Quarterback Scott McCummings ran for two touchdowns and Lyle McCombs ran for 152 yards and a score to lead Connecticut to a 28-21 win over Syracuse on Saturday, keeping alive the Huskies hopes for a winning season. After being used as a change-of-pace option for much of the game, McCummings took over the offense for UConn (4-5, 2-2 Big East) in the fourth quarter, and led them on an eight-play 62 yard drive, running the ball in from 7-yards out for the winning score with just under 5 minutes to play.

It was the fifth straight win for UConn against Syracuse.
