Brendon Kay, UC make homecoming for T.J. Weist tough one in 41-16 win

The Connecticut Huskies traveled to Cincinnati Saturday looking for their first win of the season.

But like most teams, UConn found out it is tough to win at UC’s Nippert Stadium.

The Bearcats made it tough all day for the Huskies who are now 0-6, 0-2 in the new American Athletic Conference.

The loss also ruined the homecoming of UConn interim head coach T.J. Weist, who was an assistant coach for the Bearcats the past three seasons under Butch Jones who left to become the head man at Tennessee.

Weist took over after the fourth game this season when Paul Pasqualoni was fired.

Cincinnati QB Brendon Kay keeps getting better each game. He has played a “best”  game each time out this season. Saturday afternoon, he tied a career high in touchdown passes with four while completing 17 of 24 passes for 300 yards. Kay also rushed for a touchdown for 5-2, 2-1 Cincinnati.

South Florida hires Western Kentucky coach Taggart to replace Skip Holtz

South Florida has hired Willie Taggart to take over its struggling football program.

The 36-year-old has established himself as one of the nation’s top young prospects by turning around a Western Kentucky University football program that had a history of losing.

Taggart led the Hilltoppers to a 7-5 record in 2012 and will make their first postseason appearance since joining the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) when they take on Central Michigan in the Little Caesars Bowl.

Hilltoppers defensive coordinator Lance Guidry will lead the team in the bowl.

The Saturday press conference brought Taggart home to the Tampa Bay area where he grew up before going to play and later coach at Western Kentucky, which is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky on the Tennessee border.

Taggart replaces Skip Holtz, who was fired following the worst season in the Bulls 16-year history at 3-9, 1-6 in the Big East good for 8th place.

When University of Cincinnati QB Zach Collaros fractured his ankle in the November 12 loss to West Virginia at Paul Brown Stadium, it looked he was finished for the year.

But during his rehab since that date, Collaros has been ahead of schedule by two weeks according to doctors.

There is a chance that Collaros could play in today’s (December 31) game in the Liberty Bowl against Vanderbilt.

Collaros passed for 1,860 yards and 14 touchdowns. While he was absent for three games, head coach Butch Jones used the two-QB system of Munchie Legaux and Jordan Luallen that was good enough to win a piece of the Big East championship.

The Bearcats (9-3, 5-2 Big East) are returning to the postseason after last year’s diasppointing 4-8 record.

Their opponent, the Vanderbilt Commodores finished at 6-6 overall, 2-6 in the SEC. They’re making just its fifth bowl game ever and have a 2-1-1 record in the postseason. This will be their first-ever appearance in the Liberty Bowl, which is located in Memphis, four hours from the school’s home in Nashville.

UC and Vandy have two common opponents in Connecticut and Tennessee. The Commodores beat UConn 24-21 and lost to the Volunteers in overtime, 27-21. The Bearcats beat UConn 35-27 and lost to the Vols 45-23.

Jaguars owner Weaver fires Del Rio & sells team

Jack Del Rio knew the stakes when he went to training camp this season with his Jacksonville Jaguars. His job security became week-to-week once two things occured: 1) when he cut veteran quarterback David Garrard to go with rookie Blaine Gabbert and 2) when owner Wayne Weaver said he needed to make the playoffs to keep his job for a 10th season.

At 3-8 this season, Weaver fired Del Rio. He leaves the North Florida city with a 69-73 record, including 1-2 in two playoff berths. The Jaguars were not able to win the NFL’s AFC South in any of his nine seasons. The division also has Indianapolis, Houston and Tennessee.

Weaver also announced that he was selling the franchise to Illinois businessman Shadid Khan, who was born in Pakistan and is the owner of Flex-N-Gate bumper systems company.

The franchise, born in 1993, is worth $760 million according to Forbes magazine.

The 77-year-old Weaver named defensive coordinator Mel Tucker the interim head coach and gave general manager Gene Smith a three-year contract extension. Smith will head the coaching search.

The 61-year-old Khan’s purchase of the team is subject to NFL approval. League owners will be voting on December 14. If it is approved, the sale will become official January 4.
