2013 P r e v i e w

T

he University of Connecticut football team will have 15 spring practices in 2013 which concludes with the Blue-White Spring Football Game at Rentschler Field on Saturday, April 20 at noon. The schedule for spring football is somewhat different for head coach Paul Pasqualoni, who is heading into his third year, and his Huskies. UConn will have three practices (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) on the week of March 11 and then have a week off for spring break. UConn will then follow its usual Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday schedule for the rest of spring ball. UConn will face the best home schedule ever in the history of Rentschler Field this year, highlighted by home games against Michigan, Maryland, Rutgers, USF and Louisville. 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 and walk-on sophomore Chris DeBerry (Torrington, Conn.) has also joined the team. 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 games as a true freshman last year and will look to play an even bigger role this year. Redshirt senior Martin Hyppolite (Wakefield, Mass.) was injured in a serious car accident in February and his status is still to be determined, but will be out for spring ball. Junior Eric Brainard (Hebron, Conn.) is also in the mix here. Redshirt junior Reuben Frank (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) was consistent as the starting fullback last year, but has plenty of company to push him in: redshirt freshman Jazzmar Clax (Freehold, N.J.), redshirt sophomore Christopher Matteis (North Haven, Conn.) and redshirt freshman Wyatt Vinci (Ridgewood, N.J.).

Redshirt junior and Connecticut native Byron Jones has moved to cornerback this spring and has played in 21 career games with 12 starts.

The Huskies return their top two receivers from last season in redshirt junior Geremy Davis (Lawrenceville, Ga.) and redshirt junior Shakim Phillips (Paterson, N.J.). Davis made 44 receptions for 613 yards while Phillips had 32 receptions for 399 yards. 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 Rick Gutierrez (Hialeah, Fla.) plus sophomore John-Luke Bogue (New Rochelle, N.Y.), senior Frank Guardi (New Fairfield, Conn.) and senior Sujay Trivedi (Glastonbury, Conn.). The Huskies bring two freshmen into spring practice at the WR spot in Dhameer Bradley (New Castle, Del.) and Noel Thomas (Norwalk, Conn.). UConn has good experience returning this spring on the offensive line – a unit that is key for improved production in 2013. Sixth-year 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 13 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. The tight end spot is wide open with the loss of seniors Ryan Griffin and John Delahunt. Look for redshirt junior Mark Hansson (Clearwater, Fla.) and redshirt sophomore Sean McQuillan (Glastonbury, Conn.) both to get a long look there along with sophomore James Horan (Rockaway, N.J.) and reshirt senior Spencer Parker (Newington, Conn.) 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 enjoyed outstanding NFL Combine performances in February – defensive tackle Trevardo Williams, linebacker Sio Moore and cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson. On the defensive line, UConn also looses 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 by 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), redshirt sophomore Kenton Adeyemi (Wethersfield, Conn.) and redshirt junior Jonathan Louis (Brockton, Mass.). Redshirt freshmen Mykal 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. 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. 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

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 Clark (Tampa, Fla.), sophomore Kenrick Mattison (Bloomfield, Conn.) and redshirt freshman Jhavon Williams (Wellington, Fla.) will all look for playing time.

Redshirt sophomore Jeremy Claflin (West Hartford, Conn.) is also in the mix here. 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.), redshirt junior Adam Mueller (Park Ridge, Ill.) and sophomore William Oldach (Hopkinton, Mass.) are all back at long snapper.

aul Pasqualoni became the 28th head football coach at the University of Connecticut on January 14, 2011 and is entering his third season in charge of the Husky program in 2013. A native of Cheshire, Conn., Pasqualoni has extensive coaching experience on the high school, college and professional level and has served as a collegiate head coach for 20 seasons. In his first season in charge of the Connecticut program in 2011, a total of nine Husky players were named All-BIG EAST Conference. Three Husky seniors took part in the NFL Combine and four played in postseason all-star games. Tailback Lyle McCombs was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America. In 2012, eight players earned All-BIG EAST honors and seven were in all-star games. The Connecticut defense was one of the best in the country as it was ninth in the country, and first in the BIG EAST, in total defense. UConn was seventh in the country in rushing defense and 19th in scoring defense. UConn topped the BIG EAST in sacks per game and was second in tackles for a loss. Following the 2012 season, Pasqualoni was the BIG EAST career leader in both overall coaching wins (117) and conference coaching wins (67). He broke the overall coaching wins record in 2011 at Connecticut passing Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer (108) and leads Beamer by ten wins in conference play. Before taking the Connecticut position, Pasqualoni had been coaching in the National Football League as he was a member of the Dallas Cowboys staff (2005-07 and 2010) and the Miami Dolphins (2008-09). Pasqualoni worked with the tight ends (2005) and linebackers (2006-07) in Dallas. The Cowboys won the NFC East in 2007 and were a Wild Card playoff team in 2006. In 2007, the Cowboys’ defense limited opponents to 4.9 yards per play and were third in sacks. He rejoined the Cowboys staff in 2010 and became the defensive coordinator.

He served as defensive coordinator with the Dolphins and his defense allowed just 19.8 points per game in 2008 as the Dolphins won the AFC East Championship. His 2009 defense led the NFL in sacks per pass attempt. Pasqualoni served as the head coach of Syracuse from 19912004 and led the Orange to nine bowl games and was the head coach at Western Connecticut from 1982-86 and led them to an NCAA Division II postseason appearance. Pasqualoni concluded his 14-year tenure as Syracuse’s secondwinningest coach with 107 victories. He guided his teams to four BIG EAST conference titles, including a share of one in 2004 – his final year at the school -- and had a 6-3 postseason record. Among those appearances, he led the Orange to two Fiesta Bowl appearances (1992 season and ‘97 season) and a trip to the Orange Bowl (1998 season), in the first year of the Bowl Championship Series. Syracuse also played in the 2004 Champs Sports Bowl, 2001 Insight.com Bowl, 1999 Music City Bowl, the 1996 Liberty Bowl, the 1996 Gator Bowl (1995 season) and the 1992 Hall of Fame Bowl (1991 season) during Pasqualoni’s tenure. His Orange teams won 10 games in three different seasons – 1991, 1992 and 2001. He joined the Syracuse staff in 1987 and was an assistant coach there for four seasons before being named the head coach prior to the 1991 season, taking over for the legendary Dick MacPherson. Pasqualoni developed a solid contingent of professional players at Syracuse, including a string of 17 selections in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft as seven were first-round picks. The school produced at least two NFL draft selections in 11 of Pasqualoni’s 14 years as head coach. During his tenure at Syracuse as an assistant and head coach, the Orange were recognized with the AFCA Academic Achievement Honorable Mention Award for having a graduation rate better than 70 percent a total of 14 times. They were honored during 10 of

H e ad C o ach P au l P asqua l o n i the 14 years Pasqualoni was head coach. In 1999, Syracuse won the American Football Coaches Association Academic Achievement Award for posting a 100 percent graduation rate for the class that enrolled in 1994. Pasqualoni won the ECAC/Vince Lombardi Foundation Coach of the Year award in 1996 following his second-straight 9-3 season. He was named the 1992 and 1995 ECAC Coach of the Year for Division I-A. Pasqualoni served in leadership roles with the American Football Coaches Association Board of Trustees. He was appointed to the Board of Trustees in 1998 and served a three-year stint as a member of that group before becoming third-vice president for 2002. He was first vice president in 2004. The Nassau Coaches Association honored Pasqualoni with the 2003 Ralph Luisi “Don’t Quit” Memorial Award, given to an outstanding educator and coach who loves football and teaching. After finishing his undergraduate degree at Penn State, he spent four seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Cheshire High School (1972-75). His first collegiate job was as an assistant at Southern Connecticut in 1976 and was elevated to defensive coordinator in 1980. Pasqualoni had a five year stint from 1982-86 as the head football coach and athletic director at NCAA Division III Western Connecticut State in Danbury, Conn.

FOUR HUSKIES EXCEL AT NFL COMBINE UConn football standouts Trevardo Williams and Sio Moore turned heads at the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium early in the event and then later it was much of the same as UConn cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson performed for the scouts. Williams, from Bridgeport, Conn., earned top performer status among defensive linemen in the 40-yard dash (4.57 seconds), vertical jump (38.0”) and broad jump (124.0”).  He also bench pressed 30 reps of 225 lbs. and received an overall grade of 66.1  A grade from 50-69 projects a player to be drafted between the fourth and seventh rounds.  Moore, out of Apex, N.C., also reached top performer status among linebackers in the 40-yard dash (4.65), bench press (29), vertical (38.0”) and broad (127.0”) jumps.  He received an overall grade of 68.4 and also impressed in the 3-cone drill (7.49), 20- (4.31) and 60-yard shuttle (12.39). Gratz, from Piscataway, N.J., earned a spot as a top performer within the defensive backs that participated on Tuesday in the bench press (22) and vertical (38.0”).  He also ran a 4.47 40-yard dash and posted a 125.0” in the broad jump.  Overall, Gratz has been rated a 62.1. Wreh-Wilson, of Edinboro, Pa., projects as the highest draft pick from the group of Huskies with a 77.2 grade.  He posted a 4.53 40-yard dash, 14 reps, 36.0” vertical and 128.0” broad jump. 

HUSKIES IN ALL-STAR GAMES UConn senior linebacker Sio Moore tied for the North team lead in tackles with six at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on January 27 as the South defeated the North 21-16. Moore was a late addition to the North team roster last week as he made four tackles and impressed several coaches and media members as he played for the East team in the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday, Jan. 19 in Tampa, Fla.

Cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson both played in the Senior Bowl.

Notes UConn cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson also played in the Senior Bowl. Linebacker Trevardo Williams was also scheduled to play, but was a late scratch with an injury. Gratz made four tackles in the game while Wreh-Wilson had two and a pass break-up. After Moore chased down Texas A&M running back Christine Michael in the East-West game for a tackle behind the line of scrimmage, Mike Mayock spent a couple of minutes raving about Moore on the NFL Network broadcast – according to Jim Fuller of the New Haven Register. “I like the combination of heavy production at a BCS school, a great week of practice and following it up with a solid game,” Mayock said. “I think as this process goes on you are going to see this guy start to rise, and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if at the end of April he doesn’t end up in the third round.” The announcers also said that Moore drew praise from East head coach Jerry Glanville. Glanville, a former head coach of the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons, said “put an asterisk next to that guy because you are going to know who he is in the next couple of years.” UConn tight end Ryan Griffin and outside linebacker Jory Johnson both played for the “Stripes” team as the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic in Montgomery, Ala., on Saturday, Jan. 19. The “Stripes” team posted a 31-3 win over the “Stars” squad. Johnson had two tackles in the game while Griffin did not have any receptions. UConn wide receiver/kick returner Nick Williams played in the second annual Casino Del Sol AllStar Game for the East team. The contest was Friday, January 11 at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz., and the West team won 40-7. Husky wide receiver Michael Smith played in the annual Texas vs. The Nation at Eagle Stadium in Allen, Texas on Saturday, February 2.

DORSEY NAMED GM OF CHIEFS Former UConn All-American linebacker John Dorsey was named the General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs in January. Dorsey enters his first season as an NFL general manager and his 23rd year as a player personnel member. He is responsible for overseeing all player personnel matters. A four-year starter at UConn (1980-83), Dorsey was named Defensive Player of the Year in the Yankee Conference during each of his final two collegiate seasons and is the all-time leading tackler in the conference’s history. He also earned Division I-AA All-America recognition as a senior and, in 1998, he was selected to the school’s 100th Anniversary All-Time Football Team. In 2002, Dorsey was inducted into the Anne Arundel (Md.) County Sports Hall of Fame. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science. It was during his time as a college scout and eventually as Director of College Scouting that Dorsey began his association with Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid, who served as the Packers’ tight ends/ assistant offensive line coach (1992-96) and quarterbacks coach (1997-98). Selected by Green Bay in the fourth round of the 1984 NFL Draft, Dorsey played five seasons (198488) for the Packers at linebacker and on special teams before spending a final year on injured reserve in 1989. He totaled 130 tackles in his NFL career, in addition to two fumble recoveries and one pass defense. Dorsey led Green Bay’s special teams in solo tackles in three of his first four seasons, which helped him earn the nomination to be the Packers’ special teams captain. His 35 special teams tackles in 1984 are still a single-season club record.

Linebacker Sio Moore played in both the Senior Bowl and the East-West Shrine Game.

22 HUSKIES NAMED BIG EAST ALL-ACADEMIC A total of 22 Huskies were named to the 2011 BIG EAST All-Academic Football Team. To be nominated, a player must have a cumulative grade-point index of at least 3.0 and completed a minimum of two semesters of academic work.

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.

SECOND QUARTER NCSU – Niklas Sade 40 yd field goal 2:54 (15-61, 6:52) THIRD QUARTER NCSU – Bryan Underwood 46 yd pass from Mike Glennon (Sade kick) 8:34 (3-41, 1:29) FOURTH QUARTER UC – Lyle McCombs 5 yd run (Christen kick) 7:00 (3-63, 1:02)

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – North Carolina State University redshirt senior quarterback Mike Glennon threw a 46-yard third-quarter touchdown to receiver Bryan Underwood and the Wolfpack held on to beat the University of Connecticut 10-7 on Saturday before a crowd of 34,202 at Rentschler Field. UConn and NC State are both 1-1 on the season. Glennon and UConn redshirt sophomore quarterback Chandler Whitmer each threw for 204 yards. But Whitmer also had three passes intercepted as the Wolfpack forced four Huskies turnovers. All-America cornerback David Amerson recorded his 14th career interception and knocked away a fourth-down pass on Connecticut’s final drive to secure the win. Glennon completed 15 of his 30 passes but was sacked six times. NC State had just 258 yards of offense, but held the Huskies to 239. UConn redshirt sophomore Lyle McCombs rushed for 60 yards and caught a 43-yard swing pass that set up his five-yard fourth-quarter touchdown run to pull UConn to within three points with seven minutes left. Glennon opened the next drive by hitting Tobias Palmer with two quick passes to move into UConn territory. But the Huskies defense stiffened at the 27, and the Wolfpack, heading into a stiff wind, decided to go for it on fourth-and-two. Glennon’s pass to Underwood fell incomplete, giving UConn one more drive with 3:17 remaining. Whitmer moved the Huskies from their own 27 to the 46 before being sacked by linebacker Brian Slay on third down and having Amerson knock down the fourth-down pass. A bizarre UConn turnover led to NC State’s touchdown. Safety Earl Wolff tipped a Whitmer pass into the hands of Huskies redshirt senior tight end John Delahunt, who then fumbled the ball back to Wolff. Three plays later, Underwood ran under a Glennon pass, catching it with his fingertips at the 18-yard line and running the rest of the way into the end zone for a 10-0 lead. Amerson picked off Whitmer’s pass on the next UConn play, but Niklas Sade’s 44-yard FG attempt went wide right. N.C. State’s three halfbacks – Mustafa Green, Tony Creecy and James Washington – combined for just 82 yards. The first points didn’t come until late in the second quarter, when NC State put together the game’s first sustained drive of 15 plays. But after moving 61 yards, a sack by senior Trevardo Williams forced the Wolfpack to settle for a 40-yard field goal from Sade with just under three minutes left in the first half. Connecticut’s best scoring chance before halftime came when Nick Williams’ 30-yard catch set the Huskies up at the N.C. State 37. But after a penalty, Whitmer tripped and fell while dropping back, and an 18-yard catch by Williams set up a fourth-and-2. UConn went for it rather than try a 47-yard field goal into a stiff wind, and Whitmer was sacked by linebacker Rickey Dowdy. UConn won the early battle for field possession, but could not capitalize. The Huskies failed to get a first down after starting their first three drives on their own 39, 48 and the NC State 45. The Huskies didn’t have a first down until the end of the quarter when NC State’s T.Y. McGill was called for roughing Whitmer. The Huskies had just 111 yards and four first downs at halftime, but their defense held NC State to 116 yards in the half. Of the 69 plays before intermission, only 38 of them went for positive yards.

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.
