The Huskies currently have five quarterbacks on their roster, not including the newly committed Russell Dixon, and the coaching staff made it clear that all five will be given a chance to win the starting job. However, there really are three that are serious contenders, and quarterbacks coach Mike Moyseenko broke them each down.

Hand up, I was wrong. In The Daily Campus’ first roundtable of the year about the most exciting game on UConn’s football schedule, I chose UMass. First of all, it was a trick question. There are no exciting games involving the 2018 edition of UConn football. Not unless you are a sadist and enjoy watching a young secondary get ripped to shreds.

UConn lost by a score of 56 to 17, letting up over 650 yards of total offense in a game mired by, as head coach Randy Edsall put it, “self-inflicted wounds.” The Huskies committed seven penalties for a total of 93 yards, as if the Knights needed any more help moving the ball down the field.

It was never going to be an easy task for the UConn Huskies football team to go on the road and beat the undefeated No. 18 UCF Knights. Still, the Huskies put forth a stellar effort despite some key errors in a 49-24 loss to the Knights Saturday afternoon at Spectrum Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

After one week, one football game and one come-from-behind win, the UConn Huskies already have a quarterback controversy. In early August, newly-hired Head Coach Randy Edsall made a splash when he announced junior college transfer David Pindell would be the 2017 starting quarterback for the Huskies over redshirt senior Bryant Shirreffs. Shirreffs had been at the helm of the Huskies’ offense for 21 games over the past two seasons including an appearance in the St. Petersburg Bowl. This decision didn’t last very long.
