Just when it looked like USF was well on its way to a shutout first half, Matt Grothe was stopped on a 4th and 1 quarterback sneak and UConn got the ball on the 45 yard line of USF. It was the best field position of the night for the Huskies.

The Huskies converted on two seperate third down situations to put the ball inside USF’s redzone, and then Huskies running back Donald Brown, who’s been silent all night, had his longest rush of the night, a 13 yard rush.

However, the Bulls finally stopped the Huskies on third down when Carlton Williams deflected a pass in the end-zone and Dave Teggart tacked on a 21 yard field goal to polish off a 12 play, 41-yard scoring drive.
