TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - B.J. Daniels ran for a first-quarter touchdown before leaving in the fourth with an injury as South Florida stopped a school-record six-game losing streak by beating Connecticut 13-6 on Saturday night.
Daniels was hurt on a 15-yard run inside the UConn (3-6, 0-4)10 just over five minutes into the fourth. The senior quarterback couldn't put any weight on his left leg as he was helped from the field.
The Bulls settled for a 28-yard field goal by Maikon Bonani later in the drive to take a 10-6 advantage. Bonani added a 50-yard kick to extend the lead to 13-6 with four and a half minutes left.
South Florida (3-6, 1-4) had dropped 12 of its last 13 Big East games dating to November 2010. The Bulls squandered a 20-point halftime lead en route to a 37-36 loss to Syracuse on Nov. 27.
