Two members of the UConn Huskies football team were honored by the Big East for their efforts in the 40-22 win over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. The win for the Huskies prevented Rutgers from clinching a share of their first-ever Big East title.

Nick Williams and Trevardo Williams were both named to the Big East Weekly Honor Roll.

Nick Williams was key for the Huskies especially in the third quarter when he had two big returns that led to two UConn touchdowns. All told on the day, he finished the afternoon with 158 yards on four kickoff returns and returned one punt for 30 yards. He was our offensive player of the game.

Trevardo Williams, no relation to Nick and our defensive player of the game, had six tackles, including four sacks for a total of loss of 30 yards, and one forced fumble in the game.

The UConn football team is back in action on Saturday afternoon at 12 p.m. when they'll take on the Cincinnati Bearcats at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati, OH. If the Huskies win, they'll become bowl-eligible.
