South Florida Beats Connecticut 13-10

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Marvin Kloss hit two field goals, and Aaron Lynch returned a fumble 44 yards for a touchdown as South Florida beat UConn 13-10 on Saturday.

It was the Bulls second consecutive win without an offensive touchdown. USF (2-4) is 2-0 in the American Athletic Conference after beating Cincinnati last week.

Kloss’ 44-yard field goal with just over 4 minutes left capped a more than 7 minute fourth-quarter drive, and was the game winner. It was his ninth consecutive field goal. He had a 47-yarder in the first half.

Lyle McCombs had a career-high 164 yards rushing and a touchdown for Connecticut, which has lost five straight to open a season for the first time since 1977. The loss spoiled the debuts of interim coach T.J. Weist and freshman quarterback Tim Boyle.
