Western Michigan’s Desmond Bozeman nearly causes Connecticut’s quarterback Chandler Whitmer to fumble the ball during Saturday’s game.

By David Drew

     Bozeman, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., (Dillard High School) made the play that sealed the win for WMU Saturday. On first-and-15 in the fourth quarter, with the Broncos leading 24-17, Bozeman stripped the Huskies quarterback of the ball, scooped it and ran untouched 53 yards to the end zone. Bozeman had a career high 12 tackles with a career best in sacks (2.0) and tackles for loss (2.0). The fumble recovery was the first defensive score of the year for WMU and first career score for Bozeman. It was the first fumble recovery for a TD for the Broncos since Sept. 19, 2009.
