Before Wednesday night’s game against the No. 23 Temple Owls (21-5, 11-2 The American) is looked at, it is vital to look back on when the upstart Tulane Green Wave almost knocked off the No. 1-ranked UConn Huskies (26-0, 13-0 The American) on the road last Saturday.
UConn survived. Those are two words students and fans from Storrs are not used to hearing. The No. 1 ranked UConn Huskies (26-0, 13-0 the American) held on to defeat the Tulane Green Wave (16-11, 7-7 the American) by a score of 63-60 in what was the closest margin of victory ever for UConn against an AAC opponent.
