The game began especially well for the visiting Orange, who put points up on the board just 51 seconds into the game. Wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo, who was added to the 2016 Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the nation’s most outstanding wide receiver on Tuesday, beat UConn cornerback Jamar Summers down the field for a 57-yard touchdown.

After the Huskies’ offense opened their day by going three-and-out on the ensuing drive, Etta-Tawo beat Summers again for a 30-yard touchdown this time. After two drives, Etta-Tawo had five catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns. For a typically strong UConn secondary that has struggled to begin this season, it was another inauspicious start.
