Connecticut was selected to play in the 2010 PapaJohns.com Bowl following a tumultuous 7–5 regular season that included five losses by a total of just fifteen points, a double-overtime victory at Notre Dame, and the murder of cornerback Jasper Howard. The Huskies faced South Carolina, who also had 7–5 regular-season, highlighted by wins over then-No. 4 Mississippi and then-No. 15 Clemson. Pregame coverage focused on the tragedy that marked the Huskies' season, as well as on head coaches Randy Edsall of Connecticut and Steve Spurrier of South Carolina.
Connecticut scored twice in the first quarter: on a one-handed 37-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver Kashif Moore and then on a 33-yard field goal after South Carolina failed to convert a fourth-down play at its 32-yard line. Running back Andre Dixon scored for UConn on a 10-yard rush early in the fourth quarter. South Carolina scored its sole touchdown after the game had effectively been decided, on a two-yard run by Brian Maddox.
