UConn Football Report

Scout.com's report on the Connecticut football team (5-4, 2-3 Big East).

INSIDE SLANT

Coach Randy Edsall's reunion tour continued with a trip to Georgia Tech on Saturday, but ended in disappointing fashion.

Edsall, the Yellow Jackets' defensive coordinator in 1998, couldn't lead his current team to victory. Connecticut suffered a 30-10 loss in Atlanta.

Edsall, who also played and coached at Syracuse, dropped a 42-30 decision to the Orange on Oct. 30. The Huskies need one more victory to become eligible for the postseason.

Quarterback Dan Orlovsky passed for 205 yards and receiver Keron Henry reeled in six receptions for 65 yards, but Connecticut was issued consecutive losses for the first time since October of 2002.

Tailback Cornell Brockington, who entered the game as the Big East's leading rusher, managed just 43 yards on 18 carries. Georgia Tech took a 20-3 halftime lead and never looked back.

Connecticut will host Buffalo in its final home game on Saturday, then travel to Rutgers for a Thanksgiving Day showdown.

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

LOOKING GOOD
Connecticut didn't do much right in a 30-10 loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday. The good news is the Huskies still have the opportunity to become bowl eligible with one win. They should get it when they face Buffalo (2-8) on Saturday.

STILL NEEDS SOME WORK
The Huskies converted just 3 of 17 third-down opportunities against Georgia Tech.

ROSTER REPORT
DE Tyler King (broken leg) is sidelined indefinitely.
