One the best football games I have ever seen was the Pitt-UConn game in November 2006 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford CT. The two Big East teams went at each other in the roller coaster battle all day long and it wasn’t decided until UConn’s D.J. Hernandez ran for a two point conversion in the second overtime to give the Huskies a 46-45 win.
Hernandez then fired the ball out of Rentschler Field in celebration.
And then got mobbed in the endzone by his teammates in jubilation as the Huskies won a big game.
