UConn wins in double OT
By Brian Bennett
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Connecticut has done the Big East a favor and possibly ended Charlie Weis' career at Notre Dame.
Andre Dixon scored from four yards out in the second overtime as UConn beat Notre Dame 33-30.
The win puts the Gator Bowl very much back in play for the Big East, as the Irish will have to win at Stanford next week to avoid going 6-6. UConn evened its record at 5-5 and finally won a close game.
Great win for the Huskies, more bitter disappointment for Notre Dame and Weis.
