared starting duties and threw for 850 yards and 15 TDs in six games. On June 29 at Rentschler Field, Boyle played in the Hall of Fame Classic Military Bowl – a Connecticut all-star game – and had two TD passes leading his team to a 15-14 win. He was 12 of 24 in the air for 134 yards. WHITMER AT BACKUP UConn junior quarterback Chandler Whitmer (Newnan, Ga.) started the last 15 games for the Huskies at quarterback dating back to the start of the 2012 season. His 2,503 yards of total offense last year was eighth in school single-season history while his 208 completions was seventh. Whitmer’s 2,664 passing yards was fifth. Here is the statement that head coach T.J. Weist released to explain the quarterback change and how Whitmer has handled himself since coming to UConn. “Chandler Whitmer has exhibited outstanding character and integrity since the day I stepped on to this campus and even before I got here. He has worked extremely hard, put in a lot of hours at his craft, and done everything in his power to help this team be successful. We all know the QB takes an unfair amount of criticism when a team loses. To Chandler’s credit he has handled the criticism with class and dignity. He has done everything in his power to improve and do the best job possible. We haven’t always put him in the best position to be successful, having had multiple injuries at the wide receiver and the offensive line positions and to his credit he has not complained. He’s gone out and battled every game for this team. “That being said, we feel like at this time we need to give Tim a chance to play and see if he can provide a spark for our team. He has been working hard and deserves an opportunity to show what he can do. Chandler is still a big factor and leader on this team and we know that he will continue to prepare as if he’s the starter and when his number is called he will be ready to help this team in whatever capacity is needed. He’s been a great mentor to Tim up to this point and given his integrity and character we know he will continue to do whatever it takes to help Tim and this team be successful.” Whitmer enrolled at Connecticut for the spring 2012 semester and participated in spring practice. Whitmer originally enrolled

He owns two of the top six single-season rushing marks in school history. McCombs had 135 yards on 10 carries in the first half, which easily topped his season best for a total game – 76 yards on 17 carries vs. Towson in the opener. McCombs was named a preseason candidate list for the 2013 Doak Walker Award, which is given to the nation’s top college running back each year by the PwC SMU Athletic Forum.

Davis has had two 100-yard receiving games this season (100 vs. Towson, 102 vs. Michigan) and has three for his career (123 vs. Western Michigan in ’12). UConn redshirt junior Shakim Phillips (Paterson, N.J.) is second with 15 receptions for 225 yards and three TDs this season despite missing two games with a hamstring injury and playing sparingly vs. USF. Philips had ten receptions for 178 yards and one TD vs. Maryland on Sept. 14, which was a career-high in each category. The 178 yards of receiving was the most for a Husky in UConn’s FBS era (since 2002). It marked the first time a Husky receiver had more than 150 yards in one game since Marcus Easley had 157 against West Virginia on Oct. 24, 2009. It was the most receiving yards in a single-game for a Husky since Dak Newton had 222 vs. Villanova on Oct. 5, 1996.

October 19, 2013 • vs. Cincinnati DEFENSE NOTES GAWDY DEFENSIVE NUMBERS IN 2012 The UConn defense established itself as one of the top units in college football last season in 2012. UConn was ninth in total defense (309.92 yards per game), seventh in rushing defense (97.92 yards per game), 15th in tackles for loss (7.33 per game), 18th in sacks (2.75 per game), 36th in pass defense (212.00 yards per game) and 19th in scoring defense (19.83 points per game). UConn led the BIG EAST in total defense, rushing defense, pass defense and sacks. In 2013, the Husky national ranking has improved each week and this week the Huskies are a very respectable 28th at 348.2 yards per game. UConn gave up just 36 points in the first quarter of games last year (field goal by WMU, TD vs. Buffalo, two FG by Rutgers, two FG by Syracuse. TD by USF, TD by Cincinnati) and gave up only 33 first quarter first downs. The Huskies have now given up just 71 points in the past 16 games in the first quarter, including the five games this season and 28 of those points coming in the last three games. SMALLWOOD THIRD IN COUNTRY IN TACKLES UConn junior linebacker Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) has led UConn in tackles in four of the Huskies first five games with 16 against Towson, 14 against Maryland, 13 vs. Michigan and 12 vs. Buffalo. He was second on the team in the USF game with nine. He is ranked third in the country in tackles per game at 12.8 and leads the American. Smallwood was named to the American Weekly Honor roll for his performance vs. Michigan. He was named the National Defensive Player of the Week by CBSSports.com for his performance vs. the Wolverines. Smallwood was named to virtually every defensive award preseason Watch List for the 2013 season. He was named to the lists for the: Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Bednarik Award -- both are given to the top defensive player in the country – and also named to the lists for the Butkus Award that honors the nation’s best linebacker. Smallwood was a first team All-BIG EAST selection in 2012 and led the Huskies in tackles with 120 and was second in tackles for a loss with 15. He had four sacks and two forced fumbles. Smallwood was tied for 20th in the country in tackles per game (10.0) and was third in the BIG EAST. Entering 2013, Smallwood had played in all 24 UConn games over the past two seasons and with 214 career tackles with 5.5 sacks and 17.5 TFLs.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES

CHRISTEN FG STREAK BROKEN Redshirt senior kicker Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) missed a 46yard field goal in the third quarter of the Michigan game, which broke a streak of ten-straight FG attempts dating back to last year. He made two against Buffalo (33 and 37 yards) before having a 48-yarder blocked in the third quarter. On Saturday vs. USF, he had a make (32), a miss (49) and one blocked (47). He connected on three field goals in the win over Louisville on Nov. 24, 2012, including the winning 30-yarder in the third overtime. His other field goals were 39 yards in the first quarter and a 37-yarder in the first overtime. Dating back to the Syracuse game on October 19, 2012 and including the Towson and Maryland games, he had made ten-straight FG attempts. He missed the ’12 season finale vs. Cincinnati due to injury.

WAGNER ALREADY IN THE BOOK UConn redshirt senior Cole Wagner (York, Pa.) has already established himself as a top performer in the UConn record books. Wagner is in his third season as the regular UConn punter and was a Second Team All-Big East selection in 2011. He is now second in UConn career history in punting average (min. 80 punts) with a 40.8 average, while the leader is Desi Cullen (2006-09) with 41.1. Wagner is tied for first in career number of punts (271) and now first in career yardage (11,051). Consecutive Years of Returning a Kickoff/Punt for a Touchdown 1.

STADIUM/ATTENDANCE NOTES RENTSCHLER FIELD The Huskies moved into brand new Rentschler Field in East Hartford for the 2003 season and UConn is marking the 10th Anniversary of the stadium in 2013 with a number of special events and promotions, including the 2013 game tickets, which features a great moment in Rentschler Field history on each one. The ticket for the USF game featured Scott Lutrus against USF in 2007, UConn’s first win over a ranked opponent. The ticket for the Michigan game featured D.J. Hernandez celebrating a successful two-point conversion in UConn’s doubleovertime win over Pittsburgh in 2006. The ticket for the Maryland game featured Alfred Fincher and UConn’s 22-20 win over Duke in 2004, the second year of stadium play. The ticket for the Towson game featured quarterback Dan Orlovsky and the Opening Day Game, a 34-10 win over Indiana on Aug. 30, 2003. Located within miles of Interstates 91, 84 and 384, the home of the Huskies lies on 75 acres of land donated to the State of Connecticut from the historic Pratt & Whitney Airfield. The stadium, like the former airfield, is named for that company’s founder, Frederick Rentschler. The stadium boasts a capacity of 40,000 with 38 luxury suites. The Huskies have sold out 30 of their first 66 dates at Rentschler Field. UConn has played to 96.4-pct. of capacity all-time there, drawing 2,544,823 fans, or an average of 38,557 per game. UConn set a new all-time single-game attendance record at Rentschler Field on Saturday against Michigan with a crowd of 42,704. That capacity was achieved with extra bleachers brought in for that game.

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

Field Goal Attempts Christen 1st 8:43 32 yds Good Christen 1st 4:56 49 yds Miss 3rd 1:33 47 yds Block EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - USF kicker Marvin Kloss hit two field Christen goals and Aaron Lynch returned a fumble 44 yards for a touchdown as USF beat the University of Connecticut football team by a 13-10 on Saturday before a Homecoming crowd of 37,861 at Rentschler Field. UConn drops to 0-5 on the season and 0-1 in the American Athletic Conference while USF is 2-4 and 2-0. It was the Bulls second consecutive win without an offensive touchdown after beating Cincinnati last week. Kloss’ 44-yard field goal with just over four minutes left capped a more than seven minute fourth-quarter drive, and was the game winner. He has converted on nine consecutive attempts, including a 47-yarder in the first half. UConn junior running back Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) had a career-high 164 yards rushing and a touchdown for Connecticut, which has lost five straight games to open a season for the first time since 1977. The Bulls winning drive went 65 yards in 13 plays. USF just missed out on a touchdown when Steven Bravo-Brown got his hands on a 26-yard pass, but dropped the ball in the end zone. UConn, which was held scoreless in the second half, got the ball back twice more. They drove to midfield with six seconds left, but a Hail Mary on the game’s final play fell incomplete in the end zone. An interception by redshirt junior UConn cornerback Byron Jones (New Britain, Conn.) at the USF 29, set up a 32-yard field goal from redshirt senior Chad Christen (Etters, Pa.) that opened the scoring. USF’s defense then got its third touchdown in three weeks. Ryne Giddins knocked the ball away from Boyle, and Lynch picked up the loose ball and rumbled 44-yards to make it 7-3 late in the first quarter. It took the Huskies just four plays to retake the lead as McCombs weaved his way for a 52-yard touchdown run, his longest run of the season and longest since 2011. The junior’s previous rushing high this season had been 76 yards. He had 135 in the first half of this one. Kloss, who hit four field goals last week, capped a six-play second quarter drive to score 10-10. The junior has five field goals of 47 yards or more on the year, a new school record. UConn had a chance to take the lead in the third quarter, but Julius Forte blocked a 47-yard field goal attempt, the second week in a row that USF has blocked a kick. UConn returns to action next Saturday when it travels to Cincinnati for a noon game on ESPNU and the UConn IMG Radio Network.
