Daniels hurt in South Florida 13-6 win vs. UConn
SOUTH FLORIDA 13, CONNECTICUT 6
By MARK DIDTLER
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- B.J. Daniels ran for a first-quarter
touchdown before leaving in the fourth with an injury as South
Florida stopped a school-record six-game losing streak by
beating Connecticut 13-6 on Saturday night.
Daniels was hurt on a 15-yard run inside the UConn 10 just over
five minutes into the fourth. The senior quarterback couldn't
put any weight on his left leg as he was helped from the field.
The Bulls settled for a 28-yard field goal by Maikon Bonani
later in the drive to take a 10-6 advantage. Bonani added a
50-yard kick to extend the lead to 13-6 with four and a half
South Florida (3-6, 1-4) had dropped 12 of its last 13 Big East
games dating to November 2010. The Bulls squandered a 20-point
halftime lead en route to a 37-36 loss to Syracuse on Nov. 27.
Chad Christen had two field goals for UConn (3-6, 0-4), which
has dropped six of eight following a season-opening victory over
Massachusetts. The Huskies were coming off a bye week.
South Florida played without linebacker Sam Barrington, who was
suspended for the game. The team said the Bulls' leading tackler
was cited by police for driving with a revoked license.
Daniels put the Bulls up 7-0 on a 5-yard TD run with 4:08 left
in the first. He set a school record for career rushing
touchdowns with 25 on the score.
UConn got within 7-3 when Christen made a 50-yard field goal two
seconds before halftime. His second field goal of the game, from
37 yards with 4:28 to go in the third, made it 7-6.
The Huskies had failed to score during the second half in their
previous three games.
South Florida threatened to extend its early lead midway through
the second, but UConn cornerback Dwayne Gratz intercepted
Daniels' pass in the end zone.
South Florida was the only FBS team in the nation without an
interception until safety Jon Lejiste picked off Chandler
Whitmer's pass at the USF 10 with 6:27 remaining in the game.
A late UConn drive ended with 50 seconds to go when Elkino
Watson intercepted a Whitmer pass. Whitmer has thrown 13
interceptions this season.
