"I thought we did some things really good and we did some things not so good, dug ourselves a hole, 17-0," UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni said. "I'm proud of the way the kids hung in there and fought back. We had a chance at the end to possibly tie the game, kind of along the lines of the N.C. State game. But at the end of the day, in a game like this we turned it over twice. They did not."

"I'm clearly not happy with the sacks," Pasqualoni said after the game. "The sack times were a product of not getting getting the protection re-directed fast enough. They would show blitz on one side and they did a good job of showing one thing and doing another. You gotta adjust. I thought the kids got better as the game went on, but we gave up six sacks. One of them at the end was a very costly sack, strip sack for a touchdown. It's the most devastating play in football."

Boatright, listed at 6 feet, 160 pounds, spent part of the summer home in Chicago, playing in the NextLevel Pro-Am League, and his weight training has paid off.

"Janelle [Atkinson-Wignall] is our assistant and she is from Jamaica and has a lot of Caribbean connections," UConn coach Bob Goldberg said. "Chin was in Miami looking for a school, one thing led to another, we got her up for a visit and didn't think she'd come because of the cold north weather but she did end up coming. She's a delight to have. Diguan came up last year [for a visit]. We feel very fortunate to have them here."
