Connecticut gets critical TD before half

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- This one's not over yet, and if the game turns in Connecticut's favor, the turning point will be easy to pinpoint.

On third-and-10 from Connecticut's own 44-yard line, wide receiver Michael Smith made a great juggling catch and raced 44 yards. It marked the second straight third-and-long conversion for the Huskies, who haven't fully taken advantage of Michigan's young secondary. The pass to Smith certainly had to be a confidence boost for Huskies quarterback Zach Frazer, who looked very shaky for most of the half.

I loved Connecticut's decision to rush to the line on fourth-and-goal from the 2, catching Michigan a step slow as Jordan Todman scored.

Connecticut certainly can attack this Michigan defense, and the Huskies aren't out of this one at all, down 21-10.
