The Uconn football program entered the 2017 season on a six-game losing streak. The team’s last win came against Cincinnati on Oct. 8 of last year.
So when the Huskies found themselves in position to win the season-opener against Holy Cross on Thursday night, it led to a hilarious moment with quarterback Bryant Shireffs and offensive lineman Ryan Crozier.
As the clock wound down and UConn was looking to seal the victory, they had to head to the sideline to practice their victory formation.
That’s right; UConn was so used to losing that they forgot how to take a knee.

UConn’s victory wasn’t pretty, but they got the job done.
The Huskies initially trailed Holy Cross, 20-7, before rallying back to earn a 27-20 victory.
UConn returns to action next weekend when they host Charlie Strong and the USF Bulls. Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m. ET.
