EAST HARTFORD, Connecticut (Ticker) -- Cornell Brockington ran
for over 100 yards and two touchdowns to lead Connecticut to a
29-0 victory over Buffalo.

Brockington rushed for 136 yards on 25 carries and opened the
scoring with a seven-yard burst less than five minutes into the
first quarter.

UConn (6-4) dominated Buffalo (2-9) on both sides of the ball,
holding the Bulls to five first downs and only 96 total yards
while racking up 477 yards of offense.

The Huskies opened a 22-0 lead on Brockington's second TD run, a
43-yard scamper with just over two minutes left in the third

Dan Orlovsky, who completed 28-of-38 passes for 283 yards and no
interceptions in his final home game, connected with Brandon
McLean for a 33-yard scoring strike in the fourth quarter to cap
the scoring.

With the win, the Huskies become bowl eligible for the second
consecutive season. Last year as an independent the Huskies went
9-3 but with no conference affiliation to guarantee a bowl
game, stayed home for the postseason.
