Field Hockey: For the eighth straight week, the Huskies are ranked #4 in the NFHCA Coaches Poll. The Top 3 of Old Dominion, UNC, and Maryland also remained the same. Notably, however, Duke leapfrogged Syracuse to #5, relegating the Orange to #6. The Orange and Huskies will square off on Sunday at noon for the Big East regular season championship. But first, the Huskies host Boston University tonight at 7:00. That game can be seen on Huskies All-Access.

Michael Budd and
UMass Lowell in
Nashua, NH last night.
Men's Ice Hockey: Marcello Ranallo scored the game-winning goal in OT and the Huskies defeated UMass-Lowell, 3-2. UConn improves to 2-1-1 on the year. Miles Winter and Brant Harris also scored for the Huskies. This was an impressive victory because the Riverhawks were heavy favorites heading in. Hopefully this is a sign of a good seasonf or us. UConn's next game is on the road at Merrimack on Saturday at 7:00 PM. The Huskies then return home October 27th for a rare Thursday night game vs. Atlantic Hockey rival Holy Cross.
