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 77 scoring drives of at least 80 yards while the Husky defense has surrendered just 55 such marches -- including two by Michigan and Oklahoma and one by Buffalo and Cincinnati last year. UConn had two 80-yard scoring drives vs. Fordham on Saturday. 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 last year. HUSKIESDOMINATINGONBOTHSIDESOFTHEBALL Over the past 103 games, UConn has outgained its opponent 64 times. 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 2011 season, KendallReyes (for the second-consecutive year) and KashifMoore with MoePetrus and BlidiWreh-Wilson.

THEQUARTERBACKRACE Connecticut entered the 2011 season without a quarterback who has started a collegiate game and with only one quarterback who has played in a collegiate game. UConn started three different QBs last year, who have all moved on from the program -- graduated Zach Frazer with ten starts, including the last six of the 2010 season; Cody Endres with two starts and Mike Box with one. Here’s a quick look at the three Husky QBs who are competing for playing time this year: * Senior Johnny McEntee (Fullerton, Calif.) -- Walk-on who has played in two games over the past two seasons...gained international fame last winter with his “trick shot” video on YouTube...the video now has over six million hits...started the Fordham game and was 8 of 12 in the air for 113 yards. * Redshirt freshman Scott McCummings (Natick, Mass.) -Redshirt freshman who attended same high school as Doug Flutie...had over 2,000 yards of passing in senior year with over 1,000 yards of rushing...passed for 15 TDs as a senior and rushed

for another 12...was 1 for 1 in the air vs. Fordham with a 55-yard TD pass and also ran the ball seven times for 23 yards. * Freshman MikeNebrich (Burke, Va.) -- Highly-decorated Virginia high school player who enrolled at UConn for the spring 2011 semester...as a senior, broke the Virginia state record for all-purpose yards with 4,968 and scored 59 TDs...had 11 yards of rushing vs. Fordham with 60 passing yards on 3 of 8. EXPERIENCEONTHELINE Whoever gets the nod at quarterback for the Huskies plays behind an experienced offensive line. Senior center MoePetrus (St. Laurent, Que.) has started 40 consecutive games for the Huskies -- and the last 27 at center. Senior left tackle MikeRyan (Tamaqua, Pa.) returns after earning All-BIG EAST first team honors last year and has started 22 games over the past two years. Junior AdamMasters (Bethesda, Md.) will play right guard and started ten games last year -- the final six at right tackle. Sophomore KevinFriend(Warrentown, Va.) will play right tackle and had a pair of starts last year.

DEFENSE NOTES LOTSOFSTARTS,STARTERSBACK Connecticut returns on of the most experienced defenses in the country and in the BIG EAST Conference this season. On the defensive line, UConn returns players that started 45 games in 2010 and 93 for their career. The linebackers have just nine career and nine starts from ‘10 returning. The secondary is also very experienced with 45 starts back from last year and 71 for their careers. For totals, the UConn defense has 100 starts returning from last season and a total of 173 career starts. JENNINGSGETSFIRSTCAREERSTART Connecticut redshirt junior TeddyJennings (Dayton, Ohio) made his first career start on Saturday at defensive end. He responded by making eight tackles -- with 2.5 for a loss. Jennings moved into the starting linep after playing in 13 games over the past two years as a reserve. He started in place of the injured Jesse Joseph, who did not dress for the first time in his career vs. Fordham. The junior had started in 25 games over the past two years, missing one game, but dressed for it.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES TEGGARTCAREERLEADERINFIELDGOALS Redshirt senior Dave Teggart (Northborough, Mass.) has connected on all 103 of his extra point attempts during his career -including 36 in 2010 and 47 in 2009. The 47-straight extra points from 2009 is a school record while his 36 from 2010 is third. His 52 career field goals is a school record, which he broke with a 24-yard FG vs. Cincinnati in 2010.

Teggart recorded what is arguably the biggest play in school history in the regular season finale of 2010 as he kicked a 52-yard field goal with 17 seconds left to play to lift UConn to a 19-16 win over USF that sent the Huskies to their first BCS game in school history. Earlier in the fourth quarter of that game, he kicked a 50yarder. Teggart kicked a 27-yard field goal in overtime to lift UConn to a 16-13 win over West Virginia on Oct. 29 of last year. Hehadatotal ofthreefieldgoalsinthatgameandwasnamedtheBIGEAST SpecialTeamsPlayeroftheWeekforhisefforts. Those “final play” game-winners were the second and third of his career as he ended the 2009 regular season in fine form as he booted a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Huskies a 29-27 win over USF. Dating back to 2009, Teggart had kicked a field goal in 14 of the past 15 games. Teggart kicked a 29-yard field goal with 1:10 to go that tied the game vs. Notre Dame (Nov. 21, 2009) -- a contest the Huskies eventually won in overtime.

STADIUM/ATTENDANCE NOTES RENTSCHLERFIELD The Huskies moved into brand new Rentschler Field in East Hartford for the 2003 season. 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. SELLOUTSTATS The Huskies have sold out 29 of their first 52 dates at Rentschler Field, including a stretch of 12inarow. UConn has played to 96.7-pct. of capacity all-time there, drawing 1,998,010 fans, or an average of 38,423 per game. RENTSCHLERFIELDPROVESFRIENDLYFORHUSKIES The Huskies went 7-0 at home in 2007 at Rentschler Field and also 6-0 last year. UConn’s 3-4 mark at home in 2006 was its only sub.500 record at Rentschler Field. The seven home wins in 2007 set a school record for a single season which was previously set in 2004. UConn has now won ten consecutive games at Rentschler Field. UConn presently stands at 40-12 all-time at Rentschler Field including a 23-4markinnon-conferencegames. MICHIGAN,TENNESSEEWILLVISITRENTSCHLERFIELD Following UConn’s trip to Ann Arbor on Sept. 4, the Wolverines will come to Rentschler Field on Sept. 21, 2013 to take on the Huskies. UConn will also play a home-and-home series with Tennessee beginning in 2015 with the Volunteers coming to Rentschler Field on Sept. 26 with a return trip to Knoxville on Sept. 3, 2016. Other upcoming non-conference opponents coming to Rentschler Field include Iowa State (2011), North Carolina State (2012) and Maryland (2013).

EASTHARTFORD,Conn.-Freshman running back Lyle McCombs(Staten Island, N.Y) rushed for 141 yards and four touchdowns in his first collegiate game as the University of Connecticut football team won their 2011 season opener, 35-3, over Fordham before a crowd of 34,562 at Rentschler Field. The game marked the Connecticut debut for head coach Paul Pasqualoni, who tied Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech for the most overall wins by a BIG EAST coach. They both have 108 victories. Pasqualoni was the first Connecticut football coach to win his debut since 1923.

The Huskies initial drive ended in a punt after two first downs, but on their second possession began to force their will on their FCS opponent after forcing a Fordham three-and-out. A six-play, 58-yard drive was capped by a McCombs two-yard run. The key play on the drive was a 24-yard pass from Johnny McEntee (Fullerton, Calif.) to Isiah Moore(Cambridge, Mass.). The Huskies started the redshirt junior McEntee, but Pasqualoni played three signal callers in the contest. Redshirt freshman Scott McCummings (Natick, Mass.) and true freshman Michael Nebrich(Burke, Va.) both played well in their Connecticut unveilings. Early in the second quarter, the Huskies took over from their own 20 and McCombs had his first big play from scrimmage, rambling 60 yards before being caught at the Ram two-yard line. Two plays later, McCombs scored from the one and Connecticut had a 14-0 lead. The Connecticut defense, which was spectacular all day, got its first turnover of the season when redshirt freshman safety Byron Jones (New Britain, Conn.) picked off a Peter Maetzold pass. On the next play from scrimmage, McCummings hit redshirt junior tight end Ryan Griffin(Londonderry, N.H.) with a beautiful 55-yard catch-and-run off of play action to put the Huskies ahead by three scores. The Huskies kept that 21-0 lead until midway through the third quarter when McCombs capped drives with scoring runs of five- and one-yard. McCombs' four touchdowns was the first time a Connecticut footballer achieved that feat since Jordan Todmanturned the trick against Cincinnati in 2009. McEntee completed eight-of-12 passes for 113 yards, while Nebrich was three-of-eight, for 60 yards and one interception. The McCummings scoring pass to Griffin was his only attempt of the game. Griffin set a career-standard with his 97 receiving yards.
