When it all came down - Marvin Kloss simply lined up and kicked the game winner.

Kloss' 44 yard field goal with just under four minutes gave South Florida a 2-0 American Athletic Conference record and a 13-10 win over the pesky, but winless Connecticut Huskies.

In a game that the USF offense failed to score a touchdown, it was the drive put together by back-up quarterback Bobby Eveld that stands out.

Starting at their own 7 yard line, Eveld and the offense put together a time-consuming drive of 66 yards - more than a third of the total offensive yards prior to the drive - which ended on Kloss' field goal.

Two plays earlier though, the Bulls had a chance for the knockout blow. On 2nd and 10, Eveld found Steven Bravo Brown behind the UCONN secondary, but Brown dropped a sure touchdown pass.

Eveld was 3-of-4 on the drive, including two third down conversions. Ryan Eppes caught a slip screen on third and one from the 18, and later Andre Davis caught a slant over the middle for 11 yards to the UCONN 28.

After a Tice run for two and Bravo-Brown's drop, coach Willie Taggart called time out and Willie Davis took a safe hand-off for no gain, but moved the ball to the left hash.

Kloss did the rest.

The game started rather ignominiously as Eveld threw an interception on the first drive which led to UCONN's first points.

The offense continued to struggle, netting 12 yards in the first quarter - and Ryne Giddins made the play of the game with a strip of true freshman Tim Boyle that Lynch scooped and scored from 47 yards out to give the Bulls their first lead, 7-3.

UCONN's Lyle McCombs had a career high 164 yards, including a 52-yard scamper for a touchdown to give the Huskies a 10-7 lead on the first play of the second quarter, but Kloss tied the score on the next drive, kicking a 44 yarder.

For the second game in a row, the Bulls special teams got a blocked field goal - with Michael McFarland once again doing the honors. This time, however, there was no score on the play as DeDe Lattimore was pushed out of bounds and the Bulls offense stalled.

Tice finished the game with 12 carries for 74 yards. Willie Davis picked up a critical third down conversion from deep in USF territory and finished with 7 carries for 33 yards.

The Bulls improved to 2-4, 2-0 in the AAC. UCONN drops to 0-5, 0-1 in the conference.
