Connecticut 35, Lehigh 17

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Dan Orlovsky threw three touchdown
passes and Connecticut capitalized on three Lehigh turnovers in the
Huskies' 35-17 win on Saturday.

It was the first game for the Huskies (4-2) without leading
rusher Terry Caulley, who tore a ligament in his right knee last
week in UConn's 47-13 loss at Virginia Tech. He was lost for the
season. Freshman Matt Lawrence started in his place and rushed for
88 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown.

The Mountain Hawks (3-2) were the only Division I-AA opponent on
UConn's schedule this season.

Lehigh's Chad Schwenk hit on 17 of 37 passes for 165 yards and a
score, but was picked off twice by Justin Perkins deep in Lehigh
territory.

Perkins' first-quarter pick turned the ball over on the Lehigh
30. Orlovsky struck quickly, hitting O'Neil Wilson for 29 yards on
the next play. Lawrence's capped the short drive with a 1-yard
scoring run with 1:33 left in the period.

The Huskies' Maurice Lloyd recovered Jermaine Pugh's fumble on
the Lehigh 25 late in the second quarter, setting up Orlovsky's
25-yard TD pass to Brandon Young for 14-3 UConn lead at
intermission.

Perkins' interception midway through the third quarter gave
UConn the ball on the Lehigh 18. Orlovsky hit Wilson on the next
play for an 18-yard strike.

Orlovsky also had a 4-yard scoring pass to Keron Henry in the
fourth quarter to cap an 89-yard drive. Tailback Chris Bellamy, who
also helped fill in for the missing Caulley, finished with 42 yards
rushing and an 8-yard scoring run.

Schwenk found Adam Bergen for a 6-yard TD pass in the fourth.
The Mountain Hawks' other score was a 3-yard pass from Kyle Keating
to Jason Beck as the subs from both teams ran out the clock.

Pugh led the Lehigh ground game with 79 yards on 22 rushes.
