In the process, they not only became bowl-eligible, but Randy Edsall's resurgent bunch are also now in the thick of the Big East Conference title race.
The Huskies have struggled on the road this season against Michigan, Temple, Rutgers and Louisville, according to Bleacher Report, but, Jordan Todman ran roughshod over the overmatched Orange defense, amassing 130 yards and two touchdowns in the win. And, the Huskies defense came up big.
The win ensures a bowl game for UConn, but even better, the Huskies also have a realistic a chance to win the Big East outright for the first time ever.
UConn is tied with West Virginia at 3-2 and a game behind Pittsburgh.
Regardless, UConn is almost certain to be headed to a post-season bowl for the fourth straight season.
