The dynamic duo is back again and hopefully for more deep balls and fades. UConn football head coach Randy Edsall and former quarterback-turned-ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky will compete in 13th annual 2019 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament.

Held on April 28-30 at Reynolds Lake Oconee Resort outside Atlanta, the event will feature a 13-team field of NCAA head coaches and celebrity alumni, competing for their share of $650,000 in scholarship and charity. The event began in 2007 and has since generated a total of $7.6 million in scholarship and charity.

In the two-man scramble, the duo will go up against the likes of Alabama’s Nick Saban and Mark Ingram, Clemson’s Dabo Sweeney and Bill Spiers, and Ohio State’s Urban Meyer and Jeff Logan. UConn’s winnings will be split between an endowed scholarship at the University of Connecticut and the Edsall Family Foundation Philanthropy Fund.

Orlovsky, the Shelton, Connecticut native, known by many for his presence throughout UConn football’s record books, is making a name for himself as an ESPN analyst.
