STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Junior college transfer Tyler Lorenzen won quarterback competition for Connecticut and is slated to start the opener at Duke.
Coach Randy Edsall installed Lorenzen as the starter on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-5, 226-pound left-hander threw for nearly 3,000 yards and 26 touchdowns last season at Palomar Community College in San Marcos, California.
Lorenzen, a junior, enrolled at UConn in January and had been competing with sophomore Dennis Brown for the starting job.
The Huskies are coming off a 4-8 season in which they never found a consistent quarterback and finished 110th in the nation in passing.
