Brief Bowl History: For history before the the 2013 season, check out the wiki page. In 2014, BitPay became the sponsor for the bowl, renaming the bowl to the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. The 2014 bowl game accepted bitcoin as a payment method for tickets to the game, becoming the first college football game to accept bitcoin as a payment method. BitPay has since decided not to continue sponsorship so it currently just the St. Petersburg Bowl.
Connecticut Connecticut Huskies
2015 Season Record: Connecticut 6-6 (4-4) Result
Villanova 6-5 W 20-15
Army 2-9 (0-0) W 22-17
Missouri 5-7 (1-7) L 6-9
Navy 9-2 (7-1) L 18-28
BYU 9-3 (0-0) L 13-30
UCF 0-12 (0-8) W 40-13
South Florida 8-4 (6-2) L 20-28
Cincinnati 7-5 (4-4) L 13-37
East Carolina 5-7 (3-5) W 31-13
Tulane 3-9 (1-7) W 7-3
Houston 11-1 (7-1) W 20-17
Temple 10-2 (7-1) L 3-27
Key Players this Season:
  1. CB Jamar Summers - Sophomore (Orange, NJ) All-AAC First Team CB, 24 Tackles, 7 interceptions for 102 yards and 1 TD.
  2. RB Arkeel Newsome - Sophomore (Ansonia, CT) 174 touches for 760 yards, 8 TDs overall
  3. QB Bryant Shirreffs - Redshirt Sophomore (Jefferson, GA) 2420 yards overall (1992 passing, 428 Rushing). 220 yards per game. 12 TDs overall
Biggest Plays this Season:
  1. RB Arkeel Newsome runs 90 yards to blow the game wide open against ECU
  2. Backup QB Boyle lines up a lateral throw to Garret Anderson, who lines up a pass to Noel Thomas for the game winning touchdown against Houston
  3. In an otherwise ugly game, Jamar Summers intercepts a pass and runs it back for a Touchdown, defeating Tulane 7-3.
Season Summary: Under second year Head Coach Bob Diaco, the Huskies went from 2-10 to 6-6, a marked improvement considering they haven’t reached the postseason or had a season winning percentage of or above .500 since 2010-11. While the team still has its struggles, it has remained competitive throughout the year, including a huge upset of the highest ranked G5 school, Houston.
Why we are going to win: UConn is 33rd nationally in total defense (352.3 yards allowed per game), but the Huskies are even better against the pass, being ranked 21st (187 yards a game). UConn is 19th in points against, only letting up an average of 19.8 points per game. UConn is tied for 11th nationally in interceptions with 17, and sophomore cornerback Jamar Summers ended the regular season tied for third in the country. This stout defense will try and shut down the Marshall offense.
Marshall Marshall Thundering Herd
2015 Season Record: Marshall 9-3 (6-2) Result
Purdue 2-10 (1-7) W 41-31
Ohio 8-4 (5-3) L 10-21
Norfolk State 4-7 W 45-7
Kent State 3-9 (2-6) W 36-29
Old Dominion 5-7 (3-5) W 27-7
Southern Miss 9-3 (7-1) W 31-10

North Texas 1-11 (1-7) W 30-13
Charlotte 2-10 (0-8) W 34-10
Middle Tennessee 7-5 (6-2) L 24-27
Florida International 5-7 (3-5) W 52-0
Western Kentucky 10-2 (8-0) L 28-49
Key Players this Season:
  1. QB Chase Litton - True Freshman (Tampa, FL) 2426 yards overall (2387 passing, 39 yards rushing). 22 TDs overall
  2. WKR Deandre Reaves - Senior (Sterling, VA) CUSA Special Teams Player of the Year, 47 receptions for 617 yards with 4 TDs and 14 PRs for 178 yards and 2 TDs. Highlights
  3. LB Evan McKelvey - Senior (Moncks Corner, SC) CUSA defensive player of the year, 113 total tackles.
Biggest Plays this Season:
  1. Deandre Reaves with a 70 yard punt return in the dismantling of FIU (along with the black jerseys marshall has only worn once in honor of the 45th anniversary of the infamous plane crash)
  2. 4th down in overtime and down by 7, Chase Litton rolls to the left and connects with Davonte Allen in a clutch pass to save the game against Kent State.
  3. This is another spectacular catch made by devonte Allen in a losing effort to MTSU.
Season Summary: Last season was the best season under Doc Holiday’s tenure at Marshall, finishing the season 13-1 with a CUSA championship, bowl win over NIU in the Boca Raton bowl and finishing #23 in the final AP poll. Doc Holliday's Thundering Herd wasn't able to repeat as Conference USA champions in 2015, but Marshall is headed to its third consecutive bowl game and fourth in six years. Despite losses to Ohio and a heartbreaking loss in 2 OT to Middle Tennessee State, Marshall entered the last week of the season in position to win the Conference USA East title for the third consecutive year. The Thundering Herd fell in a winner-take-all game at Western Kentucky for the CUSA East title and finished the season 9-3 (6-2).
Why Marshall is going to win: Storrs, Connecticut is home to one of the worst offenses in the FBS this season. Connecticut averaged 17.8 points per game, and ranked 107th or lower in scoring, yards per play, third-down conversions and sacks and tackles for loss allowed. The Herd presents major worries for the leaky Husky O-line, because of DE Gary Thompson and LB Evan McKelvey. Marshall generated a C-USA-leading 27 turnovers this season, and held opponents to just 201 passing yards per game. True freshman quarterback Chase Litton has effectively controlled the offense in Birdsong’s absence with the help of a committee of running backs including Remi Watson, Keion Davis and Tony Pittman which are combined for more than 1,200 yards. Holiday is undefeated in bowl games as head coach of the Thundering Herd, going 3-0.
Why you should watch the game: This is the first meeting between these two teams and should be a defensive struggle. Marshall’s Deandre Reeves has been a particular highlight for their special teams, with three returns for touchdowns, so be sure to watch out for him on kick returns! UConn’s CB Jamar Summers is also a playmaker for their defense, with game-clinching interceptions against Tulane and Houston, so there is sure to be a lot of action during this game.
