EAST HARTFORD – Two weeks can be an eternity when it comes to football.

Just two weeks ago, the UConn Huskies were absolutely crushed by the Memphis Tigers. Playing at home on a Friday night, the Huskies allowed a school-record 70 points and the Tigers exceeded 700 yards of total offense in a feat that may never be matched again in the UConn record books.

“The 70 points definitely put us in a reality check, something that really took everyone’s heart that night [against Memphis],” UConn linebacker Junior Joseph said. “The next day we took a stand and said that that’s never gonna happen to us again.”
