UCONN Huskies vs Fresno State Bulldogs 08/28/2021
The UCONN Huskies did not participate last season due to the COVID-19 situation and were forced to pull out. This team was getting ready to play their first year after departing the American Athletic Conference. The Huskies are still looking to build a winning culture for their college football team as it has only won six out of 36 matches for the past three years. Kevin Mensah is going to see action once again in 2019 and he will still be the quarterback for this season. He was able to throw 1,103 yards and had nine touchdowns back in 2019 and he will still have Cameron Ross by his side.

Fresno State Bulldogs
The Fresno State Bulldogs finished last season with a 3-3 record and finished in the middle of the Mountain West Conference. This team had its moment that after they lost their opening game, they won three straight matches against the Colorado State Rams, UNLV Rebels and Utah State Aggies. The Bulldogs were one of the top teams of the conference but lost back-to-back matches against the Nevada Wolf Pack and New Mexico Lobos ending their season on a sour note. Jake Haener will be the player that will lead the team and he was impressive last season throwing 2,021 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Players to Watch: J. Haener QB (CMP 150 ATT 232 YDS 2021 CMP% 64.7 AVG 8.7 LNG 71 TD 14 INT 5 SACK 24 SYL -200 RTG 153.4), B.
