 STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut is switching kickers after missing three of four field goal attempts in a 12-10 loss to Rutgers last weekend.
Redshirt freshman David Teggart will replace senior Tony Ciaravino, who is 9-for-15 on field goal attempts this season. The two have been competing in practice all season. Teggart might have a slightly stronger leg, UConn coach Randy Edsall said.
``It would be no different than any other position,'' Edsall said. ``If somebody's not performing and we felt there was somebody that was as capable or more than capable to go in and replace that person, we would do that at the other positions.''
The Huskies had a chance to beat Rutgers on Saturday with 1:09 remaining, but Ciaravino's 42-yard field goal attempt hit the right upright. Ciaravino also was wide left on a 43-yard attempt, and hit the right upright on a 25-yard try.
Teggart might not be the only new face at a key position when UConn (5-2) hosts Cincinnati (5-1) on Saturday.
Quarterback Zach Frazer sustained what Edsall would characterize only as a head injury in the loss to Rutgers and was still being evaluated on Tuesday.
The sophomore has played for the Huskies since starter Tyler Lorenzen was lost to a knee injury during UConn's win over Louisville on Sept. 26.
Frazer sustained a concussion at the end of UConn's preseason training camp, and was described by Edsall as being ``fuzzy'' after the Rutgers game, but the coach would not say whether doctors believe his injury was a second concussion.
If Frazer can't play Saturday, redshirt freshman Cody Endres would get the start.
Endres has completed 4-of-5 passes for 49 yards in two games for UConn.
``If Zack is playing, I have 100 percent confidence in him, if Cody Endres is playing, I have 100 percent confidence in him and if (fourth stringer) Johnny McEntee's got to go in the game, I've got 100 percent confidence in Johnny,'' Edsall said.
Edsall ruled out switching receiver D.J. Hernandez, who began his UConn career at quarterback, back to that position.
