EAST HARTFORD – UConn sophomore running back Max DeLorenzo scored two touchdowns and senior cornerback Taylor Mack had two interceptions to help UConn defeat Rutgers 28-17 before 22,163 at Rentschler Field Saturday.

DeLorenzo’s second touchdown, early in the fourth quarter, put the Huskies back on top for good, 21-17 and the Huskies tacked on another score when quarterback Casey Cochran (25 of 33, 311 yards, 2 TDs) found Brian Lemelle for a 3-yard score with 3:04 left to play.

Mack’s second interception of the game – third of the season – quickly followed.

UConn led most of the game with the exception of a short-lived 17-14 Rutgers advantage in the fourth but the Huskies quickly answered on the next drive when Cochran hit Deshon Foxx (9×117) for the key play, a 40-yard reception, on an 8-play, 80-yard drive in which DeLorenzo (15×52) gave the Huskies the lead back, 21-17 with 14:22 to play.

UConn improves to 2-9, 2-6 in the American while Rutgers (5-6, 2-5) will have to wait and win against South Florida next week to qualify for a postseason bowl.

    It is nice to come home to a sanctuary you can call your own, after a good
    days work. Now that we have some of the basics out of the way, who are you targeting as customers.
    But, when executed improperly, your beautiful slice of Paradise can quickly become a massive headache.
