Cincy Holds On, West Virginia to a BCS Bowl
     UCONN trailed 28-6 going in to halftime, and fought back to make it a one possession game with over four minutes remaining.  They could not stop Cincy with a little over two minutes left on 3rd and 2, and Cincinnati was able to convert and hold on for the win.  UCONN outscored Cincy 21-7 in the second half.
     UCONN was playing to be bowl eligible with a win, and Cincy was playing to create a 3 way tie for the Big East title with Louisville and West Virginia.  Cincy successfully does so and with the tiebreaker rules, West Virginia will receive the automatic BCS Bowl bid.  UCONN ends a disappointing season, the first under new head coach Paul Pasqualoni, with a 5-7 record.
