Terry Baltimore Cup Nominee No. 1: The Dave Teggart kick that sent UConn to the BCS

For the next two weeks we will be hosting The Terry Baltimore Cup, a 12-play tournament to pick the best play in UConn football history. Today, we're introducing the top four seeds, which get a bye into next week's quarterfinals. Tomorrow we'll have our first opening round matchup. Our first nominee? The Dave Teggart kick that sent UConn to the BCS.

The Date: December 4, 2010

The Game: UConn vs. USF, with a trip to the BCS on the line

The Play: After a miserable 0-2 start in conference play, which featured a bad loss to Rutgers and an excruciating loss to Louisville, the Huskies went on a tear, winning their next four conference games and putting themselves in a position to clinch the Big East title and a trip to a BCS bowl with a win over USF in Tampa. The offense struggled all day (UConn's only touchdown was a Lawrence Wilson pick-six), but kicker Dave Teggart bailed the Huskies out again and again. He hit a 50-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to put UConn up 16-6, but when USF tied the game up late the Huskies needed to call on him one last time.

With 19 seconds on the clock Teggart lined up for a 52-yard field goal, which was a career-long distance. Fortunately for UConn fans he delivered what might be a career-best kick, drilling the ball straight down the center with power to spare. UConn had their title and their BCS bid, all thanks to Teggart's powerful leg.
