UConn Huskies football coach Bob Diaco has said more than once this season that they need to get the ball to running back Arkeel Newsome. They have been doing that with some good results.
At a time when it looked the East Carolina Pirates were going to mount a comeback against the UConn Huskies football team, Newsome broke off a 90 yard run for a touchdown.
That run would break the back of the Pirates as the UConn Huskies football team went on to a 31-13 win in front of 23,168 at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT.
The UConn Huskies football team improves to 4-5 (2-3 American) while the ECU Pirates fall to 4-5 (2-3 American).
True Blue UConn Offensive Player of the Game: Arkeel Newsome (UConn) – 25 carries for 179 yards and two touchdowns plus one catch for 41 yards.
