UConn Huskies News
9-8-14: The University of Connecticut Huskies hosted the Stony Brook Seawolves this week looking for their first victory of the young season. The Huskies held the Seawolves to just 16 points and won the game 19-16 to get their first win. The Huskies needed this victory after losing to BYU last week in embarrassing fashion 35-10. Neither team put up many yards as Connecticut only mustered 223 yards of total offense while Stony Brook put up 300 yards of offense. Connecticut threw less passing yards than Stony Brook, 196 yards to 142 yards, and rushed less, 104 yards to 81 yards, but took advantage of 12 Stony Brook penalties that set the team back 108 yards. Connecticut struggled to hold onto the football this week as they had two fumbles while the Seawolves did not have a turnover in the game but in the end the miscues didn’t matter. The Huskies led the game 19-10 heading into the fourth quarter before allowing a Seawolves touchdown with 1:53 left in the game.
