Running back Kevin Mensah ran into a similar wall as UConn was overwhelmed at the line of scrimmage in a game that Edsall said Tuesday would be the “most physical test we get all year.”
The UConn Huskies football team heads to Boston, Massachusetts Saturday to take on New England archrivals Boston College in a Gridiron Series matchup under the lights at Fenway Park.
UConn head coach Randy Edsall said that he and his team are looking forward to playing the Eagles at Fenway Park, and that it would be a good experience, especially for the team’s younger players.
“We’re gonna be playing an opponent (BC) that’s a very physical football team that likes to run the ball, use a lot of play action,” Edsall said.
The ConFLiCT is back, because what is dead may never die. This Saturday, the UConn football team will travel to Orlando, Florida to face American Athletic Conference rival UCF in their toughest task of the 2017 season.
The Huskies (3-6, 2-4 The American) have been thumped in two straight games, by Missouri and UCF, respectively. The Knights (8-0, 5-0 The American) are undefeated, ranked No. 12/14 in the nation, gunning for a spot in a New Year’s Six bowl.
Under coach Scott Frost, UCF has rebounded from a winless 2015 campaign to emerge as a national power this season.
