Recap: Army vs. Connecticut

Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Angel Santiago rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns and Army's defense came up with a last-minute stop, as the Black Knights downed the Connecticut Huskies, 35-21, in a non-conference bout at Yankee Stadium.

Santiago had 25 carries and attempted just three passes, completing two for 38 yards for Army (3-6), which snapped a three-game losing streak. Joe Walker (31 rushing yards, 38 receiving yards) rushed in two scores, and the Black Knights ran for 325 yards as a team on 59 attempts.

For UConn (2-7), Chandler Whitmer threw for 170 yards, rushed for 68 yards and accounted for three touchdowns but also threw a pair of interceptions. Deshon Foxx led all players in catches (six) and receiving yards (54)

The only score of the first quarter came on a 2-yard touchdown run by Santiago at the 1:53 mark, which capped off a 16-play, 89-yard drive that lasted nearly nine minutes.

Army extended its lead to 14-0 midway through the second quarter when another lengthy drive (11 plays, 85 yards) ended with a 4-yard touchdown rush by Walker.

UConn cut into its deficit in the final minute of the half when Whitmer ran in a score from two yards out.

The Black Knights continued to milk the clock after halftime. Walker cashed in a 2-yard touchdown run to end a 12-play, 79-yard drive.

The Huskies made it a seven-point game, 21-14, early in the fourth quarter when Whitmer hooked up with Sean McQuillan for a 16-yard touchdown.

Army went ahead by 14, 28-14, with under five minutes to play on another Santiago rushing score, this time from one yard out, but UConn kept things interesting following a 1-yard touchdown pass from Whitmer to Noel Thomas with 2:06 left.

The Huskies recovered an on-side kick and moved the ball all the way to Army's 6-yard line in the final minute, but Whitmer's pass was intercepted by Chris Carnegie and returned 99 yards for a touchdown to seal the victory for the Black Knights.

Army held an eight-and-a-half-minute advantage in the time-of-possession battle and converted 7-of-12 third downs.
