UConn's Jesse Joseph goes out on top

Former UConn defensive end Jesse Joseph had one solo tackle, stopping Bloomsburg's Franklyn Quiteh after a two-yard run on the National Team's first defensive possession of the fourth quarter, to help his team to a 31-17 victory in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

Joseph was part of a defense which limited the American squad to an average of 3.7 yards on 29 carries.

Joseph, a native of Laval, Quebec,was second among UConn defensive linemen with 40 tackles during his senior season. He finished his career with 158 tackles and 14 sacks.

Unless he gets invited to another all-star game, the game was Joseph's final one was a college player. Regardless of what happens in the NFL draft, Joseph does have the option of heading to the Canadian Football League as he was selected in the third round of the 2013 CFL Draft by Montreal.
