Army (2-0) vs UConn (0-3) Game Preview


Why UConn Will Win

So is ANYTHING working here?

UConn started out the season getting rocked, the Randy Edsall era was over, and it responded by being nothing more than a light snack for Purdue in a 49-0 loss last week.

Army will run for well over 300 yards, the defense will be far better on third downs than it was last week against the Hilltoppers, and the great season marches on.
