EAST HARTFORD – 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.

“[UCF] played hard, and well, and made enough plays to win the football game,” UConn head coach Bob Diaco said after the game.
