UConn kicker at his best against USF

David Teggart, the Connecticut kicker who has beaten the USF with his leg the last two years, apparently is at his best against the Bulls.

For his career, the junior had missed his only two field attempts from 50 yards or more out until nailing two against USF Saturday night in its 19-16 loss the UConn.

Teggart nailed a 52-yarder with 17 seconds left to break a 16-16 deadlock and secure the win. Earlier in the game, he connected from 50 yards out. He kicked a 42-yard field goal on the final play of the game to beat USF last season

Teggart connected on just 3 of 7 attempts from 40 to 49 yards out coming into the game. He is 9 for 10 from 30 to 39 yards away, 8 for 9 from 20 to 29 yards and 1 for 1 (1-19 yds).

His misses this year have come from 49, 48, 42, 40, 38 and 29 yards.
Coming into the USF game, Teggart’s longest field goal was 47 yards, which he did twice last year against North Carolina.

This season, he has converted 23 of 29 field goal attempts (79.3 pct) and has had two attempts blocked. For his career, he is perfect on extra points knocking in 97 straight.
