The Huskies lost a nailbiter to then No.15 Michigan 24-21 at Rentschler Field and the Huskies had a quite a few recruits there…

“What I said to them was, ‘this is the kind of atmosphere, this is the kind of fan support, this is the kind of game day conditions you’l play in at the University of Connecticut,” UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni said on the post-game call Sunday. “On our schedule there will be, our conference will be a very tough conference, our non-conference opponents that will come in and out of here are going to be be high-level people just like what you saw tonight.’ So it was certainly for recruiting, for exposure, for our program, it certainly was a very, very good night, no question.”

We had a lot of kids there. We had a great time with them in the tent before the game. We had a great time with them on the sideline. As disappointing as it was, they were all in the lockerroom after the game and we got a chance to talk to them, say hi to them and they had a chance to be a a part of great effort and really, a very good college football game so it was unfortunate. We’re disappointed we lost but it was a great game in the state of Connecticut, in the northeast, in our conference, for our university and I thought we got a lot out of it.”
