In a game I was I unable to attend today due to some problems with my Jeep, the UCONN Huskies rebounded from the “Beergate” experience of last weekend, to defeat Army 21-7. This ends UCONN’s 2 game losing streak which may or may not have cost them a bowl bid.
Since I couldn’t attend, I had to resort to listening to the game on the radio, which isn’t so bad, since the voice of the Huskies affectionately known as “Joe D” was doing the game. It took UCONN about 5 and half minutes to score today as Terry Caulley broke loose a 98 yd run after a punt had them pinned deep at the two yard line. Later in the 1st quarter, the elusive Larry Taylor received some excellent blocking and returned a punt 72 yards for a UCONN touchdown.
Both teams were held scoreless until the fourth quarter when Army QB David Pevoto drove the Black Knights 80 yds for a touchdown. UCONN countered back with a time consuming drive of 6 minutes 17 seconds and 80+ yards culminated by a 1 yd run by UCONN QB Matt Bonislawski. Final Score: UCONN 21 Army 7.
Notes from the game:
- Terry Caulley’s 98 yard TD run was the 2nd longest in UCONN history.
- Terry Caulley now has over 3,000 yards in his UCONN career and today was his team leading 13th game with over 100 yds.
- Kicking game struggled again as Greg Vicidomino missed 3 field goals today. He did make 2 extra points today.
- Matt Nuzie was relegated to kickoffs today until he came in to kick the final extra point today.
- Darius Butler had two more interceptions against Army giving him 5 in two years.
