EAST HARTFORD, Connecticut – # 21 UCF's successful start to the new season was hampered by defensive back injury Aaron Robinson's breach at Connecticut.
Robinson, a Redshirt sophomore cornerback, covered the kickoff on Thursday night when he seemed to collide with the head of another UCF player while making the tackle. Robinson had to be cut off from his shoulder pads near the point of impact as his team members knelt in prayer. He was taken off the field on a stretcher and gave the crowd the thumbs-up sign when he was rolled to an ambulance.
Robinson gave a thumbs-up as he left the field.
After the game, a 56 After the Knights' 17-win victory, coach Josh Heupel said Robinson was fine, but will stay overnight at a local hospital for observation.
Robinson moved from Alabama to UCF.
UCF extended the longest winning streak in The Nation to 1
