Syracuse's Alec Lemon (Arundel) finished his freshman year with a 56-31 road loss to Connecticut, but the wide receiver gave Orange fans plenty to look forward to for next season. Though he didn't start, Lemon had a huge day, catching nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Greg Paulus was connecting with Lemon all day, and their 3-yard hook-up with just more than a minute left in the third quarter pulled Syracuse with four points at 21-17. Lemon's longest reception of the game, a gain of 33 yards, brought the ball down to the Huskies' 10-yard line in the fourth quarter, and the Orange scored a touchdown on the next play to make the score 42-31 in UConn's favor. That was as close as Syracuse would get the rest of the way, however. Lemon also had catches of 30, 20, 17 and 16 yards in the contest. Sophomore Nick Speller (Edmondson) started at left tackle for the Orange, and senior tight end made Andrew Robinson (Calvert Hall) made one solo tackle on punt coverage in his final college game. Redshirt freshman starting safety Jerome Junior (Archbishop Curley) made seven tackles (three solo, four assists) for the Huskies in the victory.Baltimore native Matt Brown continues to tear it up in Temple's backfield. The Owls lost to host Ohio, 35-17 — ending a nine-game winning streak — but Brown had his second straight 100-plus-yard rushing game and scored his fourth touchdown in the past three contests. The freshman enjoyed his most productive game of the season on the ground, running for 172 yards on 25 carries. Brown's 9-yard touchdown run in the third quarter brought Temple within 26-17. His longest rush of the day was a gain of 26 yards on second-and-seven in the third quarter, and he also had runs of 24 and 23 yards in the game. Notably, Brown did not lose yardage on a single carry. He added an 11-yard kickoff return. Sophomore offensive lineman Sean Boyle (Calvert Hall) contributed a solo tackle on punt coverage, and fellow sophomore offensive lineman Pat Boyle (Calvert Hall) played, recording no statistics.
