The talent is evident.
But the results?
Not just so yet. UConn's run game has come alive. Boyle's throwing ability is on display, but two dropped TD catches by receivers and then a strip sack fumble recovery for a TD has USF in the game.
The game is tied at 10.
UConn should be up big in this game. USF, without its starting QB and running back can't move the ball consistently. But, the Huskies are unable to take advantage of the plays on the field.
Boyle had Spencer Parker for a TD on his second drive with a 25-yard BB into the end zone. It went off his hands. Boyle had a wide open Deshonn Foxx for a 50 yard TD, but the ball was a little over thrown and Foxx couldn't stretch for the ball and had it hit off his forearms.
Add in a strip-sack fumble return by Aaron Lynch for a TD, and this game is tied.
Boyle is comfortable and looks in command. He's not as accurate, chalk it up to adrenaline, but he is making some plays with his feet. He's 6 of 15 for 51 yards. Boyle has a 19 and an 11 yard run. Lyle McCombs had a gorgeous 52-yard TD run that is going to be a highlight. McCombs has 135 yards rushing on 10 carries. I didn't see him out there after the TD run. Not sure if he is hurt or just rotation.
The Bulls' offense is abysmal. Bobby Eveld is 5 of 19 with one interception. USF had most of its yards on the final drive of the half. UConn has a 213-140 edge in offense, and it was more dominating than that with a large portion of the yardage coming on final drive of the half.
Huskies should be up 3 TDs, but have left plays all over the field.
