Former UConn TE goes after Grey Cup title

While we'll have to wait until the AFC and NFC championship games are played on Jan. 19 to find out if a former UConn player will be suiting up for the Super Bowl, there is a former Husky slated to play in today's Canadian Football League title game.

John Delahunt, a rookie fullback for the Hamilton TigerCats, has nine catches for 104 yards and two touchdowns despite missing a large portion of the season with a knee injury.

The 101st Grey Cup will begin at 6 p.m. and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network

There are a couple of other Connecticut connections in the game. Hamilton's head coach is Kent Austin lived in Woodbridge for a few years growing up while former Bloomfield High star Kory Sheets, a one-time UConn commit before flipping to Purdue, is Saskatchewan's top running back and was the CFL's second-leading rusher during the regular season.
