Video: UConn Huskies Football Late Trickery Fails In 9-6 Loss To Mizzou

If the UConn Huskies football team were playing baseball, they would be hitting .333 going 1-for-3 on trick plays against the #22/20 Missouri Tigers. This isn’t baseball and the one that worked didn’t come when the UConn Huskies needed it to.

UConn Huskies backup QB Tim Boyle pass on a fake field goal with 45 seconds left was intercepted by Mizzou’s Anthony Sherrils to allow the Tigers to escape with a 9-6 win in front of 70,709 at Faurot Field in Columbia, MO.

The UConn Huskies fall to 2-1 on the season. Missouri improves to 3-0.
