Football: UConn stumped by Temple in regular season finale

The UConn offense simply could not solve Temple’s defense on Saturday night. It was a completely different team than last week’s win over then-ranked No. 13 Houston.

The Huskies gained just 138 yards of offense (a season low) and Temple Owls easily defeated UConn 27-3 in front of 28,236 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Quarterback Bryant Shirreffs did not play on Saturday against Temple. Shirreffs suffered a head injury in last week’s win over Houston. Tim Boyle started for the Huskies, but head coach Bob Diaco tried many different formations Saturday.
