IMO it will be a good road test and will not be a walk in the park.
Vandy held UConn to 193y total offense
in week 1 they gave up 323 to Elon
2. UConn has QB issues. That may have been obvious going into the game, considering the Huskies planned on playing three quarterbacks. But it is even more glaring now that they had such an anemic performance in the pass game in a 24-21 loss to Vanderbilt. Johnny McEntee ended up playing a majority of the game, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble. He had for just 99 yards passing in the entire game. Coach Paul Pasqualoni said he stuck with McEntee for continuity, but there was no offense. The Huskies failed to score a touchdown on offense. In fact, UConn the last time the Huskies scored an offensive touchdown against an FBS opponent was in the fourth quarter against Cincinnati on Nov. 27, 2010.
After reading some of this... I feel more confident. Still not sure if we can get the same team to show up next weekend for four quarters.
For now, I think we'll get the victory but it won't be easy. 24-20 ISU.
Yikes. Sounds like UConn has no QB. Their RB is decent with 27 carries for 118 yards against Vandy. ISU always matches up better with power running teams, so hopefully we can stop their offense and get some TO.
Our offense protecting the ball will be the key.
