King Conn #23 in the BCS

As everyone knows UConn beat Louisville on Saturday night and held one of the best offenses in the country in check. Brian Brohm had his worst game of the season as the Connecticut defense proved it is one of the best in the nation. I know the Huskies were helped tremendously by a really, really crappy call on a punt where the UConn returner signaled for a fair catch but the refs didn't blow the whistle. However, that play was evened out shortly after when, on a UConn punt, a Louisville player touched the ball and the Husky gunner recovered at the 1-yd. line and the refs gave the ball to Louisville instead. So its even. Anyway UConn is finally getting some respect and is at 23 in the BCS standings and in the high 20s in most of the polls. The first-in-the-Big-East Huskies host South Florida on Saturday afternoon. If, before the season, you predicted this game would be between two top 25 teams than people would have called you insane and probably kicked you in the nuts for being so stupid.

PS- UConn's QB Tyler "Destroyer Class" Lorenzen is the real deal.
