Despite outscoring the Bearcats 15 to zero in the fourth quarter, the Huskies' comeback attempt fell short as they lost their regular season finale to Cincinnati by a final of 35-27. The loss drops Connecticut to 5-7 on the season and officially eliminated them from bowl considerations.
Quarterback, Johnny McEntee was a key figure for both teams today. He was responsible for the Huskies' big deficit early as he turned the ball over twice in the first half – both of which resulted in defensive touchdowns for the Bearcats. Then he nearly led an epic comeback in the fourth quarter, throwing two touchdowns and converting a two-point attempt.
Both teams were sloppy with the football, turning the ball over three times a piece. The Huskies' turnovers just proved more costly. Both teams also racked up significant penalty yardage – 65 for the Huskies and 92 for the Bearcats.
