Alex Carder threw for a career-high 479 yards and five touchdowns to lead Western Michigan to a 38-31 win over Connecticut on Saturday. Three players had over 100-yards yards receiving for the Broncos (3-2). Jordan White caught 12 balls for 173 yards and two touchdowns in his fourth 100-yard game of the season, Robert Arnheim had 113 yards and Chleb Ravenell added 123 and two touchdowns. Johnny McEntee threw for 300 yards and four touchdowns for UConn (2-3). Kashif Moore had two touchdown catches and 112 yards receiving and Lyle McCombs added 136 yards rushing and a 26-yard touchdown reception. UConn tight end Ryan Griffin fumbled after making a 26-yard catch at the Western Michigan 13-yard line with 45 seconds left. The loss comes at the end of a week when Connecticut expressed interest in joining the ACC if it expands further after poaching Big East teams Syracuse and Pittsburgh.
