Cincinnati makes it interesting
By Brian Bennett
So Connecticut wants to get to the BCS? Let's see what the Huskies are made of in another pressure situation.
UConn and Cincinnati traded turnovers and punts for most of the third quarter, but a Bearcats drive ended with a Zach Collaros touchdown with 8:42 left to make it 24-17. Cincinnati was aided by three pass interference calls on cornerback Dwayne Gratz against Armon Binns and a questionable call on the Collaros score when it looked like his knee might be down. West Virginia fans like these officials.
Anyway, UConn showed a lot of resiliency against Pitt and West Virginia at home, but with the BCS bid so close there's a bit of pressure on right now. Time for the Huskies to show they're BCS-worthy with a strong finish.
