EAST HARTFORD — Saturday’s game against UCF was business as usual for star UConn wide receiver Noel Thomas.
The senior posted a career-high 165 yards in the Huskies’ 24-16 loss to rival UCF (4-3, 2-1 the American) for his fourth-straight game with at least 100 receiving yards. Thomas’ nine receptions gave him 76 on the year, passing former teammate and mentor Geremy Davis for the most receptions in a season since UConn (3-5, 1-4 the American) joined the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2003.
For the first time in the history of the Civil Conflict rivalry between UConn football and UCF football, the trophy will belong to the team formerly known as the Citronauts from Florida. UCF (4-3, 2-1 The American) rode its stingy defense and a poised performance from quarterback McKenzie Milton to a 24-16 win over the Huskies (3-5, 1-4 The American) on a rainy day at Rentschler Field.
A recent study shows that UConn ranks among most liberal universities in faculty, having 13 Democrats to 1 Republican.
If you asked 10 people on the street what “sustainability” means, they would probably say it’s about preserving the environment, but that’s not all it is to Julian Agyeman, professor of urban and environmental policy and planning at Tufts University.
