UMass At Delaware: Post Game Notes
Oct. 10, 2009
Armando Cuko kicked a career-long 51-yard field goal near the end of the first quarter. It was tied for third-longest in UMass history with Chris Koepplin (2007). The record of 52 is held by Denis Gagnon (1971) and Sandro Vitiello (1978). Cuko did attempt a 52-yarder in the second quarter, which came up short.
Victor Cruz moved to 9th in career receiving yards with 118 in the game. He now has 1,490 to move past Steve Schubert (1,435) and Tim Berra. Jimmy Moore (1,494) is next on the list.
Cruz had his fifth 100-yard receiving game with 118 yards. It was his second this season, also reaching the mark against Albany.
Emil Igwenagu had a career-high six catches for 85 yards. He also had his first-career touchdown on a 52-yard juggling tightrope catch in the fourth quarter.
Andrew Krevis had his second-career touchdown reception on a 4-yard catch in the fourth quarter. He also had a 4-yard TD catch at Kansas State.
Jeromy Miles had his ninth-career interception and second in as many years against Delaware, in the second quarter.
Anthony Monette blocked an extra point in the first quarter, it was UMass' first blocked PAT since 2007 at Rhode Island.
Jeremy Horne had his longest kickoff return of the season on the game's opening kickoff, for 30 yards.
Perry McIntyre drew his first-career start at Sam Linebacker in place of injured Kurt Filler. He is the first true-freshman to start since Tyler Holmes in the 2008 season finale. Prior to that, the last true freshman starter was Brandon Freeman for three games in 2004 in the secondary.
Redshirt freshman Darren Thellen also started for the first time at strong safety.
