Connecticut Is BCS Bowl Bound
Now they are BCS bowl bound.
A 52-yard field goal from Dave Teggart gave the Huskies a close, thrilling 19-16 victory over USF late Saturday night to clinch a share of a three-way tie atop the Big East standings. And by the power of the tiebreaker in the Big East, the Huskies will be the conference’s representative in the BCS for the 2010 season.
The Huskies finish 5-2 in the conference, tied with West Virginia and Pittsburgh, but with head-to-head victories over both teams, can claim to be the best team in the conference.
Connecticut now awaits their fate in the BCS bowl selection process, with a Orange or Fiesta Bowl bid likely in their future. However, it likely matters very little to the surprise Big East champions, as few even expected to contend for the conference title this season.
