According to Carl Brandt, the post World War II era was a great time for UConn’s football program.  Many of these “mature males” played teams that seemed to be made up of “kids” just out of High School.  The score below is an indication of one such game.  Mr. Brandt recalls another score of something like 105 to 0, but doesn’t have an official photo of it.
