EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)   Lyle McCombs ran for 130 yards and Dave Teggart kicked three field goals as Connecticut beat South Florida 16-10 on Saturday without scoring an offensive touchdown. Cornerback Byron Jones ran a third-quarter fumble back 10-yards for what turned out to be the winning score after defensive tackle Twyon Martin stripped South Florida running back Darrel Scott deep in UConn territory. B.J. Daniels threw for 164 yards and ran for 64 and a touchdown.

But the South Florida quarterback also threw two interceptions and had a key fumble. The Bulls (4-2, 0-2 Big East) failed to convert on a fourth down with just under 2 1/2 minutes left, and the Huskies (3-4, 1-1) ran out the clock. Teggart, who beat South Florida with last-minute field goals in their two previous meetings, hit from 18, 46, and 28 yards.
