SCORING RECAP: UConn 28, Syracuse 21

Connecticut scored four touchdowns Saturday in a victory over Syracuse. Big deal? No not really. But here's a news flash for you: All four TDs were offensive. That's the best point production by the offense since that 38-31 loss to Western Michigan back on Oct. 1 when Johnny McEntee threw four TD passes.

After five turnovers in the first half, the offense settled in after halftime and scored 21 points. Those three TDs came on the ground. Lyle McCombs ran one in from 3 yards out and reserve quarterback Scott McCummings made use of his package of plays to score twice – on runs of 10 and 7 yards.

Here's how the big win came together for the Huskies.
