The Connecticut Huskies won only three football games last season, so they weren't taking any chances Thursday evening. 

UConn held a 27-20 lead over Holy Cross with 1:21 to play at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field when television cameras captured some humorous video. 

Senior quarterback Bryant Shirreffs was seen practicing taking a knee on the sideline ahead of his team's final possession of the contest. 

Shirreffs and the Huskies were eventually able to run out the clock for real and hold on to the seven-point victory to start the campaign 1-0.
