With Army clinging to a 28-21 lead, Chris Carnegie returned his second interception 99 yards up the left sideline for a touchdown to lift the Black Knights to a 35-21 win over UConn, their first victory at Yankee Stadium since 1960.
UConn pulled to within 28-21 with 2:06 to go, improbably recovered the onside kick, and marched all the way to the 6 before Carnegie picked off Chandler Whitmer at the 1 and ran it all the way back to clinch it.
Quarterback Angel Santiago ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries to lead a balanced rushing attack. The Black Knights (3-6) never trailed but almost faced overtime before Carnegie's clutch pick-6.
Joe Walker added two touchdowns on the ground for the Black Knights, who racked up 325 rushing yards to break a three-game losing streak.
