His overall college coaching record stands at 143-79-1 (34-17 at WCSU, 107-59-1 at Syracuse and 23 at UConn). For the previous five seasons, Pasqualoni had served on NFL staffs -- with Dallas in 2005-07 and ‘10 and with Miami in 2008-09.

UConn had 11 former players that were on NFL rosters in 2009 (a school high) and that number has been matched as 11 former Huskies are currently on NFL rosters. The 2009 NFL Draft made history for the Huskies as four UConn players were selected in the first 63 selections. UConn is the only BIG EAST school to have four players picked that early since the league was reorganized in 2005. UConn had two players selected in the 2010 NFL Draft and four more in ‘11.

HUSKIESONTHEREBOUND UConn is 27-16 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 81 scoring drives of at least 80 yards (including two on Saturday vs. WMU) while the Husky defense has surrendered just 56 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 in the 2011 opener and one vs. Buffalo and Western Michigan. UConn also holds a 20-6 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. UConn had a 93-yard drive on Saturday vs. Western Michigan. HUSKIESDOMINATINGONBOTHSIDESOFTHEBALL Over the past 106 games, UConn has outgained its opponent 64 times.

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 JohnnyMcEntee(Fullerton, Calif.) -- Has put some separation in the QB race with his performances vs. Buffalo and Western Michigan...walk-on who had 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...started the Vanderbilt game and was 10 of 27 in the air for 99 yards and three interceptions and was sacked four times...started the Iowa State game and was 13 of 30 in the air for 188 yards with one interception...was 12 of 21 in the air for 213 yards and his first two career TD passes...did not throw an interception...was 22 of 39 in the air for career-high 300 yards with four TDs passes...became the first Husky since 2006 to have four TD pases in a game...the four TDsaretiedforfourthinUConnsingle-gamehistory. * 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...carried the ball five times in the Vanderbilt game..was 1 for 3 in Iowa State game with a 39-yard TD pass to Kashif Moore....had five carries for seven yards vs. Buffalo...had five carries for 17 yards vs. Western Michigan. * 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...was one of two in the air vs. Vanderbilt...was 1 for 3 in the air for two yards vs. Iowa State...also had four carries vs. Iowa State...was 0 for 1 in the air vs. Bufffalo and has been playing the first series of the second quarter. EXPERIENCEONTHELINE Whoever gets the nod at quarterback for the Huskies plays behind an experienced offensive line. Senior center MoePetrus (St. Laurent, Que.) has started 43 consecutive games for the Huskies -- and the last 30 at center. Senior right tackle MikeRyan (Tamaqua, Pa.) returns after earning All-BIG EAST first team honors last year and has started 26 games over the past two years. Junior Adam Masters (Bethesda, Md.) plays right guard and started ten games last year -- the final six at right tackle. Sophomore Kevin Friend (Warrentown, Va.) plays at left guard and had a pair of starts last year.

>> 2011 UConn football GOINGTOTHETIGHTEND As the offensive philosophy of head coach PaulPasqualoni and his offensive coordinator George DeLeone develops at UConn, throwing to the tight end has obviously been emphasized. The third-leading receiver on the team is redshirt junior Ryan Griffin (Londonderry, N.H.), who has 12 receptions this year for 228 yards and a TD. He had four receptions for 73 yards vs. Western Michigan. (ISIAH)MOOREHITTINGHISSTRIDE UConn senior wide receiver IsiahMoore (Cambridge, Mass) had a career-night vs. Iowa State as he had eight catches for 143 yards for two career highs. He also had a 41-yard reception, which topped his career high. His previous single-game career highs were four receptions in four different games, 76 receiving yards at Baylor in 2009 and a 28-yard long reception in that same game. He backed that game up with another good game vs. Buffalo as he was UConn’s leading receiver with four receptions for 49 yards and a long of 16. He had two catches for 18 yards vs. Western Michigan. Moore is UConn’s leading receiver with 16 catches for 246 yards this season.

He is the second leading receiver on the team with 16 receptions and leads the team with three receving TDs. WILLIAMSBACKONRECEIVINGEND UConn junior NickWilliams (East Windsor, N.J.) had been making headlines over his career mostly in the kickoff return department. Although he was always part of the WR group, Williams led the country in kickoff returns last year and was a First Team All-BIG EAST pick in that spot. UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni has been using Williams more in a receiver role this year, but entering the Sept. 24 game vs. Buffalo, Williams still only had two career receptions -- both of them in 2009. Williams broke out of that with a pair of catches vs. the Bulls for 113 yards, including his first career receiving TD. Williams first reception of the night was a 64-yarder from McEntee late in the first half that set up a UConn TD with 15 seconds to go to give the Huskies a 10-3 halftime lead. He then had his first career TD reception on a 49-yard catch from McEntee with 4:52 left in the game to seal the UConn win. Williams had one catch for 26 yards vs. Western Michigan.

WEsT vIRGINIA DEFENSE NOTES

LOTSOFSTARTS,STARTERSBACK Connecticut returns one 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 Teddy Jennings (Dayton, Ohio) made his first career start against Fordham at defensive end. He responded by making eight tackles -- with 2.5 for a loss. He enjoyed another outstanding game vs. Vanderbilt as he made four tackles with 2.5 for a loss and he had three tackles vs. Iowa State. He had two tackles vs. Buffalo with a sack. Jennings moved into the starting lineup 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. Joseph did make his 2011 debut vs. Buffalo and had five tackles himself and then had three vs. Western Michigan. SMALLWOODIMPRESSESEARLY Connecticut redshirt freshman Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) is currently the second-leading tackler on the UConn team with 42 tackles. He has started all five games for UConn in his first collegiate season and also seems to have a knack for making the big play. Against Vanderbilt, he returned a fumble 64 yards for a touchdown and then had a 28-yard interception return vs. Buffalo. The interception vs. the Bulls came at a key time as it came on a third and goal play from the UConn five with the Huskies nursing a 10-3 lead.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES TEGGARTCAREERLEADERINFIELDGOALS,POINTS Redshirt senior DaveTeggart (Northborough, Mass.) has connected on all 113 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 58 career field goals is a school record, which he broke with a 24-yard FG vs. Cincinnati in 2010.

Teggart’s25fieldgoalslastyearwasaschoolsingle-season record.He had a total of 14 field goals in 2009 which is tied as the sixth-highest in school history while his 13 as a freshman is seventh. 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.

He had a total of three field goals in that game and was named the BIGEASTSpecial Teams Player of the Week forhisefforts. 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 has kicked a field goal in 18 of the past 20 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. Teggartisthefirstkickerinschoolhistorytosuccessfullyconverthisfirst11fieldgoalattempts. NICKWILLIAMSANDKORETURNS UConn sophomore NickWilliams (East Windsor, N.J.) had a breakout night in his receiving career against Buffalo on Sept. 24, but remains the primary UConn kickoff and punt returner. Williams led the country in kickoff returns last year with 35.29 yards per return and he returned two kickoffs for TDs in 2010. Against Pittsburgh he returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. Williams also had a 100-yard KO return for a touchdown vs. Rutgers -- the fourth in school history. WilliamsbecomesjustthesecondHuskyevertohave two KO returns for a TD in a career -- joined by Tyvon Branch, who had both of his in 2007. This year he has 14 kickoff returns for an average of 21.6 yards per return and nine punt returns for an average of 4.8

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.

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. The Connecticut defense held the Rams to just 169 total yards of offense and was led by redshirt junior linebacker Jory Johnson(Mobile, Ala.), who had 11 tackles. Redshirt junior defensive end Teddy Jennings (Dayton, Ohio) had 2.5 tackles for loss.

McCombs rushed for his 118 yards on 27 carries and has now rushed for at least 100 yards in his first two collegiate games. Husky junior quarterback Johnny McEntee(Fullerton, Calif.) was 10 of 27 in the air for 99 yards, but had three interceptions. Larry Smith was 12 of 24 in the air for 140 yards while Jerron Seymour had eight carries for 70 yards. On Vanderbilt's first drive of the fourth quarter, redshirt freshman Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) returned a fumble 64 yards with 10:34 left to go, giving UConn its first lead of the game, as the Huskies took a 21-14 lead. On the fumble return, Vandy had the ball at the UConn 36 and Sio Moore's(Apex, N.C.) hit of Smith jarred the ball loose and Smallwood was home free. After the UConn defense forced Vanderbilt to punt on their ensuing drive, McEntee threw his third interception of the night, as Robby Barbieri returned the interception 50 yards to tie the game at 21-21. Vanderbilt was able to take the lead with 2:56 left, as Carey Spear converted a 31-yard field goal for the 24-21 Vandy advantage. UConn trailed 14-3 at halftime, but scored the only ten points of the third quarter to make it 14-13 entering the final stanza. On Vanderbilt's third play from scrimmage of the second half, junior Jory Johnson (Mobile, Ala.) picked off a Smith pass to give UConn the ball at the Vandy 17. UConn could only move the ball six yards to set up a 28-yard field goal by senior kicker Dave Teggart(Northborough, Mass.). The Huskies then cut the lead to a point, 14-13, as redshirt freshman Byron Jones(New Britain, Conn.) blocked a punt in the endzone. It was UConn's first blocked punt since 2008 and the first for a TD since 2002. Connecticut moved the ball efficiently on the first possession of the game as it marched the ball to the Commodore 12-yard line with a first down. The Huskies could only manage four more yards, which set up a 25-yard field goal by Teggart. The field goal gave Teggart the UConn career scoring record with 262 points, which he extended later in the game. Vanderbilt went four and out on its first possession, but McEntee threw a first down interception picked off by Kenny Ladler that put the ball at the UConn 42. Vanderbilt came right back on the next play with a 42-yard TD pass from Smith to Chris Boyd to give the Commodores a 7-3 lead. Vandy took a 14-3 lead on a 40-yard rush by Seymour on a second and ten play that capped a six-play 80 yard drive. The Commodores had 134 yards of total offense in the first quarter and 82 of them came on scoring plays. The Commodores maintained the lead 14-3 at halftime after a second quarter that did not feature any scoring as UConn only had 35 yards of total offense with VU having 28.

Connecticut redshirt senior wide receiver Isiah Moore recorded careerhighs in receptions and yards with eight catches and 143 yards. The winning score for Iowa State came with 9:08 left in the game when Darius Reynolds leaped over a pair of UConn defenders and raced across the goal line for a 20-yard touchdown reception from junior quarterback Steele Jantz. Jantz threw three interceptions in the first quarter but finished with 200 yards. The Huskies used a trio of quarterbacks with redshirt junior Johnny McEntee taking the majority of snaps as he went 13-30 for a season-high 188 yards. Redshirt freshman Lyle McCombs led the UConn running game with 46 yards on 18 rushes. Sophomore Shontrelle Johnson and redshirt sophomore James White split the carries for ISU with 14 apiece. Johnson went for 65 yards, while White ran for 44. Connecticut opened the game with a 10-play, 57-yard drive that resulted in a touchdown for redshirt freshman quarterback Scott McCummings. McCummings, in the game for just his second play, was initially ruled down at the one-yard line, but after an official review it was determined that the ball crossed the goal line prior to his knee hitting the ground. For the game, McCummings rushed for 38 yards on 10 carries. The two teams would trade turnovers several times in the remaining minutes of the first quarter as redshirt junior Dwayne Gratz picked off Jantz on the Cyclone's first play from scrimmage. Gratz returned the ball 19 yards to the ISU 41-yard line, but UConn gave the ball back on the very next play as McEntee was intercepted by Steve Ruempolhamer. Jantz was intercepted again, with less than three minutes to play in the first, by redshirt freshman Byron Jones, which set up a 52-yard field goal by redshirt senior kicker Dave Teggart to put the Huskies up 10-0. For Teggart, it tied his career long. Before the end of the first, UConn would force a third turnover as Jory Johnson grabbed a ball off a pass broken up by linebacker Sio Moore. Despite outgaining Iowa State 101-4 in the first, Connecticut went into halftime up only 10-7 as the Cyclones held a 114-13 advantage in the second quarter. ISU got on the board when James White broke loose for a 26yard touchdown run to cut the Huskies lead to three. The Cyclones went on top early in the third quarter when White flipped the ball to junior WR Josh Lenz on a reverse, who threw a deep ball for Reynolds to take into the end zone. UConn came back with a 50-yard field goal from Teggart, the second time in his career he converted two field goals of 50 yard. With 6:44 left to play in the quarter, Iowa State added to its lead with a 36-yard field goal by senior kicker Zach Guyer, to go up 17-13. Connecticut regained the lead early in the fourth quarter as McCummings hooked up with redshirt senior wide receiver Kashif Moorefora39-yardtouchdowntotakea20-17lead.McCummingshas completedtwopassesontheseason,bothfortouchdowns.

FOURTHQUARTER UC-Nick Williams 49 pass from McEntee (Teggart kick) 4:52 (6 plays, 64 yards, 2:32) Attendance-18,215 AMHERST,N.Y.-The University of Connecticut football team posted a 173 win against the University at Buffalo before a crowd of 18,215 at UB Stadium. UConn junior quarterback Johnny McEntee (Servite, Calif.) took the majority of snaps and was 12 of 21 in the air for 213 yards and two touchdowns, the first two of his career. Junior wide receiver Nick Williams (East Windsor, N.J.) sparked the Husky offense with a pair of big plays, the first of which was a 64-yard catch and run that set up the first Connecticut touchdown of the game. Williams' second catch was another catch and run, going for 49 yards and a score with 4:52 left in the game to seal the win. Redshirt freshman quarterback Scott McCummings (Natick, Mass) ran the ball 5 times for 7 yards while freshman QB Michael Nebrich (Burke, Va.) attempted just one pass. Husky redshirt freshman Lyle McCombs (Staten Island, N.Y.) had 30 carries for 61 yards. UConn redshirt senior Isiah Moore (Cambridge, Mass.) made a team-best four receptions for 49 yards. Branden Oliver led Buffalo in rushing with 23 yards on 85 carries while quarterback Chazz Anderson was 18 of 39 in the air for 192 yards and ran for 30 yards on seven rushes. For the second time this season, the Huskies held their opponent to just three points, the first of which came in a season-opening 35-3 win over Fordham. Despite just the one score, the Bulls moved the ball for 314 yards, including 122 on the ground, opposed to UConn's 292 yards of total offense. The Huskies led at halftime 10-3 and the third quarter was scoreless. UCconn redshirt freshman linebacker Yawin Smallwood (Worcester, Mass.) made the biggest play of the quarter as he made an endzone interception on a third and goal play by the Bulls at the UConn five. Buffalo had moved the ball 80 yards on 11 plays on that drive. UConn took that 10-3 halftime lead when it scored the first touchdown of the game with 15 seconds left to go. The drive began on the UConn 17 as McEntee threw a 15-yard pass to McCombs to move the ball to the Husky 32. McEntee then hooked up on the longest Husky pass play of the year on a 64-yard connection to Nick Williams to put the ball at the Bull 4. McEntee then threw a four-yard TD pass to redshirt junior fullback Mark Hinkley (Kanehoe, Hawaii) for the UConn lead. It was the first TD pass in McEntee's career and the first TD reception of Hinkley's. After a scoreless first quarter, the two teams opened scoring by trading field goals in the second quarter. Peter Fardon gave the Bulls a 3-0 lead on a 28-yard field goal with 5:28 left in the quarter to cap a 13 play-57 yard drive. Fadron had missed a 30-yarder at the beginning of the second quarter. UConn broke into the scoring with a 47-yard field goal by senior Dave Teggart (Northborough, Mass.) that ended an eight-play 51-yard drive. Teggart had a 49-yard FG attempt blocked in the first quarter.

Kashif Moore had two touchdown catches and 112 yards receiving and Lyle McCombs added 136 yards rushing and a 26yard touchdown reception for the Huskies. Alex Carder threw for a career-high 479 yards and five touchdowns to lead Western Michigan. Two of those scores were caught by Jordan White, who had his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season, catching 12 balls for 173 yards. He was one of three Bronco receivers to go over the century mark. Robert Arnheim had 113 yards and Chleb Ravenell added 123 and two fourth-quarter touchdowns, including a 41-yard catch that turned out to be the game winner. After making a 26-yard catch at the Western Michigan 13-yard line with 45 seconds left, UConn tight end Ryan Griffin fumbled. UConn scored the first of the fourth quarter's five touchdowns, when McEntee found McCombs open behind the Broncos' blitzing linebackers for a 26-yard score to give UConn its only lead at 24-17. But Carder led the Broncos right back on a 9-play 80-yard drive, finding White in the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown that tied the game. The Broncos held UConn to a three-and-out, and then went 62-yards to take the lead again on a 14-yard pass from Carder to Ravenell. UConn tied it again when McEntee scrambled and found Nick Williams on a fourth down from 26 yards out with just over 2 minutes left. Two plays after UConn's kickoff went out of bounds, Ravenell raced down the right sideline and reached over cornerback Gary Wilburn to bring in a 41-yard touchdown with 1:35 left. Arnheim beat Wilburn down the right sideline and made a one-handed 32-yard catch to set up the Broncos second touchdown, an 11-yard pass from Carder to tight end Dallas Walker. The Broncos went 66 yards on their first drive of the second quarter and scored when White grabbed a slant pass and dragged several UConn defenders into the end zone for a 25-yard catch and run. The Huskies didn't cross midfield until McCombs took a handoff at his own 7-yard line with just over 6 minutes left in the half, bounced off a tackle and ran 65 yards before tripping on the grass. That set up a 9-yard touchdown pass from McEntee to Moore. Moore's second touchdown, a 3-yard reception on a play-action fake, was set up by his 47-yard catch and run. The 5-play 72-yard drive brought UConn to within 17-14 midway through the third quarter.
