Chandler Whitmer’s first-quarter rushing touchdown was the first score on the ground of his UConn career. Whitmer finished the day with 35 yards rushing, a career-high.

Whitmer’s 88-yard touchdown pass to Deshon Foxx in the third quarter was the longest UConn play from scrimmage since a 98-yard Terry Caulley run against Army in 2006. It was the longest pass play since a 90-yard Dan Orlovsky touchdown pass to Jason Williams against Temple in 2004. Overall, the play was the seventh-longest from scrimmage and fourth-longest pass play in program history.

Whitmer’s 303 passing yards marked his highest output of the season, and most since tossing for 349 against Maryland on Sept. 14, 2013. It was the third 300-yard game of his career.

Foxx finished with four catches for 120 yards, the fourth 100-yard game of his career and second this season.

Thomas Lucas made two receptions for 80 yards, a career-high. He came into the contest with 35 career receiving yards and had catches of 43 and 37 yards.

Noel Thomas caught a 32-yard touchdown in the third quarter, the longest catch and first touchdown of his career. Thomas finished with career-highs in receptions (3) and yards (57).

Ron Johnson made his first start and set new career-highs in carries (13) and rushing yards (45). His 22-yard rush in the third quarter was a yard shy of his season-long.

With a catch in the first quarter, Geremy Davis now has at least one reception in 33 straight games. That is tied for the ninth-longest streak in the FBS.

Byron Jones recorded his second interception of the season in the second quarter, the eighth of his career.

Marquise Vann notched 10 tackles, his third game this season with double-digit stops. He has made at least nine tackles in six of seven games and has a team-high 66 on the season.

Jefferson Ashiru made 11 tackles, tying a career-high with his second double-digit tackle game of the season.

Andrew Adams (10), Kenton Adeyemi (9) and John Green (6) all set new career-highs in tackles.
