Last Minute FG Gives UConn Win Over UMaine [VIDEO]
UConn kicker Bobby Puyol hit a 37-yard field goal with 11-seconds left in the game to beat the UMaine Black Bears 24-21 in an opening night thriller.
For much of the night Maine had the lead in Joe Harasymiak's first game as head coach. It began with a 20-yard TD pass from Dan Collins to Josh Mack in the first quarter.
UConn scored a TD in the second and third quarter to grab a 14-7 lead.
But the Black Bears tied the game on a Collins to Jaleel Reed TD pass on the last play of the third quarter.
Then early in the fourth, Maine's Najee Goode stripped UConn QB Bryan Shirreffs and rumbled to a 74-yard score. The Bears lead 21-14.
The Huskies answered with a TD and then the last second field goal won it.
Maine QB Dan Collins finished 19-for-33, 269 yards and 2 TDs. The Bears rushed for just 40 yards.
Next on the schedule for Maine - at Toledo and another FBS game on September 10th.
