UConn Football Falls to Navy 56-10


Josh Lactis: It’s Friday Night Football here
and the UConn Huskies are taking on a six and one Navy Team here at Rentschler Field.
For Uconn, they’re looking to build off of a big win against UMass last week, while for
Navy, they’re looking to continue the stellar season that they have going so far. The scoring
started right off the bat in this game as Navy took one to the house on a 58 yard run,
putting them up seven nothing, but UConn bounced back quickly as Jack Sergio showed off his
arm on a big play during the next drive, a drive that would end with an Art Tompkins
touchdown reception. After that, Navy took control of the game. Their defense picked
off Jack Sergio, as his first of two interceptions on the day and the only score UConn was able
to muster from that point on was a field goal at the beginning of the second quarter.
Navy’s offense rode the ground game from there. Through this game, navy had three turnover
receptions for 165 yards, but they had 293 rushing yards to go along with seven rushing
touchdowns. UConn did have a rushing presence of its own however, as junior standout, Kevin
Mensa, logged 107 rushing yards on the day himself. In addition, Cameron Ross had a nice
receiving day as he caught six balls for 38 yards and even through the troubles, Jack
Sergio was able to put up 205 yards on the game. After the game, Coach Etzel had a lot
to say about the missed opportunities for the Huskies throughout the night. Coach Etzel: Just didn’t play very well. Had
our opportunities, like I said, early and had some guys, like Jack, just tried to crush
too much and defensively we had that quarterback right there and we missed a tackle, he takes
it for a touchdown and so, there was things there. They’re a very good football team,
but we didn’t help ourselves. Josh Lactis: This loss will bring the UConn
Huskies record down to two and seven while it will raise Navy’s to seven and one on the
season. The Huskies look to bounce back next week against Cincinnati, the number 17th ranked
team in the country and they’ll be playing that in Cincinnati. From Rentschler Field,
