USF came to East Hartford Saturday afternoon, ran for 313 yards, scored a touchdown on a fake field goal and beat UConn 48-22. Head coach Randy Edsall probably put it best when he said, “It wasn’t good.”
Last week against UCF, Kevin Mensah was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dreadful game for the Huskies, taking 23 carries for 123 yards, good for an average of 5.3 yards per rush. This week against USF, he had a harder time finding space, taking his 21 carries for just 79 yards, an average of 3.3 yards per rush.
USF will be visiting the Huskies at Rentschler this Saturday for a conference matchup between the two 1-3 teams. UConn is coming off of three straight losses, with the most recent coming against UCF. The Huskies took a 56-21 shellacking in which quarterback Steven Krajewski went down with a broken clavicle.
“After evaluating the program throughout the season and during the recruiting process, I decided to make these changes to my staff,” head coach Randy Edsall said in a statement. “I appreciate all the work these four men have done and thank them for their effort and dedication during their time at UConn.”
Losers of five straight and with just four games remaining in the season, the UConn Huskies (1-7, 0-4 American) have a chance to build momentum for the home stretch against Tulsa (1-7, 0-4 American) this Saturday.
