Saturday, January 3, 2009. (AP) -- Donald Brown and a stout defense helped the Connecticut Huskies overcome a fumble-prone performance.
Brown, the nation's leading rusher, ran for a career-best 261yards -- including 208 in the first half -- and scored a touchdown in what might be his final college game, and UConn defeated Buffalo 38-20 in the International Bowl on Saturday.
The Huskies (8-5) overcame five first-half turnovers and a 20-10 deficit to win their second bowl game in three appearances since joining the Big East in 2004.
The Mid-American champion Bulls (8-6) had their breakout season under coach Turner Gill end with a loss in their bowl debut.
