Your D had its best performance of the year, and you went under by one point.
Much, much more on both of these in a moment.
But for now, UMass and UConn, let’s get it on.
The defenses are still awful. That didn’t change in a week.
UMass is still giving up an average of 46 points per game to FBS teams, and even after last week, UConn is still allowing 51.4 points per game.
