For the second straight season, Connecticut defeated South Florida without scoring an offensive touchdown. This should not be encouraged, but with a strong defensive effort and the leg of placekicker Dave Teggart, the Huskies put together a 16-10 win at Rentschler Field Saturday.

Last year Teggart kicked four field goals, including the game-winning 52-yarder with 17 seconds remaining that sent UConn to the Fiesta Bowl. Lawrence Wilson had a 55-yard interception return for UConn's only TD. Teggart kicked three Saturday and Byron Jones scooped up a fumble for a 10-yard TD return as the Huskies won their home conference opener.

Teggart was wearing pink socks Saturday for UConn's "Breast Cancer Awareness Game."
