UConn's seniors will be honored before the game Saturday at Rentschler Field.
Denzell Allen, WR: 2011 transfer from Rhode Island hasn't seen action on the field, but Ledyard native was on Dean's List at URI and will get degree in psychology.
Jimmy Bennett, T: A starter who could return next season after a career's worth of injuries before this season. The accounting and economics major likes being educated, so he might elect to return, which would help the Huskies tremendously.
John Delahunt, TE: Quietly enjoying best season of his career with 17 catches for 220 yards and a touchdown. Unselfish and great blocker.
Blaise Driscoll, QB: A first-class young man. Driscoll, a Trinity transfer and son of Avon Old Farms football coach Kevin Driscoll, was a walk-on at UConn. He wowed the crowd with some late-game heroics in the Blue-White game a couple of years back.
Dwayne Gratz, CB: Outstanding player who will be sorely missed. He will be playing in his 50th career game Saturday and is usually up to the challenge in big games — had 10 tackles at Michigan in 2010 and an interception return for a touchdown in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl (he also had an INT in this season's opener against UMass). Was second-team All-Big East last season; has eight career interceptions.
Ryan Griffin, TE: Will go down as one of the best tight ends in school history. The second-team All-Big East player has been a force for the Huskies (26 catches, 399 yards, 5 TDs) although he's 100 yards off the total he had last season. He is second all-time in receptions (113) and receiving yards (1,415) by a tight end.
Jory Johnson, LB: A quiet but very effective captain. Johnson is second on the team in tackles with 86, including six for loss. He led the Huskies in tackles last year with 97 after totaling seven tackles in 2010. The Huskies will miss his steadiness. Johnson is playing in his 45th game.
Adam Masters, OT: The Huskies have missed Masters since his season-ending knee injury at Syracuse on Oct.19. The team's most experienced lineman has also been its most versatile. A captain this year, Masters was not only respected by his unit but by the entire team.
Johnny McEntee, QB: Last year's starter as a walk-on, McEntee led the Huskies to a 5-7 season, but the biggest win of his career might have come last week when he threw an overtime touchdown pass in relief of injured starter Chandler Whitmer to help UConn beat No.19 Louisville.
Sio Moore, LB: The emotional leader on the defense and one of its most violent hitters, Moore is fourth on the team in tackles with 69. Moore has 271 career tackles and 17 sacks, a career-high eight this season.
Mike Smith, WR: Second-leading receiver on the team in yards (353) and is tied for second in receptions with 28. Smith wore the No. 6 in honor of close friend and former Husky Jasper Howard. Smith was the Huskies leading receiver in 2010 (46 catches, 615 yards, 2 TDs).
Martin Tartaglino, FB: Joined the team during spring practice as a walk-on from Torrington. Tartaglino is an urban and community studies major.
Nick Williams, WR: Emerged as a receiver toward the end of his career and will go into his 41st game with 41 career catches (550 yards, two TDs). Williams, a captain, is a national-level returner, having scored touchdowns on two kickoff returns in 2010 and two punt returns in 2012. He's only the fifth player in school history to have scored on both.
Trevardo Williams, DE: Became the all-time sacks leader at UConn with 30.5 — 25 in the past two seasons, including 12 this year. The Bridgeport native is an exploratory major. Williams is quiet but his speed and penchant to get quarterbacks has been awfully loud; second-team All Big East last season.
Ryan Wirth, DT: Has been more than the coaches could have expected at one of the defensive tackle positions after UConn lost starters Kendall Reyes and Twyon Martin. Wirth, seventh on the team in tackles with 45, emerged quickly as a leader.
Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB: Another leader by example, Wreh-Wilson showed in one game why he'll be sorely missed, batting away every pass thrown his way at Louisville before snaring the key interception in the end zone that led UConn to the upset. The interception was the eighth of his career (two went for touchdowns in 2010). He has 171 return yards, eighth in school history.
